Ike's New Start in Asia

Hanson, Haldore
May 1955
New Republic;5/2/55, Vol. 132 Issue 18, p13
The article presents information about the U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower's new start in Asia. Two announcements by Eisenhower and a news leak from the Government of India at New Delhi suggest the possibility of a new trend in American foreign policy, a constructive economic course that would complement the overwhelming emphasis since 1950 on the military deterrent. The struggle within the Administration over the size of foreign aid has most often appeared in the press as an disagreement concerning the budget. In fact it was much more. It was essentially a debate over the adequacy of the foreign policy, especially the almost exclusive reliance upon military strength to stop Communist expansion.
