The United States in World Affairs, 1954
By Richard P. Stebbins
Harper (for the Council on Foreign Relations), 1956, 498 pp

The latest volume in the Council's series of annual surveys of foreign policy provides expert and dispassionate guidance through the complexities of the Indochina crisis, the struggle over the European Defense Community, and contemporaneous developments in the Mediterranean and the Middle East, in Latin America, and on the domestic front in Washington. The unifying theme is found in a transformation in the spirit of American foreign policy under the impact of the developing "nuclear stalemate" and the enunciation of President Eisenhower's "good partner" concept.
