She then examines the early months of the Eisenhower presidency, investigating the loyalty program established for American employees at the UN and the psychological warfare waged against the Soviet Union. Carefully detailing the United States' attempt to use the UN to resolve the threats to international peace that arose in Korea, Indochina, Guatemala, the Suez, Hungary, and the Congo, she explores a variety of thematic issues - including the administration's disarmament policy at the UN and its approach to decolonization and the growing demands of the Third World.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In this meticulously researched study, Pruden (history, North Carolina State Univ.) analyzes the Eisenhower administration's relationship with the United Nations. The book recounts how the thought of Eisenhower, Dulles, and Lodge evolved from postwar euphoria to a more qualified enthusiasm for the United Nations as an instrument of international peace and justice. Pending a relaxation of international tensions, they regarded it as a useful forum for Cold War competition. Forced to acknowledge the paralysis of the Security Council, Eisenhower's team used the General Assembly to blunt the impact of unforeseen events--the Suez crisis, the Hungarian revolt, and the many decolonization struggles--and to advance U.S. political objectives. Their approach to the organization reflected the new emphasis on diplomacy and psychological warfare. The timely publication of the book coincides with the advent of a "New World Order" that arguably permits the UN to function as Eisenhower had hoped. This engaging work is recommended for academic libraries.--James Holmes, Student, Fletcher Sch. of Law and Diplomacy, Tufts Univ., Medford, MA
