Framed by the beginning and end of the great ideological divide between the communist east and the capitalist west – the Cold War - the unit will lead you through the major political and social changes that occurred between 1945 and 1991: the fall of the iron curtain across Europe, life in the communist countries, the Vietnam war, the Arab/Israeli conflict, and the eventual demise of European communism. Against this backdrop of world tension the unit will examine the rise of new nations in Asia, Africa and the Pacific and the development of the social movements of environmentalism and feminism and grass roots activism.
