The two different ideologies between, Capitalism and Communism, were main causes of the Cold War. The USSR (Soviets) supported Communism. A communist economy is controlled by the government. The wealth and resources are controlled by the state or government and are distributed so that everyone benefits.

A capitalist economy is based on private. The Cold War’s end with the apparent victory of the United States and liberal capitalism gave the orthodox view a boost, in works like John Lewis Gaddis’s history, The Cold War. Odd Arne Westad is the author of an outstanding book, The Global Cold War, on the Cold War, as well as other work on this important topic.

This book is a very ambitious attempt to produce a one volume overview of the Cold War and contains a good deal of fine narrative and analysis but suffers from some structural by:   4 Great Books on the Cold War. On the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, The Daily Beast sorts through the best new and old books on the Cold War and the fall of communism.

The New Cold War by Edward Lucas pp, Bloomsbury, £ This book reads like a throwback to an era we hoped had passed into history.

Painted. The Cold War was a period of geopolitical tension between the Soviet Union and the United States and their respective allies, the Eastern Bloc and the Western Bloc, after World War period is generally considered to span the Truman Doctrine to the dissolution of the Soviet term "cold" is used because there was no large-scale fighting directly between the two.

This book is a sweeping summary of what the author believes to be the principal events of the over forty year long confrontation between Communism and Capitalism called the Cold War. Gaddis is in every sense of the word an expert on the Cold War phenomenon and has used his expertise to write a concise, readable, and accurate summary of it.5/5(5).

The Cold War was an ongoing political rivalry between the United States and the Soviet Union and their respective allies that developed after World War hostility between the two superpowers was first given its name by George Orwell in an article published in Orwell understood it as a nuclear stalemate between “super-states”: each possessed weapons of mass destruction and was.

The Cold War was unique in that it was a truly global conflict, even more so than WW2 and definitely WW1. It touched upon and radically transformed European nation-states, turning them from Imperial/colonial superpowers into welfare-states, aspiring for greater unity and transformation/5(). As Branko Milanović notes in his new book, capitalism convincingly triumphed over socialism at the end of the Cold War.

That does not mean that struggles between the emerging variants of capitalism—liberal-meritocratic and political—will be any less fierce.

The Tsar believed that Russia's participation in the War would help to establish it as a great nation. The Cold War: A Battle Between Capitalism and Communism The Cold War began not very long after the end of World War II in Despite the fact that, the Soviet Union was an essential part of the Allied Powers, there was certainly a great amount of distrust between the Soviet Union and what remains of the Allies, specifically the United States.

Andrew Bacevich’s latest book poses penetrating questions that transcend its title: “The Age of Illusions: How America Squandered Its Cold War Victory” (Metropolitan Books, pp. The Cold War rivalry between the United States and the Soviet Union lasted for decades and resulted in anti-communist suspicions and international incidents that.

This book provides a theoretically informed historical survey of the Cold War and the nature and consequences of its end. It seeks to offer a distinct contribution to the theorisation of the Cold War as a form of international (social) conflict, as well as providing a comprehensive examination of the principal historical developments within the Cold War.

Westad (Restless Empire), professor of U.S.-Asia relations at Harvard, reassesses conventional frameworks of the Cold War and identifies its origins in the late 19th century with “the expansion of the United States and Russia as transcontinental empires” and “the sharpening of the ideological divide between capitalism and its critics.”Brand: Basic Books.

The Cold War and Inter-Systemic Conflict. The second strand of Marxist-informed theories of the Cold War locates the dynamic of Cold War conflict less in the internal contradictions within each bloc and more in the international antagonism and conflict between the two social systems – hence the Cold War is seen as inter-systemic : Richard Saull.

The Cold War lasted for almost a half-century, from the mids through the early s. The conflict’s origins were deep and complex, but the root cause of this persistent hostility between the United States and the Soviet Union was ideology.
