We’re back with the second part of our discussion of
President Jimmy Carter and his times. On
this episode we cast our eye beyond the United States and discuss the
tumultuous foreign events that took place during the late 1970s in Asia, Africa,
and Latin America. Why is Jimmy Carter,
a president who brokered a historic peace agreement between Israel and Egypt,
remembered as a weak leader who presided over American decline on the world
We wrap up with a discussion of Carter’s post-presidency and
ask, is he the greatest of all the post-presidents?
Also, we should note that we recorded this podcast before
the sad news that Jimmy Carter has been diagnosed with cancer.
Thanks again for listening,
Mark and Malcolm
