Abstract:

"In recent years, the Marshall Plan has been invoked on numerous occasions as a solution for problems domestic and foreign. This study aims to establish the relevance for contemporary postwar reconstruction projects of an experimental foreign policy conceived and executed back in the late 1940s and early 1950s. The monograph clarifies why and how the Marshall Plan was adopted, what its essential features were, and why it succeeded in western Europe, concluding that it had important and mutually reinforcing aspects-- political, psychological, and economics"--Page vii.
