Between 1945 and 1968, the possibility of Mutual Assured Destruction led to a host of odd realities, including the creation of an affable cartoon turtle named Bert who taught millions of school children that nuclear war was survivable if they simply learned how to "duck and cover." Meanwhile, fear of Communism played out against the backdrop of potential Armageddon to provide justification for a variety of covert operations involving regime change, political assassination, and sometimes bizarre plot twists. United States Foreign Policy 1945-1968: The Bomb, Spies, Stories, and Lies takes a fresh look at this complex, often confusing, and frequently farcical period in American and world history.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"United States Foreign Policy 1945-1968 is a lucid, comprehensive account of this critical period in the history of the world. Michael Wayne Santos takes an even-handed approach to the volatile issues that unfolded during the Cold War, with an extensive bibliography that reflects the wide-ranging primary and secondary sources on which the author relies."--William R. Keylor, Boston University
"The Cold War was as much a set of stories as it was a 'scientific outcome' of structures and great power politics. Historian Michael Wayne Santos has written a beautifully textured analysis of the most important stories that shaped international relations in the second half of the twentieth century. This is a book brimming with fresh insight about how people, decisions, beliefs, and convictions about the nature of experience came together in a mix that continues to frame the stories we tell about world politics today."--Steven Weber, University of California at Berkeley
