In an unstable world, how do you know who your friends and enemies are?

A leading history site has released a free book for a limited time telling the story of the middle years of the Cold War, an unstable time for the world.

Book available from: Amazon

London, UK – July 27, 2013. It’s History press has released a free book telling us about events in the Cold War, the great battle between the USA and USSR, from 1962 to 1979. The introductory book looks at the events that followed on from the most dangerous event of the Cold War, the Cuban Missile Crisis. The strange thing is though, that the world became more and less stable in the years after that Crisis. While in some ways the USA and USSR enjoyed better relations, they also competed with each other in more and more areas of the world.

The book is free on Amazon from July 27 to July 31; however, if you have missed the free period, the book will retail at a great, low price. The book also complements the free audio podcasts available on the publisher’s website.

The book’s author, George Levrier-Jones, said: “Our latest undertaking is the follow-up to our book on the early years of the Cold War. This book builds on that book, but the nature of the Cold War means that it is very different. The Cold War changed a lot in the 1960s and 1970s – while there was no event like the Cuban Missile Crisis, it became much more complex. For me, these years are even more fascinating than the early Cold War years. The twists and turns made writing the book very enjoyable, but I’ll warn you that the biggest twist doesn’t happen until the end of the book.”

Events covered in the book include the Vietnam War, decolonization, early nuclear arms control, the SALT treaties, the Sino-Soviet split, Nixon’s visit to China, Soviet involvement in Africa, the Prague Spring, Charles de Gaulle’s France, and perhaps most importantly for the world, détente. Détente changed the Cold War landscape significantly and is the thread running through the book.

The author is a budding historian from the UK. He studied history as part of his degree and has read far and wide about different historical topics. With a group of historian friends, he started the podcast series ‘History in 28-minutes’ in 2012. The same team has since created a publishing house, and they now produce the ‘Required History’ book series.
