Sinopsis:

Book by Dunn Dennis J

Críticas:

"Dunn has mastered the challenge of connecting each ambassador's experiences with the larger narrative of Roosevelt's policies toward the Soviet Union and the flow of events in Asia and Europe." -- American Historical Review "Roosevelt's admirers may be shocked, but Dunn has written a well-researched, fascinating history of Soviet-American relations at the highest level." -- Virginia Quarterly Review "Demolishes some of the conventional explanations for why Franklin Roosevelt accepted arrangements at Yalta that doomed Poland and the rest of Eastern Europe to Stalinist domination.... A brilliant contribution to understanding what happened." -- Robert K. German, Austin Council on Foreign Affairs "Descriptions of the ambassadors personalities and ideologies are insightful portrayals of the upper-crust types who served as America's top diplomats in Moscow, and they personalize what can often be a dry topic." -- Publishers Weekly "Dunn treats FDR's personal diplomacy harshly, yet for this reason his book can serve as a starting point for another round of reassessments of FDR and his presidency. Recommended." -- Library Journal "A superbly written, well-researched book that examines in-depth the US-Soviet relationship in the years preceding and during World War II through the eyes of the US's first ambassadors to Moscow." -- Journal of Slavic Military Studies "An excellent book.... Will remain a diplomatic classic for years if not decades to come." -- Journal of Slavic Military Studies "A valuable contribution for the study of a complex and difficult period in the relationship of the greatest powers during the crucial years 1933-1945." -- John Lukacs "Dunn provides vivid intellectual-political portraits of the five ambassadors who represented President Franklin Roosevelt in Embassy Moscow." -- International History Review "Dunn has drawn upon Soviet, British, and American sources to produce a well-written account of Roosevelt's policies toward the Soviet Union and his relationships with U.S. diplomatic envoys in Moscow." -- H-Net Reviews "What is sure to excite discussion is his assertion that Roosevelt, by separating democracy from morality, misunderstood and propped up Stalinist Russian and ironically contributed to the postponement of its fall until the 1990's." -- Choice "The first study to incorporate the history of all the ambassadors and aides who succeeded William C. Bullitt, the first U.S. ambassador to the Soviet Union." -- Canadian Review of American Studies "Demonstrates clearly... the struggle between FDR and the state department concerning divergent interpretations of Stalin, Stalinism, and the Soviet Union" -- Amos Perlmutter, editor, Journal of Strategic Studies
