Abstract

Policy h a d already gone to press. The Kahins' careful utilization of interviews, declassified British and American official sources, the private p a p e r s of Am- bassador H o w a r d P. Jones, memoirs, a n d even ship logs, helps fill in some of the blanks. Still, questions s u r r o u n d i n g the f u n d a m e n t a l issues of w h y a n d h o w the Eisenhower administration committed itself to so risky and ill-con- ceived an operation d e m a n d d e e p e r analysis. A l t h o u g h less t h a n definitive on U.S. policy, this book stands as a major achievement. Subversion as Foreign Policy sheds considerable light on an epi- sode of s i n g u l a r significance to m o d e r n Indonesia a n d to American Cold War foreign policy. It merits a w i d e readership. Robert J. McMahon University of Florida To H a v e a n
