The time period that followed World War II presented Americans with a feeling of social unrest as a result of the threat of communism both in and outside of the United States, the ongoing arms race with the Soviet Union, and the domestic problems such as the patterns of poverty. However, the Eisenhower Administration did a sufficient job to contain these threats through his various policies. He successfully prepared the U.S for a possible war that seemed inevitable to many Americans, created a space program in response to the advancements of the Soviet Union, and passed various legislations to regulate the domestic affairs. Therefore, against the varying opinions of his rivals, Eisenhower dealt with the issues regarding the Cold War in a rather tactful manner. After the death of Stalin, Nikita Khrushchev extended the policy of “peaceful coexistence” to America. However, the U-2 incident subjected this policy to be withdrawn, producing the bitterness of the Cold War. Through the constant production of arms of the Soviets, American citizens feared that they would be the target of a possible nuclear attack (Doc C).
