Foreign Policy: the Next Phase
Foreign Policy: the Next Phase
By Thomas K. Finletter
Harper (for the Council on Foreign Relations), 1958, 208 pp

In this book--an elaboration of lectures given at the Council on Foreign Relations in the autumn of 1957--the former Secretary of the Air Force sketches the changes in the complex of international affairs in the last several years, and then discusses the terms of a new policy to meet the new conditions of Soviet power, European uncertainty and Asian unrest. While stressing the need to maintain our deterrent capabilities, the chief emphasis is upon a "forward strategy" in the areas of politics, economics and world opinion.
