The United States in World Affairs, 1958

By Richard P. Stebbins
Harper (for the Council on Foreign Relations), 1959
479 pp. $6.00

An astonishingly prompt and comprehensive survey of the international history of 1958, composed with the same skill that has characterized the earlier volumes in this series. The crises in the Middle East, the Taiwan Strait, and Germany, and the growing East-West competition in outer space provide the highlights of the 1958 narrative, which includes such late developments as Fidel Castro's victory in Cuba and the "Project Argus" experiments disclosed in March of this year.
