Kissinger and Acheson: The Secretary of State and the Cold War
Walter LaFeber reviews recent biographies of secretaries of state Dean Acheson and Henry Kissinger, noting that the two men were strikingly similar in their views of Europe, the southern hemispheres, and the American public. According to Lafeber, Acheson and Kissinger represented a break in the tradition of secretaries who had strong credentials in domestic politics, a tradition that now needs to be revived.
