Most widely held works by Harry S Ashmore
Mission to Hanoi; a chronicle of double-dealing in high places, a special report from the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions by Harry S Ashmore( Book )

15 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 1,294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here is an eye-opening record of how the United States has formulated and conducted its policies on Vietnam. While billions of dollars have been spent and thousands of American lives have been lost, internal dissensions have racked official Washington, and national interest has been tossed to the winds. The authors bluntly indict the President for employing 'rhetorical overkill' in his effort to pursue a hard-line military policy while still professing to seek a negotiated settlement. This penetrating report is the work of two veteran journalists, Harry S. Ashmore (Pulitzer Prize-winning editor and author) and William C. Baggs (editor of the Miami News) whose journeys to North Vietnam at critical junctures in the last two years were authorized by the State Department. Here they recount the events that made them a key link between Washington and Hanoi during the maneuvering that led to the Paris talks, and offer their appraisal of 'an extraordinary exercise in duplicity.' -- from Back Cover

Civil rights and wrongs : a memoir of race and politics 1944-1994 by Harry S Ashmore( Book )

7 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 976 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After fifty years as observer and participant on the front lines of the civil rights movement, Harry Ashmore finds the nation still unable, or unwilling, to face up to the basic issues posed in Gunnar Myrdal's classic An American Dilemma. In this memoir, Ashmore takes up where Myrdal left off in 1944, giving us a retrospective view of the causes and effects of the post-World War II civil rights movement, considering it in the context of the political developments that both advanced and hindered its effectiveness." "As executive editor of the Arkansas Gazette, Ashmore led the fight against Governor Orval Faubus when he closed Little Rock's Central High School in defiance of the Supreme Court's landmark Brown v. Board of Education decision. As the protest by blacks spread across the nation, Ashmore was present at the heart of the action as journalist, academic, foundation executive, and adviser to Presidents Kennedy and Johnson. He has won Pulitzer Prizes for himself and his newspaper and has produced a body of work that makes up a unique chronicle of a turbulent era." "Civil Rights and Wrongs is a powerful and important reappraisal of the American Dilemma by a man who has viewed it from the eye of the storm it has spawned."--Jacket
