Diplomacy for a Crowded World: An American Foreign Policy
Diplomacy for a Crowded World: An American Foreign Policy
By George W. Ball
Atlantic-Little, Brown, 1976, 356 pp

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.
