A component of the Cold War, the policy was a response to a series of moves by the Soviet Union to expand Communist influence in Eastern Europe, China, and Korea. It represented a middle-ground position between appeasement and rollback. The word containment is associated most strongly with the policies of U.S. President Harry S Truman (1945-53), including the establishment of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, a mutual defense pact.
