Decolonization in Asia and Africa

Based on your understanding of the reading and the videos, take bulleted notes on the following:

  • The roots of independence in India, both from the British and Indian perspectives (e.g. elections in Britain, Muslim separatism, etc.)
  • The effects of newly independent Asian and African governments and their role in the Cold War (e.g. the nonalignment movement, the Vietnam war, etc.)
  • The continued role of Britain shaping middle eastern affairs (e.g. creation of Israel, Suez Crisis), and the role of Arab nationalism in the process.
