The author was Undersecretary of State from 1961 to 1966. An articulate critic both in and outside of government, he here gives the foreign policies and diplomacy of Kissinger-Nixon-Ford a scrubbing-with razors. He is especially cutting in his treatment of summitry, unilateralism, egomania, and secrecy.
