US domestic issues from c. 1946 to 1960 will be explored. Emphasis will be on the domestic impact of the Cold War -- from bomb shelters to Sci-Fi films to religion, the burgeoning Civil Rights movement and the "loss of American innocence."

Once again, start with the unit outline. What you will find is very basic -- it is your job to add the details and information you feel, based on your use of the text and AP related materials, is missing. Remember, this will ulltimately be your review source for the exam, therefore the key words are COMPLETE and CONCISE. Too much information or inclusion of useless information will destroy the intent. Once you are done here, go to any of the links below to add you comments regarding the text and supplemental readings. Overall comments go on the general discussion page.
