Inscribed by the author on the half-title page 'To Dean Acheson. From whom I have learned more in a few communications than in my academic researches. With admiration and friendship, Henry A. Kissinger'. Acheson served as Secretary of State to the administration of Harry S. Truman between 1949-1953, helping to orchestrate the Marshall Plan and most famously persuading Truman to intervene in the Korean War. Kissinger clearly holds Acheson in high regard, declaring him an important figure who came 'closer than any other of the modern period' to fulfilling the tasks of Secretary of State.
