Description - William Appleman Williams by Paul Buhle
William Appleman Williams (1921-1990) is remembered as the pre-eminent historian critic of the American empire in the second half of this century. More than any other scholar, he anticipated, encouraged and explained the attack of conscience suffered by the nation during the Vietnam War. Williams' controversial works have established him as the foremost interpreter of US foreign policy. At the end of the Cold War, when the US no longer faces any great enemy, the lessons of William Appleman Williams' life and scholarship have become more urgent than ever before.
