Summary
"In Paving the Way for Reagan: The Publications of Conservative Opinion and the Forging of the Reagan Foreign Policy author Laurence R. Jurdem delves into the critical role Human Events, National Review, and Commentary played in shaping the modern conservative movement. Those who wrote for the three publications believed that American foreign policy was in a state of paralysis. Commentators on the right connected the crisis in US diplomacy to fundamental flaws they believed also existed in the country's domestic agenda initiated by the social and economic programs of Presidents Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, and Carter. These right wing pundits contended that the social disorder in the US caused by frustration and uncertainty over the war in Vietnam and Lyndon B Johnson's "Great Society," had undermined the confidence of the country. Incorporating primary sources and oral histories from the publication's writers and editors, Jurdem explores how critiques of liberal US foreign policy on Vietnam, China, S.A.L.T., the United Nations, the Panama Canal, Rhodesia, and the Middle East helped pave the way for Reagan's "Peace through Strength" foreign policy. At its core a study of the role of conservative media in shaping US foreign policy, Paving the Way for Reagan will appeal to those with interests in US foreign relations, diplomatic history, presidential studies, and communications studies"--
