The Origins of the Marshall Plan

By John Gimbel
Stanford University Press, 1976
344 pp. $15.00

The best historical discussion of the Marshall Plan yet to appear. The author has an original thesis: the Plan flowed from an American effort to circumvent French, not Russian, obstruction to German economic revival. Excellent on the bureaucratic antagonisms within the U.S. government.
