A candid inquiry into the policies & personalities of America's presidents, sweeping away popular misconceptions. A U. S. history as seen from the White House.
Tthe author tries to explain what he means by the many-coloured word, democracy, showing the pitfalls of our system and suggesting that with good will and common sense they might be evaded. The book contains essays on the headings: Freedom, Representative Democracy, and The New Nations.
The author reviews the events and crises that have marked postwar history--the Yalta and Potsdam conferences, the Berlin airlift, the Eightieth Congress and Truman's election, the Hiss case, the collapse of Nationalist China, the McCarthy hearings, the atom and hydrogen bombs, McCarthy's "retirement," and Eisenhower's first election.
This book attempts to explain how Americans have evolved a political system which makes "total ideological victory" more improbable than in any other nation, and how the same system makes sectional divisions increasingly unlikely.
This volume is the classic sequel to I'll Take My Stand, the famous defense of the South's agrarian traditions.
