Socialism in America: from the Shakers to the Third International; a documentary history by Albert Fried( Book )

20 editions published between 1970 and 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most studies of socialism in America have regarded it as an alien movement imported from Europe. Here, for the first time, is a documented history that establishes it as an integral, and neglected, part of the American past. "America in the course of its history," compiler Albert Fried writes in his introduction, "called forth a variety of socialisms: communitarian, both religious and secular; Marxist; Anarcho-Communist; Christian. What animated these socialisms, what underlay their enormous differences--and why it is proper to bring them under the same rubric--was their conviction that each person's obligation to society as a whole was the absolute condition of his equality; that society was a brotherhood, not a collection of strangers drawn together by interest; that the individual derived his highest fulfillment from his solidarity with others, not from the pursuit of advantage and power. Whatever their persuasion, all Socialists regarded the opposition of self and society as a false one, reflecting the prevailing ethic of greed and domination. All envisioned an end, really a return to the beginning, in the form of either the perfect community, or the Kingdom of Heaven, or the cooperative commonwealth, each the realization of the promise of America." Fried details the history of these socialist movements, and supplements his account with generous selections, most of them never before reprinted, drawn from the astonishingly rich vein of native socialist literature--from the Shakers, the followers of Owen and Fourier, and the early German Marxists through Laurence Gronlund, Edward Bellamy, William Dean Howells, Eugene V. Debs, Morris Hillquit, "Big Bill" Haywood, and the first American apostles of twentieth century Communism.--From publisher description

FDR and his enemies by Albert Fried( Book )

10 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 997 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Albert Fried brings out the tremendous drama in Roosevelt's ideological and personal struggle with five influential men: ex-New York governor and presidential candidate Al Smith, the enormously popular "radio priest" Charles E. Coughlin, Louisiana Senator Huey Long, labor champion John L. Lewis, and the universally adored aviator Charles A. Lindbergh. FDR and His Enemies reveals the intellectual, moral, and tactical underpinnings of the great debate in which Roosevelt triumphed."--Jacket
McCarthyism : the great American Red scare : a documentary history( Book )

6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 783 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing upon a rich selection of documents, this text provides a detailed account of McCarthyism and the American Red Scare, a period which spanned from the late 1940s to the mid 1960s. It discusses the turbulent years during which Americans were routinely persecuted because they were suspected of being insufficiently patriotic or too sympathetic to the Soviet Union. The persecution took various forms, from imprisonment to the purging and blacklisting of untold thousands. Fried demonstrates how the end result was to consign the American radical left to irrelevancy, helping to ensure that already established policies, both foreign and domestic, would remain unchallenged. Fried provides informative introductions and head notes for each section, as well as a useful bibliography. Through speeches, executive orders, congressional hearings, court decisions, official reports, letters, memoirs, and essays, this text offers the most sweeping and comprehensive look at McCarthyism, highlighting the cruelty, poignancy, and absurdity of this extraordinary period of time. Documenting both the persecuted and the persecutors, this is the definitive reader and core text for courses on McCarthyism, and an ideal supplement for courses on American history and political science

Beginning with a few lines written in a school notebook, the selections range from his first short political speeches, position papers delivered to various audiences, the last debate with Douglas to the great Presidential address and the second inaugural. The Gettysburg address is reproduced in his own handwriting. Many of the problems and issues that faced Abraham Lincoln challenge us today.
