IT may seem like just another book on the history of the Cold War - those 50 years or so when east and west plotted against each other for the upper hand in domination.

But this is the version of those years according to John Lewis Gaddis, who has been described as "the dean of Cold War historians".

He is currently professor of military and naval history at Yale University.

In this new book, Lewis Gaddis gives a wide-ranging study of the time from the end of the Second World to the collapse of the Soviet bloc and uncovers the dynamics that drove the age.
