CHOICE Review

Folly (Brunel Univ., London), author of similar historical dictionaries dealing with US diplomacy during WW I and WW II (CH, Nov'10, 48-1232), has compiled this latest volume in the publisher's "Historical Dictionaries of Diplomacy and Foreign Relations" series. This single volume contains over 900 entries related to Cold War diplomacy from 1945-1991. Readers will find a detailed chronology of the key events, a historical essay, and four appendixes presenting information on key political and intelligence figures from the period. The entries in are alphabetical order with cross-references to related entries. A bibliographic essay introduces the extensive bibliography organized topically, which allows readers to find relevant materials with ease. This work will benefit students and researchers who need concise information about events, places, individuals, and other subjects related to the Cold War and US diplomatic activities during the period. Unfortunately, the volume lacks maps or photographs, which would serve readers trying to place the terms into the context of the times. This reference work is recommended for public or academic libraries that maintain collections on political, diplomatic, and international issues. Summing Up: Recommended. Undergraduates through faculty; general readers. --Theresa S. Hefner-Babb, Lamar University--Beaumont
