DiEugenio on Recent JFK Foreign Policy Books

Post by Albert Rossi on Mon 05 May 2014, 1:15 pm

I'm posting here two reviews, the latter just appearing.

http://www.ctka.net/reviews/africans.html

http://www.ctka.net/2014_reviews/rakove.html

Just how different JFK and LBJ were in their attitude toward the non-aligned world
could not be clearer. 

Aside from the broader questions about relations with India, Egypt, Indonesia
and Congo, there are some other revealing points: 

- Johnson's closeness to John Foster Dulles
- The idealists vs realists in the JFK administration, and the peculiar position of
   Dean Rusk, who seemed to be following orders under JFK, never really invested
   in his policy of "engagement", and who was the lever who aided LBJ in
   prying himself loose from JFK's approach
-  The drastic change in the amount of foreign aid after JFK's death, and
    the way it was turned into practically an instrument of political extortion
    against the formerly non-aligned nations
-  The clear alienation of these nations caused by Johnson and their
    rapid anti-American and pro-Soviet turn thereafter.

We now have two major books on this theme supporting the same basic view
of how distinct JFK was from his predecessors and successors.

Keep it up, Jim!
