Publisher's Summary

Growing up during The Cold War: A Personal Perspective from the Forties to Today relates in narrative form the tumultuous, exciting and sometimes frightening era referred to as the Cold War Era. Civil Rights, Women's Lib, Anti-War Drafts and changes in the educational system all characterized the times. Told from the point of view of some of those who lived in the central part of the United States, far from the conflict and even decently distant from the unrest in urban centers, it is an effort to portray both the uncertainty and the wonder as exploration of space both within and without was mood of the times.

Such a work cannot replace the experience of living through those times. And, no doubt, since any writer must pick and choose between events that occur in such times, there are things that have been left out of this account. However, it can serve as a springboard for those who wish to explore this recent history and it places a variety of sources into a coherent timeline of events and changes. It is not limited to conflict, but also embraces advances spurred on by the rivalry between the United States and Soviet Russia. Landmark changes occurred in the United States legal system, as well.

Whistling narrator

Content is interesting but narrator whistles when he talks and is very distracting. I could not listen to much at one time.
