Stalin's Cold War presents a highly original analysis of the origins of the Cold War, drawing on a wide range of new primary evidence from Soviet and Bulgarian archives. It offers fresh and illuminating insights into the evolution of Stalin's strategy in the transition from cooperation with the United States and Britain during the Second World War to ideological and geopolitical confrontation, and into his impact on Communist party policy in the complex interaction between democracy and communism in the national political systems of European countries in the aftermath of the Second World War.
