East, West, North, South : Major Developments in International Politics, 1945-86
Although traditional interpretations of the Cold War--based on a narrow, bilateral paradigm--have considered only Russian and American viewpoints, a whole new generation of European scholars has recently emerged, arguing for the necessity of a third-party perpective. In East, West, North, South, Norwegian scholar Geir Lundestad not only presents a thorough, well-balanced, and insightful account of Soviet-American antagonism; he also examines the divisions between the 'developed' and 'non-developed' worlds. Used as a basic textbook in all four of Norway's universities, this is an excellent introduction to late 20th-century international relations and includes a perceptive critical review of contemporary issues such as deterrence, economic development, and arms control.
