Editorial Reviews

?Prepared by historians, political scientists, and individuals involved with the Truman administration, this collection of papers varies in character and quality from fond recollections to specialized scholarly essays. The upshot is a selective rather than a comprehensive reappraisal of the Truman presidency. Of 25 papers, half are substantial essays concerning relations with China, recognition of Israel, aid for Tito's Yugoslavia, and aspects of domestic economic policy. ... Several notable papers examine the use of economic measures as instruments of Cold War diplomacy. One essay analyzes Truman's ambivalent relationship with Tom Clark. The literary style of the essays often reflect that they were initially read to an audience. ... Most papers have full notes. Subject and name indexes are provided, as well as the program of the conference for which they were prepared. Undergraduate and graduate libraries.?-Choice
