A Flattering Portrait of a Foreign Policy Giant
James Chace's detailed history of the life of our most influential Secretary of State in the modern era is a great overview of American foreign policy in the second half of the 20th Century. Although generally treating its subject in a positive light, Chace's book points out instances where history shows that Acheson erred. Moreover, the book gives the reader glimpses of Acheson's interactions with the major figures of American foreign policy from the 1940's through the 1960's. Although the book is densely packed with details, as a primer and overview of the foreign policy challenges of the cold war, the book excels.Was this review helpful?
