Summary
"In his "Atoms for Peace" speech of 1953, President Dwight D. Eisenhower captured the tensions - and the ironies - of the atomic age. While nuclear devastation threatened all nations, Eisenhower believed only nuclear preparedness offered protection; while nuclear weapons loomed as the ultimate war cloud, nuclear power offered progress and hope." "This study offers a new understanding of the evolution of Cold War nuclear policy, the power of presidential rhetoric, and the political understanding of American's "man of peace," Dwight D. Eisenhower. The full text of Eisenhower's speech is presented." "Those interested in American foreign policy will find it compelling reading; scholars and students will find it challenging and rewarding analysis." --Book Jacket
