The Post-War Years [electronic resource]

A part of the series America in the 20th Century. The end of World War II was the beginning of U.S. global power as well as a milestone in the nation's economic prosperity and domestic political currents. This program examines America during the years 1945 to 1960, in which the Cold War loomed, babies boomed, and the suburban family became the bull's-eye of the mass market. Viewers learn about the leadership transition from Truman to Eisenhower, the creation of the interstate highway system, the advent of TV and rock-n-roll, and more. Correlates to standards from the National Council for the Social Studies.

Cold War [electronic resource]

A part of the series America in the 20th Century. Although communists and capitalists united during World War II to crush fascism, Hitler's defeat set the stage for allies to become adversaries once more. This program frames the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union as the defining conflict of much of the 20th century. Viewers are shown how the world's two superpowers faced off in an uncompromising showdown over ideology and economics that would persist for five decades - not in a vacuum, but under the omnipresent threat of nuclear holocaust. Correlates to standards from the National Council for the Social Studies.
