Decisions at Yalta: An Appraisal of Summit Diplomacy

By Russell D. Buhite
Scholarly Resources, 1986
156 pp. $25.00

This brief study, appearing fortuitously amid the debate over Reykjavik, deplores the Soviet-American summit conference as an institution and the assumption that much good can come of seeking détente. The author, a diplomatic historian, contends that the American national interest was in no way served and in many ways injured by Roosevelt's participation in and decisions at Yalta. This is vintage historical neoconservatism-less strident than the criticism from the right in the 1940s, but tending toward similar conclusions.
