This course will study how the Cold War between the U.S. and the Soviet Union (1947-1991) played a major role in shaping the political, cultural, and social landscape of East Asia and Southeast Asia. In this course we will analyze the Cold War events such as the Korean War, and the Vietnam War from an Asian perspective. We will also look at other events such as the reconstruction of Japan and South Korea, American policy towards China, and the U.S. involvement in Indonesia and the Philippines. A portion of the class will also show how the Cold War in Asia affected Hawai`i.
