The Papers of Adlai E. Stevenson. Vol. VIII: Ambassador to the United Nations, 1961-1965

Edited by Walter Johnson

Little, Brown, 1979, 885 pp.

The concluding volume of a splendidly edited collection covers the sad final four years when Stevenson at the United Nations was trying with scant success to make U.S. foreign policy less abrasive and more sensitive to the Third World. The editor was unable to get Stevenson's dispatches as U.N. Ambassador declassified; they are thus excluded.
