Communism and the Cold War

This two-sided videodisc helps students understand the historical context of the rivalry between the United States and the former Soviet Union. National leaders, decision makers, writers, and scholars bring perspective to the issues, and a wide variety of visual images dramatically portray the events that led to the collapse of communism and the end of the Cold War.

Side two of the disc examines the effects of the Cold War in various regions of the world, including the "proxy wars" in Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Africa, the Middle East, Cuba, and Central and South America, which reflected U.S.-Soviet tension and resulted in decades of global unrest.
