“The Kennan Diaries” reveals the personal life and the political, philosophical, and spiritual concerns of America’s most noted diplomat and foreign policy strategist, George F. Kennan. Edited by historian Frank Costigliola of the University of Connecticut, the volume is a landmark work of profound intellectual and emotional power. These never-before-published diaries offer a narrative of Kennan’s life in his own intimate and unflinching words and, through him, the arc of world events in the twentieth century.
