During his presidency, John F. Kennedy concentrated on foreign policy. The President and his staff feared that communism had taken the offensive internationally and that the USA was in danger of losing the confrontation, particularly in the developing world. While President Johnson attempted to focus on domestic issues, foreign issues nevertheless loomed large. Consequently, the contributors to this volume argue, all aspects of American foreign policy during the 1960s must be viewed through the prism of the fight against communism. The chapters examine all major subjects and themes of this period in a way that provides new insight to students and general readers alike. In addition, each chapter contains brief notes and a bibliographic sketch.
