Acheson was the face of U. Acheson is quite emphatic that the serious errors of Chiang caused the loss of the Nationalists to Mao, even producing an extensive China White Paper and I do believe that history has vindicated that judgement. But that political argument, in my view, had negative consequences for the U. Despite his characterization by the GOP as soft on Chinese communism Acheson continued to be a staunch opponent of recognizing the Mao regime in Peking.
Acheson was highly sensitive to this charge, and took great pains to rebut it in the book. The diplomacy involved in the Korean conflict, the Soviet error of leaving the U.
No Acheson book can be complete without mentioning that he operated in the period that spawned Joseph McCarthy. Hyper-partisanship, and party hatred, did not start in But I do not want to see the Republican Party ride to political victory on the Four Horseman of Calumny-fear, ignorance, bigotry, and smear. Finally Acheson covers the policy adopted by the U. Acheson exhibits a dim view of French policy, but concedes that U. He exhibits, at this early date, some of the same failures of thought that characterized U.
Acheson tacitly admits the failure, but confesses that even as he wrote the Creation - Creation - My Present he could not justify the policies, but could not think of a workable Flautino Concerto In G Major, RV 443 Alla Quarta Bassa - Vivaldi* - Sébastien Marq, Ensemble Mathe. For those that think the study of history is a waste of time look at the early development of U.
Indochina policy, and how ignorance of history helped to foster one of the greatest foreign policy disasters in U. He was not the Secretary, but the U. He managed the Sorry For Laughing - Propaganda - A Secret Wish question, but was also Creation - Creation - My Present for concluding the peace treaty with Japan, helping to craft the post war order in that vital part of the world.
Acheson designed the process that effectively prevented the Soviets from derailing the treaty, or making changes that would have been inimical to U. His work there was outstanding, and is still being felt in a positive way today. This book is very long, and could have benefitted from the omission of many minor details.
Acheson is exceedingly deferential to President Truman but is not afraid to highlight areas of disagreement with his boss. He is less deferential to FDR, with whom he had some major areas of disagreement.
I read this book the old fashioned way as it was not available on Kindle. Despite the length I am happy to have read it, and recommend it to those interested in how the post World War II world order was established. Acheson was a major intellectual force in the development of that order, and certainly one of the most impactful Secretaries in U. Sep 30, Paula rated it it was ok. I had expected so much more from this book. Dean Acheson was such a pivotal part of this historic period, I expected real insight into the thoughts and reasons for the policies and actions of the presidential administrations of his time.
Instead, it read like a gossip columnist's diatribe. It was long on this person's petty behaviors and that person's partisan words. I wanted reasoned explanation, but got personality conflicts. Even at that it was not insightful. There was no explanation of why I had expected so much more from this book.
There was no explanation of why the personalities had Creation - Creation - My Present of opinion. It was just a he said, she said. Since I had no idea who most of those people were, it was meaningless to me. I'm not altogether certain that I would have enjoyed this book even if I did have the faintest idea of who all of those people were. The book just reads like someone's diary entries. Acheson does not even represent the reasons for his own point of view, yet that of anyone else around him.
The only reason I gave it two stars instead of one is that there were Never Forgive Me - Carnifex - Until I Feel Nothing, albeit very brief stories upon occasion.
But even these stories were mere glimpses into some quirky action on someone's part, rather than real insight into personality or policy. I wanted to love this, but it was just boring.
Oct 23, Joseph Millo rated it it was amazing. In Dean Acheson published this book as memoirs of his tenure in the State Department from to the end of the Truman presidency in My original intent in reading this page tome was to become better informed about a man whose name constantly pops up when reading about the first post-WWII decade of world affairs.
One of In Dean Acheson published this book as memoirs of his tenure in the State Department from to the end of the Truman presidency in One of the things I learned is the incredible amount of behind-the-scenes work that goes into negotiating international agreements — and the statesmanship required to win congressional approval. After reading the book, I was surprised and not surprised to discover it was After The Love Has Gone - Steps - Gold - Greatest Hits the Pulitzer Prize for History.
Jul 07, Michael Ting rated it really liked it. Acheson is a cheeky cynic and at some points, comical. Jun 10, Rick rated it really liked it. Former Secretary of State, in a detailed fashion, writes of his 12 years in the State Department. I learned a lot Creation - Creation - My Present reading this book. He has points of view, so those come through clearly; but his specific recollections of events and discussions are very helpful.
May 07, Will rated it really liked it. Acheson was such a pretentious spoon at times but in this book I find that almost endearing. At the very least he was better than the homophobic morons who filled the Senate during the Truman era. This book is very incredible. Very, very boring for the most part, but highly detailed. My primary interest in reading this book was Acheson's "insider" account of U.
The majority of this memoir dealt with other matters in great and lengthy detail, which I found difficult to struggle through even though Acheson's extremely clear writing style made the task easier than it might have been.
I have to say, Very, very boring for the most part, but highly detailed. I have to say, though, that "Present At The Creation" is not only indispensable for the study of the U. I am glad that I managed to get a copy of this Creation - Creation - My Presentbut I am just as glad that I got this copy gratis! Thanx again to John King Books, Detroit Jun 04, Laura rated it it was amazing.
Often I couldn't put this down. Working in a fortune fabless semiconductor company inI could identify with the wrangling to garner support, countering opposition without alienating, clarifying policy and all the beaurocratic wrangling.
This book provided a foundation in understanding Russian diplomacy and how even to this day they negotiate like 3 year olds who must check with Moscow before every little decisionthe formation of the EU NATO and the seeds of middle east insanity.
