Overview

The Ford presidency has often been viewed as a relatively insignificant period in American history--an interlude between the Nixon scandal and the difficult Carter years. Today, however, the brief and relatively quiet period of Ford's tenure is beginning to be viewed as an important time in the development of American politics and society.

This two-volume collection draws together essays commissioned for the Hofstra University Presidential Conference on Gerald R. Ford. The essays and transcripts of panel discussions, prepared by academic political scientists and historians, as well as members of the Ford administration, are divided into sections devoted to such issues as the pardon of Richard Nixon, the Rockefeller vice presidency, Middle East diplomacy, economic policy, and Ford's relations with the press. These volumes will be of particular interest to researchers involved with current American politics, social issues, and foreign affairs.
