With the rise of the New Left, New Social History and trends in cultural and post-structural scholarship, a book like
America's Rise to World Power, 1898-1954 can get forgotten. Foster Rhea Dulles is, to the best of my knowledge, out of print. That is a shame for a couple of reasons. First, it is not because this brand of mid-century consensus history was so perfect, but rather that it was so ubiquitous. It is hard to know what kind of history later historians were arguing against if you are not familiar with this kind of source. Second, Foster Rhea was cousin to the brothers John Foster and Allen Dulles who ran the State Department and CIA respectively. (See: The Brothers by Stephen Kinzer for an excellent biography of this pair. Foster Rhea's proximity alone reveals the kind of historical thinking that drove these influential figures. This book in particular was a standard history book in many schools. How many school children must have dutifully written their Cold War essays on world history based on this book?
