Reviews

Bruce Kuniholm takes a regional perspective to focus on postwar diplomacy in Iran, Turkey, and Greece and efforts in these countries to maintain their independence from the Great Powers. Drawing on a wide variety of secondary sources, government documents, private papers, unpublished memoirs, and extensive interviews with key figures, he shows how the traditional struggle for power along the Northern Tier was a major factor in the origins and development of the Cold War between the U.S. and the U.S.S.R.

Review:

"This book is one of the most significant in the historiography of the entire Cold War conflict."--Journal of American History

"An important book to read and a valuable addition to the literature on the Cold War."--Political Science Quarterly

"Kuniholm's work should be commended for its careful analysis of British, American, and Soviet intervention into the politics of Iran, Turkey and Greece."--Middle East Journal
