ABSTRACT
The article discusses domestic views of foreign policies promoted by former U.S. president Richard M. Nixon and former U.S. national security adviser Henry Kissinger. Nixon and Kissinger developed a foreign policy strategy that recognized the dominance of the U.S., the Soviet Union and China and sought to limit communism without provoking a confrontation with the Soviet Union. Nixon and Kissinger centralized foreign policy control to avoid bureaucratic hindrances and promoted détente with the Soviet Union. Nixon's use of public relations to promote his policies with the assistance of journalist John Scali and former U.S. chief of staff H.R. Haldeman is noted. The withdrawal of U.S. troops from Vietnam by Nixon and his attendance of Soviet summits is discussed.
