Product Overview

In The Cuban Missile Crisis: A Concise History, Don Munton and David A. Welch distill the best current scholarship on the Cuban missile crisis into a brief narrative history. The authors draw on newly available documents to provide a comprehensive treatment of its causes, events, consequences,
and significance. Stressing the importance of context in relation to the genesis, conduct, and resolution of the crisis, Munton and Welch examine it from the U.S., Soviet, and Cuban angles, revealing the vital role differences in national perspectives played at every stage. While the book provides
a concise, up-to-date look at this pivotal event, it also notes gaps and mysteries in the historical record and highlights important persistent interpretive disputes. The authors provide a detailed guide to the literature and film for those who wish to explore further. The Cuban Missile Crisis is
ideal for undergraduate courses on the 1960s, U.S. foreign policy, the Cold War, twentieth-century world history, and comparative foreign policy.
