The United States in Prague, 1945-1948
By Walter Ullmann
Columbia University Press, 1978, 216 pp.
Based on the documents now available on the American (but not on the Czechoslovak) side, this critical monograph covers U.S.-Czechoslovak relations from the liberation to the February coup. The author faults both Washington and Ambassador Steinhardt for inadequate understanding of the situation and lack of a long-range policy.
