Passages drawn from thousands of pages of Truman interview transcripts reveal the outspoken president's thoughts on subjects ranging from the two-party system and the presidency to Geronimo and James K. Polk

Blackwell North Amer
In a series of conversations taped over a six-month period in 1960-61, retired President Harry S Truman discussed his views of the United States government - its history, its Constitution, its principles, its presidents. Truman was planning eventually to write a history based on these interviews, which were transcribed and preserved among his private presidential papers. The history never got written, but the interviews demonstrate again and again that our thirty-third president was without question (if often without political correctness) remarkably quotable.

& Taylor

The President who gave them hell, withstood the heat in the kitchen, and knew where the buck stopped speaks out on subjects from Geronimo to the two-party system in his incomparable, no-nonsense style. 30,000 first printing. $25,000 ad promo.
