The Harvard Cold War Studies Book Series
The collapse of the Soviet Union has led to immense opportunities for primary research on all aspects of the Cold War as Eastern-bloc archives have begun to open. The vast amount of newly released documentation and first-hand accounts has enabled scholars to gain a much better understanding of events that once seemed impenetrable. The Harvard Cold War Project was established to take advantage of these opportunities by promoting archival research in former Eastern-bloc countries. The Project seeks to expand and enrich what is known about Cold War events and themes, and encourages scholars to use their research on Cold War topics to illuminate current theoretical debates about international and domestic politics. This series, comprising original monographs by scholars working in conjunction with the Harvard Cold War Project, emphasizes the use of new archival evidence to test and reexamine theoretical concepts.
