Sixty years ago Secretary of State George Marshall revolutionized American foreign policy when he called on the United States to come to the aid of war-torn Europe. In Winning the Peace, historian Nicolaus Mills explores how the Marshall Plan, with its combination of diplomacy and pragmatism, provides us with valuable lessons from the past about what America can and cannot do as a superpower.
Mills_reminds readers that the U.S. resisted the urge to tell European leaders how things would be, understanding that regional problems required regional solutions. The lessons of the Marshall Plan are key to solving tomorrow’s global challenges.
