Title: Arms agreement : too little too late, or too much too soon?
Moderator: Krogh, Peter F. (Peter Frederic)
Person Interviewed: Albright, Madeleine; Allen, Richard V.; House, Karen Elliott
Abstract: Guests Madeleine Albright, Karen Elliott House and Richard Allen discuss the Cold War, is it finally over, and what does the end of the Cold War mean for American foreign policy?
Description: In 1989 the Cold War was entering its final years. As Mikhail Gorbachev continued his policies of liberalization and openness, and as tensions between the two superpowers began to wind down, many foreign policy observers in the United States asked themselves, is the Cold War finally over? For 40 years the cold war dominated the way Americans looked at the world, including its policies towards adversaries and allies, defense and arms control, trade and even domestic matters. If the Cold War is in fact over, how will the United States respond? Or if it has not yet ended, what can the United States do to administer the coup de grace and put an end to the dangerous ideological conflict that brought mankind to the brink of nuclear war on more than one occasion? In this episode future Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, Karen Elliott House of the Wall Street Journal, and Richard Allen, former National Security Advisor to President Reagan, discuss the de-escalation of the Cold War and what the end of the Cold War would mean for American foreign policy.
