This study, conducted in January 1975, explored the views on foreign affairs of members of the United States House of Representatives. Three main areas were investigated: attitudes toward the United Nations, attitudes toward foreign aid, and attitudes toward detente with the Soviet Union. A total of 309 out of 435 House members offices responded, and in many cases questions were answered on behalf of the House members by their chief legislative assistants for foreign affairs.
