Event Description

What was the Cold War that shook world politics in the second half of the twentieth century? Standard narratives focus on the Soviet–American rivalry as if the superpowers were the exclusive driving forces of the international system. Yet, regional and national developments shaped the course of the global Cold War to a much greater degree.Despite their elevated position in 1945, the United States, Soviet Union, and United Kingdom quickly realized that their political, economic, and military power had surprisingly tight limits given the challenges of decolonization, Asian–African Internationalism, pan-Arabism, pan-Islamism, Arab–Israeliantagonism, and European economic developments.BioLorenz M. Lüthi is Associate Professor at McGill University and a historian of the Cold War. His first book, The Sino-Soviet Split: Cold War in the Communist World, won the 2008 Furniss Award and the 2010 Marshall Shulman Book Prize. His second book, Cold Wars: Asia, the Middle East, Europe was published in the spring of 2020.
