MEDIA REVIEWS
Based on an unprecedented richness of primary sources from Austrian and Russian archives, this volume presents important contributions to the interpretation of Soviet policy towards Vienna during and after World War II. The contributors aptly analyze the multifaceted interconnections between economic and broader strategic conceptions in Soviet decision-making. They demonstrate the Cold war's all-encompassing scope and its-sometimes contradictory-influence on all aspects of social and individual life. The findings provide a challenging example of multi-perspective research on international history that can inspire future research on the multifaceted dimensions of the early Cold War and beyond. -- Andreas Hilger, German Historical Institute Moscow
