Burnham, James
December 1975
National Review;12/5/1975, Vol. 27 Issue 47, p1365
The article comments on a crucial turning-point in global dispositions of power. According to the author, a new orchestration of power requires new names, and new looks at entities with familiar but in adequate names. If a national constituency puts a traditional grassroots American into the White House, the Soviet hegemony may mark this as a turning-point in its own fortunes as well.
