By Eisenhower, Dwight David; Gellman, Irwin F.; Nixon, Richard Milhous

“Irwin Gellman has emerged from years within the documents to inform the attention-grabbing tale of President Dwight Eisenhower and his dating together with his vice chairman, Richard Nixon. Gellman dispels the fog that has lengthy enveloped this topic and casts new gentle on a severe chilly struggle presidency. Masterfully written, The President and the Apprentice is a must-read for a person who, like me, loves strong political history.”—Allen Matusow, writer of The Unraveling of America
 
greater than part a century after Eisenhower left place of work, the background of his presidency is so clouded via fable, partisanship, and outright fraud that the majority humans have little realizing of ways Ike’s management labored or what it complete. We know—or imagine we know—that Eisenhower distrusted his vp, Richard Nixon, and saved him at arm’s size; that he did little to boost civil rights; that he sat via as Joseph McCarthy’s reckless anticommunist crusade threatened to break his management; and that he deliberate the disastrous 1961 Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba. None of this is often true.
 
The President and the Apprentice finds a unique Eisenhower, and a distinct Nixon. Ike relied on and depended on Nixon, sending him on many delicate abroad missions. Eisenhower, now not Truman, accomplished the desegregation of the army. Eisenhower and Nixon, now not Lyndon Johnson, driven the Civil Rights Act of 1957 during the Senate. Eisenhower was resolute to carry down McCarthy and did so. Nixon by no means, opposite to fresh debts, observed a psychotherapist, yet whereas Ike was once getting better from his middle assault in 1955, Nixon was once overworked, overanxious, overmedicated, and on the limits of his skill to function.
 
in accordance with 20 years of study in several information, many formerly untouched, this booklet bargains a clean and staggering account of the Eisenhower presidency.
 
“Irwin Gellman’s fantastic study and believable reconstruction of the Eisenhower-Nixon courting may possibly revolutionize the which means of ancient revisionism. The President and the Apprentice is an unsettling tour de force.David Levering Lewis, writer of King: A Biography and W.E.B. Du Bois: A Biography, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Biography
