The Flawed Architect

Eager to demonstrate the continuance of détente, Kissinger found that the best means of renewing détente was the conclusion of the SALT II agreement. This chapter illustrates in detail the events that occurred in the fall of 1974 and how the apparent progress on the renewal of détente in his meetings in Moscow and Vladisvostok shifted negatively. In addition, it argues that the search for renewal in U.S foreign policy was not cut down due to Kissinger's unwillingness to pursue an active agenda, but rather, détente was hampered due to the inability of the new president to lead an unruly post-Watergate legislature.
