Beschreibung:
A landmark collection, spanning ninety years of U.S. history, of the never-before-published diaries of George F. Kennan, America's most famous diplomat.
On a hot July afternoon in 1953, George F. Kennan descended the steps of the State Department building as a newly retired man. His career had been tumultuous: early postings in eastern Europe followed by Berlin in 1940-41 and Moscow in the last year of World War II. In 1946, the forty-two-year-old Kennan authored the "Long Telegram," a 5,500-word indictment of the Kremlin that became mandatory reading in Washington. A year later, in an article in Foreign Affairs, he outlined "containment," America's guiding strategy in the Cold War. Yet what should have been the pinnacle of his career-an ambassadorship in Moscow in 1952-was sabotaged by Kennan himself, deeply frustrated at his failure to ease the Cold War that he had helped launch.
