Ike and Dick: Portrait of a Strange Political Marriage is narrative history-- an intimate exploration of the personal and public relationship between Dwight D. Eisenhower and Richard Nixon. It follows the two men from the time of their first encounter, in the summer of 1950, through Ike’s two, crisi presidential terms, when Nixon served as vice president, and, finally, to the early days of the Nixon presidency and the marriage of Eisenhower’s grandson, David, and Nixon’s daughter Julie, just months before Ike’s death. Ike and Dick is based on years of research and fresh interviews with dozens of men and women who knew and worked with both men, including members of the Nixon and Eisenhower families.
