Main Article: Cold War () In the course of the s and s, Cold War participants struggled to adjust to a new, more complicated pattern of international relations in which the world was no longer divided into two clearly opposed blocs.

        In this political history, McGeorge Bundy has presented us with a detailed account of the first 50 years of man-made nuclear fission. His study is not merely a history of the era, but an analysis. As Gorbachev said in these pages, “[T]he U.S.-Soviet summit in Reykjavik, seen by many as a failure, actually gave an impetus to reduction by reaffirming the vision of a world without nuclear weapons and by paving the way toward concrete agreements on intermediate-range nuclear forces and strategic nuclear weapons.”.
