New Book Review by Roger Kanet on EEGA’s Third Edited Volume

There is a new book review on EEGA’s third edited volume „Eastern Europe, the Soviet Union, and Africa: New Perspectives on the Era of Decolonization, 1950s to 1990s“ edited by Chris Saunders, Helder Adegar Fonseca and Lena Dallywater (Berlin: De Gruyter Oldenbourg, 2023):

The  book review by Roger Kanet (deceased) was published in the Journal of Cold War Studies (The MIT Press, Volume 26, Number 1, Winter 2024, pp. 270-271). The author concludes: “ One noteworthy feature of the book as a whole is that the editors and contributors to the book are exclusively from Europe (including Russia) and Africa. In the past, most of the scholars who discussed the topics covered here were from North America. This, perhaps, explains why the editors declare at the outset that one of the purposes of the book is to reassess the issues discussed by scholars during the Cold War. The book is a welcome effort to reexamine and add to the earlier literature.“
