Book News
Assessing the domestic and foreign policies of the Dwight David Eisenhower presidency, as well as the governing style of the chief executive, Boyle (American history, U. of Nottingham, UK) generally comes to a favorable conclusion that contradicts portrayals of the President as an ineffectual leader out of his depth on many policy issues. Summing up Eisenhower's achievements in the phrase "peace and prosperity," he suggests that Eisenhower's major failing was in his lack of political skill, which led to the Republicans being unable to politically capitalize on Eisenhower's policy legacy.
