The Culture Of The Cold War

By Stephen J. Whitfield
Johns Hopkins University Press, 1991
261 pp. $35.00

A lively and well-documented account of how the Cold War both produced and was sustained by super-patriotism, intolerance and suspicion, and how these pathologies infected all aspects of American life in the 1950s-entertainment, churches, schools. Older readers will remember and still be amazed; younger ones will find this a readable introduction to a bizarre aspect of the American past.
