The Brothers: John Foster Dulles, Allen Dulles, and Their Secret World War - Stephen Kinzer

One was staid, stuffy, akin to a clergyman; the other, relaxed, genial, womanizing. Together, John Foster Dulles and Allen Dulles shared a Manichean worldview that characterized 1950’s Cold War. It is fitting they are the first and only pair of brothers to ever concurrently hold the offices of Secretary of State and Director of the CIA. Stephen Kinzer’s illuminating, horrifying, and evocative biography, “The Brothers,” unveils their forgotten role in history. Foster and Allen personified Cold War fears of Communism, sharpening the perceived divide of good and evil. A sobering analysis and timely parable, “The Brothers” casts a light on the evil that comes from chasing monsters.
