    Seeking public opinion surveys made in Europe

    Michal Bleich Newbie

      Hi, I am an Art History student writing a Master degree thesis on the topic of art as a weapon during the cold war in the years of 1945-1960 in Europe. (Mainly concentrating on Abstract Expressionism). I am therefore looking for public opinion surveys which were made in Europe during the Cold War between 1945 and 1960 which deal with the perception of "America" or the notion of "Freedom" by the Europeans. I Shall be much obliged for any guidelines.
