On the origins and course of the Cold War consult W. I. Cohen, America in the Age of Soviet Power, 1945–1991 (1993); and J. Gaddis, The United States and the Origins of the Cold War (1972), The Long Peace (1987), Russia, the Soviet Union, and the United States (2d ed., 1990), and We Now Know: Rethinking Cold War History (1997). For a more critical view, see T. J. McCormick, America’s Half Century: United States Foreign Policy in the Cold War (1992). Other explanations include J. Gormly, The Collapse of the Grand Alliance, 1945–1948 (1987); F. Harbutt, The Iron Curtain: Churchill, America and the Origins of the Cold War (1986); M. Hogan, The Marshall Plan (1987); W. LaFeber, America, Russia, and the Cold War (6th ed., 1991); V. Mastny, Russia’s Road to the Cold War (1979); R. Pollard, Economic Security and the Origins of the Cold War (1985); H. Thomas, Armed Truce: The Beginnings of the Cold War (1987); and L. Wittner, American Intervention in Greece, 1943–1949 (1982). Of particular interest are M. Leffler’s prizewinning A Preponderance of Power (1992); R. Maddox’s controversial From War to Cold War: The Education of Harry S. Truman (1988); T. Paterson’s revisionist Meeting the Communist Threat: Truman to Reagan (1988), and On Every Front: The Making and Unmaking of the Cold War (1992). For a variety of interpretations of the Korean War see W. Stueck, The Korean War: An International History (1995); R. Appleman, Disaster in Korea (1992); R. Foot, A Substitute for Victory (1990); J. Halliday and B. Cumings, Korea: The Unknown War (1989); and C. A. MacDonald, Korea (1987). Also see S. G. Zhang, Deterrence and Strategic Culture: Chinese–American Confrontations, 1949–1958 (1993). For the thinking of key American cold warriors, see W. Isaacson and E. Thomas, The Wise Men (1986); R. Messer, The End of an Alliance (1982); W. D. Miscamble, George F.
