NEW YORK (AP) — Fox News host and chief political anchor Bret Baier is working on a book about the waning days of Dwight Eisenhower's presidency and the beginning of John F. Kennedy's administration.

William Morrow, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, told The Associated Press on Monday that Baier's "Three Days in January: Dwight Eisenhower's Final Mission" would come out in January, around the time the successor to President Barack Obama will be sworn in. Baier will focus on Eisenhower's farewell address, when he famously warned of a burgeoning "military-industrial complex," and on the transition to Kennedy, nearly 27 years his junior.

Baier will work on the book with author Catherine Whitney and will draw in part on recently released documents from the Eisenhower library. He was previously the co-author of the memoir "Special Heart."
