Historical Dictionary of the Nixon-Ford Era Hardback
Part of the Historical Dictionaries of U.S. Politics and Political Eras series
The Nixon-Ford Era witnessed one of the most controversial presidential eras, yet despite all of the turmoil, progress was made.
The Vietnam War eventually wound down, the Cold War went through a phase of detente, relations were established with China, civil rights progressed, the situation of African Americans and Native Americans improved, and Women's Liberation altered the status of half of the population.
The Historical Dictionary of the Nixon-Ford Era relates these events and provides extensive political, economic, and social background on this era through a detailed chronology, an introduction, appendixes, a bibliography, and several hundred cross-referenced dictionary entries on important persons, events, institutions, policies, and issues.
