Mathews -- not only expands historical investigation of race and ethnicity in the South in fresh directions, but also dissects more thoroughly some traditional aspects of the topic. Addressing subjects from the 1830s to the 1990s, all of the essays underscore the constant struggle to define and redefine ethnic boundaries and etiquettes to match changing historical circumstances. Two essays use the history of military activity in the South to offer insights about evolving relationships between whites and Indians

Ford-Carter presidential debate( Visual )

in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The three presidential debates in 1976 marked the first time in 16 years that presidential candidates engaged in general election debates and the first time in which an incumbent president participated. The first debate was devoted to domestic policy, the second to international policy and the third was open to any topic. The debates broke from 1960 tradition by allowing the moderators to ask follow-up questions, and allowed candidate rebuttals and closing statements. Another first was that the debates were broadcast from public places and before an audience instead of being conducted in television studios

Oral history interview with Herman Talmadge, July 15 and 24, 1975 : interview A-0331-1, Southern Oral History Program Collection (#4007) by Herman E Talmadge( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first interview in a three-part series with Herman Talmadge, who served as governor of Georgia from 1948 to 1955 before going to the United States Senate from 1957 until 1981. The son of Governor Eugene Talmadge, Herman Talmadge discusses his early career in politics and his perception of Southern politics during the mid-twentieth century. Talmadge begins the interview by reflecting on his first awareness of political issues when he helped to campaign for his father during the mid-1920s. In discussing his father's political career (Eugene Talmadge first served as the Commissioner of Agriculture in Georgia before serving as governor 1933-1937 and 1941-1943), Talmadge places his father within the changing social and political landscape of Georgia. Following his father's unexpected death in December 1946 just after having been elected governor again that same year, the younger Talmadge was elected by the legislature to fill his father's seat. His election, however, was highly contested and soon became a notorious scandal dubbed the "three governors controversy" (referred to by Talmadge here as the "Two Governors Row"). Although he firmly believed that he had been rightfully placed in office by the General Assembly, Talmadge was forced out of office by a Georgia Supreme Court ruling before returning in 1948, having been elected in his own right. In discussing that initial gubernatorial campaign, as well as his subsequent campaigns, Talmadge emphasizes the importance of his father's legacy in his own political career, the growing importance of race in Southern politics, his thoughts on his political rivals and colleagues, and his relationship with the press. Talmadge also discusses his decision to run for the United States Senate and his growing prominence in national politics during the 1960s and 1970s
Oral history interview with Herman Talmadge, July 29 and August 1, 1975 : interview A-0331-2, Southern Oral History Program Collection (#4007) by Herman E Talmadge( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the second interview in a three-part series with Senator Herman Talmadge of Georgia. In the first interview, Talmadge focused primarily on his early career in politics and his tenure as Governor of Georgia from 1948 to 1955. In this interview, Talmadge shifts his focus to his years in the United States Senate. First elected in 1956, Talmadge had just entered his fourth term at the time the interview was conducted in 1975. Talmadge begins by describing the split in the Democratic Party in 1964. In explaining his belief that there was room for variation and diversity along the conservative-liberal spectrum in both major political parties, Talmadge contends that he never seriously considered leaving the Democratic Party during those years. In addition, Talmadge offers his assessment of key political figures. He compares the leadership styles and accomplishments of presidents Dwight D. Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, and Gerald Ford, and he offers his perception of leaders such as George Wallace, Ralph Nader, George McGovern, and Eugene McCarthy. Throughout the interview, Talmadge pays particular attention to issues of civil rights, the environment, consumerism, and the growing relationship between television and politics. In addition, Talmadge offers his views on the role of federal government, the changing social problems facing Americans during the mid-1970s, and his reaction to the Watergate scandal and its impact on politics
Oral history interview with Herman Talmadge, December 18, 1975 : interview A-0331-3, Southern Oral History Program Collection (#4007) by Herman E Talmadge( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the third interview in a three-part series with Senator Herman Talmadge of Georgia. In this interview, Talmadge offers his reaction to issues in America during the 1970s. He offers his thoughts on the then recent disclosures regarding J. Edgar Hoover's abuse of power and those of the CIA and the FBI. Other topics include President Gerald Ford's pardoning of Richard Nixon, lessons to be learned from the failures of the Vietnam War, and the issue of race in American politics. The remainder of the interview is devoted to looking back on his and his father's political legacies in Georgia. In particular, he discusses why he considered leaving the Senate and running for Governor in 1966; the building of a political coalition from former political rivals and Georgia businessmen; his publication on segregation, You and Segregation; and the lack of personal and professional papers for both him and his father. He concludes the interview with some brief remarks regarding the importance of objectivity in historical analysis
