This is an analysis by Richard Nixon as commentator on world affairs, arguing that Soviet aims have not changed under Gorbachev and he presents his view of what future Western strategy should be. He also examines the future prospects of Western Europe, Japan, China and the Third World, detailing how the West can best be positioned to take on the challenges of the 21st century. His central concern is to ensure that the position from Gorbachev's Soviet Union is not misread. He views the old objectives of the Soviets as still in place - increased territorial control with Central America and the Persian Gulf, "the jugular of the West" as prime targets and their determination to stay dominant in nuclear capability despite the personal PR and comforting words of the peace and arms limitation.

Publishers Weekly, 1989-02-24 Some 15 years after his pardon, ex-President Nixon here pontificates on such issues as trade and military relations with the Soviet Union, protectionism vis-a-vis Japan and laser-based weapons in space. ``This hawkish blueprint of U.S. policy adds little of real substance to current debate,'' observed PW .

Publishers Weekly, 1988-04-01 Nixon, who as U.S. president opened diplomatic relations with China, now recommends negotiations with the Soviet Union to forge commercial treaties and reduce the risk of accidental war. He strongly opposes the adoption of protectionist trade measures against Japan. These positions may surprise some readers, but on other issues his hard-line views are more predictable, if one scrutinizes the sweeping Cold War rhetoric carefully. On nuclear armaments, he endorses Reagan's plan for laser-based weapons in space (``Star Wars'') and urges ``no first-strike vulnerability.'' He advocates continued support of Nicaragua's contras, covert CIA actions overseas, build-up of nuclear power, more U.S. cruise missiles in Europe, the establishment of U.S. air bases in Saudi Arabia. He blames Africa's poverty on the terrible governments there. This hawkish blueprint of U.S. policy adds little of real substance to current debate.
