Beyond Geneva

(p.157) Chapter 10 Beyond Geneva
Apocalypse Management
Stanford University Press

This chapter describes the post-Geneva moves by President Dwight Eisenhower, whose administration was committed more strongly than ever to changing the balance of power, especially in Europe. Eisenhower's post-Geneva moves to encourage the stability and the U.S. position were bound to be destabilizing and weaken the U.S. position. He distinguished that every attempt to keep change in one area opened up risks of change somewhere else, and, in addition, was confident that more foreign military and economic aid was economically wise and important for the cold war campaign. Moreover, Eisenhower depended on military technology and economic aid as his primary tools of apocalypse management.

Keywords:   Geneva, Dwight Eisenhower, Europe, U.S. position, foreign military, cold war, military technology, economic aid, apocalypse management
