An important biography of one of the most dominant but least understood 20th-century American public figures. For almost a generation Rusk exerted significant influence over decisions of war and peace. Heretofore, historians have drawn a one-dimensional portrait of Rusk and his prosecution of the Vietnam conflict. This study emphasizes Rusk's influence on many other questions of national and international importance. While this work does not replace Warren I. Cohen's Dean Rusk ( LJ 1/1/81), it places Rusk's career in the context of the latest scholarship. An unbiased account of the secrets to Rusk's advancements as well as his foibles. Highly recommended to scholars and laypersons. Charles E. Kratz, Hofstra Univ. Lib., Hempstead, N.Y.
