The Hawk and the Dove

Shameless plug: Wired senior editor (and my ex-boss) Nick Thompson has a book coming out next week on Paul Nitze, George Kennan, and their roles in the Cold War, called The Hawk and the Dove. From the website:

In this masterly double biography, Nicholas Thompson brings Nitze and Kennan to vivid life. Nitze—the hawk—was a consummate insider who believed that the best way to avoid a nuclear clash was to prepare to win one. More than any other American, he was responsible for the arms race. Kennan—the dove—was a diplomat turned academic whose famous “X article” persuasively argued that we should contain the Soviet Union while waiting for it to collapse from within. For forty years, he exercised more influence on foreign affairs than any other private citizen.

Well? Go pre-order it on Amazon...
