Power and Diplomacy. Dean Acheson.
Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 1958. Presumed First Edition/First Printing. Hardcover. 22 cm, 137 pages. Name in ink on flyleaf. Signed by the author. 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. SIGNED.

The Russian Memoirs of John Quincy Adams; His Diary from 1809 to 1815 [Originally published in Volume II of Memoirs of John Quincy Adams]. John Quincy Adams, Charles Francis Adams.
New York: Arno Press & The New York Times, 1970. Presumed First Edition [Stated], First Printing thus. Hardcover. [8], 602, [2] pages. Occasional footnotes. Cover has slight wear and soiling. Pages 181-190 has minor edge roughness. 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.

Letters from a Distinguished American; Twelve Essays by John Adams on American Foreign Policy, 1780. John Adams, comp. and, James H. Hutson.
Washington, DC: U. S. Government Printing Office, 1978. Presumed First Edition, First printing [thus]. 24 cm, 66 pages. , illus., footnotes. The letters published in this volume were discovered in the course of sampling the Library of Congress's collections of foreign newspapers published during the American Revolution to ascertain the value and the feasibility of a project to enlist the cooperation of librarians and archivists in several nations to bring these newspapers under bibliographic control and to make them more accessible to students of the Revolution. The importance of Adams's letters-- virtually unknown and never reprinted -- is a testimony to the untapped riches which exist in the foreign newspapers of the period. It was hoped that their publication would inspire efforts to collect and exploit these newspapers in a systematic manner. The editor supplied an essay describing the context in which Adams wrote his letters and exploring the conduit through whom they reached publication, the enigmatic Edmund Jenings. An appendix is devoted to an unknown chapter in the diplomacy of the American Revolution in which both Adams and Jenings were major participants. Adams's letters speak for themselves and are, therefore, attended with little annotation, except that which indicates how they were "recycled," that is, how Adams included in them materials which he had already used in other connections, a common practice of the busy statesmen and letter writers of the period.
