9780765808851: Understanding the Cold War: A Historian's Personal Reflections

This is the story of a man and an epoch. Its telling moves between detailed personal history and an assessment of the origins, significant events, and outcome of the Cold War. Professor Ulam describes his hometown, family, and early education, as well as his departure, with his brother, for the US just days before the Nazi invasion of Poland would have trapped them. Then follows reminiscences of his college and Harvard years, and thoughts as an acknowledged expert on Soviet affairs. The volume offers basic anecdotes to simplistic explanations. Whether discussing the Kirov assination or the Moscow Trials of the so-called Trotsyist Bloc, or the nationalist basis of disputes between China and Russia during the Vietnam War period, Ulam aims to avoid the sensational and the speculative in favour of the empirical and the evidentiary.

Descrizione libro Transaction Publishers. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Paperback. 410 pages. Dimensions: 8.7in. x 6.4in. x 0.9in.Understanding the Cold War is the story of a man and an epoch. Its telling moves between detailed personal history and an Olympian assessment of the origins, significant events, and outcome of the Cold War. Professor Ulam describes his hometown, family, and early education, as well as his departure, with his brother, for the U. S. just days before the Nazi invasion of Poland would have trapped them. Then follows reminiscences of his college and Harvard years, all rich with anecdote and insight, and his thoughts as an acknowledged expert on Soviet affairs. The volume offers basic antidotes to simplistic explanations. Whether discussing the Kirov assassination or the Moscow Trials of the so-called Trotskyist Bloc, or the nationalist basis of disputes between China and Russia during the Vietnam War period, Ulam avoids the sensational and the speculative in favor of the the empirical and the evidentiary. The core segments of the work review the Cold War from the belly of the Stalinist and later post-Stalinist communist system. And in a section entitled The Beginning of the End, Ulam discusses the Gorbachev interregnum and the early years of the transition from communism to democracy. He well appreciates how the ease of the transition does not betoken a simple movement to the democratic camp. In contemplating the changing nature of the new political configuration, one could hardly have a better guide to clarity and authenticity than Adam Ulam. Reviewing Understanding the Cold War, Stephen Kotkin, director of Princetons Russian Studies Program, observed . . . And whereas some celebrated analysts, such as John Maynard Keynes, had dismissed Marxism as illogical and dull, Ulam highlighted the doctrines intricacy and comprehensiveness, which, he argued, explained its attraction not just to peasants, but also to intellectuals. There is really only one legitimate measure of an autobiography, and that is its ability to bring the author to life for the reader, giving a sense of who the person was and what it must have been like to have known him or her. On that score, Adam Ulams Understand the Cold War succeed on every level. To spend time with this book is to spend time with Adam himself. . . . Adam Ulams autobiography stands on its own, giving a clear picture of both the man and his career and displaying his analytical prowess and pe4rsonal charm in abundance. -Thomas P. M. Barnett, Project Muse Adam B. Ulam (1922-2000) taught at Harvard University from 1947 until his retirement in 1992. He was Gurney Professor of History and Political Science, and twice director of the Russian Research Center.

Paul Hollander is professor emeritus of sociology at the University of Massachusettes, Amherst, and a fellow of the David Center for Russian Studies at Harvard University. His books include Soviet and American Society, Political Pilgrims, The Survival of the Adversary Culture, and Anti-Americanism. This item ships from multiple locations.
