Interpreting the Past: Cold War Fears

One of the main jobs of historians is to interpret the past by reviewing primary documents, scholarly secondary sources, and then creating an analysis of this research. After reading your text and reviewing the assigned materials, submit an analysis of American Cold War fears.
You might want to consider the following questions, but you are not limited to them: Do you believe American fears of the Soviet Union/Communism were justified during the Cold War? Were fears of Communists within the government justified? Why would the government put out PSAs (such as “Duck and Cover”) that offer little in the way of real help? Do you see any lingering Cold War fears in modern America?
