Containing Coexistence is the first full-scale study of Finland's role in Soviet-American relations during the onset of the cold war. Hanhimaki draws on a wide range of multinational source material, including newly released archival materials, in a comparative approach that interrelates American, British, Finnish, Russian, and Swedish perspectives. Containing Coexistence will be of interest to historians and political scientists as well as to any scholar interested in American and Soviet foreign policies during the cold war, post-World War II international relations, or twentieth-century European history.
