This chapter discusses the Eisenhower presidency, showing a president who was undynamic, ineffective, and too inarticulate. Nevertheless, Winston Churchill continued his attempts to achieve détente, despite opposition from Dulles and Eden. It looks at Stalin's idea for a Summit and shows that the Soviet dictator was ready to help end the war in Korea. The chapter also discusses Churchill's visit to New York.

Keywords:   Eisenhower presidency, détente, Winston Churchill, Summit, Korea, Stalin
