The Necessity for Choice

By Henry A. Kissinger
Harper, 1961
370 pp. $5.50

Arguing that the United States "cannot afford another decline like that which has characterized the past decade and a half," Mr. Kissinger examines a number of the tougher problems confronting American foreign policy, weighs the alternatives and offers his own prescription. The topics covered include the strategy of deterrence, the modes of limited war--including some revision of his own earlier views in "Nuclear Weapons and Foreign Policy"--and U.S.-European relations, negotiation and arms control. On the whole he feels that there has been little creativity in facing or even defining these intractable issues.
