1I dedicate this book to the memory of my mentor and good friend, Kinley J. Brauer (1935-2003), Professor of the History of American Foreign Relations at the University of Minnesota from 1965 to 2000. Wednesday afternoon International History meetings in his office were instrumental in my development as a scholar and teacher.
