That man : an insider's portrait of Franklin D. Roosevelt by Robert H Jackson( Book )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 2,588 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Robert H. Jackson was one of the giants of the Roosevelt era: an Attorney General, a still-revered Supreme Court Justice, and, not least important, one of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's close friends and advisers. His intimate memoir of FDR, written in the early 1950s before Jackson's untimely death, has remained unpublished for fifty years. Here is that newly discovered memoir. Written with skill and grace, this is truly a unique account of the personality, conduct, greatness of character, and common humanity of "that man in the White House," as outraged conservatives called FDR. 'That Man' is not simply a valuable historical document, but an engaging and insightful look at one of the most remarkable men in American history. In reading this memoir, we gain not only a new appreciation for Roosevelt but also admiration for Jackson, who emerges as both a public servant of great integrity and skill and a wry, shrewd, and fair-minded observer of politics at the highest level."--Jacket

The Steel Seizure Case in historical perspective : presidential power in wartime( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Video of a panel of experts brought together in June 2007 by the Historical Society of the District of Columbia Circuit to analyze the Supreme Court's Steel Seizure Case decision and its enduring ramifications. On June 2, 1952, the Supreme Court decided in Youngstown Sheet & Tube Co., v. Sawyer, 343 U.S. 579, that President Truman's seizure of most of the nation's steel mills to avert a nation-wide strike of steelworkers and keep the mills operating during the Korean War was an unauthorized, unconstitutional executive action that could not stand. The steel companies presented their claims initially to the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, which ruled against the Government on all points and issued a preliminary injunction. The Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit promptly stayed the injunction, deeming it best that the issues raised be decided by the Supreme Court

Rehnquist’s Missing Letter: A Former Law Clerk’s 1955 Thoughts on Justice Jackson and <em>Brown</em> by Brad Snyder( )

1 edition published in 2012 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

“I think that Plessy v. Ferguson was right and should be reaffirmed.” That’s what Supreme Court law clerk William H. Rehnquist wrote privately in December 1952 to his boss, Justice Robert H. Jackson. When the memorandum was made public in 1971 and Rehnquist’s Supreme Court confirmation hung in the balance, he claimed that the memorandum reflected Jackson’s views, not Rehnquist’s. Rehnquist was confirmed, but his explanation triggered charges that he had lied and smeared the memory of one of the Court’s most revered justices. This Essay analyzes a newly discovered document—a letter Rehnquist wrote to Justice Felix Frankfurter in 1955, criticizing Jackson—that reveals what Rehnquist thought about Jackson shortly after Brown and the Justice’s death. The 1955 letter was not known during Rehnquist’s 1971 or 1986 confirmation hearings. It is also currently missing and may have been stolen from Frankfurter’s Papers at the Library of Congress. This Essay argues that Rehnquist’s 1955 letter represents his disappointment with Brown and the beginning of his outspoken criticism of the Warren Court. The letter, this Essay contends, says less about how Rehnquist felt about Jackson and more about Rehnquist’s disappointment over his Justice’s role in the most important Supreme Court decision of the twentieth century

That Man An Insider's Portrait of Franklin D. Roosevelt by Robert H Jackson( Recording )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Robert H. Jackson was one of the giants of the Roosevelt era: an Attorney General, a still-revered Supreme Court Justice, and, not least important, one of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's close friends and advisers. His intimate memoir of FDR, written in the early 1950s before Jackson's untimely death, has remained unpublished for fifty years. Here is that newly discovered memoir. Written with skill and grace, this is truly a unique account of the personality, conduct, greatness of character, and common humanity of "that man in the White House," as outraged conservatives called FDR. Jackson simply but eloquently provides an insider's view of Roosevelt's presidency, including such crucial events as FDR's Court-packing plan, his battles with corporate America, his decision to seek a third term, and his bold move to aid Britain in 1940 with American destroyers. He also offers an intimate personal portrait of Roosevelt -- on fishing trips, in late-night poker games, or approving legislation while eating breakfast in bed, where he routinely began his workday. We meet a president who is farsighted but nimble in attacking the problems at hand; principled but flexible; charismatic and popular, but unafraid to pick fights, take stands, and, when necessary, make enemies. [This book] look[s] at one of the most remarkable men in American history. In reading this memoir, we gain not only a new appreciation for Roosevelt but also admiration for Jackson, who emerges as both a public servant of great integrity and skill and a wry, shrewd, and fair-minded observer of politics at the highest level.-Dust jacket
