The Cycles of American History

By Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr
Houghton Mifflin, 1986
512 pp. $22.95

This book, combining revisions of previously published and often famous essays with some new material, displays the author at his best: trenchant, erudite, crisp. All the essays have some implications for foreign policy, but see especially the masterful survey of the tradition of human rights and the discussions of American imperialism and the cold war.
