Turbulent Era
Turbulent Era
By Joseph C. Grew
Houghton, 1952, 2 pp.

This record of a 40-year career in the diplomatic service is based largely on Mr. Grew's diary and letters, edited by Walter Johnson, Professor of History at the University of Chicago. Valuable as a historical source, the sections of greatest current interest are Mr. Grew's review of the events leading to Pearl Harbor--he still believes the United States missed an opportunity for a peaceful settlement with Japan--and his work as Acting Secretary of State in 1945.
