Foreign Policy After Haig

July 1982
America;7/10/1982, Vol. 147 Issue 2, p23
The author reflects on the challenges facing the implementation of foreign policy in the U.S. with the resignation of Alexander M. Haig Jr. as Secretary of State. The author asserts that Haig's criticism on the country's conflict against the Soviet Union and its role in Israeli's invasion of Lebanon posed further problems to President Ronald Reagan's administration. The author also argues that Haig's successor George Shultz will address the country's foreign relations problems.
