The Republicans

Lewis L. Gould

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on how the Republicans sought and then won national power during the 1940s and 1950s while their own sense of themselves as a party remained in flux during the years between the end of World War II and the presidential candidacy of Richard Nixon in 1960. It details the presidency of Dwight D. Eisenhower; the Republicans' problems in the areas of civil rights and foreign policy; and the election of John F. Kennedy in 1960.

Keywords:   Republicans, Republican Party, political power, World War II, Richard Nixon, Dwight D. Eisenhower, civil rights, foreign policy, John F. Kennedy
