When Strategies of Containment was first published, the Soviet Union was still a superpower, Ronald Reagan was still President of the United States, and the Berlin Wall was still standing. Now this new edition of Gaddis's classic carries the history of containment through the end of the Cold War and beyond. Revised and updated throughout, it includes a comprehensive assessment of how Reagan and Gorbachev completed the process of containment and brought the Cold War to an end. And in a new epilogue, Gaddis evaluates the relevance of containment for the future of American grand strategy. Book jacket.
