Description - The Culture of the Cold War by Stephen J. Whitfield
This text examines the impact of the Cold War - and its ending - on American culture and national identity. This edition is updated and extends the analysis from the McCarthyism of the 1950s, including its effects on the intelligentsia, to the civil rights movement of the 1960s, and beyond. The author takes an historian's perspective, and reminds the reader that the Cold War is now a thing of the past. The question is posed, "Where do we go from here?"
