Overview

This book is an attempt to acquaint a new generation with a major dimension of the Kennedy legacy-his strategy for survival in the thermonuclear age. In some ways his admonition to look beyond containment resembles President Bush's recent emphasis on collective security and a "new world order", but JFK's "global alliance" seems more specific in several details which are developed in the editor's essay in the text. President Kennedy's proposed global alliance could provide the foundation for international political machinery to check tyranny, harbor ideological differences, curb environmental deterioration and secure the peace.

Author Biography: Joseph A. Bagnall is Assistant Dean Emeritus at the Santa Barbara City College. He is Chairperson of Social Science of the Army and Navy Academy and Adjunct Professor of History at Mira Costa College.
