"The Cold War and the Color Line" offers a comprehensive examination of how the Cold War intersected with the final destruction of global white supremacy. Thomas Borstelmann pays close attention to the two Souths - Southern Africa and the American South - as the primary sites of white authority's last stand. He reveals America's efforts to contain the racial polarization that threatened to unravel the anti-communist Western alliance. In so doing, he recasts the history of American race relations in its true international context, one that is relevant for the era of globalization.
