Fascinating read and insight into the times. This was the "new world order" before the one predicated by the collapse of the USSR. Acheson's goal is to persuade his readers to take the Soviet threat seriously, to concentrate power in American hands (given the limits, for example, of the UN), to maintain and strengthen alliances with free states, and to limit one's efforts to what is possible, rather than desirable.

John Quincy Adams (July 11, 1767 – February 23, 1848) was an American statesman who served as a diplomat, United States Senator, member of the House of Representatives, and the sixth President of the United States from 1825 to 1829. He was a member of the Federalist, Democratic-Republican, National Republican, and later the Anti-Masonic and Whig parties. He was the son of President John Adams and Abigail Adams. Adams shaped U.S. foreign policy using his ardently nationalist commitment. As a diplomat, Adams played an important role in negotiating key treaties, most notably the Treaty of Ghent, which ended the War of 1812. As Secretary of State, he negotiated with Britain over the United States' northern border with Canada, negotiated with Spain the annexation of Florida, and drafted the Monroe Doctrine. Historians generally concur that he was one of the greatest diplomats and secretaries of state in American history. As president he sought to modernize the American economy and promote education. Adams enacted a part of his agenda and paid off much of the national debt. He has been portrayed as an exemplar leader during an era of modernization, when new modes of communication spread messages of social reform, and improved transportation moved goods, money, and people more rapidly. After leaving office, he was elected as U.S. Representative from Massachusetts in 1830, serving for the last 17 years of his life with greater acclaim than he had achieved as president.
