HIST 118: Introduction to History: The Cold War

The Cold War was a political contest between the USA and the USSR that took on increasingly apocalyptic dimensions as the nuclear age developed. But, the war also extended well beyond the political. It framed discussions about cultures and economies, history and the future, and the nature of civilization. This course allows students to explore various aspects of this conflict through the study of primary sources from around the world and through their own writing. [SS, W] [W] Prof. Sanborn
