The United States in World Affairs, 1949
The United States in World Affairs, 1949
By Richard P. Stebbins
Harper (for the Council on Foreign Relations), 1950, 572 pp

The latest volume in the Council's annual series reviewing American foreign relations around the world is both scholarly and readable. Concerned with events from the signature of the North Atlantic Treaty to the close of 1949, the narrative also covers the origins and development of the Point Four program and pursues the domestic controversy over Far Eastern policy into the early weeks of 1950. Considerable emphasis is placed on United Nations affairs. George F. Kennan contributes a timely and important introduction.
