Texas A&M University Press has published The Berlin Airlift and the Making of the Cold War (available for sale online). The volume comes out of a conference that the Albritton Center for Grand Strategy (CGS) co-hosted in the spring of 2019. The volume is edited by John Schuessler, Co-Director of the CGS at the Bush School, Adam Seipp, Associate Dean for Graduate Studies, College of Arts and Sciences at Texas A&M, and the late Thomas Sullivan of Texas A&M Libraries.
The Berlin Airlift and the Making of the Cold War brings together historians and political scientists to explore the origins, course, and impacts of the Berlin Airlift after seventy years. Here, scholars and authorities on the Airlift, its logistics, the great power competition involved, and the position of Berlin within a divided and occupied Central Europe discuss not only the Airlift itself but also the critical role the operation played in shaping the physical and mental landscape of Cold War confrontation in Europe.
