Eleanor Roosevelt : a personal and public life by J. William T Youngs( Book )

15 editions published between 1984 and 2000 in English and held by 1,586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To those who met them casually, American women seemed a favored species. Again and again European travelers commented on the elevated status of the ladies they encountered in their voyages in the United States. Held in respect, relieved of contact with brutal necessities, allowed to expand their minds, independent guardians of the culture - these were the conventional descriptions. True, a surprisingly large percentage of them labored for a livelihood, and female wage earners were no better off than their male counterparts. As the nineteenth century drew to a close, the number who worked at home or in factories steadily increased. But women of the middle classes were the pampered darlings of the society - elevated on pedestals away from the cares of the workaday world and guarded against all unpleasantness. One of them was Eleanor Roosevelt, daughter of a well-to-do family, bearer of a distinguished name, favored by fortune every respect. But sooner or later she had to confront a problem others did not: what to do with herself
Truth in history by Oscar Handlin( Book )

47 editions published between 1979 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 1,583 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Truth in history teaches how to read, how to analyze, how to discriminate. It is as helpful to the reader whose history is created daily in the news as it is to the professional historian whose field is in a crisis of disarray. Oscar Handlin instructs his readers in the fundamentals of his field. He tells us how to deal with evidence, how to discern patterns amid flux, how to situate ourselves in history, and how to recognize where fact shades subtly into opinion. As he pursues broad definitions of history and its uses, he also attends to specific subjects, showing how they bear directly on each other and on his concerns. --Book jacket

Eli Whitney and the birth of American technology by Constance McLaughlin Green( Book )

10 editions published between 1956 and 1997 in English and held by 1,468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A series of specific challenges led Eli Whitney to exercise his ingenuity in technology and made him an engineer. His cotton gin revolutionized Southern agriculture. And the problems of manufacturing large quantities of guns drove him to develop principles important in his own time, and even more important later. The application of those principles would one day give American industry the structure within which it more than fulfilled the ambitions of the Revolutionary generation. This is the absorbing story Constance Green has told through a skillful mingling of personal narrative and technological analysis. - Editor's preface
