Description: In Man of the People, Alonzo Hamby offers a gripping account of a distinctively American life, tracing Truman's remarkable rise from marginal farmer in rural Missouri to shaper of the postwar world. Hamby shows there was more to Truman than the "Give 'em Hell Harry" of popular imagination. Insecure, ambitious, a man of honor, a partisan loyalist, an agrarian Jeffersonian Democrat who became a champion of big government, Truman was a complex figure who fought long and hard to triumph over his weaknesses.

Truman comes alive in these pages as he has nowhere else, making his way from the farmhouse, to the front lines in France during World War I, to the small-business world of Kansas City, to the Senate, and finally to the Oval Office. Harry Truman, Hamby writes, was a flawed man, yet one of the great presidents of the twentieth century. In Man of the People, he provides a deeply researched and perceptive biography, giving us the best look yet at who Truman was, how he changed, and why he triumphed.
