The Peace achieved at the end of World War II quickly gave way to a tense standoff between the democratic west and the communist east. This anthology covers an era of international intrigue and domestic turmoil as America faced not only a nuclear arms race with the Soviet Union, but war in Southeast Asia and race riots at home.
