following statement was taken from a contemporary
account of Germany in 1939 Though the Fuhrers
anti-Semitic program furnished the National
Socialist party in the first instances with a
nucleus and a rallying-cry, it was swept into
office by two things with which the Jewish
Problem did not have the slightest connection.
On the one side was economic distress and the
revulsion against Versailles

HIST 410N Week 5 Case Study Winston Churchills
Iron Curtain Speech For more classes
visit www.snaptutorial.com   Case Study Winston
Churchills Iron Curtain Speech There are many
ways to get a feel for the events of the 20th
Century. One way is through the analysis of
primary source documents. Few documents set the
stage for the second half than Winston
Churchills 1946 speech in Fulton, Missouri.
Officially entitled The Sinews of Peace, it
came to be known as The Iron Curtain Speech, in
which Churchill laid out the challenges for the
West in general, and the US and Britain in
particular, regarding what would soon be known as
the Cold War.

HIST 410N Week 6 Case Study Ho Chi Minh and
Vietnamese Independence For more classes
visit www.snaptutorial.com   Case Study Ho Chi
Minh and Vietnamese Independence Was Ho Chi Minh
a Communist? To many Americans he was. But to
many Vietnamese he was a nationalist hero, and to
even a few Americans he was that as well, plus a
friend, and ally and a comrade in arms during
World War 2. It may be hard to paint Ho with any
color other than gray, and now, nearly 50 years
after his death and 40 years after the end of the
American war in Vietnam, even that color has
faded with time. What we do have are his words.

HIST 410N Week 6 Discussion DQ 1The End of the
Cold War For more classes visit www.snaptutorial.c
om   The End of the Cold War What impact did
Mikhail Gorbachevs ideas of glasnost (openness),
perestroika (restructuring) and demokratizatsiia
(democratization) have on Communist society? Were
these principles compatible with collectivization
and a command economy? Did Communist leaders
favor these principles or did they feel that
their hand were tied once they were introduced
into Communist society?

HIST 410N Week 6 Discussion DQ 2The not so Cold
War For more classes visit www.snaptutorial.com  
The not so Cold War It would be easy to dismiss
the Cold War simply as proof that Capitalism was
a better theory than Communism. Easy, but not the
whole story. In order for Communism to be
relegated to the dustbin of history, it first had
to be proven that its struggle against Capitalism
unecessary and thus irrelevant. How do the US and
the USSR close the gap in the last quarter of the
20th Century to allow Communism to go out with a
whimper and not a bang?

1988 UN Speech For more classes
visit www.snaptutorial.com   Case Study Mikhail
Gorbachevs 1988 UN Speech If the pace of
improving US-Soviet relations seemed rapid,
Mikhail Gorbachevs speech to the United Nations
General Assembly would shift the process into
overdrive. In this remarkable oration, which you
can find by clicking on the link below,Gorbachev
emphatically declared that all nations must have
the freedom to choose their own destiny, that
ideology had no place in foreign affairs, and
that great powers should renounce the use of
force in international relations. Review his
speech and answer in essay form the following
questions

HIST 410N Week 7 Discussion DQ 1Cold War
Nostalgia For more classes visit www.snaptutorial.
com   Cold War Nostalgia In the years after the
Cold War and the collapse of the bipolar order,
the world has undergone significant changes.
Chief among those changes has been a perceived
deterioration of world stability, not only in
terms of economics but also in terms of security.
What indicators could lead one to conclude that
in the years following the collapse of the
Communist world, things have gotten more
dangerous?

HIST 410N Week 7 Discussion DQ 2Brave New
World For more classes visit www.snaptutorial.com
  Brave New World Sothe Cold War is over. Time
to do a victory lap and celebrate the primacy of
American power. But the celebration seemed
short-lived, as there were plenty of other
concerns. Nothing is as it should be. Our
adversaries are now our allies, and our allies
are now competitors. The end of the Cold War
knocked down the Iron Curtain, but it also
destroyed conventional economic patterns. Is the
end of the Cold War proving to be good for world
peace, but not so good for world business?
