[29] Grosse, writing of the cold War era, states of the CFR:

The Council on Foreign Relations functioned at the core of the public institution-building of the early Cold War, but only behind the scenes. As a forum providing intellectual stimulation and energy, it enabled well-placed members to convey cutting-edge thinking to the public—but without portraying the Council as the font from which the ideas rose. Peter Grosse, Continuing The Inquiry: The Council on Foreign Relations from 1921 to 1996, “X Leads the Way,” (New York: Council on Foreign Relations, 2006).The entire book can be read online at: Council on Foreign Relations: http://www.cfr.org/about/history/cfr/index.html
