So, having done your reading on the role of the Arms Race (esp. p.111-112 of handout), I want to know your thoughts on its significance. A reminder of the questions:
•Did atomic diplomacy really work? (“Atomic diplomacy”- use of the threat of atomic weapons to force other nations to stop doing something, or threaten them into submission.)
•Did the world benefit from the Arms race?
•Would the Cold War have been so cold if the arms race had not been so accelerated?
•To what extent did the nuclear arms race make the world a more dangerous place in the years 1949-1963?
You must contribute valid opinions (backed up with some examples) on at least 2 of these 4 topics, but the more you discuss the better!
Don’t forget also- first lesson back you’ll be sitting a selection of questions from knowledge tests 7-10 on our previous unit of work, so do some Christmas consolidation!
