[2] Gar Alperovitz, Martin Sherwin, Ronald Takaki, Howard Zinn, and a number of other historians provide compelling and convincing evidence that Truman and Byrnes withdrew from its Potsdam Proclamation - which defined the terms of Japan's surrender before the bombings - the paragraph that would have assured the Emperor his right to remain on the throne after a Japanese capitulation.

Another highlight of the 2006-07 season ... [cached]

Another highlight of the 2006-07 season featured author Martin J. Sherwin, whose American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer (written with Kai Bird), was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for biography in 2006.

Dr. Sherwin, the Walter S. Dickson Professor of English and American History at Tufts University, traced and analyzed the mercurial life and times of the man widely considered to be the father of the atomic bomb. Rather than focusing primarily on scientific issues, however, Sherwin approached Oppenheimer as a prism through which to understand 20th century American history, including the Manhattan Project and McCarthyism. *
