Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The European Recovery Program or Marshall Plan was a massive American-aid package designed to help the war-torn countries of Western Europe after WW II. Hogan, who teaches at Ohio State University, describes the plan from its inception through congressional enactment and analyzes in detail the methods by which it was put into action. His study goes far beyond description and analysis. Hogan's ambitious, closely reasoned and strongly supported argument is that the Marshall Plan was an outgrowth of organizational, economic and political trends that had already forged American business methods before World War II, and that the plan was a bold attempt to project the American corporative-political economy across the Atlantic. The author brings into sharp focus "the triumph of the traders' approach," an important turning point in the history of the plan, and the problems of reconciling European recovery-aid with U.S. rearmament imperatives during the Korean War.

From Library Journal

Hogan judges the Marshall Plan to be the most successful peacetime foreign policy carried out by the United States in this century. While this is not, perhaps, an especially courageous conclusion, considering our somewhat uneven record, the author's opinion and arguments have merit and so does his assessment of the period encompassing this $12 billion package of postwar aid to Europe. Whereas the United States had the expectation of creating a Europe in its own image, French and British interests had other, more independent intentions. The Marshall Plan ultimately did succeed in creating a stronger, multinational Europe, but it certainly did not do so in a way America had planned. A worthwhile purchase for most libraries, Hogan's work will no doubt become one of the seminal histories of postwar cooperation and development. Jeff Northrup, Birmingham P.L., Ala.
