Joseph P. Kennedy : the mogul, the mob, the statesman, and the making of an American myth by Ted Schwarz ( Book )
6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 900 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"How far would the brash and ambitious young son of an Irish Catholic saloonkeeper go to prove himself the equal of Boston's disdainful Protestant elite? Joe Kennedy's ruthless and relentless quest for money, power, and above all, social status, began in his early childhood and continued through the final days of his life. This portrait of the man who sired three of America's most important twentieth-century political figures introduces a wealth of new information about Kennedy's questionable financial practices, his Hollywood exploits, his tenure as ambassador to Great Britain, and his very risky relationship with organized crime."--BOOK JACKET

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 646 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Freedom of speech and freedom of the press are guaranteed by the First Amendment. But how are these freedoms to be exercised? How are we to regulate the content of television, the press, movies, music lyrics, art - and now the Internet and the World Wide Web? Whose standards prevail? Whose ethics? Drawing on an astonishing array of famous and infamous examples - from the Washington Post to Geraldo!, from gangsta rap to Barney - to reveal highlights and lowlights in the checkered history of the media, bestselling author Ted Schwarz brings remarkable insight and clarity to this increasingly volatile debate. He probes the hidden practices of contemporary media moguls, the dubious tactics of news gathering and delivery, the soul of televangelism, the decades-long controversy over music lyrics, and the emerging dilemmas of digital communication

In a revelation that will surprise critics who accused the Bush administration of nonchalance, if not outright indifference to the calamity, Brown and his team had run a full-blown simulation of a Category 4 hurricane striking New Orleans fully a year before Katrina came ashore in 2005"--Dust jacket flap
