The contender, Richard Nixon : the Congress years, 1946-1952 by Irwin F Gellman( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 887 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Even during the incredible success of Nixon's Congress years there are occasional lapses of judgment. But, as Gellman shows, it was innocence and energy - not deceit - that made a fresh-faced Richard Nixon the victor against great odds in contest after contest. Here are the triumphs of the early years of a young man that we can unabashedly admire

The President and the Apprentice : Eisenhower and Nixon, 1952-1961 by Irwin F Gellman( Book )

8 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 585 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More than half a century after Eisenhower left office, the history of his presidency is so clouded by myth, partisanship, and outright fraud that most people have little understanding of how Ike's administration worked or what it accomplished. We know-or think we know-that Eisenhower distrusted his vice president, Richard Nixon, and kept him at arm's length; that he did little to advance civil rights; that he sat by as Joseph McCarthy's reckless anticommunist campaign threatened to wreck his administration; and that he planned the disastrous 1961 Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba. None of this is true. This book reveals a different Eisenhower, and a different Nixon. Ike trusted and relied on Nixon, sending him on many sensitive overseas missions. Eisenhower, not Truman, desegregated the military. Eisenhower and Nixon, not Lyndon Johnson, pushed the Civil Rights Act of 1957 through the Senate. Eisenhower was determined to bring down McCarthy and did so

Roosevelt and Hopkins : an intimate history by Robert E Sherwood( Book )

2 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Thankfully Enigma Books has now brought this landmark back to life."--Peter Zelikow, Foreign Affairs Because it offers a rare insight into the workings of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's wartime diplomacy, this book is the classic account of FDR's foreign policy during World War II, examining how Harry Hopkins, his friend and confidant, became the president's "point man" with Stalin, Churchill, de Gaulle, and other allied leaders. It is the inside history of America's inevitable wartime rise as a great power, written in wonderfully readable prose by White House speechwriter and prize-winning playwright Robert Sherwood

The contender : Richard Nixon, the Congress years, 1946-1952, with a new preface by Irwin F Gellman( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The definitive account of Richard Nixon's congressional career, back in print with a new preface Unsurpassed in the fifteen years since its original publication, Irwin F. Gellman’s exhaustively researched work is the definitive account of Richard Nixon’s rise from political unknown to the verge of achieving the vice-presidency. To document Nixon’s congressional career, Gellman combed the files of Nixon’s 1946, 1948, and 1950 campaigns, papers from the executive sessions of the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC), and every document dated through 1952 at the Richard Nixon Library.   This singular volume corrects many earlier written accounts. For example, there was no secret funding of Nixon’s senate campaign in 1950, and Nixon won universal praise for his evenhandedness as a member of HUAC. The first book of a projected five-volume examination of this complex man’s entire career, this work stands as the definitive political portrait of Nixon as a fast-rising young political star
