Question: Help me pick!? Cold War 10 Points!!?
I'm doing a project on the cold war!. My topic was the cold war had many impacts on US!. I figured my topic was a bit broad!. Should I do it on how the cold war impacted the US from 1945-1990s (after the cold war) or how the cold war has impacted the US today!?
Which one would I find more info!. on!?

Thanks (:Www@QuestionHome@Com

I would say do it for the past because you will find a lot more informations in encyclopedias that is going to be more useful then the theories that everyone is throwing around in the present!. Not to mention that during the current economic status it is going to be hard to see how it is effecting us today!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

I feel like both have quite a bit of discussion, its just what you want to talk about!. Personally I would go with the period of during as you can talk about the implications on the the economy, world relations, media, culture!. Recently in one of my classes at my college we looked into the Cold War effect on film!. Look at Star Wars for ex!. its has the Cold War relation written all over it!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
