Winter Kept Us Warm is an exercise in New Cold War history, examining the paradox of cooperation and interaction that took place within that conflict. Human encounters on many levels are recorded; footballers in the GDR, American orchestras and exhibitions in the USSR, Icelandic communists and New York publishers, plus cinema and “socialist” consumerism are all examined in chapters that inform and complement each other.
An outcome of the Cold War Interactions Reconsidered conference, which marked the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, this volume is the first in the Aleksanteri Cold War Series. The new series is the outlet of the Aleksanteri Cold War Research Group, http://www.helsinki.fi/aleksanteri/cwrg. This book-series is dedicated to providing an arena for new approaches to and fresh interpretations of the Cold War era, and this book is the first volume published in the series.
