"The Hero in America, by Dixon Wecter, appeared in 1941, on the eve of our entry into World War II, but now, three decades later, no book could be more relevant--more disturbingly relevant--to our national condition. In 1941, the "heroes" Mussolini and Hitler (along with their brother-hero Stalin, who happened to wind up on our side) dominated Europe and, as though with the morning sun of a new world-day at the back, cast their enormous shadows across the Atlantic. Could we produce a brand of heroism to stand against the apparently invincible, and inevitable European product? So the "Chronicle of Hero-Worship."' as it is called in the subtitle, assessed the heroes of the American past in a context that gave the subject more than academic interest. It was, we may say without much exaggeration, a subject involving life and death. And now, in a time that, among other things, is an age of anti-heroism, as America faces a crisis which is deeper, more inward, and for which no happy issue is guaranteed, we may again say, with even less exaggeration, that this book treats a subject involving the life and death of our society."--The Introduction by Robert Penn Warren

The autobiography of Benjamin Franklin by Benjamin Franklin ( Book )
13 editions published between 1948 and 1969 in English and Undetermined and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Benjamin Franklin's Autobiography ends in 1758, some thirty years before he died. Those three decades included some of the statesman's greatest triumphs, yet instead of including them in his memoir, Franklin spent the years continually revising his original text." "Franklin on Franklin stands as the first autobiographical account of a great American life. By returning to a newly recovered early draft of the Autobiography, author Paul M. Zall strips away later layers of moralizing and revision to reveal the story as Franklin first wrote it: how a poor boy from Boston used hard work and his wits to become America's first world-class citizen. To cover Franklin's career as a diplomat and as the only signatory of all threes key documnents of the American Revolution, Zall interweaves autobiographical comments from Franklin's personal letters and private journals."--Jacket
