James K. Polk by John Seigenthaler( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 1,468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the summer of 1844, James K. Polk's political career was in ruins. As the Democratic National Convention approached, Polk had thought himself assured of the vice presidential nomination, but the presidential front-runner, former president Martin Van Buren, had made it clear that he had little interest in him. Van Buren was on a mission to regain the White House, which he had lost in 1840, and he needed a strong running mate. Polk had three strikes against him. First, Polk had been unable to deliver his and Andrew Jackson's home state of Tennessee in 1840, while Polk was governor. Second, he was fresh from having lost the governor's mansion - for a second time. And third, Van Buren - as well as the Whigs' candidate, Henry Clay - had just taken a stand against the annexation of Texas, whereas Polk had come out in its favor." "But as the delegates assembled in Baltimore, Polk perceived a wave of public sentiment in favor of bringing Texas into the Union, and he rode that wave all the way to the nomination and eventually the White House - the first "dark horse" candidate to do so. Congress soon annexed Texas, and Polk continued to look west, becoming the champion of what was known as "manifest destiny." He settled the disputed Oregon boundary with Great Britain, extending U.S. territory to the Pacific Ocean, and waged war on Mexico in hopes of winning California and New Mexico. The considerably smaller American army never lost a battle, and the southwest territories became part of the United States in 1848." "At home, however, Polk suffered a political firestorm of antiwar attacks, particularly from the Whigs. Despite tremendous accomplishments in just four years - from pushing the westward expansion to restoring an independent Treasury to ushering in an era of free trade - "Young Hickory" left office feeling the sting of criticism and suffering from a stressful presidency that had taken a heavy physical toll. He died within three months of departing Washington."--Jacket

LBJ vs. the Kennedys : chasing demons( Visual )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With the assassination of President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963, Lyndon Johnson was thrust into the nation's highest office, starting a new chapter in his increasingly bitter feud with the dead president's brother, Robert Kennedy. These two men, who openly despised one another, were now expected to work together to guide the nation through a turbulent time. LBJ vs. THE KENNEDYS: CHASING DEMONS goes inside the oval office to tell the complete story of this strained relationship, using never-before-heard oral histories and LBJ's White House telephone recordings. See how the Kennedys saw Johnson as a threat to the New Frontier, while Johnson maintained a deep-seated fear of being overshadowed by the Kennedys and their quest to preserve the increasingly mythologized legacy of JFK. Johnson's fear was made worse by J. Edgar Hoover, whose secret files, break-ins, and phone taps served to fuel LBJ's paranoia."--Publisher's website

Patterns of change within the publishing industry by Frank John Sirianni( Book )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This is one of several papers presented at a Federal Trade Commission Symposium on Media Concentration. It reviews the controversy between book publishers and the Authors Guild concerning the control of already published materials and the future of publishing, and it analyzes the market structure in order to put the issues into perspective. Some of the reported findings concerning the market structure indicate that: the major shift in concentration in book publishing occurred between 1958 and 1963; the four largest publishers control only 16% of the market, but the first four firms in the mass paperback submarket control an estimated 59% of the market; none of the seven major paperback firms is an independent enterprise; and the top 50 firms have considerably increased their share of the market over the last two decades. A series of connected research questions are suggested: (1) the analysis of the structure of the market and the relations between firms needs to be extended to all subfields in the industry and, where applicable, to suppliers, wholesalers, etc.; (2) a major hypothesis emerging is that there are a number of specifiable advantages of bigness; and (3) a thorough analysis of mergers and acquisitions in which publishing houses have participated since World War ii combined with an evaluation of the life cycle of new and independent firms is required.
