ABSTRACT
The article presents an analysis of three books on U.S. president Dwight D. Eisenhower. These books are "Eisenhower: The Man and the Symbol," by John Gunther; "General Ike," by Alden Hatch; and "What Eisenhower Thinks," edited by Allan Taylor. All three authors gloss over Eisenhower's disastrous failure as president of Columbia University. In that post, Eisenhower never came to grips with actual educational problems, was inaccessible to the faculty, refused to listen to advice, surrounded himself with untutored military aides, hated the routine of speechmaking, gladhanding, and money raising, and fled back to military life with delight.
