December 1978
Foreign Affairs;Winter78/79, Vol. 57 Issue 2, p244
This article deals with the social problems in the U.S. in 1978. So it has certainly been in the fall of 1978, with the Camp David summit, an accompanying major change in the perceived, as well as inwardly felt, competence and confidence of the Administration of President James Earl Carter Jr., the apparently imminent conclusion of a SALT II agreement, a new stage in the ongoing crisis of the dollar and the closely related effort to create a European Monetary System, major political changes in Iran, and a steadily growing threat of serious armed conflict in southern Africa.
