Surprisingly, limited attention is devoted to the affairs of the United States in the Prints for this period. Indeed, there is just over half as much material on North America as on the Soviet situation, and more space is given to events in China than the United States. A proposed alliance with the United States is covered, as are U.S. relations with the U.S.S.R., the Philippines, France, and China. Volumes on 1946 cover the following topics and many others: proposed Anglo-U.S. alliance; Anglo-U.S. financial agreement; U.S. policy in the Middle East and Philippines; U.S. treaty with China; resignation of Henry Wallace; and Congressional elections and Republican gains. Among the topics covered by other volumes in Part IV are the following: * General George Marshall becomes Secretary of State (1947); * The Truman Doctrine (1947); * U.S. aid to Greece and Turkey (1947); * The Marshall Plan (1947) * Taft-Hartley Act (1947); * Unification of the armed forces of the U.S. (1947); * Creation of the European Co-operation Administration (1948); * Labor strikes in the U.S. (1948); * Presidential election of 1948; * Communism in the United States; * Failure to pass the Fair Deal (1949); * Point Four program (1949); * North Atlantic Treaty agreement (1949); * Mutual Defense Assistance Act (1949); * Conviction of leaders of the Communist Party U.S.A. (1949); * U.S. foreign aid (1950); * U.S. and the Korean War; * Passage of the Internal Security Bill (1950); * Republican gains in Congressional elections (1950); * U.S. declares state of national emergency (1950)
