Featured Book Reviews


Harry & Arthur: Truman, Vandenberg, and the Partnership that Created the Free World.By Lawrence J. Haas

Review by John M. Handley

"Fortunately for the Truman legacy, White House staffers eventually convinced Truman of the importance of bringing Vandenberg along at every step of the negotiations. Thus credit for the final realization of US support and Congressional funding for the new UN, for the Truman doctrine, for the Marshall Plan, and for the establishment of NATO goes in large part to Arthur Vandenberg."


The Doctor and the Saint: Caste, Race, and "The Annihilation of Caste". By Arundhati Roy

Review by Jon P. Dorschner

"This is the second book by Arundhati Roy I have reviewed for American Diplomacy. Roy is a radical political thinker who embraces a combative opposition to the status quo, while rejecting (for the most part) Marxist ideology. In this regard, she parallels Noam Chomsky. The two of them are close personal friends and work together on many causes."

India's Wars by Jon P. Dorschner
