GOVT 120
Fall 2011
Section: 01  

Lasting from 1945-1991, the Cold War was a seminal era in world history with a major impact on the study and conduct of international relations. The world we live in today is greatly shaped by the experience of the Cold War. Many of the issues and topics that preoccupy the world today, from Afghanistan to the uprisings in the Middle East, the political unification on Europe, and the dominance of the U.S.A., were all greatly influenced by the Cold War. This course will provide students with an understanding of the origins, evolution, and end of the Cold War. This course will examine the U.S.-U.S.S.R. relationship and how it impacted different world regions through decolonization, neo-imperialism, globalization, and political integration around the world.
