Affairs of State: the Eisenhower Years

By Richard H. Rovere

Farrar, Straus, 1956, 390 pp.

Sharp-witted if somewhat uneven appraisals of the first three years of the Eisenhower Administration, by the Washington correspondent of The New Yorker magazine, in which most of these pieces first appeared. On the whole, and somewhat against the author's impulse, the judgment is more favorable than expected.
