Te mental maps of Stalin, Truman, Bevin, de Gaulle, Adenauer, Gomulka, Tito, Mao, Ho Chi Minh, Nehru, Nasser, Castro, Kennedy and Johnson, and Khrushchev provide fascinating insights into the opportunities and constraints felt by the leaders of the superpowers, the European states scarred by the horrors of two world wars, Communist China and the new states of the developing world.
