Title: Early Cold War Summits: Eisenhower, Nixon, Kennedy, and Khrushchev, 1959 and 1960
Author: Whitefield, Jay Parker
Abstract: In 1959 and 1960 , three historic summits occurred during the Cold War . In 1959 , Vice President Richard Nixon traveled to the Soviet Union and met with Nikita Khrushchev . Later that same year , Khrushchev visited the United States and met with President Dwight Eisenhower . Less than two years later , President John Kennedy met Khrushchev in Vienna . This thesis argues that , although no accords were reached , all three of these summits eased tensions between the United States and the Soviet Union and helped avoid nuclear war between the two superpowers .
