In July 2016, Oxford University Press will be publishing my book, Liking Ike: Eisenhower, Advertising, and the Rise of Celebrity Politics.  Over the next months, I will be populating this site with blog posts, videos, and images related to the Eisenhower stars and what they tell us about American political culture today.
