Theme: As the war in Vietnam finally came to a disastrous conclusion, the United States struggled to create a more stable international climate. Détente with the two communist powers temporarily reduced Cold War tensions, but trouble in the Middle East threatened Americas energy supplies and economic stability.

Theme: Weakened by political difficulties of their own and others making, the administrations of the 1970s had trouble coping with Americas growing economic problems.
