Overview

In Shaping and Signaling Presidential Policy: The National Security Decision Making of Eisenhower and Kennedy, Meena Bose compares how Dwight D. Eisenhower and John F. Kennedy developed their Cold War strategies, focusing on how each president's decision-making process shaped his policy. The study also compares how the presidents communicated their strategies, with particular attention to possible signals conveyed to the leaders of the Soviet Union.

Editorial Reviews

John P. Burke

“[Bose’s study] is well written and organized, treats an important topic, and, as indicative of the award for best dissertation, represents an important contribution to the field. . . . Her analysis . . . draws on newly declassified material and is nicely complemented by interview material. I was especially impressed not only with her ability to fit her study into the appropriate literature on presidential advising and decision making but also to address themes in international relations.”--John P. Burke, University of Vermont, and author of The Institutional Presidency
Booknews
Bose (political science, Hofstra U.) analyzes the leadership styles and advisory systems of Presidents Eisenhower and Kennedy, applying Alexander L. George's concept of "multiple advocacy," and finding that while Eisenhower succeeded in that framework, Kennedy's informal strategy produced more problems.
