America and the World
ESSAY OPTION #3: America and the World
Between 1941 and 1974, the United States’ relation to the rest of the world underwent major changes. Write an essay that examines this relationship with reference to more than one part of the world (examples: Western Europe, the Soviet Union, and/or Asia), and that considers both allies and enemies. You do not need to devote equal attention to each decade, but may want to select specific moments or divide the time period into phases and examine what economic, political, military, and other considerations influenced each.
