Wildavsky, Aaron and Edward Friedland and Paul Seabury. The Great Detente Disaster: Oil and the Decline of American Foreign Policy. New York: Basic Book, 1973.
“Multiple authorship rarely succeeds; haste and passion are the enemies of thought. But this book, written in obvious haste by three dissimilar authors, and evidently strongly felt, has one very great merit that easily outweighs its faults: the oil-price crisis caused by OPEC is treated throughout as a political crisis, not as a natural catastrophe or a dissociated economic phenomenon. Nothing is more revealing of the essential shallowness of American foreign policy under Secretary Kissinger’s regime than its failure to do likewise.”
From a review in Commentary Magazine, August 1975.
