The former is hallmarked by prominent figures such as Theodore Sorensen, Arthur Schlesinger, General Maxwell Taylor, Roger Hilsman, Walt Rostow, Kenneth O`Donell, and Raymond Garthoff.

| Quarantining a War | Sean Malone | | Professor Fuhrman | 4/26/2013 | POLS 418 | Only five years after the United States ended World War II by creating and using nuclear weapons on the Japanese mainland, we were already embroiled in the Korean War.
