Eisenhower as an Activist President: A Look at New Evidence
Fred I. Greenstein, in an analysis based on recently opened archives, takes sharp issue with the conventional view of Dwight Eisenhower as a passive, unskilled president. According to Greenstein, Eisenhower was an active president who succeeded, albeit much of the time covertly, in putting his personal stamp on public policy.
It was in this article that the late Fred Greenstein first developed the idea of what he later called Eisenhower’s “hidden hand presidency.”
