Description


Martin Thornton, "Times of Heroism, Times of Terror: American Presidents and the Cold War"
Publisher: Praeger Publishers | 2005 | ISBN 0275980014 | DJVU | 190 pages | 1.1 MB

Understanding foreign policy has become more essential than ever in today's integrated world. How the United States acts as a nation has far-reaching consequences, especially in times of war. To better understand America's stance on foreign policy today, it is helpful to analyze how U.S. presidents and leaders have acted in the past, particularly throughout the 20th century. Thornton argues that descriptions or the classification of presidents have been misleading since presidents are often reacting to unique foreign policy crises and at times may have, through good diplomacy, forestalled serious crises from developing. Basing his insights on numerous first-hand sources such as handwritten notes and memos taken during meetings of heads-of-state, he portrays the presidents as very human individuals struggling with difficult questions and the responsibilities only men of their position have to deal with. Topics examined in the book include but are not limited to: * Events leading up to the Cold War * 1946-1952: Truman and Containment * 1953-1960; Eisenhower and Military Challenge 1961-1963: JFK and Foreign Policy Leadership * 1963-1968: Johnson and War Home and Abroad * 1969-1974: Nixon, Kissinger, and the Search for Peace * 1974-1976: Gerald R. Ford * 1977-1980: Jimmy Carter * 1981-1988: Ronald Reagan * 1989-1991: George H. Bush and the End of the War
This text stands out due to its readability and its comprehensiveness. The average reader will have no problem getting a clear grasp of the topic at hand. The college professor of U.S. or international history, political science, international studies, or even ethicist who wishes to engage students in their reading assignments would do well to pick up this text.
