Description
Macmillan and Eisenhower formed the most important diplomatic partnership of their time, and this book provides a behind-the-scenes look at the approach taken by the two leaders to the problems of the Cold War. It brings together more than 400 letters, cables, transcripts of telephone conversations and other messages sent by Macmillan and Eisenhower to each other. The collection shows how they agreed and disagreed on the fundamental political issues of the day, including the nuclear arms race, great-power rivalry in the Middle East and the Berlin crisis. It also reveals their estimations of other world leaders, including Khrushchev, de Gaulle and Adenauer.
