The Wise Men: Six Friends and the World They Made chronicles the lives of America's arguably most influential power brokers of the 20th century. Kennan, Acheson, Bohlen, Lovett, Harriman, and McCloy. While these currently may not be household names, the impact these men have had in shaping the present political and economic paradigms is indisputably gargantuan. The authors of The Wise Men have provided an extremely valuable volume that reports from a very human perspective the close relationships among these power brokers and presidential advisers from FDR to LBJ who were instrumental in shaping the post-World War II world. The summary printed on the book's back cover aptly sets the stage for what readers will find as a thorough presentation of personalities and personal relationships, and how this social dynamic affected very historically impactful political actions, military maneuvers and policy positioning.
