Throughout the tumult of the 1960s, one man-- Dean Rusk--served as Secretary of State in both the Kennedy and Johnson administrations. As the principal architect of American foreign policy from 1961 to 1969, he defined our country's stance toward Soviet aggression--and became the chief spokesman for our involvement in Vietnam. Reviled by antiwar protesters, and often maligned by historians of the period, Rusk has remained adamantly silent about his public career-- the only major figure of the Kennedy and Johnson administrations not to have written his memoirs. Now after years of almost daily contact with Rusk, extensive interviews with former top government officials, and access to hundreds of private letters and documents, Thomas J. Schoenbaum has written a groundbreaking book that is as close as we will ever come to Rusk's own story. Waging Peace and War is both the definitive account of the career of one of America's most remarkable statesmen and a revealing new look at our country's most significant foreign-policy decisions, from the Korean War to the conflict in Vietnam.
