Synopsis

The Soviet empire entered its steepest decline and fall in the same years Washington was captivated by the specter of a rising Soviet threat. How did American elites get it so wrong? Dana H. Allin combines masterful Cold War narrative with a fascinating dissection of the fallacies of this surreal pessimism.
