A Worthy Pulitzer Winner

by Bill M on Oct 17, 2013

Kennan, the author of the US containment policy towards the Soviets, gives an excellent, detailed account of American diplomacy towards the new Russian rulers from the Bolshevik revolution to their inept (and to the Americans unwanted) withdrawal from the first world war. Wilson had various representatives in Leningrad at the time, although the US had not recognized the new government. The interactions of various Americans, with differing attitudes towards the new state, and the Russians, who disdained the US while exploiting its assistance, is well worth reading about.
