Roosevelt: A Documentary History (1998), Herbert Hoover and Harry S. Truman: A Documentary History (1992), and Uncommon Americans: The Lives and Legacies of Herbert and Lou Henry Hoover (2003). He has appeared on MSNBC, CNN, CSPAN, and other networks and is frequently quoted on the role of former presidents in public life as well as on the growing importance of the vice presidency in publications such as the New York Times, the Washington Post, and USA Today.
"...this book conventienly brings them [primary source materials] together, arranged thematically in a way that allows researchers to gain better insight into the complicated relationship between these two Republican presidents. Summing Up: Recommended." - CHOICE
"Definitive is a word scholars tend to avoid, and for good reason. But there is no better word to describe this superbly edited collection that illustrates more fully than anything to date the complex, politically awkward, and yet ultimately touching collaboration between America's thirty-first and thirty-fourth Presidents. Products of the American heartland, they drew opposing lessons from their intense involvement with the rest of the world. Yet they looked for common ground where it could be found, and in the end their differences were generational as much as ideological. Timothy Walch does them both justice, in a volume that anyone interested in twentieth century America will find hard to put down." - Richard Norton Smith, presidential historian
"In this impressive documentary history, threaded with perceptive commentary, Timothy Walch examines the complicated friendship and 'uneasy collaboration' between two of America's most noted Republican presidents. Herbert Hoover and Dwight D. Eisenhower illuminates not only the character and ideology of its protagonists but also the bumpy terrain of Republican politics in the Eisenhower era. This volume is a welcome contribution to presidential studies." - George H. Nash, author of the first three volumes of The Life of Herbert Hoover
"Whatever his failures as president, Herbert Hoover was one of the most impressive men of the twentieth century. His long correspondence with Dwight Eisenhower sheds important light on Hoover's great record of public service, the state of the Republican Party at mid-century, and the minds of two American presidents." - Jonathan Alter, author of The Defining Moment: FDR's Hundred Days and the Triumph of Hope

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Condition: New. 280 pages. Dimensions: 8.6in. x 5.6in. x 0.8in.This volume offers core selections from and analysis of primary source materials documenting the uneasy collaboration between two iconic Republican US presidents, Herbert Hoover and Dwight Eisenhower. Given their shared conservative philosophy and similar criticisms of the bloated excesses of the New Deal, one might assume that the two men had a warm relationship, but their interactions were overwhelmingly formal and exhibited little in the way of collegiality and warmth. Nonetheless, they found ample opportunity to work together in common cause in the years after World War II, and discussed much of contemporary relevance, from the contentious 1952 Republican nomination fight to the establishment of the second Hoover Commission to reorganize the Executive Branch to Hoovers last official assignment on behalf of the US as representative to the 1958 Worlds Fair. Included here are letters, reports, and telegrams that the two men sent directly to one another; diary entries and memoranda that document their meetings; relevant passages from speeches and press commentary; and candid comments that the two men made about each other in letters to friends and associates.
