Yet, as already mentioned, the author claims that ideology was the main reason why the Soviet Union did eventually launch the conflict. However, as Roberts ‘hints’, not only Soviet ideology allowed for biased actions; it is possible to assume that the USA was also extremely loyal to its ideology: it developed and initiated the Marshall Plan, in such a way indirectly catalysing the outbreak of the Cold War. Arguing his case, the author moves chronologically through the case of Marshall Plan, explaining in the context of political history the escalation of the situation in 1947, which, after all, ended with the Cold War. His research Roberts bases on
Comparison of the two theories Operant conditioning was proposed by American psychologist B.F. Skinner in 1938. A.H. Maslow, who was also an American psychologist, first introduced his theory of Hierarchy of Needs (written as Maslow’s theory below) in 1943. Skinner advocates behaviorism while Maslow supports humanism. Skinner’s theory was based on I.P. Pavlov’s classical conditioning and E.L.Thorndike’s ‘Law of Effect’ (Iversen, 1992).
The scope of this investigation will focus only on U.S films shown in the Soviet Union. The first source which will be evaluated in depth is Sergei Zhuk’s essay “Hollywood’s insidious charms: the impact of American cinema and television on the Soviet Union during the Cold War”, published in 2014. The origin of the source is valuable because Zhuk is a professor of history at Ball State University, an expert on Russia, Eastern Europe and comparative European and American history of religious dissenters. Along with his prior knowledge he used resources like: interviews, essays, memoirs, documents, diaries, and periodicals to strengthen his knowledge about American cinema during the Cold War. In addition, the date of publication of this source, 2014, strengthens its value as it allows Zhuk to analyze all of the scenes that have been published thus far and review it from hindsight.

Under the term ‘external pressure’ Truman implied the expansion of USSR. The Truman Doctrine must also be considered in general as the policy of deterrence, whose author was George Kennan, one of the diplomats who once worked in Moscow and published in the Foreign Affairs journal an article on the need to contain the expansionist tendencies of the USSR. The Truman Doctrine existed in one form or another virtually throughout the entire Cold War period. However, it is worth to highlight two episodes - the war in Korea, which in the opinion of some researchers led to the truly global US policy and the Vietnam War, which in its turn sufficiently changed the views of the American ruling elite. The aim of this essay is to analyze the text of the Truman Doctrine and its application in practice.
The Philosophical Control in North Korea In the year 1903, English novelist, journalist and author Eric Arthur Blair was born, though better known today by his pen name, George Orwell. Orwell may be best known for his piece, 1984, written in the year 1949 and about the possible struggles that man will face through the current trends in time. 1984 was heavily influenced by the events of World War II, and the political and military figureheads such as Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin, along with groups and events like the Hitler youth or the Stalin purges. Those were some connections to the real world prior to the writing of 1984, but what about after the publication of the novel? Can dystopian themes and connections to 1984 be found in the
When you detect series of numbers repeating in a game of chance it means that you have found a breakdown in the system: you can predict the behavior of the game of chance and you have to use that knowledge for your own benefit.

The Monroe Doctrine and the ideology of Manifest Destiny played a significant role in the U.S. policy towards Latin America and the Caribbean in the nineteenth century to the early twentieth century through Imperialism. The Monroe Doctrine and the Manifest Destiny was the byproduct of the Imperialistic system. Imperialism aimed to control over a territory, population, and resources to gain economic benefits and to gain political strength through military tactics. The Monroe doctrine and the Manifest Destiny was an oxymoron with American democratic values. The Monroe doctrine and the Manifest Destiny greatly influenced the outcome of the Mexican-American War, the Spanish-American War and the Panama Canal with the backing of American corporations.
