The World Since 1982

The end of the Cold War not only put the United States and U.S.S.R. at peace but also contributed to the dismantling of nuclear arms, the breakup of the U.S.S.R., and the end of communism in Russia. The end of the Cold War was, in my opinion, definitely one of the most important changes in U.S. history since 1982.
