Meeting the communist threat : Truman to Reagan

Thomas G. Paterson

Thomas Paterson offers a thorough review of post-war American attitudes towards totalitarianism, the causes of international conflict and foreign aid. He demonstrates how Truman acted upon these views, launched the containment doctrine and exercized American power both in Europe and Asia. A fresh look at Eisenhower's policy in the Middle East explains how the USA became a major player in that volatile region. He also presents a critique of Kennedy's foreign policy, before closing with a study of 1970s detente, CIA covert actions and Reagan's re-writing of the history of the Vietnam War.
