The article describes how international relations of the United States have been shaped by various institutions, specifically by the Institute of Pacific Relations (IPR). The author states that to understand American policy toward China in years after 1945, one has to be not only an historian but also a psychiatrist. The article also describes the outcome of the report of the McCarran committee on its investigation of IPR. In a closely printed book of 225 pages it summarizes evidence taken over a period of 11 months and running to 5,000 pages. The major findings were that IPR served international Communist interests and affected adversely the interests of the United States.
