Princeton University professor Julian Zelizer taught a class on the growth of conservative influence over U.S. foreign policy in the 1970s. Following the Vietnam War, American presidents from Richard Nixon to Jimmy Carter favored an easing of relations, called “detente,” with the Soviet Union and communist China. The rising conservative movement, professor Zelizer explained, pushed for a more hawkish approach to communism, and ultimately found a champion in Ronald Reagan. He challenged the centrist policies of Republican incumbent Gerald Ford in the 1976 presidential campaign, and won the presidency in 1980 on a pro-defense, anti-communist platform. close
