  • Surprisingly, there is little work on Brzezinski. Only recently scholars have begun reevaluating his academic and political contributions. The works he published from 1956 to 1976 have not been consecutively analyzed in decades. With the fall of the Iron Curtain, it is time scholars reopen Brzezinski’s books and reexamine his ideas. The studies of Brzezinski’s term as National Security Adviser from 1977 to 1981 are also lacking. Many fail to look beyond the hyperbolic opinions of his fans and opponents during the administration. It is time to approach Brzezinski’s term in the White House and seriously analyze how his actions effected American foreign policy during the Cold War and what consequences our nation is still dealing with.
