Problems and Prospects: Papers on Presidential Transitions in Foreign Policy

Volume 2

Kenneth W. Thompson

This volume emanated from the report of a 16-member commission formed by the White Burkett Miller Center to study and make recommendations on presidential transitions. The theme of this volume is problems and prospects. Part I throws the spotlight on problems: Dean Rusk on the Bay of Pigs; Walter Cronkite on mass media; William Bundy on transition problems; and Phillip W. Buchen on problems of unscheduled transition. Part II turns to prospects: John Macy on prospects for personnel in transitions; Clark Mollenhoff on government and politics through the eyes of an investigative reporter; and David Newsom on important proposals for the future. Co-published with the Miller Center of Public Affairs. « less more »
