MEDIA REVIEWS

"An admiring study by a solid historian."--"National Review"


"Vivid, thorough and illuminating--an arresting study of an arresting President."--Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.


"With this second volume, Donovan completes what is now the best available history of the Truman presidency. As in the first volume ("Conflict and Crisis"), his subjects are people and events that affected the president, as well as Truman himself. . . . With an eye for detail, Donovan recalls forgotten as well as better known men and movements, including MacArthur and McCarthyism. . . . Highly recommended."--"Library Journal"


"Robert J. Donovan has devoted 18 years to Harry S. Truman. As Washington correspondent for "The New York Herald Tribune, " Mr. Donovan was a close observer for more than seven years of the Truman Administration and he has spent over 10 years working on two volumes, "Conflict and Crisis" . . . and . . . "Tumultuous Years." Together they are among the best books on the Presidency ever written. . . . "Tumultuous Years" is filled with fresh and revealing insights."--"New York Times Book Review"


"A fitting sequel to a fine first volume. Donovan's narrative of Truman's troubled second term--a melodrama in a dozen acts--is balanced in judgment, fast in pace, and fascinating as a cool correction to most recent commentaries both on HST in human terms and on the so-called imperial presidency."--Richard E. Neustadt
