Discussion

The 1970s and 1980s brought remarkable changes for the Untied States.  The Cold War between the US and its allies versus the Soviet Union and  its allies/clients was still the dominant international issue. China was  also going to start emerging as a major world power. Nixon was dealing  with Vietnam and then Watergate—one of the pivotal scandals of modern  history. Reagan would bring a new national spirit, and he would tackle  economic problems by deregulation and moderating taxes—and he would be  dealing with a very new type of Soviet leadership.
