This third volume in the post-war series covers twelve months from the Spring of 1948 to the Spring of 1949 -- an issue of the Council of Foreign Affairs, and is valuable as contemporary record of American foreign policy. These were critical months of the ""cold war""- months which saw important developments in the European recovery program, in the Palestine situation, in Benelux, United Nations, in the Far East. The Bogota Conference belongs here -- the months of the Berlin blockade and the air lift, both factors in larger issues. This is not an opinion book, but a record of events, leaning toward topical rather than analytical treatment. An annual important for reference.
