2018 Truman Book Award featuring Kevin Peraino
"As 1949 unfolded and Mao Zedong's communist forces spread further across China, Harry S. Truman found himself facing a new diplomatic challenge. Truman and his aides scrambled to respond, and their actions ended up yielding an American foreign policy that helped set the trajectory for relations with China for decades to come. Winner of the 2018 Harry S. Truman Book Award, A Force So Swift: Mao, Truman, and the Birth of Modern China, 1949 by veteran foreign correspondent Kevin Peraino, examines the tumultuous year 1949 in a gripping narrative of the Truman administration’s response to the triumph of Mao’s forces. Prior to his book talk, Peraino will be presented with the Truman Library Institute’s Harry S. Truman Book Award. Past recipients of this prestigious biennial award include Dean Acheson, Alonzo Hamby and Wilson D. Miscamble. This program is free and will be preceded by a 6 p.m. wine reception and followed by a book signing.
