In analyzing the subject assigned to me for my thesis I realized that I had only the haziest notion of exactly what "foreign policy" is; I had forgotten most of the details of early United States history; I had never actually formed a comprehensive picture of Russia or the Russians; and what I knew of Communism and Soviet diplomacy had been picked up mainly from newspapers and commentators.
