The latest volume in this series examines an unusually controversial phase of American foreign policy. An almost unmanageable mass of factual data has been reduced to coherence and presented in a manner that illuminates many of the more critical issues in contemporary international affairs. The author appears somewhat unhappy about the military emphasis in recent American policy, which he contrasts with the apparent Soviet expectation of major economic, social and political difficulties within the non-Communist world.
