America in the 20th Century: The Cold War

This video series examines the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union in the second half of the 20th century.

Full description: 

This video series examines the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union in the second half of the 20th century. 

"Although communists and capitalists united during World War II to crush fascism, Hilter's defeat set the stage for allies to become adversaries once more. This program frames the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union as the defining conflict of much of the 20th century. Viewers are shown how the world's two superpowers faced off in an uncompromising showdown over ideology and economics that would persist for five decades - not in a vacuum, but under the omnipresent threat of nuclear holocaust."--Original container.

Organization focusing on government policies concerning people with low to moderate income. 

From their website: "The Center conducts research and analysis to help shape public debates over proposed budget and tax policies and to help ensure that policymakers consider the needs of low-income families and individuals in these debates. We also develop policy options to alleviate poverty.

In addition, the Center examines the short- and long-term impacts of proposed policies on the health of the economy and the soundness of federal and state budgets. Among the issues we explore are whether federal and state governments are fiscally sound and have sufficient revenue to address critical priorities, both for low-income populations and for the nation as a whole."
