This is a 16 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on US Presidents - Nixon & Triangular Diplomacy. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Richard Nixon longed to be known for his expertise in Foreign Policy. Although occupied with the Vietnam War, Nixon also initiated several new trends in American diplomatic relations. Nixon believed that the communist world consisted of 2 rival powers — the Soviet Union and China.
Given the long history of animosity between those two nations, Nixon and his adviser Henry Kissinger, decided to exploit that rivalry to win advantages for the United States. That policy became known as “Triangular Diplomacy.”
Nixon may have been the only president who could have accomplished this arrangement. Anticommunism was raging in the United States. Americans would view with great suspicion any attempts to make peace with either the Soviet Union or China.
No one would challenge Nixon's anticommunist credentials, given his reputation as a staunch red-baiter in his early career. His overtures were chiefly accepted by the American public. Although the Cold War still burned hotly across the globe, the efforts of Nixon and Kissinger led to a temporary thaw.
