There are, of course, many possible essay questions that could be asked about this war.  For example:

  • "Whose fault was it that the Cold War began?"  You could ask this a little differently as "What actions and attitudes on the parts of various actors caused the Cold War to begin?"
  • "What caused the end of the Cold War?"
  • "Was the Cold War a more dangerous or a less dangerous time than the time since the Cold War ended?"
  • "Were US actions in the Cold War consistent with the idea of defending democracy?"
