From Library Journal:

Reluctant to write his memoirs, Rusk, Secretary of State under Presidents Kennedy and Johnson, was persuaded by son Richard to put his life on tape. That extensive oral history forms the basis of this rich personal account, with additional material supplied by Richard. Rusk's public life began as an aide to General Joseph W. Stillwell in China and continued in the State Department under George Marshall and Dean Acheson. While the bulk of this book deals with Rusk's most visible period during the 1960s, there are also moving descriptions of his early life. Readers will find fresh insights into major events and personalities and will gain a much deeper understanding of this underrated man and his place in American diplomatic his tory. Recommended.

From Publishers Weekly:

In this volume, transcribed from tapes he made for his son, Rusk reminisces about his family, his WW II military service and his various government posts and offers his opinions on education and the Vietnam era. PW called this "engrossing, enlightening. . . . An unreconstructed hawk, Rusk is blunt about what he considers the correctness of U.S. intervention in Southeast Asia." Photos.
