From Library Journal: The Peace Corps is one of the most cheering and less appreciated success stories of the Cold War era. Happily, Rice is a scholar who understands its value. In this clear and comprehensive account of the Corps's formative years, he surveys the origins of the Peace Corps idea and the political and bureaucratic considerations that shaped its development. Emphasizing the inspiring lead of John F. Kennedy and the practical drive of its first director, Sargent Shriver, Rice details the early structure, rules, and training of the Corps, as well as the kind of young Americans who rallied to it. Unfortunately, this work does not take the story far beyond the Kennedy years. But Rice well realizes his first purpose. He has set down the definitive historical treatment of an enterprise that deserves fuller appreciation and support. Charles DeBenedetti, History Dept., Univ. of Toledo
