The Rockets' Red Glare: War, Politics and the American Presidency

Richard J. Barnet, Author Holiday House $10.95 (480p) ISBN 978-0-671-73287-5
FDR's sensitivity to public opinion prior to Pearl Harbor and the Reagan administration's manipulation of it in terms of Nicaragua are cases in point in what PW called a ``probing, comprehensive survey of the role of public opinion in shaping U.S. foreign policy.'' Barnet warns that increasingly frantic efforts to win public approval are resulting in a depoliticized, shock-proof electorate. (Jan.)
