Summary:
The Dwight Eisenhower of popular imagination is a benign figure armed with a putter. The Eisenhower of journalist Jim Newton's rendering is shrewd and tempestuous. Mocked as a blunderbuss, he was a meticulous manager. Admired as a general, he was a champion of peace. Eisenhower enforced desegregation, built an interstate highway system, ground down Joseph McCarthy - and was the last president until Clinton to leave the country in the black.
General Note:
"Unabridged"--T.p. verso.
