Odd Man Out is a novel assessment of the motives and strategies of Harry Truman, Joseph Stalin, and Mao Zedong as they struggled to maneuver their countries into positions of advantage in the postwar world. Their successes and failures resulted in the catastrophic event that globalized the Cold War ---the Korean War. Based on recently released secret documents, Richard Thornton puts the reader inside the American, Soviet and Chinese decision-making processes during these earth-shaking events, events that have been misinterpreted for decades.

Review:

Praise for Richard C. Thornton's The Nixon-Kissinger Years: Reshaping America's Foreign Policy

"Like a Tom Clancy thriller or an Anthony Price mystery, intricate events unfold across great distances whether of geography or of the mind....The Nixon-Kissinger Years is a devastating commentary on the conduct of American foreign relations by Kissinger."

"Highly provocative, well-researched, and vigorously written."
