Mandate for Change, 1953-1956: The White House Years

Buy Here:

Dwight D. Eisenhower

The story of his first administration, told by the 34th President of the United States. Here, Dwight D. Eisenhower, One of the major figures of the twentieth century, writes an account of the events, as he saw them, leading up to a sweeping mandate, and then pursues the theme of change in the years 1953 - 1956. The whole range of governmental problems and of administration successes partial victories and failures 1953 - 1956, is treated here. Yet the warmth and intimacy of the writing give its detail fascination. Good stories, wry, humorous or dramatic, constantly spill out of the pages. Eisenhower tells not only what decisions he took, but what he thought in taking them and what he learned. 650 pages. Illustrated with many photos of the period.
