Title: Nixon Administration National Security Council Oral History Roundtable
Document type: Oral history
Accessibility: Free Only
Repository: Brookings Institution. Foreign Policy Studies Program.
Collection: Nixon Administration National Security Council Oral History
Description: The Nixon administration brought far-reaching changes to the National Security Council. Building on a strong mandate from (and a strong policy relationship with) the President, National Security Assistant Henry A. Kissinger achieved operational policy dominance greater than any predecessor or successor. His role and methods generated enormous controversy. They were also tied to substantial policy achievements: an opening to China, arms control agreements with the Soviet Union, and eventually an historic, albeit flawed, Vietnam peace accord.
