Katie Harris Intro. to European Civilization TR 12:30 November 15, 2007 The Inevitability of the Cold War The Cold War was a standoff between two political systems. These systems, communism and capitalism, were represented by the Soviet Union and the United States and Great Britain, respectively. This “conflict,” as it is often called, began in the 1940’s after World War II and ended in the late 1980’s to the early 1990’s. Though it began as an antagonism of economic and ideological traditions and beliefs, the Cold War escalated to a level of military power and threat. The causes of the Cold War are often heavily debated, and though there is no clear answer, one can attribute certain events to initiation of the conflict. These events caused such great fear for the citizens of both the Soviet Union and the United States as well as the leaders of the countries. This fear was significant in that it created the inevitability of the Cold War.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
