The NewsHour is airing a two-part series on Guatemala this week, beginning with a focus on the high levels of violence against women. Over and over again in our reporting, the legacy of brutality left by decades of civil war was referenced as a major contributor to both the abuse and murder of women in Guatemala and the general attitude of impunity with which many violent crimes are committed in Guatemala.

More than 200,000 people were killed over the course of the 36-year-long civil war that began in 1960 and ended with peace accords in 1996. About 83 percent of those killed were Mayan, according to a 1999 report written by the U.N.-backed Commission for Historical Clarification titled “ Guatemala: Memory of Silence.” The report also concluded that the vast majority, 93 percent, of human rights violations perpetrated during the conflict were carried out by state forces and military groups.

    The Cold War was a state of geopolitical tension after World War II between powers in the Eastern Bloc (the Soviet Union and its satellite states ) and powers in the Western Bloc (the United States , its NATO allies and others). Historians do not fully agree on the dates, but a common timeframe is the period between 1947, the year the Truman Doctrine (a U.S. foreign policy pledging to aid nations threatened by Soviet expansionism) was announced, and 1991, the year the Soviet Union collapsed.

    The Cold War and its events have left a significant legacy. It is often referred to in popular culture , especially in media featuring themes of espionage (e.g. the internationally successful James Bond movie franchise) and the threat of nuclear warfare.

    i dont want to be mean but i'm a high senior too and i know that its a difficult time but honestly that is a horrible idea. it's the most overused non original BAD idea, unless maybe u approached it from a new perspective. i wrote my essay about a personal issue how it affected my life, and then how i overcame it and now how i am a better person. i know that souds boring but it portrayed my perfectly. you want colleges to see the better parts of you, so unless weight lifting is the only thing that has significant changed your life i would say no dont write about it

    While the explanations of the origins of the conflict in academic discussions are complex and diverse, several general schools of thought on the subject can be identified. Historians commonly speak of three differing approaches to the study of the Cold War: "orthodox" accounts, "revisionism," and "post-revisionism." However, much of the historiography on the Cold War weaves together two or even all three of these broad categories, [4] and more recent scholars have tended to address issues that transcend the concerns of all three ''schools''.

    Much of what has been written in the English speaking countries during the last ten years about the Soviet Union […] has been vitiated by this inability to achieve even the most elementary measure of imaginative understanding of what goes on in the mind of the other party. [8]

    The containment strategy also provided the rationale for an unprecedented arms buildup in the United States. In 1950, a National Security Council Report known as NSC–68 had echoed Truman’s recommendation that the country use military force to “contain” communist expansionism anywhere it seemed to be occurring. To that end, the report called for a four-fold increase in defense spending.

    In particular, American officials encouraged the development of atomic weapons like the ones that had ended World War II. Thus began a deadly “arms race.” In 1949, the Soviets tested an atom bomb of their own. In response, President Truman announced that the United States would build an even more destructive atomic weapon: the hydrogen bomb, or “superbomb.” Stalin followed suit.

    Try to get as much done as possible before class, and keep your space clean and organized to cut down on other work and make it easier to find what you need. Make sure you get the material, it ll make the work easier and quicker. Other than that.
