Abstract:

Examines the major political changes in the U.S. capital in the 15 years after the Vietnam War (in particular, the way power is acquired and used on an individual rather than group basis). Documents methods for getting and keeping power in Congress, the Presidency, the Pentagon, embassies and the major lobbying groups. Major political figures are interviewed as well as less well-known persons who quietly protect the public interest. They contend that new talents and techniques are needed if the American system is to continue to work effectively.
