(p.209) Conclusion
The Literary Cold War, 1945 to Vietnam

Adam Piette

Edinburgh University Press

This concluding chapter takes a look back at the lessons that were discussed in the previous chapters. It stresses that the book explores the different contradictions that were forced on all citizens by the nuclear endgames of the Cold War, the sacrifices these citizens made, and the ever-present threat of the Janus-faced force. It emphasises the victimizing structures of the ideological control systems of the Cold War, as well as its movement in the public realm. The chapter also warns that the Cold War is not truly over, and that it still exists through nuclear trauma and phobia.

Keywords:   contradictions, nuclear endgames, Cold War, sacrifices, Janus-faced force, victimizing structures, ideological control systems, public realm, nuclear trauma
