Cold War History journal

Cold War History Journal


The Cold War Studies Project at LSE IDEAS houses the journal Cold War History, co-edited with other centres of excellence in Europe and published by Routledge, part of the Taylor & Francis Group, four times a year.

About the journal

As the Cold War ended in the early 1990s, scholars of contemporary international affairs started taking a new look at the basic conflicts that had dominated the latter part of the twentieth century. Over the last 25 years, a new historical literature on the Cold War era has come into being, greatly helped by the increase in access to archives and other source materials across the world.

Cold War History aims to make available to the general public the results of this recent research on the origins and development of the Cold War and its impact on nations, alliances and regions at various levels of statecraft, as well as in areas such as the military and intelligence, the economy, and social and intellectual developments.

The new history of the Cold War is a fascinating example of how experts - often working across national and disciplinary boundaries - are able to use newly available information to refine, or in some cases destroy, old images and interpretations. 

Cold War History aims at publishing the best of this emerging scholarship, from a perspective that attempts to de-centre the era through paying special attention to the role of Europe and the Third World.

Special subject collections - free to read

Cold War History takes pride in the excellent research presented in the journal to illuminate new aspects of the history of the Cold War. These special subject collections are being brought out to highlight this work and make it available to new audiences.

The articles have been published over the life of the journal, and have been selected to emphasise the different approaches presented in the journal. They are now freely available and in electronic form.
