Lost Time: The Forgetting of the Cold WarIssue: Fall 1995
The end of the Cold War was the beginning of its long journey into
history. Countless records in many media insure that its total
disappearance from human consciousness--the fate of the wars of what
we call pre-history, and of some of the darker periods of recorded
history--is inconceivable. People who take the trouble will always be
able to learn about the Cold War, analyze its events, and interpret
it in ever-changing historical perspective.
