Truman’s Containment policy
Directions: Assess the successes and failures of Truman’s Containment policy. Do you think that the U.S. should have responded differently to Soviet expansion? If so, how? If not, why?
Provide at least one reference, cited and referenced in the format outlined in Citations Booster to support your response.
All students are expected to give proper credit to any source of information they use in any assignment. It is expected that you do not know everything. If you did, why would you be here? You are allowed to use the words of others in your writing, but you MUST indicate the source of that information. Sources of information include any book (INCLUDING the textbook), magazine, newspaper, journal article, video or sound recording, web page, Internet site, encyclopedia, brochure, personal interviews or anything else not originally written or created by you.
That means if you use quotes from a book, or find an idea on a website and use your own words to describe it, or find information in a table in a magazine, you MUST tell where you found it. To not do so is plagiarism (see the Syllabus for consequences of committing plagiarism). Proper credit is given by using a “citation.” A citation includes all the relevant information needed to find that book, article, or whatever so that others can find it easily. Remember that just because you don’t include a citation, it doesn’t mean that someone else can’t find it, it just means you will be in trouble for not citing it when it is found!
