Relaxation Under Eisenhower

Elkins, Stanley
May 1956
New Republic;5/7/56, Vol. 134 Issue 19, p19
The article focuses on the book "Affairs of State: The Eisenhower Years," by Richard R. Rovere. The book is not simply a collection of the best of a good reporter, it is a set of first class critical essays on the current public scene. The point of stimulus for political writing has traditionally been either broad humor or right-thinking anxiety about keeping informed. The "Letters From Washington," of which the book is a collection, contains a series of commentaries on those aspects of the U.S. national affairs and public personalities which have been of special interest to the author.
