In this lecture, Masuda Hajimu reevaluates what the Cold War was, examining not only centers of policymaking, but also the seeming aftereffects of Cold War politics: suppression of counterrevolutionaries in China, the White Terror in Taiwan, the Red Purge in Japan, and McCarthyism in the United States. Such purges were not merely the end results of the Cold War, Masuda argues, but forces that necessitated the imagined reality of the Cold War in attempts at restoring purity and tranquility at home.
Masuda Hajimu is Assistant Professor of History at the National University of Singapore and author of Cold War Crucible: The Korean Conflict and the Postwar World (Harvard University Press, 2015). He graduated from Rutgers University in 2005 and earned a Ph.D. at Cornell University in 2012.
