FDR's fireside chats by Franklin D Roosevelt( Book )

7 editions published between 1992 and 2010 in English and held by 1,121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On thirty-one occasions during his presidency, FranKlin Delano Roosevelt went on the radio to talk things over with the people of the United States. Those fireside chats, characterized by a disarming frankness and an informal and conversational tone, represent an unprecedented presidential attempt to achieve intimacy with the nation. The American people listened, gathered around their radios in living rooms and kitchens across the country, as President Roosevelt discussed virtually every major problem facing the United States at home and abroad--including both the gravest domestic struggle since the Civil War and perhaps the most serious foreign crisis in the nation's history. In the fireside chats the president touched upon all of the issues surrounding the depression and the New Deal, and upon the events, fears, and hopes that were part of the American experience of World War I. Editors Russell D. Buhite and David W. Levy have gathered the fireside chats together for the first time in a single volume and, by careful attention to recordings and stenographic reports, present the speeches exactly as Roosevelt spoke them. A general introduction discusses the importance of Roosevelt in American political history, the rise of the radio as a political tool, and the way Roosevelt, aided by speech writers and advisers, prepared and delivered the chats. Issues of the day are explored in two additional introductory essays--one describing the domestic situation Roosevelt confronted as he entered the White House in March 1933; the other surveying the international scene during the late 1930s, when Hitler, Mussolini, and the Japanese militarists propelled the world toward a catastrophic war. To read the fireside chats a half century after they were delivered is to reenter a world of economic disaster, social reform, and international danger. It is also to hear, once again, the voice of one of the most skilled speakers and trusted leaders in American history
The debate over Vietnam by David W Levy( Book )

13 editions published between 1991 and 1995 in English and held by 938 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the years after World War II, American foreign policy pursued ideals of justice, freedom, and democracy while seeking at the same time national security and the containment of international communism. In The Debate over Vietnam, David Levy examines the bitter national discussion that eventually raged over the propriety, the necessity, and the morality of that involvement
Herbert Croly of the New republic : the life and thought of an American progressive by David W Levy( Book )

12 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in English and held by 659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is the first full-length biography of Herbert Croly (1869-1930), one of the major American social thinkers of the twentieth century. David W.

Originally published in 1984. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to

Mark Twain : the divided mind of America's best-loved writer by David W Levy( Book )

4 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the publisher. The life and writings of a beloved American writer illuminate the Gilded Age and reveal his ambivalence toward the changes wrought by industry and wealth. Like the steamboat on which Mark Twain adopted his pen name, the industrial growth that swept America in the latter half of the nineteenth century prompted Americans to react variously with delight, awe, fear, excitement for the future, and nostalgia for a simpler time. David Levy's biography places Mark Twain and his work in the context of sweeping societal changes: westward expansion, the Civil War, American imperialism, the end of slavery and start of a new chapter in race relations, and the advances and excesses of the Gilded Age
