Dwight D. Eisenhower: Strategic Communicator


This first book-length study of Ike's consummate skills as a communicator shows how he used language as a weapon to achieve carefully conceived strategic purposes in the Cold War. If he seemed befuddled, he knew exactly what he was doing and why, used half-truths, was intentionally ambiguous and indirect, choosing his audiences and times deliberately and tactically. An expert in communication for this period provides an analysis of his speaking, extracts from important speeches, a selected chronology of speeches, and the most comprehensive bibliography of Eisenhower as an orator yet to be published, drawing on extensive primary and secondary material.
