The crisis : the president, the prophet, and the Shah-- 1979 and the coming of militant Islam by David Harris( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 945 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A quarter century ago, a group of Iranian students swept into the United States embassy in Tehran, overpowering the Americans there and taking them hostage. The crisis that ensued would define the Carter presidency and help give rise to the Reagan administration. It would begin as a rebellion against one brutal dictator and end with another in place. It was the turning point, the moment when radical Islam first rose up against America--the beginning of a clash that continues to define our times today. The author's narrative races from Washington to Tehran to Paris to Panama, tracking a dying Shah, a flailing Carter, an ascending Khomeini, the disastrous Desert One rescue attempt, and the lives of the Americans held in blindfolds amid a revolution like none other.--From publisher description

The last stand : the war between Wall Street and Main Street over California's ancient redwoods by David Harris( Book )

7 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fight begins when the Pacific Lumber Company, operated by the Murphy family since 1904, with a strong tradition of both employee care and selective cutting of the last privately held redwood forest in America, is bought out by the huge Texas-based conglomerate Maxxam, Inc. (financed in part by Michael Milken). Eager to cash in on the thousands of acres of valuable lumber, the new owners sharply increase production. When members of the radical environmentalist group Earth First! get involved, strapping themselves to the giant redwoods to halt cutting, the battle becomes explosive. But for all the financial maneuvers, demonstrations, and lawsuits, it's a battle nobody wins

Dreams die hard by David Harris( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This book is the story of three men who, as friends and opponents, fought the battles of the idealistic '60s. Allard Lowenstein, quintessential liberal and architect of the celebrated "Dump Johnson" campaign, Dennis Sweeney, one-time protege of Lowenstein's and heroic figure in the Mississippi civil rights struggle, and author Harris, also a Lowenstein protege as well as draft-resisting Stanford student body president, made up the distinctive strands of that long-ago time when dreams of a better world and the notion that one person could make a difference moved a generation to take matters into its own hands. On March 14, 1980, in the grip of a paranoid schizophrenic fantasy, Sweeney walked into Lowenstein's Manhattan law office and shot his former mentor to death. This murder prompted Harris to look back across the years, to trace the scars of the battles, to remember who they had all been and how it had come to such an end. - Back cover
