"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."--From the Introduction by Robert Penn Warren

The autobiography by Benjamin Franklin ( Book )
13 editions published between 1948 and 1969 in English and Undetermined and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Famous as a scientist, statesman, philosopher, businessman, and civic leader, Benjamin Franklin was also one of the most powerful and controversial American writers of his time, and has been a subject of intense debate ever since: to Matthew Arnold, he exemplified "victorious good sense"; to D.H. Lawrence, he was "the first dummy American." Franklin's classic Autobiography is his last word on his greatest literary creation -- his own invented persona, the original incarnation of the American success story. For the first time, the authoritative editions of works by major American novelists, poets, scholars, and essayists collected in the hardcover volumes of The Library of America are being published singly in a series of handsome and durable paperback books. A distinguished author has contributed an introduction for each volume, which also includes a detailed chronology of the author's life and career, an essay on the choice of the text, and notes
