The vast changes that have taken place in the world since the end of the Cold War in 1991  have roots that are deeply implanted in the histories of the world’s nations and civilisa tions. But much of the contemporary impact of these multi faced changes can be traced  back to the Cold War itself. The purpose of this course is to trace its development, its rise  and ultimate demise, and to illustrate the way in which the rivalry between the United  States of America and the Soviet Union impinged upon the life of every country in the  world, with some countries such as Cuba, Vietnam and Afghanistan bring traumatically  affected by it. The Marshall Plan (1948), the Berlin Airlift (1948), the Korean War (1950- 1953, the Berlin Wall (1961), the Cuban Missile Crisis (1962), the Prague Spring (1968) – these are some of flashpoints of the Cold War, but there are many more; taken together  they constitute a momentous, and at times highly dangerous period in world history and  whose influence has impacted greatly on the world of today.
