Abstract

The origins of the Cold War were examined in order to create an annotated bibliography for students in Dade County secondary schools, and a suggested purchase list for Dade County secondary school media center supervisors. The immediate post-World War II period was defined as the years 1945, 1946, and 1947, from the Yalta Conference to the Marshall Plan. The historiography of the period can be divided into three broad categories: traditionalist, revisionist, and post-revisionist. Fifty-three books were reviewed, some in each category. A rationale was proposed and followed for the selecting of books in each field of writing. The annotated student bibliography and suggested purchase list have included representative books from each area.
