Stephen Steinhardt, Attorney, WSU & MCC Professor & former Assistant Prosecutor
Come join Professor Steinhardt for a lively discussion of major events of the 70’s, including the opening of China, The Yom Kippur War, oil shortages, and conflicts in Central America and Afghanistan. While there were some successes in the early 70’s such as the SALT and other agreements with Russia, by the end of the decade, a new cold war and dangerous confrontation
ensued. Many high tension conflicts led to President Nixon and Secretary of State Henry Kissinger reaching out to Russia to ease international tensions.
