    Introduction
    A lot of major events happened in the 1970's. Many of these events shaped our country into what it is today. Nixon's Foreign Policy with China helped end the war with the Vietnamese. The Iranian Revolution in 1979 was the start of the antagonistic relationship between the U.S and Iran countries. The Vietnam War, which we withdrew from in 1973, was the first war the United States had lost. Watergate in 1972-1974 put Nixon's administration in big trouble. 1970's music changed the way Rock and Roll was played. Also there were a lot of supreme court cases had changed the way how life is today, for example in the Oregon vs. Mitchell case the government tried to change the voting age for state elections, but the Supreme Court agreed with Oregon about how it was unfair that the government could choose for there state. The 1970's had a lot of important events that had made huge impact in history, and in this century today we still have influences from this decade, such as our fashion, and music.
    The Islamic Revolution
    The Islamic revolution in Iran was lead by Ayatollah (bishop) Ruhollah Khomeini in January 1978 and was made ruler of Iran in December 1979. Ayatollah Khomeini had managed to overthrow Shah (king) Mohammed Reza of Iran. The people of Iran then declared the country to be the Islamic Republic of Iran. Some to most of the protests during the revolution were violent. One of the main results of the revolution was the Iran-Iraq conflict. Once the revolution was over, a theocracy was created based upon the Guardianship of the Islamic Jurists.
    Richard M Nixon’s Foreign Policy Toward China, a Success or a Failure in 1972.
    Richard Nixon used the 'realpolitik" (actual politics) strategy to end the Vietnam War by using the pressure from the Soviet Union and China that forced the Vietnamese to negotiate. During the ongoing Cold War, the U.S had two major rivalries, the Soviet Union and China. The realpolitik would hopefully lead to important changes. By 1970 Richard M. Nixon had thought that it was in America’s interest to improve the U.S relations with both of the communist powers.China had lifted restrictions on trade and travel and he opened negotiations with China’s leaders. Nixon’s trip to China opened the eyes of the Soviets. There were people that believed that the Foreign Policy toward China was a success and some people thought that it was a failure. One reason why the policy showed success and growth was because by having relations with Chinese leaders it opened up the opportunity to have relations with the Soviets. Also a statement said by Henry Kissinger explained, “We had transformed our diplomacy. We had brought flexibility to our foreign policy... But we made a new departure and have traveled some distance down the road.” He explains that this policy has made its way and it has come a long way. Nixon and Kissinger had made a trip to Beijing, China in October of 1971, so that they could count on China to help balance and contain the U.S.S.R, this was to help the U.S pull ourselves out of the war without directly having to pull out . The other idea of Nixon’s and Kissinger’s policy being a failure came from the idea that the policy alienated important U.S allies it failed to implement a lasting period of less hostile relations (dénte).
    Oregon v. Mitchell
    In the 1970’s congress passed a law that all states needed to lower there voting age to 18 years old. Many states thought it was wrong, that the federal government could make rules for there state elections. The state of Oregon filed a suit against the federal government to overturn the new law. John Mitchell represented the United States federal government because he as the attorney general. Oregon argued that the United States government could set the age for voting for government but not for state elections. The Supreme Court agreed with Oregon that they should have the power to decide for their state. This was important because it showed that in America there is a balance of power between the states and the government. It also showed that the Supreme Court would stick up for the states if the United States Government tries to take to much power.
    70's TV
    During the 1970’s, the number of households with Televisions increased from 59 million to 75 million. Cable subscriptions also increased from 4.5 million to 14.1 million. Most of the TV shows in the 1970’s were sitcoms. Many of these sitcoms like "M*A*S*H" and "All in the Family" dealt with social issues like racism and Vietnam. Some of the famous actors from the 1960’s had their own TV shows. An example would be Mary Tyler Moore who was in the Dick Van Dyke show, and in the 1960’s got her own show, The Mary Tyler Moore Show. The 1970’s also saw the demise of the television westerns that were popular in the 1960’s. The most popular Shows in the 1970’s had spin-off shows; most of these shows weren’t as popular as the originals.

    Munich Massacre that occured in
    The Munich Massacre
    The Munich Massacre was a series of events that occurred during the 1972 summer Olympics in Munich, Germany. A team of Palestinian terrorists had traveled to Germany to capture and murder the Israeli athletes. During the situation (after they captured the hostages), they demanded the release of 234 prisoners in Israel. The following operation, operation wrath of god, was to find, track down, and kill the Palestinians involved in the massacre. In the hostage taking process, many of the athletes fought back. Few were able to escape. Later on, they had sent out the dead bodies of the athletes as warnings. The massacre was considered a failed rescue.

    - Were M. Nixon’s and Henry Kissinger’s (Secretary of State) Approaches to Foreign Policy Unified?
    In Richard Nixon’s administration of the foreign policy was dominated by two individuals, President Nixon and his national security adviser Henry Kissinger. Henry Kissinger's approach was towards international affairs, while Nixon’s was by the means of elimnating communism. Both elements of Nixon’s policy included both approaches to strategy. The strategy escalated the war in Vietnam because of the issue of communist expansion in Asia. The foreign policy also engaged in arms control and involved talks with the Soviet Union. Frequently during 1972 it was whether or not both approaches to the Foreign Policy were unified? One side agreeing that Nixon and Kissinger’s ideas came together and constructed a clear policy had stated that it is not easy to keep a foreign policy in democracy as it shifted because of peoples constant opinions and beliefs. An example of hard working people that had a strategy and plan for the U.S in the 1970’s was Henry Kissinger, who had thought of making a policy-making apparatus that would shield the foreign policy form the shifting public opinion and the policies showed guided principles that informed many people about what needed to be done. Kissinger and President Nixon demonstrated a unified team, that had a plan for their country. Lastly the other public opinion saying that they were not unified stated that Nixon didn’t even know Kissinger until he had met him at a small event, they said that the two couldn’t have been anymore opposite of each other, this is one example of how people felt about two different sides that they seemed to think didn’t mix well together.

    70's Music
    The 1970's saw a break up rock into sub-genres. Many different types of music came out of the Psychedelic music of the 1960's. These genres include Southern rock, hard rock/metal, Punk, and progressive rock. To many people, the 1970’s were the greatest decade for rock. Some of rock music’s greatest songs were written in the seventies. Songs like "Stairway to Heaven" and "American Pie" are still considered to be the greatest songs in rock. When people think of the 70’s they think Disco. Disco had many fans but it only lasted a few years. 1970’s music still has an impact on music today. Many bands like Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath inspired many generations of Heavy Metal Bands. Even though Disco lived a short time, it inspired many electronic and pop musicians, and is the forefather of today's club music.

    The Vietnam War
    One of the most important events that happened in the 1970's was the end of the Vietnam war. The Vietnam war was the first and only (so far) war that the United States had lost. the casualties reached approximately 58,000-59,000. In 1973, Nixon had ordered the Army to retreat from Vietnam after the Paris Peace Accords. Later on, Nixon was impeached and left office. There were a very large amount of protesters to the war, many of which we know as Hippies. By the Government, they were referred to as "Doves", or the people that oppose the war. The ones who supported were called "Hawks".

    2. Beginning in 1961, The Peace Corps is an organization sponsored by the U.S.
    government that sends young people to work as volunteers in developing countries. They would
    help develop countries in need by doing projects such as building schools and digging wells, for
    water. President Kennedy’s idea was to change the image of “ugly Americans” stereotypes and
    replacing it with the act of kindness by developing nations. After establishing the peace corps
    under executive order, Kennedy gave his brother, Sargent Shriver the position as director at a
    volunteers salary of one dollar a year. This Program helped motivate development and enhance
    international understanding. The peace corps can be judged as a modest success story in the
    history of American Foreign relations.

    The Beatles
    The Beatles were four young men that formed a rock and roll group. They were extremely popular in the 60’s. They are originally from Liverpool, England. The Beatles members are John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr. After being number one in 1963 in Great Britain they started to hit the U.S airwaves. U.S teens went crazy. When they started their U.S tour in 1964 teens were very excited. They were talented, young, and good-looking. They performed in suits and sharp black boots. They wore their hair long below their ears and bangs below their foreheads. Boys wanted to look like the Beatles. The two lead singers were John Lennon and Paul McCartney. Their songs were very upbeat. They had a number one song in 1964 “I want to hold your hand.” Crowds always mobbed them wherever they went.
