Rethinking the Cold War with Kennedy School scholar ODD ARNE WESTAD

Harvard Book Store welcomes Harvard Kennedy School’s ODD ARNE WESTAD for a discussion of his latest book, The Cold War: A World History.

We tend to think of the Cold War as a bounded conflict: a clash between two superpowers, the United States and the Soviet Union, born out of the ashes of World War II and coming to a dramatic end with the collapse of the Soviet Union. But in this major new work, Bancroft Prize-winning scholar ODD ARNE WESTAD argues that the Cold War must be understood as a global ideological confrontation, with early roots in the Industrial Revolution and ongoing repercussions around the world.

This event is not ticketed.

The book will be on sale at the event for 20% off.
