Marshall Plan Days

By Charles P. Kindleberger
Allen & Unwin, 1987
273 pp. $34.95

Of the 14 papers written over 40 years, only a few date from the time Professor Kindleberger worked on the Marshall Plan for the State Department, but this valuable collection is fortified by recollections, research and some interesting letters the author wrote from Europe in the 1940s. Naturally one becomes rather familiar with some of the author's ideas and turns of phrase, but the lively introductory notes to each paper not only provide a setting but relate it to others. There are sharp rebuttals of some latter-day criticism of the Marshall Plan, but Kindleberger is not one to indulge in nostalgia or claim that everything was done in the best of all possible ways.
