Contribute your publications to the "Bibliography of New Cold War History"

It attempts to collect the publications on the history of the Cold War published after 1989, the beginning of the “archival revolution” in the former Soviet bloc countries. While this first edition is far from complete, it collects a huge number of books, articles and book chapters on the topic.
