The Cold War Studies Book Series

The Cold War Studies Book Series was established in 2001 with the academic publisher Rowman & Littlefield. As of mid-2019, thirty-six volumes have been published. The series, sponsored by Cold War Studies at Harvard University, seeks to expand and enrich what is known about Cold War events and themes. It also encourages scholars to use their research on Cold War topics to illuminate current theoretical debates about international and domestic politics. 

To this end, the series emphasizes the use of archival evidence to test and reexamine theoretical concepts that were derived from events during the Cold War. The series consists of original monographs and edited collections selected, after a two-stage review process, for their cogency, innovativeness, and clarity of exposition. The choice of books is made in consultation with an Editorial Board of 42 distinguished scholars.

The following editions of the Cold War Studies Book Series from Rowman & Littlefield are now avilable in bookstores:
