Content covers nine regions with information on a huge range of topics and events.
The advanced search functionality has been built to facilitate both teaching and research, making this an ideal resource for those studying and researching a broad range of subjects, including politics, international relations, history and cultural studies.
"Cold War Eastern Europe is a truly indispensable resource for students and academics alike studying the history of Eastern Europe, Communism and the Cold War. Due to the high quality of British diplomatic reporting, the collection will immensely enhance comparative research of the Soviet Bloc countries' history"
