The unit will center on US foreign policy issues from c. 1946 to 1960, centering on Cold War issues.

Start with the very basic Post-War Foreign Policy unit outline -- 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 comments page.
