Dwight David Eisenhower and American Power

By William B. Pickett | Go to book overview

BIBLIOGRAPHICAL ESSAY

General and Interpretive

As indicated in the Preface, this book is the result of many months of research in the archives of the Eisenhower Library in Abilene, Kansas. Perhaps the best sources available in local libraries on Dwight David Eisenhower are his diary, Robert H. Ferrell, ed., The Eisenhower Diaries (New York: Norton, 1981); his last memoirs, Dwight D. Eisenhower, At Ease: Stories I Tell to Friends (New York: Doubleday, 1967); and a collection of letters to a childhood friend, Swede Hazlett, with whom he corresponded throughout his life, Robert Griffith, ed., Ike's Let- ters to a Friend, 1941–1958 (Lawrence: University Press of Kansas, 1984). The most-interesting and best-illustrated short biography is by Michael R. Beschloss, Eisenhower: A Centennial Life (New York: HarperCollins, 1990). The most thorough analysis of his life is the two-volume biography by Stephen E. Ambrose, Eisenhower: Soldier, General of the Army, President-Elect (New York: Simon and Schuster, 1983) and Eisenhower: The President (New York: Simon and Schuster, 1984). Other sources essential to students of Eisenhower's life and presidency are his White House memoirs, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Mandate for Change (Garden City, N.Y.: Doubleday, 1963) and Waging Peace (Garden City, N.Y.: Doubleday, 1965); Alfred D. Chandler, Jr., and Louis Galambos, eds., The Papers of Dwight D. Eisenhower (Baltimore: Johns Hopkins University Press, 1970-); and the Public Papers of the Presidents of the United States, Dwight D. Eisenhower, in 8 vols. (Washington, D.C.: Government Printing Office, 1958–61). Of similar importance are books by Eisenhower's brother (and alter ego) Milton S. Eisenhower
