The great Pierpont Morgan by Frederick Lewis Allen( Book )

62 editions published between 1949 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,558 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

Bolʹshie peremeny by Frederick Lewis Allen( Book )

46 editions published between 1952 and 2016 in 11 languages and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The New York Times-bestselling history of the first half of the twentieth century--five decades that transformed America--from the author of Only Yesterday. During the first fifty years of the twentieth century, the United States saw two world wars, a devastating economic depression, and more social, political, and economic changes than in any other five-decade period before. Frederick Lewis Allen, former editor of Harper's magazine, recounts these years--spanning World War I, the Progressive Era, the Great Depression, World War II, and the early Cold War--in vivid detail, from the fashions and customs of the times to major events that changed the course of history. Politically, the United States grew into its own as a global superpower during these years, even as domestic developments altered the everyday lives of its citizens. The introduction of the automobile, mass production, and organized labor changed the way Americans lived and worked, while innovations like penicillin and government regulation of food safety contributed to an increase in average life expectancy from forty-nine years in 1900 to sixty-eight years in 1950. With the development of a strong, centralized government, a thriving middle class, and widespread economic prosperity, the nation emerged from the Second World War transformed in virtually every way. Richly informative and delightfully readable, The Big Change is an indispensable volume charting the many changes that ushered in our contemporary age
Only yesterday : an informal history of the 1920's by Frederick Lewis Allen( )

13 editions published between 1987 and 2012 in English and held by 166 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 fond, witty, penetrating biography of this restless decade-a delightful reminiscence for those who can remember, a fascinating 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
