Beschreibung

Drawing upon a wealth of original research, David Mayers' fascinating life of George Kennan examines his participation in the process of making foreign policy and interprets his political and philosophical development within a historical framework. He presents an engaging and lucid account of Kennan's training, his rise to prominence during the late 1940s and his policy failures, and his later role as critic of America's external policy, advocate of detente with the Soviet Union, and proponent of nuclear arms limitation. Mayers also explores Kennan's complicated relationships with such prominent political figures and analysts of his time as Dean Acheson, John Foster Dulles, and Walter Lippmann.

David Mayers is Associate Professor of Political Science at Boston University. He is the author of Cracking the Monolith: U.S. Policy Against the Sino-Soviet Alliance, 1945-55 and co-editor of Reevaluating Eisenhower: American Foreign Policy in the 1950s.



Klappentext

One of a select group of American foreign service officers to receive specialized training on the Soviet Union in the late 1920s and early 1930s, George Frost Kennan eventually became the American government's chief expert on Soviet affairs during the height of the Cold War. Drawing upon a wealth of original research, David Mayers' fascinating life of George Kennan examines his high-level participation in foreign policy-making and interprets his political and philosophical development within a historical framework. Mayers presents an engaging and lucid account of Kennan's training; his rise to prominence during the late 1940s and his policy failures; and his later roles as critic of America's external policy, advocate of détente with the Soviet Union, and proponent of nuclear arms limitation. Mayers also explores Kennan's complicated relationships with such important political figures and analysts as Dean Acheson, John Foster Dulles, and Walter Lippmann.
