The Cold War: A Battle of Global Ideologies
The Cold War: A Battle of Global Ideologies provides students with an objective look at opposing ideals that caused increasing tensions between major global players in the wake of World War II, and how those tensions ultimately led to the Cold War. This book illustrates the key events that led to the Cold War, as well as the outcome and the global repercussions of the conflict.
The text focuses on the ideological battle that developed between the United States and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics as these nations rose to power after the resolution of the Second World War. It helps students understand how the diametrically opposed ideologies of capitalism and Communism led to a global battle of ideals. Each chapter includes a focus question, historical text, discussion questions, and a comparative essay to help the student make relevant, historical connections and formulate a logical interpretation of the events.
Providing a deep understanding of what led to the conflict, The Cold War is an excellent resource for world history courses.
