Expanding the Frontiers: Superpower Intervention in the Cold War

Synopsis

This study examines the history of superpower intervention in domestic conflicts around the world during the Cold War era. This unique analysis goes beyond a reexamination of dramatic instances of American and Soviet intervention to a combination of aggregate event data methodology and historical case studies. General patterns in the nature of superpower intervention throughout four decades are highlighted and U.S.-Soviet behavior is carefully and consistently compared across the entire period of the Cold War.
