Why Did Detente Fail?


Detente failed because towards the late 1970s and early 1980s, the West grew embittered with détente, because the people (especially Americans) felt that the policy failed to prevent the Soviet from attacking the Third World (e.g. Invasion of Afghanistan) and the policy was taking a huge toll on the economies of the West. America’s military support to Pakistan affected the economy back home and this led to the election of Ronald Reagan as opposed to Jimmy Carter.
