Summary
Editor Kirkendall (emeritus, history, University of Washington) gathers US contributors in history, law, American studies, and journalism, including a contributor who served on Truman's staff, for this collection of essays on how Truman dealt with the tension between national security and individual liberties during the Cold War era. Some specific topics include Truman's Loyalty Review Board, his attempt to manage the second Red Scare, executive confidentiality during the Cold War, his treatment of Japanese Americans, and his Peace Program. One essay is based on the holdings of the Harry S. Truman Library and contains a wealth of b&w historical photos, letters, and Truman's handwritten and typewritten notes
