The Pulitzer Prize–winning biography of Harry S. Truman, whose presidency included momentous events from the atomic bombing of Japan to the outbreak of the Cold War and the Korean War, told by America’s beloved and distinguished historian. The life of Harry S. Truman is one of the greatest of American stories, filled with vivid characters—Roosevelt, Churchill, Stalin, Eleanor Roosevelt, Bess Wallace Truman, George Marshall, Joe McCarthy, and Dean Acheson—and dramatic events. In this riveting biography, acclaimed historian David McCullough not only captures the man—a more complex, informed, and determined man than ever before imagined—but also the turbulent times in which he rose, boldly, to meet unprecedented challenges. The last president to serve as a living link between the nineteenth and the twentieth centuries, Truman’s story spans the raw world of the Missouri frontier, World War I, the powerful Pendergast machine of Kansas City, the legendary Whistle-Stop Campaign of 1948, and the decisions to drop the atomic bomb, confront Stalin at Potsdam, send troops to Korea, and fire General MacArthur. Drawing on newly discovered archival material and extensive interviews with Truman’s own family, friends, and Washington colleagues, McCullough tells the deeply moving story of the seemingly ordinary “man from Missouri” who was perhaps the most courageous president in our history.

On the sixtieth anniversary of the founding of the State of Israel an international group of scholars, policy makers, and members of the public gathered at the Harry S. Truman Research Institute for the Advancement of Peace on the Hebrew University Campus to examine the diplomatic and political context from which the State of Israel emerged. Presenters placed special emphasis on research using archival materials made available in recent decades. This event also marked the fortieth anniversary of the creation of the Harry S. Truman Research Institute and provided an opportunity to commemorate and reflect on the work supported by the Institute. This collection of the thirteen articles presented at the conference in May 2008 advances the discussion of President Truman's recognition of the State of Israel, highlights ongoing research in international archives, and reviews efforts in the advocacy of peace made possible by the Institute.

Harry S. Truman sensed something profound and meaningful in the Jewish restoration to Palestine, something which transcended other considerations. As the president recorded in his Memoirs, the Palestine question was "a basic human problem." In the end, Truman was willing to go against the current of his most trusted foreign policy advisers, who were absolutely opposed to the establishment of a Jewish state in the Middle East. These advisers argued that however humanitarian a Jewish homeland might seem, such a proposition posed a real risk to American interests in the Near East and to United States national security in the late 1940s. Despite their continued opposition, Truman stood his ground and maintained that he would decide the entire issue based on what he thought was right. Of interest to historians, and students of Israel and of the U.S. presidency.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2002 im Fachbereich Germanistik - Neuere Deutsche Literatur, Note: 1,0, Universitat Mannheim (Philologie), Veranstaltung: Die neue (?) Religion der Medien, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Im Vordergrund von Peter Weirs Film Die Truman Show" steht die Beschaftigung mit der Welt der Medien und vor allem mit der Rolle des Fernsehens, das trotz der neueren Entwicklungen weiterhin als das Leitmedium in modernen Informationsgesellschaften zu betrachten ist. Das Genre, das die Truman Show" als besonders charakteristisch in den Mittelpunkt stellt, ist die Soap Opera," also die Verdoppelung des Alltags in Form der Fernsehserie. Die Soap Opera" baut eine zeitlich unabgeschlossene, aber dennoch uberschaubare Parallelwelt auf, welche Sinnstiftung, Orientierung und Integrationsformen bereithalt. Peter Weir spitzt das Paradigma Soap Opera" zu, indem er sie um die Dimension des Reality TV" erweitert: Truman ist echt," er spielt sich nicht selbst, sondern er ist er selbst, und in ihm konnen die Fernsehzuschauer gewissermassen sich selbst beobachten, wie sie wirklich sind. Sie werden zu Voyeuren ihrer eigenen Existenz, ohne fur dieses so beobachtete Leben Verantwortung ubernehmen zu mussen. Im Kontext der Rezeptionsforschung wird erkannt, dass wiederkehrende Programmangebote in die Alltagsroutine der Zuschauer so eingebunden werden, dass sie Bestandteil von Ritualen im Alltag werden. Die medienwissenschaftliche Erforschung lasst eine ubergreifende Nahe zu mythischer Narration und nach Analogien zu religioser Sinngebung und Vergewisserung erkennen. Peter Weirs Die Truman Show" ist ein schones Beispiel dafur, dass das Kino einer der Orte ist, an dem die Gegenwart Fragen reflektiert, die in vergangenen Zeiten vor allem im religiosen Raum angesiedelt waren. In der Truman Show" finden sich sowohl vielfaltige und zahlreiche religiose Symbole, Motive und Bilder, als auch theosophische und gnostischeVorstellungen, Themen und Anspielungen. Im Rahmen d
