”It invites oblique perspectives and counterintuitive approaches as the in-depth study of the Cold War reveals more diversity and subversion than meets the eye, thus standing well beyond superficial and distinctively polarized preconceptions. If you accept this immersive invitation, you will discover figures and groups that defied any apparent form of status quo to dare to design alternative scenarios beyond confrontation, submission and conformity. That is, indeed, an evergreen perspective we will never stop learning from. That is also an insight we can bring into any field: Maps are not just to be followed but to be created and reformulated. The present is forever open to the inspiration of creative dissent. So, remember: Scratch the surface, ditch all fear and dare to imagine!”
