Red Storm Rising, The Hunt for Red October, and the Cold War
A 5 page review of the Cold War years. The author of this paper emphasizes that the intent of the Cold War was to stabilize world politics and to maintain peace. In reality, it could be contended that the real outcome of this political approach was anything but a peaceful and secure world order. Indeed, the Cold War itself was a kind of warfare. Even in recognition of the fact that no actual warfare between the two main players, the Soviet Union and the United States erupted during the Cold War years, it was a period of intense hostility. This hostility is no better imprinted on the American psyche than through literature and movies. Two books in particular have added to our understanding of the Cold War. These books, both by author Tom Clancy, are “The Hunt for Red October” and “Red Storm Rising”. Each offers significant insight to the tensions which existed between the Soviet Union and the United States during the Cold War years. Bibliography lists 3 sources.
Cold War Ideology and Music
A 3 page research paper that examines the role of music in the Cold War. The writer argues that in order to win the ideological battle, both sides were determined to co-opt music for their own purposes. Examination of this period demonstrates that music was both affected by the Cold War and also that it affected the Cold War, as it was used to sway the public mindset toward specific ideologies.
