Working with both primary and secondary sources, explain how and why the position of the United States in the world changed between the end of World War I and the end of the 20th century. Thus, we are studying historical change over time. Paper: minimum of 5 pages plus bibliography in MLA format. As you develop your narrative, incorporate key passages from the primary sources to reinforce your points. Research Materials: Confine your research to the sources that I provided. All of the sources used in the course, the textbook, Encounters and Traditions, as well as other class materials 4/14/2019 Writers Hub – Freelance Writing https://www.writershub.org/writer/orders/398414#instructions 4/6 can be used. In addition, for this assignment, I have included additional web-based sources for your use. These are composed of primary source documents. Some of these are extensive but it is not always necessary to read them in their entirety. Particularly with treaties, the main points are summarized in the beginning. Methodology: I recommend that you start with the textbook, Encounters and Traditions. Most of the material you need will be found in Chapters 33-38, WWI-Present, so you will need to read ahead. As you read through these, construct a timeline so you can keep key figures and events in their proper sequence. After you have a pretty firm concept of the timeline and major developments, turn to the primary sources to enhance your understanding of the issues. Note: This is a World History course so you should be examining U.S. actions in light of developments around the world. Example: Since the end of WWI, the British and French exercised influence over the Middle East. Eleven years after WWII in 1956, the British and French invaded Egypt to reassert control over the Suez Canal. President Eisenhower was furious, the Soviets threatened nuclear war, so the British and French were forced to back down. The Eisenhower Doctrine of 1957, declaring a larger role for the U.S. in the Middle East, needs to be viewed in this context.
