In and Out of the Ivory Tower: The Autobiography of William L. Langer

By William L. Langer

Neale Watson, 1978, 264 pp.

Straightforward, relaxed memoirs by the prodigiously industrious and learned Harvard diplomatic historian and head of the Research and Analysis Section of OSS, who died in December 1977. Fine reading for anyone interested in academic life and in the connections between scholarship and policy in foreign affairs.
