- Foreign Policy - 1,082 words
Foreign Policy With the world balancing on the edge of destruction, foreign relationships are extremely important to the United States of America. The United States is fully recognized as the most powerful nation on the planet earth, and with that power comes a definitive sense of responsibility. The U.S. needs to pay close attention to this responsibility if it hopes to keep its place on the throne as king of the nations. This is where the United States foreign policy comes into play. Foreign policy is essentially positive or negative interaction with other nations as well as the goals and principles that are included (Morrison #1 607).

- Mccarthy Gave His Name To An Age, But There Was Far More To Mccarthyism Than Mccarthy - 1,691 words
... Nichols personally took McCarthy under his wing and instructed him in how to release a story just before the press deadlines, so that reporters wouldnt have time to ask for rebuttals . Even more importantly Nichols advised McCarthy that he should avoid using phrases such as card-carrying and relace them with communist `sympathisers or loyalty risk which did not require as much prove of their involvement with Communist Parties .

- Pearl Harbor - 1,444 words

Roosevelt. In a purely artificial chess game Roosevelt sacrificed over 2400 American Seamen's lives, thanks to his power as Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces. By over-looking the obvious facts of an attack by Japan on Pearl Harbor, Roosevelt was able to control both the political and economic systems of the United States. Most of American society before the Pearl Harbor bombing believed in the idea of i ...

- The Marshall Plan - 1,539 words

After barely surviving the Nazi threat, Europe was now faced with the threat of Soviet communism and expansion. This new threat divided the continent into pro-West ...

Truman: An Exemplar Of Leadership Running Head: TRUMAN Truman: an Exemplar of Leadership NUR 6101 Bev Holland Seattle Pacific University Truman: an Exemplar of Leadership Many Americans think of Harry S. Truman as the Missouri farmer who became president, defied convention by speaking his mind, and retired to a life of quiet gentility in his hometown of Independence, Missouri. Truman and his presidency, however, were much more complex. As depicted by McCullough, Truman, though the first president of the nuclear era, was fundamentally a throwback to the 19th century. Truman's central values included honesty, integrity and humility. His nature was to be self-effacing. These characteristics are ...
