An American Democrat: A Reevaluation of the Personality of Harry S. Truman
Alonzo L. Hamby offers an eclectic interpretation of Harry S. Truman's personality. He asserts that American democracy allows a "commoner' such as Truman to reach the presidency. He argues that as a commoner, Truman was a less successful leader than those presidents who were either born to high status or had reached it outside of politics.
