Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, the last shah of Iran, is often remembered as a pliant instrument of American power during the Cold War. In this groundbreaking study Roham Alvandi offers a revisionist account of the shah's relationship with the United States by examining the partnership he forged with Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger in the 1970s. Based on extensive research in the British and U.S. archives, as well as a wealth of Persian-language diaries, memoirs, and oral histories, this work restores agency to the shah as an autonomous international actor and suggests that Iran evolved from a client to a partner of the United States under the Nixon Doctrine. Nixon, Kissinger, and the Shah offers a detailed account of three key historical episodes in the Nixon-Kissinger-Pahlavi partnership that shaped the global Cold War far beyond Iran's borders. It examines the emergence of Iranian primacy in the Persian Gulf as the Nixon administration looked to the shah to fill the vacuum created by the British withdrawal from the region in 1971. It then turns to the peak of the partnership after Nixon and Kissinger's historic 1972 visit to Iran, when the shah succeeded in drawing the United States into his covert war against Iraq in Kurdistan. Finally, it focuses on the decline of the partnership under Nixon's successor, Gerald Ford, through a history of the failed negotiations from 1974 to 1976 for an agreement on U.S. nuclear exports to Iran. Taken together, these episodes map the rise of the fall of Iran's Cold War partnership with the United States during the decade of superpower d?tente, Vietnam, and Watergate. This work of American diplomatic history, international relations, and Middle Eastern Studies provides critical historic background on Iran's ambitions for primacy in the Persian Gulf, its nuclear program, and what a US-Iran strategic partnership might look like in the future.

Stalin şi tentaţia imperialismului. Ideea mesianică în politica externă a Uniunii Sovietice (1924-1953) îşi propune să ofere o perspectivă nouă asupra factorilor determinanţi care au stat la baza deciziilor lui Stalin în sfera politicii externe. Rolul şi destinul Rusiei, ca putere mondială, au constituit un subiect de largă dezbatere atât în cercurile politice, cât şi culturale încă de la începutul secolului al XIX-lea, odată cu formarea intelighenţiei ruse, cea care a teoretizat ideea poporului rus. Credinţa în natura unică a poporului rus, drept popor ales de Dumnezeu pentru a fi înzestrat cu misiunea întâietăţii, dar şi a sacrificiului, a reprezentat o constantă în gândirea rusă. Autoarea încearcă să afle în ce măsură această idee mesianică, moştenire a Rusiei ţariste, a fost un element fundamental în construirea strategiei de politică externă a Uniunii Sovietice de către Iosif V. Stalin, de la preluarea frâielor Kremlinului şi până la moartea sa, în martie 1953. A urmărit conducătorul sovietic, sub influenţa ideii ruse, crearea unui Imperiu sovietic unic sau deciziile sale au reprezentat doar manifestarea pragmatismului unui om de stat condus de obsesia nesiguranţei? Aşadar, a fost Stalin atins de tentaţia imperialismului?

"Based on new archival evidence, this book examines Soviet empire building in Hungary and the American response to it." "The book analyzes why, given all its idealism and power, the U.S. failed even in its minimal aims concerning the states of Eastern Europe. Eventually both the United States and the Soviet Union pursued power politics: the Soviets in a naked form, the U.S. subtly, but both with little regard for the fate of Hungarians."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Gen. Andrew J. Goodpaster was one of the leading soldier-scholars of his time. He was one of the key figures during the Cold War - one who stood among the dominant American military and political personalities of those times. Goodpaster served Gen. Dwight Eisenhower in establishing the international military component of NATO and then served as his Staff Secretary. He achieved the highest international military command assignment possible – as NATO’s Supreme Allied Commander, Europe and restored the integrity of West Point during a major ethical crisis. Upon his final retirement and for over a quarter-century thereafter, he was actively involved both the formal and informal world of Washington policy-making, making his mark repeatedly as a respected participant.
