many studies have examined John Foster Dulles' role as secretary of state during the Eisenhower Administration, few works have concentrated on his involvement with international organization. This book examines the evolution of Dulles' thought on international organization and his actual involvement with international organization from 1919 until his death in 1959. It reveals that Dulles' earlier experiences played an important role in shaping his policymaking, but that in the mid-1940s his conception of the international system underwent a major change that affected his later thought on international organization.

?. . . According to Arend, Dulle's experience at the United Nations with perceived Soviet obstructionism and his study of communism convinced him that co-operating with the Russians for peaceful change was impossible and that only collective security offered a reliable means of checking aggression and preventing war. . . . Arend has done a good job of research in locating Dulle's numerous books, articles, correspondence, and speeches on the subject of international organization. . . . Specialists in international organization may find this book a helpful source for Dulle's writings on the subject . . .?-International History Review
