On May 14, 1948, the United States became the first nation to recognize the State of Israel under the stewardship of President Harry S. Truman. The most complex and controversial issue of Truman's Presidency, the official recognition of Israel was a watershed moment in American foreign policy.
In their new book, A Safe Haven: Harry S. Truman and The Founding of Israel (HarperCollins), historians Allis Radosh and Ronald Radosh provide a detailed account of the events leading up to the creation of the Jewish homeland, as well as Truman's controversial decision to recognize the state.
Joining the Radoshes to discuss their book were Professor Allen Weinstein, former Archivist of the United States; Professor Avi Beker, Goldman Chair Visiting Israeli Professor at Georgetown University; and Professor Robert Lieber, Professor of Government and International Affairs at Georgetown University. Hudson Senior Fellow Meyrav Wurmser introduced the event.
