Politics of Childhood in Cold War America

The aftermath of the World War II saw America become increasingly fearful of Soviet influence on its way of life. In response to this, a wide variety of institutions sought to protect the United States not just through militarization and diplomacy but also through the production of loyal, patriotic, disciplined citizens. These were created through child rearing and educational methods designed to produce desirable personality traits and to prevent antisocial behaviour. In this study, Kordas examines how childhood and adolescence were shaped by - and contributed to - Cold War politics in America.
