Answer:

Towards the end of the 1800’s and start of the 1900’s, European powers began asserting more direct control on their colonial holdings, hoping to extend their authority abroad and establish global dominance. During this era of New Imperialism, the spread of Western nationalism furthered the motivation to build strong, political states. To achieve this, Europeans employed political, economic and social tactics in places like South Africa, taking individual choice away from the natives of the area, forcing them to adapt to Western demands that were fueled by the myth of white supremacy.

Answer:

Using the property of cross multiplication, we find that 4y=15. To solve for y divide both sides by 4 to get 4y/4=15/4. The 4's cancel out on the left and you get y=15/4.

Question:

What were the major factors which led to the Cold War conflict in Southeast Asia during the post World War 2 period?

Answer:

Southeast Asia had been colonized by Western nations for centuries. This created a fragmented region of countries that experienced a rapid period of industrialization during the 19th and 20th centuries. After the war, Southeast Asian independence movements created a unique situation in which countries like Vietnam and the Philippines fought for freedom but still relied on the West for economic and financial stability. This factor allowed many countries, specifically the US, Russia, and China, to intervene in their affairs, thus starting a long period of war and conflict within the region.
