The great Pierpont Morgan by Frederick Lewis Allen( Book )

60 editions published between 1949 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A surprisingly sympathetic biography of J.P. Morgan. He was a steadying force in the marketplace, especially in the area of the railroads where the competition was cut-throat. The author tells of cases where Morgan would re-acquire ownership of a Railroad at a loss, because Morgan thought the owner was not running it correctly. Time and again Morgan would risk money to uphold his business principals often losing money in the deal. Eventually in later years the government stepped in with their regulatory agencies and performed much the same task that Morgan was performing. The author gives some personal insights such as his style of art collecting and his lifestyle

16 editions published between 1987 and 2012 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jazz, flappers, flasks, rumbleseats, and raccoon coats; Mah Jong, crossword puzzles, marathon dancers, and flagpole sitters; Red Grange, Rudolph Valentino, and Lucky Lindy. These were the catch words of the roaring, irrepressible '20's. But so were the Boston Police Strike, the K.K.K., women's suffrage, Sigmund Freud, Sacco and Vanzetti, Teapot Dome, Black Tuesday. In this span between armistice and depression, Americans were kicking up their heels, but they were also bringing about major changes in the social and political structure of their country. Only Yesterday is a penetrating biography of this restless decade--a reminiscence for those who can remember, a firsthand look for those who've only heard

"In this panorama of the thirties, subtitled 'The 1930's in America', Frederick Lewis Allen combines an eye for the significant trivia of everyday existence with a facility for neatly dissecting the political monoliths of the era. Whether discussing the varieties of bathtub gin or elucidating Keynesian economics, Allen displays, in the words of Edward Weeks of the Atlantic, " 'A talent for terse and telling resume which is the envy of any historian' "--Container

Three popular histories of 20th-century America : Frederick Lewis Allen by Frederick Lewis Allen( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three acclaimed chronicles of American life from a New York Times-bestselling author with a "style that is verve itself" (The New York Times). In these three popular histories of America-collectively ranging from the turn of the century through the 1930s-Frederick Lewis Allen confirms his reputation as one of the most influential journalists of the twentieth century and a "diligent and perceptive reporter" (Forbes). Only Yesterday: Allen's bestselling account of the Roaring Twenties begins at the end of World War I and continues through Prohibition, the Big Red Scare, and the stock market crash of 1929. Originally published in 1931, the definitive account of twentieth-century America combines the immediacy of firsthand experience with clear-cut analysis. This iconic history sold over half a million copies in its first year of publication, reaching commercial and critical success unheard of during the Depression. Since Yesterday: Allen's bestselling follow-up to Only Yesterday begins with America's plunge into the Great Depression. With wit and empathy, Allen chronicles the 1930s from the Lindbergh kidnapping to the New Deal, from bank closures and devastating dust storms to the rise of Benny Goodman and our mass escape to the movies. The Lords of Creation: Allen's history of American finance from the Reconstruction Era to the start of the Great Depression is a fascinating story of bankers, railroad tycoons, steel magnates, and robber barons. From the unprecedented corporate expansion that followed the Civil War, Allen traces a path of innovation and exploitation that put America's fortunes in the hands of the Rockefellers, Fords, Vanderbilts, and other wealthy industrialists who set the stage for the most devastating financial collapse in history
