The Foreign Affairs Reader
The Foreign Affairs Reader
By Hamilton Fish Armstrong
Harper (for the Council on Foreign Relations), 1947, 492 pp

Representative essays chosen from FOREIGN AFFAIRS during its first 25 years, designed to show how ideas and events unfolded in the critical era between the two wars and down to the present. The selection runs from our own Root, Baker, Willkie and Stimson to eminent Europeans like Thomas G. Masaryk, Jules Cambon, Lord Grey, and Russian writers like Bukharin, Radek and Trotsky. The volume closes with the article by "X" on "The Sources of Soviet Conduct," recently commented upon so widely, and Croce's famous essay "On Liberty." The contributions, 29 in number, are linked together with brief historical notes, giving each its setting and providing a useful running commentary on the development of world events throughout the period.
