With Britain's empire collapsing and Stalin's ascendant, U.S. officials under new Secretary of State George C. Marshall set out to reconstruct western Europe as a bulwark against communist authoritarianism. Their massive, costly, and ambitious undertaking would confront Europeans and Americans alike with a vision at odds with their history and self-conceptions. In the process, they would drive the creation of NATO, the European Union, and a Western identity that continues to shape world events.

This is the story behind the birth of the Cold War, and the U.S.-led liberal global order, told with verve, insight, and resonance for today. Bringing to bear fascinating new material from American, Russian, German, and other European archives, Benn Steil's book will forever change how we see the Marshall Plan.

Focusing on the critical years 1947 to 1949, Steil's gripping narrative takes us through the seminal episodes marking the collapse of postwar U.S.-Soviet relations: the Prague coup, the Berlin blockade, and the division of Germany. In each case, Stalin's determination to crush the Marshall Plan and undermine American power in Europe is vividly portrayed. And in a riveting epilogue, Steil shows how the forces which clove Europe in two after the Second World War have reasserted themselves since the collapse of the Soviet Union.

A polished and masterly work of historical narrative, The Marshall Plan is an instant classic of Cold War literature.

Recensione:

Painstakingly researched and well-written...a resounding success. (Financial History)

Refreshingly heterodox new history... (Thomas Meaney, London Review of Books)

An authoritative, detailed, and very revealing study. (Brian G. Cooper, Mainstream Journal)

An excellent new book by Benn Steil... Steil's account picks its way through all of the arguments with quiet skill. There are no shocks or revelations here, but Steil's mastery of both the sources and the narrative is exemplary. (Keith Lowe, The Telegraph)

Benn Steil has read widely and used archives in both Europe and the USA to write what many will consider to be the definitive history of the Marshall Plan... Steil has expert command of his sources and writes with clarity about a complex set of relations. (Keith Simpson, Total Politics)

Big, serious, and thoroughly intelligent. (Neal Ascherson, The New York Review of Books)

Steil is [also] a terrific writer... A highly recommended read. (Diane Coyle, Enlightenment Economics)

[An] emmensely erudite book. (Christopher Coker, Literary Review)

The Marshall Plan: Dawn of the Cold War is Benn Steil's second book on global politics and economics in the 1940s. Like The Battle of Bretton Woods (2013), which recounted how the US created the post-second world war financial and monetary order, The Marshall Plan is elegant in style and impressive in insights. Steil, director of international economics at the Council on Foreign Relations, has an enviable gift for presenting complex economic and geopolitical issues in crisp, readable prose. (Tony Barber, Financial Times)

Brilliant (Paul Kennedy, Wall Street Journal)

L'autore:

Benn Steil is Senior Fellow and Director of International Economics at the Council on Foreign Relations. His previous book, the prize-winning The Battle of Bretton Woods: John Maynard Keynes, Harry Dexter White, and the Making of a New World Order (2014), was called "a triumph of economic and diplomatic history" by the Financial Times, "a superb history" by the Wall Street Journal, and "the gold standard on its subject" by the New York Times.
