Bibliography on the Cold War

• http://www.lewrockwell.com, By David Gordon
 As Rothbard often stressed, one cannot infer a nation's foreign policy from the nature of its domestic regime. Communist totalitarianism did not necessitate an aggressive foreign policy; and in the post-World War II period, Rothbard contended, Russian foreign was largely defensive in character. The main Communist danger to America was internal rather than external.

Alperovitz, Gar. The Decision to the Use the Atomic Bomb. Argues that the decision to use atomic weapons against Japan was intended as an anti-Russian move.

Blackett, P. M. S. Fear, War, and the Bomb. Contends that America sought to use nuclear policy to secure dominance over Russia.

Chomsky, Noam. American Power and the New Mandarins. Criticizes American intellectuals for their role in promoting a Cold War ideology.

Chomsky, Noam. At War With Asia. Emphasizes the destructive effects of American policy in this region.
