Summary
"After such a destructive and costly war, few would have anticipated the important, positive global changes that came after World War II. However, this title takes a tour of all the ingenious innovations that came in the wake of that war. A brief recap of the conflict provides context before the text explores the advances made in weaponry, medicine, and international cooperation. Attention is given to many of the challenging debates that arose postwar, including conflict between newly independent nations and the rise of the Cold War, fueling critical thinking about the impact-positive and negative-of adversity."--
