About this Item

Politics of Nixon & Obama
Klaus Larres discusses how the 1970s, like today, were characterized by controversial military engagements, deep political divisions and severe financial disruptions. Larres describes the Nixon/Kissinger approach to overcoming U.S. "decline" in an increasingly multilateral world and analyzes whether this approach is still relevant for the current administration.
