Guns or butter : the presidency of Lyndon Johnson by Irving Bernstein ( Book )
8 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 1,741 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the dark moments after Kennedy's assassination in 1963, to the heady days of legislative victories of 1965, to the bloody crescendo of riots, assassinations, and military battles in 1968, Johnson's administration was a defining moment in modern American history. In Guns or Butter, Irving Bernstein brilliantly captures both the events and the meaning of those momentous years. Aside from its historical value, this book has major current significance. The legislative program Newt Gingrich and his Republican colleagues introduced in 1995 was designed to repeal the Great Society. Before doing so, members of Congress and the interested public should understand Lyndon Johnson's vision and the legislation that was enacted during the sixties. Guns or Butter provides that critical information
Promises kept : John F. Kennedy's new frontier by Irving Bernstein ( Book )
12 editions published between 1991 and 1993 in English and held by 1,697 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A counter-revisionist examination of JFK and his administration, Promises Kept presents a policy history of major domestic legislative efforts between 1961 and 1963. Bernstein focuses on administraive and congressional progress under Kennedy in civil rights, education, taxes, unemployment, Medicare, and the Peace Corps. He persuasively argues that Kennedy was indeed a successful president, showing that many of JFK's campaign promises were well on their way to enactment by the time of his assassination, even after two years of dealings with a balky and often hostile Congress, and the difficulty
Turbulent years; a history of the American worker, 1933-1941 by Irving Bernstein ( Book )
11 editions published between 1969 and 2010 in English and held by 1,329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The second volume of Irving Bernstein's History of the American Worker is concerned with the struggle of labor under the New Deal, 1933-1941. In these years, labor recovered from the early days of the Great Depression and became a dominant force in American politics and society. We see the effect of Franklin Roosevelt's election--and the influence of labor in assuring it; the passage of the National Industrial Recovery Act and its subsequent defeat in the Supreme Court; the rising power of unions and their invasion of new industrial fields, leading to discontent within the A F of L and ultimately to the formation of the CIO. Labor's new weapon, the sit-down strike, is described vividly along with the government's puzzled reaction. The Wagner Act--"labor's charter of liberty"--is traced through its passage and operation. Finally we see the split between Roosevelt and John L. Lewis, leading to Lewis' support of Willkie in the 1940 election. With the attack on Pearl Harbor, American labor's history took a new turn, and with it this volume closes.--From publisher description
