Editorial Reviews

History: Reviews of New Books
All historians of modern America will want to own this volume.
Choice
A superior study for the expert as well as the novice. Highly recommended for all libraries.

McCoy deftly puts the reader right in the middle of the rapidly unfolding drama, from the decision to use the atomic bomb and the policies adopted for postwar economic reconversion, to the beginnings of the Cold War and the conflict in Korea.
