MEDIA REVIEWS
?This book, edited by historian Schwab, utilizes papers prepared for a conference on US foreign policy issues. The opening essay, by Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr. ... argues approvingly that [Hans J.] Morgenthau's brand of realism' has triumphed over assaults from idealists, ' behavioralists, ' and revisionists.' Walter LaFeber's essay, summarizing US foreign policy from 1945 to 1980, contends that Cold War I gave way to Cold War II sometime around 1960, with Cold War II featuring new perceptions of the USSR and a growing emphasis on economic issues, but also a fractured American political consensus and weakened central government. Editor Schwab's own essay calls on the US to lead in forming an expanded worldwide version of NATO--to counter, contain, and reduce the Soviet challenge. Other contributors include Dankwart Rustow, William Diebold, John Herz, and Kenneth Thompson.?-Choice
