The post-war years witnessed a "freedom explosion" across the globe, especially in Asia and Africa. Why did several of these new nations turn to the Soviet Union rather than the United States for support

  • American history -

    One reason was idealistic; the communist philosophy appealed to some nations that had been ruled with no regard for workers and their rights.

    A more important reason, though, was economic. The USSR and the US often vied to see which one could offer the most to these emerging nations.
