There is a review of Understanding and Teaching the Cold War in the recent edition of Passport, published by the Society for Historians of American Foreign Relations.
We almost lost track of the adjectives: formidable, significant, perceptive, valuable, compelling, important, rich, extensive, provocative.
“Professors and high school teachers committed to student learning will find that Understanding and Teaching the Cold War makes the difficult task of teaching the Cold War a little easier. It is a valuable contribution to the scholarship of teaching that deserves space on the bookshelf of new teachers who are developing initial Cold War courses as well as experienced faculty who are contemplating revisions to their existing courses. Very few readers will come away from this provocative compilation without the motivation to experiment with at least some of the ideas in it. It is highly recommended.”
