Readings in American History: The Cold War at Home and Abroad
This course will examine America's Cold War experience from both international and domestic perspectives. In addition to official U.S. foreign policy, readings will consider topics such as: federal state formation, immigration, the struggle for civil rights, shifting definitions of liberalism and conservatism, the military-industrial complex, and anti-communist campaigns waged by private citizens. Rather than divorcing the global and national dimensions of the American Cold War, we will explore their points of convergence and use them to complicate our understandings of the "postwar" era.
