Affairs of State: the Eisenhower Years
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.
