Default cold war in the pacific

Hey guys,

there are a lot of books and resources on the net of the cold war. But the vast majority deals with (obviously) the European Theater. Apart from the Korean/Vietnam stuff I hardly read anything about the cold war time frame in the pacific.

Does anybody know good books/urls about it?

Blind Man's Bluff deals a lot with the Pacific.

yup, that's a great book...unfortunately I have already that one...it's one of my favorite books and will surely read it partly again.

I would be especially interested in espionage, electronic intelligence gathering...how was Japan involved and such things.

While not Pacific centric a valuable source is Cold War at Sea by David Winkler. (Naval Institute Press 2000)

Although somewhat pedantic and generally pretty dry from a reading standpoint it covers many of the high-seas confrontations during the Cold War that resulted in the US-Soviet Incidents at Sea Agreement. Although largely ignored by the public, this military protocol served to prevent escalation where US and USSR forces came into close and on occasion unintentionally violent contact.
