Read this for a grad class.
This is super informative and well thought out. Everything you didn't know that you didn't know about NSC 68.
Yeah, very useful, just not the most enthralling book I've ever read.

This is a good supplementary textbook for an upper division course on the Cold War. It contains a historical introduction, the text of NSC 68 and a selection of excerpted commentaries from various points of view.
