    I can tell you everything from the Cold War on, I have had an amazing global teacher and the Cold War was named the Cold War because althought there was a lot of fighting to contain communism which the USA wanted, the soviets liked communism. It's called the Cold War because USA and soviets say they were going to use nuclear weapons but never did (thank god)

    NATO was an organization formed by USA and their allies and it stands for North Atlantic treaty organization and it contrasts with WARSAW which was formed by the soviets and their friends.

    Marshall plan- USA was kind enough to aid everyone in Europe with financial assistance due to the ww2 bombings and everything, only if they wanted help

    Berlin Wall was a wall that made west and east Germany , no one could escape until it was knocked down in the late 1900s

    Truman doctrine - supported countries that rejected communism

    Cuban missile crisis - Fidel Castro was leading Cuba and apparently Cuban missiles were aimed at Florida and USA wanted them to take it off

    India consisted of Hindus and Muslims but the Muslims felt they weren't getting equal rights so they split up into India and Pakistan

    Decolonization , the British stopped running Africa but harsh military dictators tried to rule Africa

    Apartheid - division of whites and blacks in Africa

    1952 invasion of Suez Canal - Egypt claimed the canal and Britain made a pact with France and Israel to get it back, and they won, but pressure from the rest of the world made Britain and France and Israel give it back lol

    Great Leap Forward - steel industry and everything was industrialized . Everyone shared food and everyone lived in a utopian society but this soon failed as starvation occurred

    1966 cultural revolution was Mao ze dongs Ida to change Chinese culture and Chinese system like move away from the past and the old ideas such as Buddhism and move towards a new future

    Tiananmen Square - in the 1980s there were students that protested against the rulers in Tainanmen square which was the central hub of the town yet military men fired onto the crowd, injuring many people

    Arab Israeli conflict- Jewish people wanted a land for themselves called Palestine yet Egyptians hated it

    Perestroika was soviets way of fixing up the economy after the fall of the Soviet Union

    Glasnost has glass in it which means clear such that the people know what the government is doing and yeah lol

    Democracy became more wide spread

    The Soviet Union collapsed because of military spending and weak economy

    Germany's Berlin Wall was finally knocked down!

    Source(s): Sorry I couldn't answer some of them, I am a student myself :(
