this is a very difficult book to describe. part of the reason is that so much of the essays included are made up by sociological technica and gobble-de-goop. this is the most confusing book that I have read since I had to read "The Republic" by Plato.

Though some of the essays are thoughtful, others seem to be bent on trying to confuse the reader by circular reasoning and other 'smoke and mirrors'. So maybe I'm too thick to understand their points, but this to me was a painful reading.

Excellent review for anyone teaching the Cold War, this is a set of carefully curated essays spanning fiction contemporary to the Cold War (Bridges of Toko-ri, The Man in the Grey Flannel Suit, Raisin in the Sun, Manchurian Candidate, the Forever War) to post-Cold War reflections by Toni Morrison and attempts to grapple with the unipolar moment like Blackhawk Down.
