New world coming : the 1920s and the making of modern America by Nathan Miller( Book )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 1,073 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To an astonishing extent, the 1920s resemble the turn of the twenty-first century; in many ways that decade was a precursor of modern excesses. Bookended by the easy living of the Jazz Age, when the booze and money flowed seemingly without end, and the crash of '29 that led to breadlines and suffering, the images of the 1920s include jazz, bootleggers, flappers, talkies, the Model T Ford, Babe Ruth, Charles Lindbergh. But it was also the era of the hard-won vote for women, racial injustice, censorship, widespread social conflict, and the birth of organized crime. As unprecedented economic prosperity and sweeping social change dazzled the public, the sensibilities and restrictions of the nineteenth century vanished, and America became, for the first time, thoroughly modernized. There is hardly a dimension of our present world that doesn't trace its roots to the 1920s, and few decades are more intriguing or significant today.--From publisher description

The Roosevelt chronicles by Nathan Miller( Book )

5 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 1,052 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few of America's first families have guided the course of a nation as decisively as the Roosevelts. Patriots and poltroons, inventors and country squires, reformers and machine politicians, saints and sinners--Nathan Miller tells the story of those self-made aristocrats whose personal stamp has reflected and influenced America for three hundred years. They were the mirror of their day and their ancestry attests to that fact: from Dutch peasant farmers whose rustic beginnings planted the seeds of greatness, to prosperous fur traders whose descendants, by 1776, were members of the provincial congress voting for resolutions supporting independence and then ratifying the Constitution. Here too is the story of the Roosevelt women--making "good marriages," moving upward amid the powerful and prominent New York families--securing for themselves a destiny that would make the twentieth century the "Age of the Roosevelts." Making use of documents never published before, Miller presents a sweeping panorama of an American dynasty. --From publisher description

Broadsides : the age of fighting sail, 1775-1815 by Nathan Miller( Book )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 715 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written with a sense of adventure and teeming with detail, Broadsides not only clearly reconstructs the naval battles of the era, but integrates them with the political and social forces that shaped our world. Broadsides also provides a textured look at the lives of the men and - in an astonishing number of cases - the women who served in the swift-sailing frigates and mighty ships of the line. Based on exhaustive research drawn from log books, official reports, letters, and memoirs, Miller presents an irresistible, brilliant exploration of the Age of Fighting Sail. The result is a adventure in which the steadfastness of those serving at sea in that long-ago era have much to teach us in the modern age."--Jacket

Stealing from America : a history of corruption from Jamestown to Reagan by Nathan Miller( Book )

5 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 585 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Insider trading, pork-barrel projects, and corrupt politicians may all sound distinctly contemporary, but, as Nathan Miller shows in this boisterous romp through the fetid underbelly of history, larceny and greed crossed the ocean with smallpox, prospered gloriously in the New World, and have become a perennial bedrock of American political life. In colonial New York and Charleston, governors extended an open hand to pirates that was gladly filled in exchange for a safe
The founding finaglers by Nathan Miller( Book )

3 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Corruption is as American as apple pie. From the Founding Fathers to the daily headlines, it runs through American history like a scarlet thread. Most Americans prefer to ignore the fact that the grafting politician, the corrupt business tycoon, and the crooked labor baron are prominent fixtures in their national folklore. But long before Watergate and its accompanying horrors, the people of the United States have been alternately chagrined and entertained by the venality of their elected leaders. In The Founding Finaglers, journalist Nathan Miller re-creates this fascinating series of spectacular schemes and colorful personalities, beginning with the first American settlement and continuing through Watergate. Graft and chiseling were old hat to those who settled the English colonies in America in the seventeenth century. Officials of the Crown were paid inadequate salaries and made up for it in gratuities and bribes. Peerages and titles were for sale to the highest bidder. In fact, the title of baronet was invented simply to be sold. Royal governors sold off the most valuable lands in their colonies and pocketed the proceeds. In 1617 Samuel Argall, the governor of Jamestown, appropriated most of the colony's supplies and crops and sold them for his own profit. Another of these notorious offenders was Governor Benjamin Fletcher of New York, who was in league with the pirates prowling American waters and shared in their loot. Miller goes on to unveil George Washington's finesse as a land speculator, how corruption helped bring about the American Revolution, the variety of "opportunities" that came along with America's Westward expansion, the Credit Mobilier scandal involving two vice-presidents and several congressmen, the Whiskey Ring in which President Ulysses S. Grant's own secretary was implicated, and the gold panic conspiracy that entangled Grant himself. But wholesale corruption went beyond the federal government. The entire Georgia legislature was bribed by one gang of looters who made off with the Yazoo claim--which became the states of Alabama and Mississippi. And in New York, Boss Tweed stole over $200 million from the city within a few years. The Founding Finaglers is the story of foul play in America--one that most history books fail to recount. It entertainingly reveals a seldom-seen side of the American character and provides insight and perspective on the scandals that continue to taint every level of government.--Fom dust jacket
