Mandate for Change is the first volume of Eisenhower's memoirs. The book recounts the story of President Eisenhower’s first administration. Eisenhower writes a very personal account of the events, as he saw and lived them, and then pursues the theme of change in the years of 1953 to 1956. Waging Peace comes afterwards in 1965 and continues in the same fashion, with reference to the years 1956-1961. Eisenhower continues his memoirs with the accounts of decisive presidential meetings and his personal impressions of other influential American presidents.
