About the Author:

Susan Eisenhower is president of the Eisenhower Institute. Formerly Chairman and co-founder of the Center for Political and Strategic Studies (CPSS), she joined the Institute as president when the two organizations combined programs in the fall of 2000. Ms. Eisenhower has authored three books: two of which "Breaking Free" and "Mrs. Ike" have appeared on bestseller lists. She has also edited three collected volumes, "NATO at Fifty" and two on Central Asia, including the most recent, "Islam and Central Asia: An Enduring Legacy or an Evolving Threat?" She has also penned hundreds of op-eds and articles for publications, such as The Washington Post, The LA Times, USA Today, The Naval Institute’s Proceedings, The London Spectator. Frequently, she has provided analysis for NPR and network television programs, including: CNN, CNN International, MSNBC, Nightline, This Week, The CBS News with Dan Rather, ABC Evening News with Peter Jennings, The News Hour with Jim Lehrer, Fox News with Brit Hume, and Hardball with Chris Matthews

From Library Journal:

The First Lady was once seen as the ultimate social and family support for the president, but her role has grown controversial, no matter how the particular woman interprets her part. Mamie Eisenhower chose the traditional role?being "the best Mrs. Eisenhower" anyone could be. Her granddaughter Susan (Breaking Free: A Memoir of Love and Revolution, LJ 5/15/95) took the more modern route of divorce, remarriage, and career but still takes a warm and sympathetic view of Mamie's life. A largely pampered child (although haunted by death in the family), Mamie followed the rugged life of a soldier's wife and endured the death of her firstborn child, long separations from a beloved but sometimes autocratic husband, and life at overseas hardship posts. Even with World War II fame, rumors, and life in the White House fishbowl, Mamie continued to deal with her fears, love her family, and remain devoted to Ike. Enhanced by unpublished letters (including many long, loving ones to Eisenhower), this work is a good attempt at exploring a woman of another time who lived in a different state of grace.
