Summary
"When Henry Grady died in 1957, one obituary called him "America's top diplomatic soldier" for a critical period of the cold war, and over a long career he was deeply involved in events that changed our role in the world. Even so, this self-described "soft" cold warrior has been largely overlooked by historians. His memoirs, left to languish with his other papers, are now published for the first time, offering new insight into the origins and implementation of American trade and development policies-and into the tumult that was the cold war." "A specialist in international economic policy, Grady helped create the system of reciprocal trade established under FDR during the depression. Progressing in his career through his abilities rather than through political connections, he was sent to India during World War II to spark that nation's production for the war effort, then to Italy to help jump-start its economy once German forces were driven out. After the war, he was the first American ambassador to an independent India, then served as ambassador to Greece and Iran - where he was embroiled in the oil industry crisis that eventually led to the CIA's overthrow of Prime Minister Mohammad Mossadegh." "Grady's memoirs are an intriguing and informative account of early cold war diplomacy in significant and turbulent regions of the Third World, embellished by his thoughts about the changing nature of American economic policies and his role as a representative of that system abroad. His account offers a new perspectives on the crisis in Iran in the early 1950s, where Grady was especially critical of Secretary of State Dean Acheson's support for the remnants of British imperialism in Iran - and paid for his criticism with his job."--BOOK JACKET
