Also by Barton Gellman:
Contending with Kennan: Toward a Philosophy of American Power (Praeger, 1984)
This was an exploration of the ideas of George F. Kennan, father of the “containment” doctrine and probably the most influential thinker on postwar U.S. foreign policy.
“…an astonishing tour de force … a carefully thought-through and beautifully written book about one of the most important Americans of the 20th century. It will be read and discussed by the foreign policy mandarinate but deserves also to be known to a wider public.” —The New York Times Book Review
