"It is surely for the president of a modern country, while still in office, to offer the public so unsparing an expose of his political and personal philosophy. And what is even more striking still is the elevated quality, morally and intellectually, of the philosophy that emerges from this effort."
— George F. Kennan, The New York Review of Books
"An eloquent reminder that moral struggles do not end with the overthrow of dictators." — Christian Science Monitor
