Summary of Running the World (David J. Rothkopf)

The Committee in Charge of Running the World

Title I of the National Security Act of 1947 created the National Security Council (NSC) consisting of, among others, the President, Vice President and Secretaries of State and Defense. The Act also created the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Central Intelligence Agency. Despite this legal definition, the NSC’s structure is fluid and largely shaped by each President.

Greatness Thrust upon Them

When Harry Truman assumed the Presidency upon the death of Franklin Roosevelt, he was utterly unprepared, given Roosevelt’s policy of keeping information mostly to himself. Yet Truman quickly brought himself up to speed, calling for briefings and reports summarizing the diplomatic problems in Europe. He believed that America had a set of global responsibilities, particularly given the failure to “win the peace” following World War I.
