en Limba Engleză Carte Hardback – 09 Jun 2017
As 34th President of the United States of America, Dwight D. Eisenhower continues to attract much attention due to his presidency′s lasting impact on modern America. He was a far more complex individual than often perceived, and the essays in this volume emphasize his many dimensions and the importance of the Eisenhower years.
A Companion to Dwight D. Eisenhower brings new depth and scope to the historiography of this pivotal figure in American history. This Companion thoughtfully discusses new and significant literature in chapters about politics, international affairs, culture, and society during the Eisenhower years. The vivid analysis of eminent historians brings to life the Eisenhower era and the man himself, broadening the historical scope by which Eisenhower is understood and interpreted.
This Companion evaluates important recent scholarship on Eisenhower and makes valuable suggestions for further reading for graduate students and advanced undergraduates in history, political science, and policy studies, and for general readers who are interested in Eisenhower.
