    Those funds were then available to fuel the consumer boom that followed the war. The case studies in this book examine significant parallels between the situation in Eastern Europe today and the issues facing Europe and Japan after World War II, offering insights on what kinds of policy actions will be most effective in this difficult period of reconstruction. A person who detested most of his own Cabinet and the daily routine of presidential meetings, Nixon spent as much time as he could by himself in a small study off the Oval Office. But intellectual argument changed nothing. The intersection of "peace" and "democracy" in postwar Japan begins with the Allied occupation of and its evolution into the San Francisco System.

Their views were also influenced by the domestic climate in the United States during the Cold War, and especially the bitter debate on McCarthyism, which intensified the fear of popular participation and the potential dangers of mass-based movements in the Third World postwar evolution of development thinking book led many policy-oriented intellectuals to favor the managerial role of political elites in maintaining order and stability.

The TVA was a total, multipurpose project involving flood control through the construction of some thirty dams, hydroelectric power, irrigation, river navigation, public health programs, malaria control, new housing, community planning, education, library services, and the resettlement of flooded areas to new model towns.
