eBook Seize the Moment: America's Challenge in a One-Superpower World download

by Richard Nixon


When I contrast both books I find Nixon focused on the world of finance and business and Kissenger focused on politics and power. Both have a common denominator, which is national security.

This is the former president's best book, because he deals with current, lively issues and is forthright in stating his position on each. He supports assistance to the former Soviet states and advocates an active role in eastern Europe and continuing engagement in western Europe

Just a non-content review. Rather, a thank you for the phenomenal condition of the book. No yellowing or odor of the pages. Front and back covers, as well as inside flaps are near perfect for a copyright 1992 book. Thank you.

In the past ten months I have learned so much about President Nixon. And I have to tell you I am liking the man (and his views) more and more. Yes, he made some egregious mistakes, but those should not sideline his opinions on a myriad of topics. More than twenty years have passed since "Seize the Moment" was first published, and yet many of its views are even more relevant today. My favorite quote from the book is the following: "Democratic socialism is a fashionable fraud. The only economic success stories in the developing world have come in countries whose leaders rejected the siren call of socialism tempting them to sacrifice opportunity and progress on the altar of equality." I may send a copy of this book to President Obama.

The more you read, the more you love Richard Nixon. What a shame that the Communists and the Socialists forced him to resign. If you do not read this book, than there is something wrong with your brain. If you are a teacher of children like myself, then you have a moral obligation to read it.

This book is a recipe for any current president as we look to establish peace not only around the world, but starting with the Middle East.

I got this book some time ago largely to just put on my bookshelf. After years sitting there, I read it because I have read a lot about Richard Nixon, but never anything by him. So sum up the book, it provides a prescription with statistical and analytical supporting argument for the way forward in world politics as the one remaining superpower. I did not realize what I was going to read about until I started reading and now must place it right next to Kissinger's book on the same subject. While both men are despised by many from the political left, I believe their worldviews are required reading to formulate balanced views. When I contrast both books I find Nixon focused on the world of finance and business and Kissenger focused on politics and power. Both have a common denominator, which is national security.

Nixon begins his worldviews much like Kissenger with Europe. But Nixon brings Russia into the mix much more prominently. In doing so he provides a lot of data to support his argument that Gorbechov was a half-wit when measured up for the job he undertook. He paints a picture with numeric data on economics to demonstrate Gorbechov's basic misunderstanding of fundamental economics. With regard to the oppressive measures he imposed upon his people and his neighbors while at the same time promoting glastnost, and prestroika shows the conflicted side of Gorbechov. Gorbechov's policy and actions are painted as a contradiction in terms on both economic and human liberties fronts. After reading the chapter on Russia, I came away with yet another example of the Nobel Peace prize being a Swedish lark.

Nixon saw the rest of Europe with a few minor concerns. He shares a fear of Empire Europe and a Eastern Block that would be subject to civil war. His fear of an EU albeit muted seems to have come to fruition just as he visualized. In my opinion, today's EU has many national conflicts that leave the idea of Fortress Europe unlikely and at the same time an EU, lead by the power hungry French and Germans, that is prone to tell the United States to go home. That is until some civil conflict requires us to return and help resolve the conflict militarily, as in Yugoslavia. Keep in mind the French and Germans have yet to prove themselves as a prime mover to mediate an international dispute to a peaceful end.

As Nixon moves to Asia, he leads with Japan. Here you discover his propensity to lead the world through economic policy and sound business practice. As opposed to the impression he left in his role of the inherited Viet Nam fiasco. He recognizes Japan's entanglement of government and business, but is clearly critical of those in the united States who seek protectionism. In moving to China you get a glimpse of Nixon's 1968 vision on China......please see the rest of my review including the Middle East by doing a keyword search using cigarroomofbooks.blog.

Read this book without the bias and blood lust that may anger you because of Nixon's unrelated flaws. In the arena of foreign relations the man was a genius. Today, with Russia and America tussling over Syria and the Middle East this book should be mandatory reading. Nixon foresaw the fall of the Soviet Union and the emergence of a harsh country where the population never learned how to be free. He predicted the rise of strongmen like Putin and emphasized the importance of making Russia a powerful ally. In other words, he urged future American leaders to stop fighting the Cold War against post-USSR Russia and help them become a powerful and peaceful ally. Obvious, American leaders after Reagan forgot this important message!

I think the previous review is a little bit unfair. Nixon was certainly an old man when he wrote the book but his mind was clear. Remember he had been there and he knew that it is not pretty in the international arena. Someone said he was a paranoid, but remember that these paranoids exist so that the normal people can be watching their mindless TV and buying their new cars. We don't want to believe that terrible things exist in this world when you are surrounded by the media. Actually it is everyone duty to fight against the "evils (many liberals nowadays considered that as a matter of opionions)." So, please give me a break when you have done nothing for your country but critized a respectable political view from a less-than-perfect politian (should be considered as flawless when compared to Mr. Clinton).

Historically useful but passe, the book is written with a friendly tone of Machiavellian paranoia. The constant emphasis on COMPETITION between superpowers is boyish as well as tedious.
