Summary
In the postwar free world, America becomes the acknowledged leader, striving to rebuild democracies abroad. As the Iron Curtain falls and the Cold War begins, fear of communism spreads through the country, sparking Joseph McCarthy's communist witch-hunts. At the same time, the U.S. finally faces up to racial separatism when the groundbreaking Supreme Court decision Brown v. Board of Education outlaws segregation.
