As of mid-2018, thirty-four volumes have been published in the Cold War Studies Book Series. For full information about the project and about the individual books, please see the Cold War Studies Book Series page.
In addition to the Harvard Cold War Studies Book Series, the HPCWS was specially commissioned by Harvard University Press to produce an English edition of the celebrated French book Le Livre Noir du Communisme. When this 850-page book was published in France in late 1997, it caused a great stir. Harvard University Press purchased the English-language rights to the book and requested Mark Kramer to prepare an unabridged English version. Kramer served as both American editor and translator of the book. The translation was completed at the end of 1998, and the book was published by Harvard University Press in September 1999.
