It is with considerable gratitude that I acknowledge the assistance of the Dwight David Eisenhower Library, Abilene, Kansas, in the preparation of this book, and the encouragement of the Honorable John Eisenhower.
The order in which the papers appear in this volume is the result of an editorial decision. Regrettably, roundtable discussions and forum materials have had to be eliminated, and some of the papers have appeared in print elsewhere. The confer ence program, reprinted in full at the end of the book, is both an acknowledgment of all who participated and an expression of appreciation for their contributions.
