Profiles the years following World War II when the world's security was threatened by a new menace: the cold war. Reveals how the threat of nuclear warfare shaped the next five decades as the superpowers competed in space and on land. Outlines how writers delivered the message of the poor, the ethnically or gender oppressed, and the outcasts of society and examines how they questioned life in a myriad of circumstances. Highlights such authors as Orwell, Salinger, Kerouac, Ginsberg, Pablo Neruda, Wole Soyinka, and Toni Morrison. Includes Teacher's Guide
