    Foreign Intervention in Africa after the Cold War: Sovereignty, Responsibility, and the War on Terror is a follow-up and expansion to an earlier and highly rega.   We owe it to them. Let’s take a look at some of the best historical books that detail the Cold War from the Latin American perspective. The Last Colonial Massacre: Latin America in the Cold War by Greg Grandin. Grandin uses Guatemala as his case study in this book. Guatemala experienced a 36 year civil war that began in and did not end.

    At the end of the Cold War, the prevailing view in Washington was that the U.S. was strong, and Russia was weak and did not count in a unipolar world. We disregarded Russia's opposition to NATO expansion, the Iraq War, and the U.S.-led military intervention in Serbia for the independence of Kosovo.   So in this sense the cold war lived on in the minds of many people through the 's, and 70's, even after most of the justification for it had faded.

    The Soviet Threat. The Early Cold War. The Continuing Cold War. Moscow's Troubling Absence --Ch. 3. Stopping The Spread of Weapons of Mass Destruction. Grooming the 'Policeman of the Gulf'. Arms Are For Hugging. Better Dying Through Chemistry. Bee Shit and Bull Shit. Iraq and Chemical Warfare. Nuclear Arms. The Israeli Bomb. No Nukes and No Gas. In Foreign Intervention in Africa after the Cold War--interdisciplinary in approach and intended for nonspecialists--Elizabeth Schmidt provides a new framework for thinking about foreign political and military intervention in Africa, its purposes, and its consequences.
