Review quote

`the dozen essays in Kennedy's Quest for Victory are written so clearly, so informatively that they deserve the wide audience which is likely to be attracted to Beschloss ... The essays are remarkably free of overlap.'
Times Higher Education Supplement `No better introduction to American foreign relations in the 1960s exists than the Paterson volume.'
