Summary
"America's thirty-fourth president was belittled by his critics as the babysitter-in-chief. This new look reveals how wrong they were. Dwight Eisenhower was bequeathed the atomic bomb and refused to use it. He ground down Joseph McCarthy and McCarthyism until both became, as he said, 'McCarthywasm.' He stimulated the economy to lift it from recession, built an interstate highway system, turned an $8 billion deficit in 1953 into a $500 million surplus in 1960" -- from publisher's web site
Summary
A revisionist assessment of Eisenhower credits him with moving defense dependency away from atomic bombs, eliminating the period deficit, and building the interstate highway system
