In a polarized Washington, can Democrats and Republicans work together on foreign policy? Can they let “politics stop at the water’s edge”? They once did, explains Lawrence J. Haas in Harry & Arthur: Truman, Vandenberg, and the Partnership That Created the Free World.
In a 10-minute conversation with The Bookmonger, Hass describes the legacy of President Truman and Sen. Arthur Vandenberg, a Republican from Michigan who first spoke of the “water’s edge.” He discusses the early years of the Cold War, what today’s Democrats can learn from Truman, and what today’s Republicans–who are now courted by “American First” isolationist rhetoric–can learn from Vandenberg.
