A personal memoir by a member of Kissinger’s National Security Council staff, Hyland’s work addresses the internal and external factors which at the time of publication were preventing détente from becoming a reality.

His hope was to use those pacts as part of a step-by-step process that would create a broader formula for peace in that volatile region of the world. Scholars differ in their assessments of the Nixon–Kissinger approach to Middle East politics. But Watergate, which jeopardized the president’s leadership, made any hope of developing a more ambitious Middle East policy impossible. “Détente,” comments Tyler, “was giving way to Kissinger’s argument that Israel had to win so the Soviets would lose, which seemed a perversion of US national interest given the Soviet overtures to head off the crisis and to work cooperatively for a settlement of the Arab-Israeli conflict” (Tyler, 2009: 148).

He adds that although Jackson was undoubtedly motivated by his own political ambitions, tensions around these initiatives also reflected Kissinger’s inability to anticipate the strength of Congressional resistance to détente and his ability to dictate the direction of US foreign policy (381). ” It made Soviet access to increased trade with the United States, a key incentive for Soviet participation in détente, much more difficult for the Ford administration to secure (Zelizer, 2010: 253).
