Synopsis by Perry Seibert
Part of the People's Century series, Brave New World -- The Cold War Begins documents how the United States and the Soviet Union changed from allies at the end of World War II to feuding, distrusting superpowers during the 20th century. Archival footage and new materials are utilized to illuminate such events as the leadership of Nikita Khruschev, the formation of NATO, and the creation of the Berlin Wall. This is a fine, informative film for those with an interest in the subject matter, as well as for teachers who may find it useful in a classroom setting.
