Eisenhower: the Inside Story

By Robert J. Donovan

Harper, 1956, 423 pp.

In this case the subtitle is altogether fitting. Mr. Donovan, a Washington correspondent of the New York Herald Tribune, has evidently been given access to minutes of many Cabinet and other top-level meetings and has also had fruitful interviews with many officials. The result--which seems responsibly handled and written--is a surprisingly intimate picture of the inner workings of the Eisenhower Administration, including some highly illuminating details on the formulation of foreign and domestic policies.
