With the end of the Cold War in 1990/1 and also with the opening of the archives in Western and Eastern Europe, in Moscow and Beijing, studies on the Cold War have now achieved an academic status in their own right. Cold War History aims to make available to scholars and students the results of recent research on the origins and development of the Cold War and its impact on nations, alliances and regions at various levels of statecraft, and in areas such as diplomacy, security, economy, intelligence and the military, and society. From a professional point of view, the Cold War offers an attractive range of research possibilities, since the means of fighting the Cold War included East-West negotiations, summit diplomacy, trade and cultural contacts, propaganda, covert operations and economic assistance. Indeed many of these ways of attempting to resolve conflicts and enforce peace are still valid in the post-Cold War era and will remain so in the twenty-first century. The Cold War can thus be seen as a bridge between the era of traditional and Euro-centric great power politics and contemporary international relations. Cold War History serves both as a serious academic forum for deepening an understanding of the recent past and as a means of investigating methods of achieving peace in the international community.
