Abstract:

American Cold War Strategy makes available to students, for the very first time, the complete text of NSC 68 - the crucial government memorandum that set American foreign policy for the Cold War. The document is accompanied by 22 commentaries - many of which were written specifically for this book by former U.S. government officials and academic experts Including five foreign scholars - that critically read the document from a wide spectrum of viewpoints. A general introduction by Professor May places NSC 68 in its historical context. May also provides an introductory essay to the commentaries, biographical Information on their authors, and questions to consider when reading the selections. In addition, the volume contains a chronology of the events of the Cold War, maps, a bibliography, and an index.
