non-religious manuscripts of its day. The author felt it
was too "hot" for publication in 1956, when Eisenhower was
a very popular president. A few copies circulated among
some of Robert Welch's friends, and some updates were made
in the next few years. The national press "uncovered" a
copy after Welch's new organization, The John Birch Society,
proved to be a growing threat to the status quo. Hostile
reviews began appearing across the country of an unpublished
People began asking for the book.
Mr. Welch decided in 1963 to publish The Politician in self
defense. Once the book was printed, demand by bookstores
suddenly dried up, and reviewers quit mentioning it.
Hundreds of thousands of copies were eventually sold, but
that is another story...
The chapter on Operation Keelhaul is worth the price of the
book. Eisenhower's role in the forced repatriation of
refugees and anti-communists to the Soviet Union at the end
of WWII is well documented. It is a nauseating account of
treachery and politics in the twentieth century.
The maneuverings leading up to the 1952 GOP presidential
nomination are also revealed in the book, along with many
other historical details of the Eisenhower years not
commonly known. Hundreds of footnotes list primary sources,
mostly major newspaper stories, to verify the narrative.
The value of the book is not limited to students of the
1950's. Great insight into present day U.S. foreign policy
is hidden within the story of Ike. The uncanny similarity
of Clinton's globalism to Bush's "New World Order" makes
more sense after reading this groundbreaking book.
