The Carter Years: Toward a New Global Order


In this comprehensive study Richard Thornton analyzes the wrenching policy-making process which defined Jimmy Carter's presidency. He argues that fundamental & never resolved policy differences between the president's two principal advisers -- Secretary of State Cyrus Vance & National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski -- infused every major policy decision from the beginning to the end of the Carter administration. Carter's inability to deal with the divergent approaches of his advisers led to the vacillations characteristic of his administration & to the public perception of his presidency as a failure.
