- Program Description
“1971 was one of the great turning points of modern times. It brought several diplomatic revolutions, the most significant being the reentry of Red China, with the sponsorship of the United States, into the concert of nations. The Soviet Union, stepping up its acrimonious attacks on Communist China that had now become its primary enemy , moved closer to the United States. The dangerous animosity between West Germany and the Soviet Union was softened by a series of conciliatory agreements. Great Britain took the plunge that brought her into the European Common Market as America relinquished its role as the world arbiter of fiscal policies. When the year ended most of the 1945 post war agreements had been repudiated and a new world, with revised priorities, rose out of the now obsolete commitments, restrictions, and alliances of the old.”
