About this course:

The Cold War is considered a period of political hostility that existed between the Soviet bloc countries and the US-led Western powers from 1945 to 1990. This course examines the Cold War and its international aftermath, decolonization, revolutionary movements, national development across a variety of cases, and trends in the global economy. By observing and analyzing the Cold War from a chronological approach, we explore whether the United States and Russia have ever calmed Cold War intentions.
