The Cold War might have ended three decades ago-not through mutual understanding but in World War III. This massively detailed account explores the ways in which John F. Kennedy and Nikita Khrushchev, despite a plenitude of folly and misperception, managed to prevent war and to acquire an appreciation of each other and their common responsibilities. The book is deeply researched and dramatically written.
