Summary

This seminar study examines the Eisenhower presidency.  The author argues that the presidency marked an important stage in the evolution of modern America, but left a decidedly mixed legacy for future presidents.   Domestically Eisenhower pursued a 'middle way'.  Imbued with a profound district of politics and politicians, Eisenhower sought as much as possible to concentrate public policy making in the hands of an enlightened elite of public and private experts.  Internationally, Eisenhower's policies exacerbated the nuclear arms race, institutionalised the Cold War, and extended the East-West struggles to new arenas in the Third World.   This new account offers an up-to-date synthesis of this newly emerging literature, and reviews Eisenhower's record - from the mishandling of the Civil Rights movement to the escalation of the arms race and the intensification of the Cold War.
