About This Item

Boston: Houghton and Mifflin. Very Good in Very Good- dust jacket. 1969. First Edition. Hardcover. xx, 656 pages. Index. Illustrated. Soft ends and some light yellowing; the dustjacket has a tear at the spine head and worn edges & corners, it is not price clipped but there is a ink pen mark. Galbraith (1908-2006) was an economist, intellectual and the Ambassador to India from 1961-1963. In India, he became a confidant of Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru and extensively advised the Indian government on economic matters. India was considered by President John F. Kennedy to be not just important in its own right, but because an Indian diplomat always served as the chief commissioner of the International Control Commission (ICC), and thus in this way, Galbraith came to be involved in American policy towards Southeast Asia from his perch as an ambassador in New Delhi. Because of his recommendation, First Lady of the United States Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy undertook her 1962 diplomatic missions in India and Pakistan. (Photographs of) ; 8vo .
