Creating the West : historical interpretations, 1890-1990 by Gerald D Nash( Book )

11 editions published between 1990 and 1993 in English and held by 788 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book appears at a time of radical reassessment of what settling the West has meant in American history. Amidst questions now being asked about violence and exploitation as leitmotifs in western history, it is more important than ever to understand historians and their biases. In this interpretive synthesis, a major historian argues that the visions of the West held by successive generations of historians were as important as the historical record in shaping their writings. - Jacket flap

A.P. Giannini and the Bank of America by Gerald D Nash( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This fast-paced biography of Bank of America founder A.P. Giannini affords an intriguing glimpse into the life of one of the world's most creative bankers. In 1904, after a successful career in wholesale produce and real estate in San Francisco's North End, Giannini began building the tiny Bank of Italy into the Bank of America, one of the world's largest financial institutions at the time of his death in 1949. A.P. Giannini's career was central to the development of the early-twentieth-century West. After the San Francisco earthquake of 1906 he was the only banker with funds on hand to finance the rebuilding of the city - because he personally had rescued the contents of his bank vault before the fire reached downtown. When World War I created new markets for California's farmers, shipbuilders, and small manufacturers, Giannini expanded branch banking throughout the state to meet their financial needs. Between the wars he continued to expand throughout the United States and overseas, establishing the West as a financial center independent of eastern financial interests even as the Great Depression threatened his financial empire. Giannini initiated branch banking in the United States and was its chief advocate. To attract the immigrants who were his first depositors, he moved bank officers from splendid isolation upstairs down into the lobby, moved tellers out from behind bars, and expanded banking hours to evenings and the weekend. Always willing to help new industries, he not only financed major motion pictures but also made automobile loans. Throughout his career, Giannini fought and cajoled bank regulators and such industry giants as J.P. Morgan, Jr., to expand bank services to working people throughout the American West and, eventually, the whole United States. Historian Gerald D. Nash presents a full picture of this dynamic western financier, from Giannini's roots in the Italian immigrant community to his personal ties with President Franklin D. Roosevelt. As a teenager working fifteen hours a day for his stepfather's fruit commission business and equally as a seventy-year-old in active "retirement," A.P. showed a remarkable drive to be number one without compromising his honesty or is sympathetic treatment of the "little guy," who, he said, was his gigantic bank's best customer

Privacy, the debate in the United States since 1945 by Philippa Strum( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume argues that privacy was built into the Constitution as originally written and into the Bill of Rights. [The book examines] governmental interference with privacy [and] the extent to which the government has as obligation to protect citizens from violations of their privacy by other citizens - as in the maintenance of computer data banks by private companies. [The book also looks at the] leaps in technology that gave us television, computers, and governmental ability to monitor citizens' lives; [and] concerns about national security as the United States entered the Cold War ...-Introd
Defining visions : television and the American experience since 1945 by Mary Ann Watson( Book )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More than any other aspect of American life, the history of television reveals the story of the reorientation of culture and the shift in American values that occurred after World War II ... It is the premise of this book that in the second half of the twentieth century, TV has been a reflection of the national character and the primary means by which Americans have defined themselves and each other ... The snapshots of programming presented in [the book] have been selected to illustrate a fifty-year panorama of television ... The chapters ... each about a different facet of American life, explore representative evidence that confirms the significance of television as a historical force.-Prologue
