9780809015740: The Specter of Communism: The United States and the Origins of the Cold War, 1917-1953 (Hill and Wang Critical Issues)

The Hill and Wang Critical Issues Series: concise, affordable works on pivotal topics in American history, society, and politics.

The Specter of Communism is a concise history of the origins of the Cold War and the evolution of U.S.-Soviet relations, from the Bolshevik revolution to the death of Stalin. Using not only American documents but also those from newly opened archives in Russia, China, and Eastern Europe, Leffler shows how the ideological animosity that existed from Lenin's seizure of power onward turned into dangerous confrontation. By focusing on American political culture and American anxieties about the Soviet political and economic threat, Leffler suggests new ways of understanding the global struggle staged by the two great powers of the postwar era.

Descrizione libro Hill Wang, United States, 1994. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book. Melvyn Leffler s succinct and important new analysis of the origins of the Cold War begins with the outbreak of the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917: ideological animosity between the Soviet Union and the United States existed from the moment Lenin seized power. Leffler traces the importance of the intricate connection between America s economic development and the growth of the U.S.S.R. as the world s other great power; in focusing on how America perceived the Soviet threat to its free capitalist economy and political culture, he suggests new ways to understand the dangerous postwar confrontation we call the Cold War. Stalin s brutality, cynicism, and ideological antipathy to the West did not easily translate into a consistent revolutionary foreign policy - he oscillated between cautious defensiveness and pragmatic opportunism - and his unpredictable efforts to safeguard Soviet security and Bolshevik rule accentuated American anxieties. But U.S. policy, too, had its inconsistencies, and Leffler s insightful analysis (based on newly available Soviet records as well as American archives) gives a superb account of the interaction between the two.
