Forced to Flutter: The Cold War and Washington’s Policy of Containment


  • Karan Khanna


This research project outlines the causes of the Cold War and its philosophical, sociological, economic, and political foundations. The project sheds light on the leaders and thinkers who presided over that great glacial conflict, suggesting how their policies affected people around the world and how the conflict still defines our world today. I employ both primary and secondary sources: original works and memoirs of the leaders and thinkers of the time, and sociological, economic, and political works by historians. The project situates the Cold War in historical and philosophical context.
