Description

This book draws vivid sketches of men and moments of the last half century adding some sober second thoughts. Futwaengler, the famous conductor; Herman Kahn, thinking unthinkable thermonuclear war; Karl N. Llewellyn, the great American jurist; Matsuoka, the foreign minister of Japan in 1941; Siepi, the great Don Giovanni of our centuryothese and others stand in the spotlight. Three major themes weave the texture of this work: twentieth-century geopolitics transitioning into the aerospace age; the United States before, during, and after the cold war; and the world of rival internationals, red (Communism) and black (Catholicism).
