ABSTRACT
The author reflects on isolationism as an issue in the 1956 presidential election in the U.S. in the wake of tragic events in Eastern Europe and the Middle East. He claims that even President Dwight D. Eisenhower said that the U.S. has carried its foreign involvement too far and too deep for it to retreat with honor thus making the plea for isolation a lost cause. He asserts that it will take time to assess if the policy affected the election outcome.
