The Fall of the Soviet Union and the New Europe

Part 1 Please answer questions 1,2, and 4 using 400 words. Question number 3 only requires about 250 words. Use 4 scholarly references and cite using Chicago style citation and bibliography FOR EACH QUESTION (except question number 3, 1 source should suffice.) 1. Looking back at the Western World since the end of World War II, what would you identify as the single most significant development? How has that influenced the events of the past 50 + years? What are the portents for the future? 2. Evaluate the New Europe. How has it succeeded? How has it failed? 3. The American embassy in Moscow used to do an end-of-the-year round up of 'humor' (sic.) circulating in Moscow. The following is one of my favorites, from the early 1980s: Stalin, Khrushchev, and Brezhnev are riding in a train. The train stops. Stalin says, “I’ll take care of this.” He gets out, orders the train crew shot, along with everyone in a 3 mile radius. The train does not move. Now, it’s Khrushchev’s turn. He gives a fiery speech, denouncing western imperialism and lauding the achievements of communism, promising new hospitals and schools and TV sets for everyone in the area in which the train is sitting. Still, the train does not move. Finally, Brezhnev, stands up, pulls the curtains over the windows on both sides of the train, so that no one can see outside. He sits down. “It’s moving,” he says. Can anyone add Gorbachev to this joke? What would he say and do? Don’t worry about actually being funny—although, if you can be, so much the better. ( This question requires a bit of creativity. Try your best to make this as humorous as possible) 4. The two attached files show the CIA's take on the Soviet Union at the end of the Cold War. They highlight the attention that was being paid to internal Soviet affairs at that time and the difficulties in tracking events. The Soviet Cauldron is probably the most important intelligence report to come out of the US in this period. What factors are seen as important? How accurately do these documents track developments in the USSR? What insights might they have provided policymakers? Remember: the Soviet Union was the first state to simply fall apart without some violent upheaval--don't make the mistake of using hindsight to evaluate what was said before the events of 1991. (The two documents are attached) Part 2 Please answer 6 identifications from the list below. First define the term (who or what) then tell why it/he/she is important. A paragraph of 6-10 sentences with 1-2 scholarly references will suffice. (Chicago-Style Format) Albert Camus Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn Alexander Dubcek Boris Pasternak Brezhnev Doctrine Claude Lévi-Strauss Confederation of Independent States Council of Europe Deconstruction Détente Eurocommunism European Economic Community European Union Existentialism Helmut Kohl Irish Republican Army Jacques Derrida Jean-Paul Sartre John Paul II John XXIII Lech Walesa Leonid Brezhnev Margaret Thatcher Michel Foucault Mikhail Gorbachev Nicolae Ceausescu Parc Asterix Postindustrial Society Postmodernism Red Brigades Richard Nixon Ronald Reagan Solidarity Stagflation Structuralism Vaclav Havel
