Course Description

UPDATED 1/7/2022 - THIS CLASS IS CANCELLED. : How did Harry S. Truman, born in late-19th-century Missouri, where he would spend his formative years as a seemingly ordinary man living a seemingly ordinary life, rise to become the leader of the postwar free world? This course will examine how time, place, and circumstances shaped the man; how this "accidental" president set the Democratic Party's domestic agenda for the remainder of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century; and how his foreign policy initiatives set the course for the "American century." Students will come to understand how America changed in Truman's lifetime, and the part he played in this process. This is a lecture-based course, but students will be encouraged to add comments and ask questions. | Lecture + Q&A.
