Due Week 9 and worth 175 points

This paper will be a revised and expanded version of the first research paper. Based on your instructor’s

feedback, you will first revise the first paper.

Write three-to-four (3-4) new pages that address the following:

1.Define presidential doctrine and summarize the regional or global events during the Cold War leading

up to the formation of the presidential doctrine

up to the formation of the presidential doctrine you wrote about in Assignment 1.

2. Select one country you wrote about in Assignment 1 and describe the Cold War relationship that

existed between the country you selected and the U.S. before the presidential doctrine was announced.

3. Describe the relationship that currently exists between the U.S. and the country you selected in section

(2) above.

4. Describe the effect that the presidential doctrine has had on regional or global affairs since it was

5. Assess whether or not the presidential doctrine you wrote about in Assignment 1 doctrine had had the

intended effect of altering the behavior of the country you selected in section (2) above since the doctrine

was first announced.

6. Use at least four (4) quality academic resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and other

Websites do not qualify as academic resources.

To help you understand this assignment further, the following description and examples may be useful.

Step 1: Define doctrine and identify why a president would want to announce one.

A doctrine is an ideological platform that a president uses to advance a policy towards a country or region

in order to accomplish foreign policy goals for the United States, so you will need to expand on this

theme.

Refer back to Assignment 1, and build on whatever doctrine you wrote about then. Say, for example, you

selected the Truman Doctrine. Therefore, this is the only thing you will write about in Assignment 2 step 1.

Step 2: Select one country you wrote about in Assignment 1 and describe the Cold War relationship that

existed between it and the U.S.

Before the presidential doctrine was announced. In the case of Truman, you would pick either the Soviet

Union, Greece, or Iran, since all three were affected by his doctrine. If you are writing about the

Eisenhower Doctrine, you would choose Lebanon or Egypt; if you wrote about the Kennedy Doctrine, you

would have write about Cuba or Vietnam; if your wrote about the Nixon Doctrine, you would choose either

Vietnam, Saudi Arabia or Iran; if you chose Carter, you would select either Iran or Afghanistan; and if you

wrote about the Reagan Doctrine, you would select Nicaragua, Angola, Russia or Afghanistan (although

there were several others).

Step 3: Describe what effect the presidential doctrine you chose has had on regional or global affairs

since it was announced during the Cold War.

That is, how did the doctrine change the status quo regionally or globally after it was announced by the

U.S.? What happened in Western Europe after the Truman Doctrine was announced? What happened in

the Middle East after the Eisenhower Doctrine was announced? What happened with Cuba or Vietnam

after kennedy offered up his doctrine of flexible

after Kennedy offered up his doctrine of flexible response? What happened in Southeast Asia or the

Persian Gulf after the Nixon Doctrine went in effect? What happened in the Middle East after the Carter

Doctrine was announced? What happened in Central America or Africa or the Middle East after Reagan

announced his doctrine?

Step 4: Refer back to the country you selected in step two and describe the relationship that currently

exists between the U.S. and that country.

How has the relationship changed between the U.S. and that country since the doctrine was announced?

Step 5: Evaluate whether or not the presidential doctrine had had the intended effect of altering the

behavior of the one country you selected in section (2) above since the doctrine was first announced.

Your assignment must:

•Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides;

references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional

instructions.

•Include a cover page containing the titleof the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name,

the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required

page length.

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:
