This paper discusses two views on the causes of the Cold War: Russian treachery and a long history of lack of trust. The author points out that the roots of the Cold War go much further back into history than the events of World War II. The paper concludes that Russia?s clear attempt to do what Hitler had failed to do, dominate Europe, made the Cold War inevitable.

From the Paper:

"The United States and its Western allies saw this as little more than the colonization of Eastern Europe. These countries knew first hand what the U.S.S.R. was doing. As the Soviets emerged as a world power, they were expanding their economic base just as many Western powers had done in the previous three - four centuries -- by conquering other lands and people."
