Fredrik Logevall and Andrew Preston. In the grand trajectory of the American Century, the 1970s stand out as a curious anomaly. For most of this era, especially the periods following World War II and the end of the Cold War, the United States was far more powerful than any other country-more powerful, even, than its only superpower rival, the Soviet Union. How American foreign policy fared under such pressures is the principal concern of this book, which focuses on the period from the start of Richard Nixon’s administration in 1969 to the end of Gerald Ford’s brief term in January 1977. It was, it could be said, the Kissinger Era.

Long considered Nixon's great strength, his foreign policy was often as flawed as the rest of his presidency. His opening of China, his greatest accomplishment, failed in some of its major goals. It was hoped that this would lead to pressure from China and Russia to end the war in Vietnam. This did not happen. It also allowed us to ignore an ally's genocidal actions in Bengal. If you are into foreign policy debates this is an outstanding book.

Nixon's triumphant foreign policy blankets this book in an objective and critical review despite the pressures at home which did not distract him from his goals.

Professor Logevall and Professor Preston have put together a book of essays and articles about foreign policy and Richard Nixon. They are really editors, the articles and essays are by seventeen other scholars. Lots of the material uses newly declassified materials. This book is very academic and is not an easy read but it is so informative that it is a valuable edition to any political science collection. RECOMMENDED
