Summary
"Using a statistical analysis of the economic sources of support and opposition to the Truman administration's foreign policy and a historical account of the crucial period between the summer of 1949 and the winter of 1951, Fordham integrates the political struggle over NSC 68, the decision to intervene in the Korean War, and congressional debates over the Fair Deal, McCarthyism, and military spending. The Truman administration's policy was politically successful not only because it appealed to internationally oriented sectors of the U.S. economy, but also because it was linked to domestic policies favored by domestically oriented, labor-sensitive sectors that would otherwise have opposed it." "This interpretation of Cold War foreign policy will appeal to political scientists and historians concerned with the origins of the Cold War, American social welfare policy, McCarthyism, and the Korean War. The theoretical argument that Fordham advances will be of interest broadly to scholars of U.S. foreign policy, American politics, and international relations theory."--Jacket
