Abstract:

"Mark Kleinman juxtaposes the intellectual and professional lives of two key figures in post-World War II American history, Henry Wallace and Reinhold Niebuhr, to explore a fatal division in American liberal thinking about domestic politics and international relations during and after the war. This division over whether it was desirable to cooperate with the Soviet Union has had a profound impact on contemporary American domestic politics and foreign policy."--Jacket.
