AMH 2035 - History of the United States in the Cold War Era


3 credits
This survey course provides students with a history of the political development of American society as the United States became more profoundly engaged with the larger world. Special emphasis is placed upon the politics of the Cold War at home and abroad, and the post-cold war challenges faced by the nation. Attention will also be given to the profound changes the nation has experienced on the domestic scene including the social movements of the postwar era and the changing United States economy since 1945. This course will use Hollywood films and other cultural products as lenses on these issues, allowing students to gain insight into the role historical context plays in cultural production.
