Cold War History Research Center Releases Cold War Chronology –Based on Soviet Bloc Sources.
The National Security Archive is pleased to announce the availability of a terrific Cold War resource from one of our partners in Central Europe.
The Cold War History Research Center in Budapest (www.coldwar.hu) recently published “The History of the Soviet Bloc, 1945-1991. A CHRONOLOGY. PART 1, 1945-1950,” edited by Csaba BÉKÉS, Founding Director of the Center.
Csaba is one of our longest-standing partners in the region and a leading historian of the Cold War. He’s also a former ICAS Fellow at New York University and a recurring visiting professor at Columbia University.
What makes this chronology stand out is that it’s based on hard-to-find Soviet bloc sources, a vital corollary to Western perspectives on a wide
variety of topics.
The first segment of what will be a three-part, English language, online timeline is roughly 300 pages in length. When it’s finished it’ll be 3,000 pages long. Part 2 (1951-1955) will be available by September 2012, and Part 3 (1956-1968) by December 2012.
