The Berlin Crisis of 1961

Soviet-American Relations and the Struggle for Power in the Kremlin, June-November, 1961

Originally published in 1973. This book uses the Berlin Crisis of 1961 as a starting point to investigate Soviet-American relations in the Kruschev period. The book first chronicles the timeline of the succession of events during the Berlin Crisis and their interrelation. It then turns to the close interaction between Soviet and foreign policy before situating the event into the broader timeline of Soviet history.

Reviews

"Demonstrates with admirable cogency that a well-founded interpretation [of the Kennedy-Khrushchev era] is possible . . . Lay[s] bare the workings of the Russian political process in the age of collective leadership."—Times Literary Supplement
