Frederick, MD: University Publications of America, 1980
Dean Acheson was secretary of state from 1949 to 1953 under the Truman administration and exerted enormous influence on the direction of United States foreign policy during the period of the cold war. This collection is composed of transcripts and minutes of Acheson's conversations and meetings with numerous notable individuals such as President Truman, General George C. Marshall, Winston Churchill, and George F. Kennan. The issues covered reflect the major preoccupations of the postwar era: the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), the Korean War, foreign aid, the China question, the status of Israel, the formation of a European Defense Community, and the peace treaty with Japan.
The records are in chronological order. The guide provides dates, the names of the participants and very brief details of the conversations and meetings.
