Question Description

Please read all the directions and please make sure to interview people as it is needed for part of this assignment.

Assignment

The purpose of this Assignment is to analyze how people understand the Cold War today. For example, what do everyday people today think of when they hear the term “Cold War”? This is what you are going to find out!

In this Assignment, you will use a research method of a social scientist as you collect brief interviews with three people, asking them about their conceptions of the Cold War. Your interviewees can be anyone of your choosing: family members, friends, and so on.

Below are some suggested questions that you may want to ask:

  1. What words or phrases come to mind when you think of the term Cold War?
  2. Did you ever study the Cold War in school? If so, what are some aspects of the Cold War that you remember?
  3. Who were the parties involved in the Cold War?
  4. Can you name any key events that you mainly associate with the Cold War?

Take notes on what each of your respondents say. You will need these notes to refer to later when you do the formal write-up of the Assignment.

After you have completed the Assignment, write up your findings in a brief essay, which addresses the following:

  1. In the first part of your essay, briefly describe the Cold War in your own words. Remember that citations are needed when you paraphrase information from sources.
  2. Using quotes from your interviews, describe how each of your three respondents understand the Cold War. This is not the same as listing your interview questions and responses. You must group the answers together in a meaningful way and summarize what each person knows about the Cold War, using quotes from the interview to illustrate your findings.
  3. If your respondents’ understanding of the Cold War is different from the way the Cold War is defined in the first section of your essay, explain why that might be the case. (Also, if their definition of the Cold War is very similar, explain this as well.)
  4. You must include a copy of your interview notes. You may attach the notes to your assignment as an appendix or submit in a separate file.

Your essay should be 2–3 pages in length (500–700 words)

  • Double spaced
  • #12 font –Times New Roman
  • 1” margins on all sides
  • Separate cover page and reference page
  • A minimum of one (1) outside (including texts from the course, if you like) scholarly source
  • Remember: Wikipedia, encyclopedias, and encyclopedia-type sources (answers.com, infoplease.com and such) are not considered academic sources.

DIFFERENT CONCEPTIONS OF THE COLD WAR

Section I: Personal conception of the Cold war
I believe that the cold war was a struggle between two world powers after the World War
II. The two powers were the Soviet Union, being lead by the Russia, and the US and its Western
Allies. The war emanated from the ambitious pans of the Soviet Union to spread communism,
having already taken part of Asia, with nations such as China taking up the communism model.
The US was worried that the Soviet Union had began getting in the way of liberal regions and
wanted to expand the idea of communism, where the western believed in capitalism as the best
ideal of social and political existence (LaFe...
