Episode Summary

With WWII at an end, the world soon faced a new challenge widely known as the Cold War. In 24 episodes, this series chronicles this war of ideologies, from its inception in the late '40s until the dissolution of the U.S.S.R. some 40 years later. With Europe and Japan absorbed in rebuilding their cities and economies, the United States and the Soviet Union emerged as the world's superpowers and standard bearers for incompatible political philosophies. Capitalism or Communism: The line was drawn in the sand. At the end of this survey of the Cold War, which came to a surprise juncture with the breakup of the Soviet Union, the program takes a thoughtful look at what can be learned from past events and what the future might hold for the global community.moreless
