George F. Kennan: Cold War Iconoclast

Front Cover
Columbia University Press, 1989 - History - 381 pages
Kennan embodied the contradictions of Cold War anti-communism and a distrust of democracy, particularly as expressed in American anti- communist hysteria. Kennan later moved toward a "realist" perspective, shedding ideology and addressing himself to the practical issues of detente and arms control. This intellectual biography will serve general readers as well as students and scholars. Excellent notes and bibliography. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
