When I was growing up in the s and s, I took the Cold War for granted. Whenever we listened to the early evening news, the headlines were full of Cruise missiles, peace protesters, Afghan rebels and superpower summits. When I went to school, one of my teachers lectured us about the evils of nuclear weapons and the inevitability of Armageddon. I saw James Bond battling sinister Bulgarian henchmen and canoodling with glamorous, fur-coated Russian beauties. The Cold War was always there, part of the wallpaper, the soundtrack, the fabric of everyday life.
