The paper should be five pages long. Shorter papers will be penalized. DO NOT TURN IN A PAPER THAT IS LONGER THAN SIX PAGES. The specific content of the paper is what is most important. A six-page paper will not necessarily receive a higher grade than a five-page paper; it all depends on the content and organization of the paper.

There are two prompts. Choose ONE. Your first task is to think about the big themes of the course to which your prompt relates. In the introductions to the two chapters in your textbook that contain the documentary materials about which you will write, you will find discussion of the big themes as they relate to the documents. You should write your own version of such a discussion in a single paragraph, based on your knowledge of the post-World-War-II world, with reference to the specific documents you will choose for analysis in your paper. When you have accomplished this, you will have written the first draft of your THEME PARAGRAPH for your essay.

Prompt One According to Ambassador Nikolai Novikov (“Telegram to Moscow,” pp. 197-200), what were American objectives following World War II? How did Novikov’s views compare with what Americans believed they were doing as set forth originally by President Truman with his policy of containment? Meanwhile, in the Third World after World War II, new revolutionary movements for National Liberation were emerging as the Cold War unfolded. Although these Third World movements were affected by the Cold War, they also sought new forms of political independence. In the last part of your paper, explore the Third World perspective on the world after 1945 among revolutionaries in Vietnam.
