Chapter Summary

This section contains a list of names, terms and concepts that occur in the book The Cold War in Asia: The battle for hearts and minds. Study of the Cold War in Asia is helpful because it allows us to better understand the history of the region itself. It is also crucial to a global comparative history of the Cold War, one that situates the Cold War in relation to other global processes and explores similarities and differences across countries and regions. The Soviet ideology was seen as intrinsically expansionist; the authoritarian system meant there were no checks and balances on expansionism, and Stalin himself was as ruthless, immoral and self-aggrandizing as the regime he led. Perhaps unsurprisingly, by the 1960s this orthodoxy had begun to be challenged.

Keywords: Asia; Cold War; Soviet ideology
