The rhetoric that immediately followed World War II created the political environment that resulted in a new world order, and in this work Hinds and Windt examine how this national and international reality developed. They study the process that led to perceptions of threat, and subsequent policies based on these perceptions, by exploring the pre-existing set of rhetorical beliefs as well as the speeches and addresses that built upon them. Among the topics covered are Churchill's Iron Curtain speech, the Truman Doctrine, and Marshall's speech announcing the Marshall Plan.
