Foreign Affairs;Jan1974, Vol. 52 Issue 2, p237
This article focuses on the impact of the Middle East crisis on 1973 on the relations between the U.S. and Europe. Over the last few years, there have been a number of occasions for dispute between the U.S. and its European allies. The policies of the European Community have been denounced as harmful to economic interests of the U.S. Europeans have been accused of unhelpfulness in the field of international monetary reform. The accusations made by U.S. Secretay of State Henry Kissinger regarding parochialism were especially aimed at what he considered to be the narrow European view of world economic problems. On their side, Europeans have been worried by the increasingly dominant role played in U.S. foreign policy by the dialogue with the Soviet Union. Understandably enough, the establishment of a modus vivendi with Russia and the conclusion of agreements to regulate the relationship between the two superpowers have been the central pre-occupation of U.S. foreign policy since 1969. This is hardly surprising, given the risks involved in any failure to stabilize the balance of nuclear power. Europeans, however, have shown increasing disquiet lest these bilateral negotiations should lead to a sacrifice of their interests and a European settlement in which they were not consulted.
