Mister Roberts by Thomas Heggen( Book )
4 editions published in 1946 in English and held by 1,388 libraries worldwide
The novel, Mister Roberts, was an instant hit after being published in 1946 and was quickly adapted for the stage and screen. The title character, a Lieutenant Junior Grade naval officer, defends his crew against the petty tyranny of the ship's commanding officer during World War II. Nearly all action takes place on a backwater cargo ship, the USS Reluctant, that sails, as written in the play, "from apathy to tedium with occasional side trips to monotony and ennui." This irreverent, often hilarious story about the crew of the Reluctant has enjoyed wide and enduring popularity. It was subsequently adapted as a play, a feature film, a television series, and a television movie. The film version with Henry Fonda, James Cagney and Jack Lemmon is one of the most well-known movies of WWII

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 488 libraries worldwide
"The year 2004 marks the 350th anniversary of the first Jewish settlement in America. From Haven to Home celebrates this important occasion by bringing together an eminent group of historians who take stock of American Jewish life, from the arrival of the first small group in Manhattan in 1654 to the present." "The essays are amply illustrated with items from the vast Judaica Americana collections of the Library of Congress, among them letters from presidents Washington and Jefferson to prominent leaders of the American Jewish community, the first Hebrew Bible printed in America, and the first American Yiddish cookbook, as well as selections of photographs, prints, diaries, maps, and sheet music." "In telling the story of diverse groups of Jewish immigrants, who over the centuries made the United States their home, From Haven to Home examines the intertwined themes, and sometimes conflicting aims, of accommodation, assertion, adaption, and acculturation that have characterized the American Jewish experience from its beginnings in 1654 to the present day."--BOOK JACKET
