Description

The Books subseries is composed of materials related to 24 titles written by Kennan, with much of the material related to his Memoirs (1967, 1972), The Fateful Alliance (1984) and Sketches From a Life (1989), as well as Democracy and the Student Left (1968), The Marquis de Custine and His Russia in 1839 (1971), and Around the Cragged Hill (1993). The subseries includes drafts and printer proofs, correspondence with readers and with the publishers, reviews and publicity materials, papers regarding the production of foreign editions, and papers related to obtaining permissions and other publishing logistics. Due to the importance of Kennan's writing to his career, we have retained all drafts of his works, despite the overlap and duplication this entails.

Arrangement

Arranged alphabetically by title and then alphabetically by document type or subject.
