It is the decade of Joe McCarthy and the young Martin Luther King, the Korean War and Levittown, Jack Kerouac and Elvis Presley." "Halberstam not only gives us the titans of the age - Eisenhower, Dulles, Oppenheimer, MacArthur, Hoover, and Nixon - but also Harley Earl, who put fins on cars; Dick and Mac McDonald and Ray Kroc, who mass-produced the American hamburger; Kemmons Wilson, who placed his Holiday Inns along the nation's roadsides; U-2 pilot Francis Gary Powers; Grace Metalious, who wrote Peyton Place; and "Goody" Pincus, who led the team that invented the Pill. Here is a portrait of a time of conflict, at once an age of astonishing material affluence and a period of great political anxiety." "We follow, among other things, the quickening pace of American life and the powerful impact of national television, still in its infancy, on American society: from the Kefauver hearings to I Love Lucy to Charles Van Doren and the quiz-show scandals to the young John Chancellor of NBC covering the Little Rock riots and holding up a disturbing mirror to America."--Jacket+-+1884544995409516ocn137324872book20070.20Halberstam, DavidThe coldest winter : America and the Korean WarPulitzer-winning historian Halberstam first decided to write this book more than thirty years ago and it took him nearly ten years. It stands as a lasting testament to its author, and to the fighting men whose heroism it chronicles. Halberstam gives us a full narrative of the political decisions and miscalculations on both sides, charting the disastrous path that led to the massive entry of Chinese forces near the Yalu, and that caught Douglas MacArthur and his soldiers by surprise. He provides vivid portraits of all the major figures--Eisenhower, Truman, Acheson, Kim, and Mao, and Generals MacArthur, Almond, and Ridgway. He also provides us with his trademark narrative journalism, chronicling the crucial battles with reportage of the highest order. At the heart of the book are the stories of the soldiers on the front lines who were left to deal with the consequences of the dangerous misjudgments and competing agendas of powerful men.--From publisher description+-+3713331325338930ocn047364093book20010.23Halberstam, DavidWar in a time of peace : Bush, Clinton, and the generals"More than twenty-five years ago Halberstam told the riveting story of the men who conceived and executed the Vietnam War. Today the author has written another chronicle of Washington politics, this time exploring the complex dynamics of foreign policy in post-Cold War America." "Halberstam evokes the internecine conflicts, the untrammeled egos, and the struggles for dominance among the key figures in the White House, the State Department, and the military. He shows how the decisions of men who served in the Vietnam War - such as General Colin Powell and presidential advisers Richard Holbrooke and Anthony Lake - and those who did not have shaped American politics and policy makers (perhaps most notably, President Clinton's placing, for the first time in fifty years, domestic issues over foreign policy)."--Jacket+-+8878778925335525ocn013861133book19860.25Halberstam, DavidThe reckoningCompares and contrasts two companies, Ford and Nissan, from the founders and owners right down to the men on the assembly line333632ocn004641874book19790.27Halberstam, DavidThe powers that beHistoryAn inside history of four of Americas̕ greatest media institutions: Time Incorporated, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, and CBS+-+7694157075299317ocn040305631book19990.20Halberstam, DavidPlaying for keeps : Michael Jordan and the world he madeHistoryBiographyExamines the epic career of basketball superstar Michael Jordan, discussing the forces in his life that have led him to pursue excellence in all his endeavors, whether on the court or off+-+4710694215276918ocn036856852book19980.24Halberstam, DavidThe childrenHistoryBiographyTells the story of eight young people who, inspired by workshops on nonviolence, decided to become involved in the fight against segregation during the 1960s, beginning with staged sit-ins at Nashville lunch counters, and progressing to ever more dangerous actions on behalf of the civil rights movements+-+5610694215273913ocn049763062book20020.18Halberstam, DavidFirehouseThis book is about Engine 40, Ladder 35, located on the West Side of Manhattan near Lincoln Center.

In this book, journalist Halberstam explores the nuances of both the game and the man behind it. Halberstam writes. "There was, I thought, a certain signature to a Belichick game ... I was fascinated ... by the fact that he seemed so un-coachlike, or perhaps the prototype for a very different kind of modern coach in what is an increasingly complicated game. He wasn't in any way charismatic, and he made no attempt to be charismatic--if anything, quite the reverse, but he always seemed to be one step ahead of everyone else." Set apart by his Wesleyan education, Belichick approaches coaching differently than anyone else in the NFL.
