On Thursday, Geroge F. Kennan, the foremost thinker in early Cold War Policy, died at 101. I've read a few of his books, namely Fateful Alliance
, on the Franco-Russian Entete of the 1890's, and The Decline of Bismarck's European Order
, on the fall of the Dreikaiserbund, or Three Emporor's League (Germany, Austria-Hungary, and Russia). Both are on a topic most people don't care about. Few men have as much unintentional influence. Powerline
and Daniel Drezner
My thoughts and papers- updated irregularly.
These are only my opinoins, do not apply these to anyone or the U.S. Government, who I do not represent.
