New research is shedding additional historical light on the Cold War's iconic nuclear standoff between the U.S. and U.S.S.R., with the tiny nation of Cuba in the middle. For the next two weeks, CONTEXT will look back on what we're learning with an eye toward the lessons that apply today. In part 3 of our "On The Brink" series, Svetlana Savranskaya describes the underrated role of Russia's Anastas Mikoyan in events that ultimately avoided nuclear catastrophe.

Part 2 - With Philip Brenner
Part 4 - Coming Wednesday, October 24
