ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the challenges of the administration of U.S. President Ronald Reagan. U.S. allies in Europe and Japan have more relative power to compete with a battered American economy than they had. Early public division within the Reagan Administration, combined with usual European disarray, prevented that challenge from being met, and by mid-1982 the NATO Alliance was embroiled in acrimonious dispute over the projected pipeline to bring gas from Siberia to Western Europe.
