HIST415 - The Cold War

 

The Cold War developed between capitalist and communist nations—primarily between the United States and Russia—shortly after World War II and lasted until the early 1990s. Although the conflict is technically considered over, its impact is still felt in society, politics and economics even today. The Cold War often threatened to transform into a hot war, and actually did so periodically, such as in the Korean and Vietnam Wars. This course focuses on the development of the ideological conflict and its effects on politics, economics, technology, society and culture in both the East and the West. Prerequisite - HIST300/HS334 for History and Military History majors only
