Firing Line with William F. Buckley Jr. “The Revisionist Historians”

Firing Line Videos, Hoover Institution, taped on January 23, 1974, uploaded to YouTube on March 2, 2015.

Guest: Dean Rusk


Former Secretary of State Dean Rusk, reviled at the time by the elite press and revisionist historians, was exiled, as his Ivy League friends saw it, to the wilds of the University of Georgia. A rich discussion starting with the beginnings of the Cold War, moving to the early days of the Kennedy Administration, and on to the current state of the American university campus.
