History 12-1: Khrushchev

Today we debriefed Ex 7 and discussed the transition to Khrushchev with some PPT slides (available on SlideShare.  We also saw a brief segment from the JFK biography.  I left you with some thinking around the Berlin Crisis that developed in 1961-62.  How should the leaders proceed.  Is Berlin worth the trouble?  If so, why?  If not, why not? This really is worth thinking about as you grapple with the concept of a cold war and how it affected policy and decisions.
