Gerald Ford and the Challenges of the 1970s

Yanek Mieczkowski

University Press of Kentucky

This chapter examines the internationalism of former U.S. President Gerald Ford. Ford wanted to reinvigorate American internationalism, but he felt bound by the same constraints that affected his handling of economic and energy policies. Congress resisted presidential authority and was eager to shape the country's diplomacy itself, and the people were weary of bleak international news and reluctant to rally behind the White House. In his travels abroad and through his personal diplomacy, Ford resisted a trend toward isolationism and made no attempts to introduce bold new doctrines in foreign policy.
