Most widely held works by Scott Kaufman
The presidency of James Earl Carter, Jr. by Burton Ira Kaufman( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 569 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Burton Kaufman's book on the Carter years was hailed as the best account of his administration. This new edition probes more deeply into Jimmy Carter's approach to the presidency and the issues that he faced, placing his tenure in that office more squarely in the context of the fundamental changes taking place in America while he served. It features more information on his foreign and environmental policies and expanded coverage of his personal background - both his upbringing and naval career - along with insights into his wife's activist role." "Drawing on Carter's previously unavailable Handwriting File, as well as on new oral histories and Carter's own books, Burton and Scott Kaufman show the ways in which Carter had the opportunity - but failed - to be a successful transitional president for the Democrats. They argue that by the fall of 1978 he had become a more effective leader than during the first part of his presidency but could not undo his earlier mistakes and continued to make serious errors of political judgment."--Jacket
Plans unraveled : the foreign policy of the Carter administration by Scott Kaufman( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While previous monographs have focused on specific foreign policy issues, Scott Kaufman breaks away from the mold and offers this up-to-date, comprehensive look at former President Carter's aggregate foreign policy record. Although many Americans regard Jimmy Carter as the nation's greatest ex-president, Kaufman argues that the diplomatic performance of the thirty-ninth president was mediocre, primarily because of Carter's own doing."--Jacket
Rosalynn Carter : equal partner in the White House by Scott Kaufman( Book )

7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A portrait of an ambitious, brilliant, and hardworking woman. It details the many roles Rosalynn played in support of President Jimmy Carter and also documents the ambivalence of the American public to some of her activities
Confronting Communism : U.S. and British policies toward China by Scott Kaufman( Book )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Confronting Communism, Victor S. Kaufman examines how the United States and Great Britain were able to overcome serious disagreements over their respective approaches toward Communist China. Providing new insight into the workings of alliance politics, specifically the politics of the Anglo-American alliance, the book covers the period from 1948 - a year before China became an area of contention between London and Washington - through twenty years of division to the gradual resolution of Anglo-American divergences over the People's Republic of China beginning in the mid-1960s
Project Plowshare : the peaceful use of nuclear explosives in Cold War America by Scott Kaufman( Book )

14 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inspired by President Dwight D. Eisenhower's 'Atoms for Peace' speech, scientists at the Atomic Energy Commission and the University of California's Radiation Laboratory began in 1957 a program they called Plowshare. Joined by like-minded government officials, scientists, and business leaders, champions of 'peaceful nuclear explosions' maintained that they could create new elements and isotopes for general use, build storage facilities for water or fuel, mine ores, increase oil and natural gas production, generate heat for power production, and construct roads, harbours, and canals
The Pig War : the United States, Britain, and the balance of power in the Pacific Northwest, 1846-72 by Scott Kaufman( Book )

7 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scott Kaufman carefully examines, and places into both an American and an international context, the origins and the resolution of this tense stand-off over contested colonial territory. His story not only reveals a tense dispute between a burgeoning imperial power and a waning empire but also highlights the changing Reconstruction-era U.S. national ideology, foreign diplomacy, and control over foreign markets."--Jacket
Francis Marion : Swamp Fox of South Carolina by Scott Kaufman( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ambition, pragmatism, and party : a political biography of Gerald R. Ford by Scott Kaufman( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Within eight turbulent months in 1974 Gerald Ford went from the United States House of Representatives, where he was the minority leader, to the White House as the country’s first and only unelected president. His unprecedented rise to power, after Richard Nixon’s equally unprecedented fall, has garnered the lion’s share of scholarly attention devoted to America’s thirty-eighth president. But Gerald Ford’s (1913–2006) life and career in and out of Washington spanned nearly the entire twentieth century. Ambition, Pragmatism, and Party captures for the first time the full scope of Ford’s long and remarkable political life. The man who emerges from these pages is keenly ambitious, determined to climb the political ladder in Washington, and loyal to his party but not a political ideologue. Drawing on interviews with family and congressional and administrative officials, presidential historian Scott Kaufman traces Ford’s path from a Depression-era childhood through service in World War II to entry into Congress shortly after the Cold War began. He delves deeply into the workings of Congress and legislative-executive relations, offering insight into Ford’s role as the House minority leader in a time of conservative insurgency in the Republican Party. Kaufman’s account of the Ford presidency provides a new perspective on how human rights figured in the making of U.S. foreign policy in the Cold War era, and how environmental issues figured in the making of domestic policy. It also presents a close look at the 1976 presidential election—emphasizing the significance of image in that contest—and extensive coverage of Ford’s post-presidency. In sum, Ambition, Pragmatism, and Party is the most comprehensive political biography of Gerald Ford and will become the definitive resource on the thirty-eighth president of the United States
