The Cold War is only a topic in history books for today's teens and college students––many who were just born in 1989 when the war ended. They never knew a time when Europe was divided, the United States and the Soviet Union faced off from opposite sides of the international system, and the world lived under the awful specter of nuclear war.

What important lessons should their generation draw from the experience of the Cold War? Randall Stone, Director of the Skalny Center for Polish and Central European Studies and associate professor of political science at the University of Rochester, will answer that question and more in "The Cold War as History."

Stone is the author of Satellites and Commissars and Lending Credibility, and his research focuses on international political economy, international relations, and Central and East European politics.

This event is co-sponsored by the Skalny Center for Polish and Central European Studies and the Russian Studies Program.
