    Mark Kramer, Editor. The Journal of Cold War Studies features peer-reviewed articles based on archival research in the former Communist world, in Western countries, and in other parts of the globe. Articles in the journal draw on declassified materials and new memoirs to illuminate and raise questions about numerous historical and theoretical concerns: theories of decision-making, deterrence. When attempting to assess today’s inter-Korean summit, the adage ‘Hope for the best, prepare for the worst’ seems more appropriate than ever., Worst-case scenarios for the Koreas spring readily to mind. Given recent events – multiple North Korean missile tests in the past year, the nuclear test on 3 September , North Korean President Kim Jong-un’s long-distance rhetorical clashes.

    The end of the Cold War has released a flood of new archival materials and memoirs both in the former Communist world and in Western countries. Declassified documentation and first-hand accounts have enabled scholars to gain a much better understanding of some of the key events of the past century. Start studying Cold War Comes Home.
