CEU Press's The Last Superpower Summits Named Outstanding Academic Title for 2017

January 30, 2018

CEU Press's 2016 publication, "The Last Superpower Summits. Gorbachev, Reagan, and Bush. Conversations that Ended the Cold War," has been selected by Choice as an Outstanding Academic Title for 2017.

According to the Choice review, "the anthology offers a fascinating glimpse into the relationship that defined the waning years of the Cold War—from a hawkish Ronald Reagan softening his tone in his second presidential term to Mikhail Gorbachev's dissolution of the Soviet Union. The volume is thoughtfully laid out, starting with an introduction about the collection, a timeline of key dates, and a list of "main actors," which enables readers to keep straight the many names mentioned in the work. Each of the ten summits is covered in a chapter, preceded by a historical essay that provides useful commentary and places transcripts in context. Overall, this is an excellent work issued collaboratively in the "National Security Archive Cold War Readers" series. Summing up: Highly recommended."
