What People are Saying About This

Adam Hochschild

Very few historians have paid attention to how American foundations and private donors have helped shape U.S. foreign policy and public opinion on international issues. But they will have to do so after reading John Tirman's book. Tirman's examination of the role philanthropy played in the arms control and intervention debates of the 1980s and 90s is subtle and fascinating—all the more because he was an insider in the process himself. And he has added some new, previously unsung visionaries to the cast of characters who deserve credit for helping to end the madness of the Cold War.
