The Cuban Missile Crisis and the Limits of Crisis Management
Richard M. Pious challenges the belief that President John Kennedy was able to manage the Cuban Missile Crisis and end it on favorable terms. He examines the records of the deliberations of the ExComm and Politburo in the midst of the Cuban Missile Crisis and concludes that only when Kennedy and Nikita Khrushchev abandoned gamesmanship and turned to select negotiations and bargaining were the two leaders able to defuse the crisis.
