While the authors acknowledge Eisenhower's instinctive appreciation of the challenges posed by Third World nationalism to US foreign policy, most fault him and his officials for being unable to compromise Cold War ties with colonial allies or their condensing attitudes towards non-white peoples to develop and implement effective policies that addressed nationalism and met demands for economic development. The resulting mismatch in the administration's words and deeds, contend most of the authors, created a legacy of Third World misttust of the United States that would estrange relations with many countries and in some cases magnify the intensity of crises that would be faced by Eisenhower's successors.
