HIS 209
The Nuclear Age
Summer 1999

Paper One



In a 5-page paper, I would like you to use Chapters One & Two in The Nuclear Age Reader to take a position on the following statement:

"It is clear that neither the United States, Great Britain, nor the Soviet Union were prepared for how World War II ended. Because of their surprise, no one quite knew, nor did anyone have a clear idea, as to how the question of nuclear weaponry should be approached. This confusion clearly made the end of World War II and the beginning of the Cold War something they did not have to be. And the world was worse off because of it."
