Summary expansion
The Macmillan-Eisenhower Correspondence, 1957-1963 provides, for the first time, an edition of the correspondence between Harold Macmillan and Dwight D. Eisenhower during their tenures as national leaders in the late 1950s and early 1960s. The book brings together more than 400 letters, cables, transcripts of telephone conversations and other messages sent by Macmillan and Eisenhower to each other. Macmillan and Eisenhower formed the most important diplomatic partnership of their period and this book provides a fascinating, behind-the-scenes look at the approach taken by the two leaders to the problems of the Cold War. The collection shows how Macmillan and Eisenhower agreed and disagreed on the fundamental political issues of the day, including the nuclear arms race with the Soviet Union, great-power rivalry in the Middle East, and the Berlin crisis. In their correspondence, Macmillan and Eisenhower also revealed their estimations of other world leaders, including Nikita Khrushchev, Charles de Gaulle, and Konrad Adenauer. The book illustrates how they managed to keep the peace, in part, by preserving and strengthening the special relationship between Britain and the United States
