Inhaltsangabe: Bipartisan leadership that changed the world
With Franklin Roosevelt?s death in April of 1945, Vice President HarryTruman and Senator Arthur Vandenberg, the Republican leader onforeign policy, inherited a world in turmoil. With Europe flattenedand the Soviets emerging as America?s new adversary, Truman andVandenberg built a tight partnership with one another to address thechallenges at hand. Working in strong bipartisan fashion at a bitterlypartisan time, they crafted a dramatic new foreign policy throughwhich the United States stepped boldly onto the world stage for thefirst time to protect its friends, confront its enemies, and promotefreedom. These two men?unlikely partners by way of personality andstyle?transformed the United States from a reluctant global giant toa self-confident leader; from a nation that traditionally turned inwardafter war to one that remained engaged to shape the post-war landscape;and from a nation with no real military establishment to one that nowspends more on defense than the next dozen nations combined.
Lawrence J. Haas, an award-wining journalist, reveals how, throughthe close collaboration of Truman and Vandenberg, the United Statescreated the United Nations to replace the League of Nations, pursuedthe Truman Doctrine to defend freedom from Communist threat,launched the Marshall Plan to rescue Western Europe?s economy fromthe devastation of war, and established NATO to defend Western Europe.
