US history 1945-1970

posted by .

The question: The 1952 Republican Party platform called for a radical change in domestic and foreign policies including an end to New Deal programs, and the replacement of Truman's containment policy with the policy of liberating captive peoples. Did the Eisenhower presidency result in a radical change in U. S. foreign and domestic policies? Basing your answer on James Patterson's Grand Expectations, supplemented by the Lecture Notes, please begin by 1) briefly describing the Truman administration's main domestic and foreign policies (for example, explain the policy of containment as well as other matters), and then 2) discuss Eisenhower's main domestic and foreign policies indicating in each case whether there was a radical change or mainly a continuation of Truman's policies. In your final paragraph sum up your conclusion as to whether the Eisenhower administration's policies were radically different from Truman's or whether there was mainly continuity.
