vii, 737 p. 23 cm. Illustrations. Footnotes At head of title: 94th Congress, 1st session. Joint Committee print. Includes bibliographical references. From an Obituary posted on line: Hans Heymann Jr., an economist who advised three U.S. presidents on the Soviet Union and the Vietnam War subjects he knew intimately as a key contributor to the top-secret history of the war known as the Pentagon Papers.Mr. Heymann began his career in 1950 as an analyst at the Rand Corp., a government contractor and think tank, and later served as a senior economics officer at the CIA and as a foreign policy adviser to the Ford, Carter and Reagan White Houses. Throughout his career, he specialized in the political environments and economies of Eastern Europe, the Soviet Union and the southeastern Asian countries of Thailand, Laos and Vietnam. He traveled widely for his assignments on arms transfers, civil and military aviation, and emerging technology. In the 1960s, he was tapped to work on a Defense Department research project that involved constructing a history of the Vietnam War dubbed the Pentagon Papers. The project s contributors included the late Richard Holbrooke, who decades later was the architect of the peace talks that ended the war in Bosnia, and Daniel Ellsberg, a Rand analyst who later leaked the Pentagon Papers to the press.In an interview, Leslie Gelb, a former Defense Department official who oversaw the project s day-to-day research, said he recruited Mr. Heymann for his wide-ranging expertise and scholarly integrity. As an expert on politics and economics, Mr. Heymann was responsible for fact-checking and editing many of the documents. The final product was a 2.5 million-word opus that examined the history of the U.S. decision-making process on Vietnam policy from 1945 to 1967. He retired from the CIA in 1984 and then lectured several more years for the Defense Department on international politics and economics." Good. Cover has some wear and soiling.
