This scholarly study, the result of patient research, is the most comprehensive single volume on the subject. The emphasis is naturally on the recent period -- half the book dealing with the last forty years. Professor Bemis does not hesitate to pronounce judgment on what he considers mistakes of American statesmanship. There are numerous well-designed maps.
