Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Many military personnel have gone on to serve with great distinction as politicians and policy-makers. This tradition is especially well established in the US, where a military background is beneficial to those running for office and excellent preparation for working in the policy arena. It is, however, much more unusual to find a military man or woman who has been so thoroughly involved in policy and politics whilst still in uniform. Andrew J Goodpaster was such an individual: his life and work, described and analysed in a new biography by Robert S. Jordan, are noteworthy because of his role in the early stages of the Cold War and for the volume's analysis of a military man in a policy setting. Jordan draws on an impressive array of research, ranging from papers scattered in various presidential libraries across the US to interviews with Goodpaster's contemporaries, some of which are included in the book as highly readable appendices."
