Abstract:

This book is an attempt to define the major foreign policy and defense issues before America in the 1960s. Underlying the work is a sense of urgency, based on the author's conviction that in this revolutionary age the norm is the fact of upheaval and solutions, however comprehensive they seem, can never be regarded as permanent. The book starts from the premise that many of the patterns of policy which have served the nation since the end of World War II no longer apply. It seeks to assess the contemporary debate, and to indicate some possibilities for resolving the policy issues. The problems which have not been solved, nor properly judged, according to the author, range from national defense, NATO, Germany, arms control, negotiations, and colonialism, to the role of the intellectual in the field of foreign policy.
