• A fascinating exploration of the evolution of American foreign policy in the era of superpower détente

Jussi M. Hanhimäki offers students and scholars a survey of the evolution of American foreign policy during a key period in recent history, the era of superpower détente and global transformation in the 1960s and 1970s.
