Foreign Affairs – Kennan Tribute

Foreign Affairs managing editor Gideon Rose e-mails to inform me that there’s a host of free material on their site honoring the late George F. Kennan. There is indeed a treasure trove on their Kennan In Memoriam page.

    It is dificult to explain how this one man changed Ameican society, but he did. I agree, go to the a Keenan in Memoriam page – you may not always agree, but he made you think. As has been often said, he understood the Russians better than his own people, the Americans. He was of the realist school of politics.
