Reviews

"Truman supporters will praise the volume... Recommended." -- Choice


"Offers a powerful example of how prudently to derive, articulate, and persuade principled political ends.... We owe Spalding a debt of gratitude for shedding important new light on the Truman Administration and on the character of its central figure." -- Claremont Review of Books


"This is an excellent book for those passionate about the evolution of America's national security and grand strategies pursued during the Cold War." -- Great lakes Bulletin


"Spalding's new book indicates what may become a new strain in the study of American foreign policy." -- Register of the Kentucky Historical Society


"An important reevaluation of Truman. " -- Ron Radosh, TNR blog


""This Harry Truman biography is more academic than most books about his colorful personality and presidency. Spalding's final chapter is a substantive treatment of Truman's underestimated faith, particularly in relation to his Cold War anti-Communism."" -- Paul Kengor, Christianity Today
