You will choose one of the following regions and work with the others who chose that
region to create and present a report to the class. The report should explain why and how the
United States became involved in the region at the time we are studying (hint: look at the content
due on the day of your presentation for help deciding what to focus on). Your presentation
should consider: the condition of the region before US involvement (war or political upheaval or
stability or alliances?), the goals for the involvement (control or trade or influence?), the method
of involvement (wars or political pressure or economics or secret operations?), and the outcome if known.
