Summary

The New Higher History series offers a full-colour, topic-based approach to the CfE Higher History syllabus. Covering all of the main issues within each topic area, this series includes investigative techniques, use of evidence and a variety of activities to enable students to develop the necessary skills to tackle both extended-response and source-based questions successfully. New Higher History: The Cold War 1945-1989 provides comprehensive coverage of this topic offered in Section 3 of the course. The core issues within the topic are fully explored, preparing students for the extended-response questions in the external examination. This book investigates the chain of events leading up to and throughout the Cold War, looking at: the background and reasons for the emergence of the Cold War in the years up to 1955 the control of Eastern Europe by the Soviet Union, up to 1961 the causes and consequences of the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962. America's growing involvement in Vietnam and the path to their defeat in South-East Asia.
