This forum presents three different perspectives on the eighth volume in the Harvard Cold War Studies Book Series, The Cold War after Stalin's Death: A Missed Opportunity for Peace? edited by Klaus Larres and Kenneth Osgood. The fifteen contributors to the book discuss changes and continuities in the international environment during the first few years after the death of Josif Stalin, seeking to focus on whether there was a chance during that period to end the Cold War.

Three distinguished scholars offer their assessments of The Cold War after Stalin's Death and explore some of the major issues raised by the contributors to the volume.
