Editorial Reviews

Taped on January 26, 1976. Mr. Moynihan had been chosen (by Secretary of State Kissinger) as our UN Ambassador not in spite of his outspokenness but precisely because he did not accept the detente-related dictum, "Do not offend." He had been busily offending all the right people ever since. A high-octane discussion of whether any good can come out of the talk shop on the East River. Moynihan: "You said in your book--and that was a good book, A Delegate's Odyssey--that debate is what that place can in fact do. What it can't do is
legislate; what it can't do is act; it has no such powers, and its pretension to those powers is what gets it in most trouble."
