Cold Warrior Abroad : The Foreign Missions of Vice President Richard Nixon
From 1953-1961, Richard Nixon served as Dwight Eisenhower’s vice president. As vice president, Nixon represented the United States and the Eisenhower administration on several foreign missions. Cold Warrior Abroad studies four of these missions in order to discern Nixon’s development as a statesman, and his understanding of, and impact on Eisenhower’s foreign policies. Through careful examination of archival sources, this thesis will reveal the significant role Nixon came to play in the alteration, execution, and sometimes formation of Eisenhower’s foreign policies in the regions the vice president visited.
