Fall 2017 Lecture Series

Please join us at the Riverview Public Library for a six-week lecture series during which Dr. Hal Friedman, Professor of History at Henry Ford College, will lead us on a multifaceted and convoluted journey through the history of the Cold War. The series will most certainly prove captivating as it begins with the Cold War’s early historical foundations laid during the period, 1917-1953; refreshes our memories of President Eisenhower, McCarthyism, and the Fifties; and then, moves on through American life during the Vietnam War, and détente. While the overall rationale supporting the Cold War was one of mutual deterrence following the advent of the nuclear era, ongoing naval confrontations between the United States and the Soviet Union often shook the reliability of forces put in place to maintain deterrence. Finally, Dr. Friedman deals with the end of the Cold War.

Lectures will be given on Monday evenings starting on Monday, October 2, at 7:00 p.m.

RSVP in person or by phone at 734-283-1250.
