      Based on twenty years of research, a book that rewrites the history of the Eisenhower presidency “Irwin Gellman has emerged from years in the archives to tell the fascinating story of President Dwight Eisenhower and his relationship with his vice president, Richard Nixon. Gellman dispels the fog that has long enveloped this subject and casts new light on a critical Cold War presidency.   ANALYSIS/OPINION: THE PRESIDENT AND THE APPRENTICE: EISENHOWER AND NIXON, By Irwin F. Gellman. Yale University Press, $40, pages.

        By Richard M. Filipink, Jr. New York: Lexington Books, pp. Richard M. Filipink, Jr. pierces through the mythology that still surrounds Dwight D. Eisenhower and portrays him as an extremely conservative ideologue and a Machiavellian politician shaping American foreign policy . Eisenhower and the Cold War Economy William M. McClenahan Jr. and William H. Becker Throughout his two-term presidency, Dwight D. Eisenhower faced the challenge of managing a period of peacetime prosperity after more than two decades of depression, war, and postwar inflation.

      President Eisenhower spoke these words during the Hungarian revolt out of guilt that U.S. propaganda had encouraged the Hungarians to believe the United States would support their efforts. Complete the passage below describing the housing revolution that took place in America during the postwar economic boom. A new book explores how a week-long war—one barely covered in college history courses—explained the subsequent sixty years of American foreign policy in the Middle East. American presidents make the same foreign policy mistakes over and over again. Intervening when they should not. Sitting on the sidelines when it’s the worst possible choice.
