William L. Clayton was "the principal architect of American post-war foreign economic policy" (Newsweek), yet his seminal contributions to the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT), the Marshall Plan, and the Truman Doctrine have been largely ignored over the past four decades. This gap in the story of free-world cooperation is filled by Gregory Fossedal's vivid biography.


"This is a timely, well-told story of one man's extraordinarily successful effort to shape a global, peacefully competitive economic community." —Senator Bill Bradley

"An important addition to our understanding of modern history and particularly of the early phases of the Cold War… insightful and revealing." —Zbigniew Brzezinski
