It provided a different outlook on the Cold War, as it sought to show that it was not merely an American victory over "communism" and the Russians. There was far more to the Cold War than most Americans would care to admit, but Brands puts it out there for the reader to take in. Brands' purpose for writing

This was marked as an important event in the history of Southeast Asia and a major transformation. Most scholars generally agree that the Japanese Occupation played an important role as a catalyst in ending Western colonial rule in post-war Southeast Asia.

    There were many events, people, and opinions that caused the U.S. Civil War in 1861. But the three biggest causes were states rights versus federal rights, the abolition movement, and the controversy of allowing slavery in the territories. Although these may appear to be vague, it was the events inside that made the difference. The South had a vested interest in not allowing the federal government to interfere with their state rights.
