    Ike's Mystery Man by Peter Shinkle is a very interesting combination of biography and history. On the whole, it is a biography of Robert Cutler, who was the first National Security Advisor. He was also a gay man working in the government during the McCarthy era, when not only commun...

    Shinkle doesn't comment or speculate on what Soviet Intelligence knew about Cutler. Some research on what Russians knew or a little outreach to historians of the KGB on Cutler, would have made this a better book. ...

    I read political biographies to gain insight into an era or obscure, yet significant, events. I don?t read them to find out who slept with whom (straight, gay or bi). General Cutler?s nephew seems so intrigued w his uncle?s love life and what young man he has fallen for that he s...

    The life of Robert Cutler, a confidant of President Eisenhower, who compartmentalized his gay life for 40 years, is wonderfully told. If one is looking for a gay life during the 1930's through 1960's, one will be disappointed. After an experience in his youth, he seems to have buried t...

    A terrific read. If you?re interested in IKE?s presidency, the Cold War, or what it was like to live as a gay man in the 50?s closet, this is a terrific story. Well worth the read. ...
