Noted journalist and author Evan Thomas is well-known to viewers of the Washington public affairs show “Inside Washington.” He has worked for Time magazine and was assistant managing editor at Newsweek. His 2010 book “The War Lovers: Roosevelt, Lodge, Hearst, and the Rush to Empire” was called an “engrossing history” by The New York Times. Thomas has since turned to the 34th president in “Ike’s Bluff: President Eisenhower’s Secret War to Save the World” (Little, Brown/Hachette), an account of how, according to Thomas, the underrated Eisenhower saved the world from nuclear destruction.
