These three books by American historians are impressive additions to the growing number of accounts of the early cold war based on intensive research in U.S. government archives. Buhite's account of Soviet-American relations in China, Korea and Japan is particularly noteworthy. Dobbs provides a thorough analysis of U.S. policy in Korea in the years leading up to the Korean War. And McMahon's book is a carefully documented study of U.S. policy toward Indonesia in the crucial years of post-World War II decolonialization.
