This document contains the May 7, 8, 14, 15, 21, and 22, and June 4, 1975 hearings titled "United States and the United Nations," held before the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. From the opening statement of John Sparkman: "We are meeting today to open a series of hearings on the United States and the United Nations. The purpose of these hearings is to put into perspective what our original hopes and aims were, how the UN has developed, and what our future policies and attitudes should be. I think it is fair to predict that recent world developments will focus greater attention on the United Nations. The question is whether the UN will be a constructive force in ameliorating difficult situations, such as in the Middle East and Southeast Asia, or whether it will be a destructive force in pitting the developing and third world nations against the developed, mostly Western countries, thereby further increasing the polarization evident at the U.N." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Bruno V. Bitker, Seyom Brown, William F. Buckley, Jr., William Sloane Coffin, Norman Cousins, Alexander Dallin, Richard A. Falk., Pauline Frederick, J.W. Fulbright, Buckminster Fuller, Richard N. Gardner, Arthur Goldberg, Henry Cabot Lodge, Daniel P. Moynihan, John A. Scall, Richard Scammon, Joseph Segel, Maxwell C. Stanley, Harold E. Stassen, Alvin Toffler, Abraham Yeselson, and Charles W. Yost.
