Book Overview: Dwight D. Eisenhower: The American Presidents Series: The 34th President, 1953-1961

A bona-fide American hero at the close of World War II, General Dwight Eisenhower rode an enormous wave of popularity into the Oval Office seven years later. Though we may view the Eisenhower years through a hazy lens of 1950s nostalgia, historians consider his presidency one of the least successful. At home there was civil rights unrest, McCarthyism, and a deteriorating economy; internationally, the Cold War was deepening. But despite his tendency toward brinksmanship, Ike would later be revered for keeping the peace. Still, his actions and policies at the onset of his career, covered by Tom Wicker, would haunt Americans of future generations.

"A publishing milestone . . . Schlesinger, a master craftsman, is imposing his high standards on these books. Hail to the chief. It's a wonderful series."

Tom Wicker was a prominent American journalist and political author, renowned for his astringent commentary and substantial contributions to The New York Times. Born in Hamlet, North Carolina, in 1926, Wicker forged a successful career characterized by fervent dedication, sharp wit, and integrity. His hallmark was the 'In The Nation' column in The New York Times, wherein he both examined and influenced US policy from 1966 to 1991. Wicker's interest in politics culminated in significant literary contribution. Drawing from his rich journalistic experience, he authored a dozen non-fiction books on American politics, including "A Time to Die," his account of the Attica Prison uprising. This sterling combination of hands-on journalism and authorship showcased Wicker's ability to pertinently address crucial historic moments. In addition to his journalism and nonfiction, Wicker penned several novels highlighting his keen understanding of political pathways and human nature. His death in 2011 marked the end of an era in American journalism, but the echo of his insightful commentary continues to inspire worldwide readership and discourse.
