a| A Long Cold War is a cultural history of the United States during the Cold War from 1945 to 1991. This is the story of America at her peak as a world power, when the fear of nuclear war and hyper competition with the USSR and China went hand in hand with a passion for consumer goods and light entertainment.Written in an almanac or journal form, it is a reference to give the reader a complete sense of what it would have been like to live in these times as events unfolded. The entries include scientific, political, cultural, military, sports, and weather events, inventions, and major calamities, as well as the fads of the day.
