I'm growing to loathe my daughter's 4th grade social studies book, Our Golden State by James Banks, et al. In their glossary, here's their definition of the Cold War.

Cold War - The belief that the United States would be in a war with the Soviet Union.
I don't even know where to start.

Sounds like its time to officially complain to the publisher. They do actually pay some attention.
