KIRKUS REVIEW

A reappraisal of Dean Acheson as Secretary of State that reaffirms the author's belief that the cabinet officer's abilities, integrity and intelligence are ample for the second most important job in the nation which he holds. Acheson is presented as that rare ort of man who can take the long view of events, see the world as an integrated problem in which no one nation or even area is all important. The chapters cover the overlapping rises that have occurred since Acheson took office- the problem of troops in Europe, Germany, Spain, the Southern Flank, the Far East both before and after Korea, the McCarthy charges of disloyalty in the State Department, etc., and Dean Acheson comes through in this ook with shining colors untarnished by the charges levelled in certain quarters. A erious, annotated study of a critical, controversial situation and figure, which persuades it defends.
