Midwest Skeptics Society:

“The Cold War: What It Was and How We Survived to Talk About It” by Larry Yates this coming Sat, March 10, 7pm at Perkins.  I'm looking forward to this so join us and see how we survived the Cold War.

To RSVP, address and more info about this group go to:  http://www.meetup.com/skeptics-137/

I was born the year the Cold War began and, to my surprise, managed to survive it.  In my talk, I will present an overview of the four broad phases through which the Cold War passed and a few of the major themes found in each phase.  I’ll also look briefly at two or three Cold War crises—the Cuban Missile Crisis, Vietnam, the Middle East wars, most likely—and talk about what happened behind closed doors to resolve them.  Finally, I’ll throw out some suggestions on how the Cold War experience is relevant to us today, especially in a presidential election year.  For those who lived through most or all of the Cold War, come and find out what really happened.  You might be surprised.  To those who missed it and the thrill of thinking each year the human race might be nuked out of existence, come and find out what all the fuss was about and why we are still around to talk about it. 
Larry Yates diplomatic/military historian.
