America's Half-Century: United States Foreign Policy in the Cold War and After

America's Half-Century: United States Foreign Policy in the Cold War and After - Thomas J. McCormick This book, which was a text in my fall 2005 Post-WWII America course, offers an interesting view of the Cold War and America's time as a superpower through a Marxist lens. It therefore firmly takes the view that the military struggles of the Cold War (including Vietnam, of course) were entirely about economic competition between superpowers and other nations. Ideology had no role at all.
