    So for A2 History, I'll be studying the Cold War and Terrorism.

    I've never really delved into either territory so I'd be grateful if anyone has books/textbooks that are about the Cold War that I could read before term starts..?

    If anyone recommends anything on Terrorism that would be much appreciated too, but I understand if there isn't any as it's a new syllabus.

    Thanks!

    Take some geopolitic textbook.
    Try to find some old Soviet books where they discuss the Cold War reasons.

    "The spy who came in from the cold" - thats about the cold war, obviously you could read about specific moments in the cold war like the Berlin Wall

    The film "Goodbye Lenin" is also very good

    Enjoy

    I would recommend 'The Cold War' by Martin Walker. You could also read 'The Cold War: A New History' by John Lewis Gaddis, which is very accessible. Both books are very readable and enjoyable.
