John F. Kennedy Und 'Foreign Aid'
John F. Kennedy Und 'Foreign Aid'
By Yvonne Baumann
Franz Steiner, 1990, 460 pp

This thoroughgoing study of foreign aid in the Kennedy administration, which draws on archives as well as innumerable publications, earned the author a Ph.D. at the University of Zurich. Although the focus is on the new emphasis on economic development in those years, its conclusion is that, as in previous administrations, the Cold War was the main factor shaping American aid policy.
