Thinking in time : the uses of history for decision-makers by Richard E Neustadt( Book )

23 editions published between 1986 and 2011 in English and held by 2,033 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two professors of government analyze both political disasters and successes of recent decades to provide telling lessons on how to use history to improve decision-making. A dozen case studies are drawn in pungent detail both from the record and from backstage information gained from top officials. Sadly, the authors can safely assume a vast ignorance of history in Washington and the media. They make painfully clear that attention to particulars matters, that marginal improvement is worth seeking, and that a little thought is useful. They repeatedly spell out how to examine a situation to help decide what to do today to improve the prospect for tomorrow. An absorbing book, this would be of great benefit to those in Washington, if only they would heed it. For most libraries.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt by Roy Jenkins( Book )

17 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,739 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Franklin Delano Roosevelt was a statesman whose massive achievements tower over the twentieth century. In a ranking of American presidents, he is rivaled only by George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. He was elected to an unprecedented four terms in office, and his accomplishments in leading the nation through depression and world war resonate to this day." "Roosevelt's presidency was one of the most eventful in U.S. history. He took office in the midst of economic crisis: the stock market had crashed, the banking system had collapsed, and millions of Americans were unemployed. Galvanizing the nation with his 1933 inaugural address and with a flurry of legislation in the First Hundred Days, Roosevelt demonstrated an optimism and resolve that garnered quick support for his administration and for the programs that he called the New Deal. And he was the first president truly to understand the power of the new mass media, rallying the nation through "fireside chats" on the radio and speeches that were the mainstay of movie house newsreels." "Franklin Delano Roosevelt was the dominant president of the twentieth century and helped the United States become the most influential world power. Roy Jenkins's assessment enables us to understand how he accomplished this and why he still stands tall in our estimation today."--Jacket

Saving the Reagan presidency : trust is the coin of the realm by David M Abshire( )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What did the president know, and when did he know it? Once again, only a dozen years after Watergate, the nation faced these troubling questions. Would we see another president forced to resign or be impeached? Could our democracy survive another presidential scandal so soon? As the Iran-Contra affair unfolded, the nation waited tensely for answers." "At this crucial moment, advisors to President Ronald Reagan called home the Ambassador to NATO, David M. Abshire, to serve in the cabinet as Special Counselor. His charge: to assure that a full investigation of the sale of arms to Iran in exchange for freeing American hostages and the subsequent channeling of those funds to Nicaraguan rebels be conducted expeditiously and transparently, thereby restoring the confidence of the nation in the shaken Reagan presidency." "In this book, David M. Abshire for the first time reveals the full behind-the-scenes story of his private meetings with the president, how he and his team conducted this crucial process, his alliance with Nancy Reagan, the role of the Tower Board, and how the Reagan presidency was saved. Abshire's efforts helped Reagan fill the credibility gap created by revelation of the Iran-Contra scandal and thus restored the president's power to lead the nation and its allies toward the end of the Cold War. His unique recollections show the inner workings of the Reagan White House in this critical period: the conflicts with the powerful Chief of Staff Donald Regan, the politically astute First Lady, the involvement of CIA Director William Casey, and Reagan's triumph of personal character to overcome his indiscretion, a feat unmatched by Clinton or Nixon." "Abshire's story casts new light on the episode and draws important lessons about how presidents should respond to unfolding scandals to limit the threat not only to their own reputations but also to national confidence in democratic institutions."--Jacket

"This volume presents Neustadt's previously unpublished memos to Kennedy along with later memos he wrote for Ronald Reagan, Michael Dukakis, and Bill Clinton and advice for the next President of the United States. In this volume, the man Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr., calls "our most brilliant commentator on the Presidency" reveals for the first time how he came to advise the various Presidents-elect and candidates. In addition, editor Charles O. Jones offers a critical analysis of the memos and an insightful bibliographic essay on the relationship between the Neustadt memos and the transition memos that others have written."--Jacket
The swine flu affair : decision-making on a slippery disease by Richard E Neustadt( Book )

19 editions published between 1978 and 2009 in English and held by 647 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1976, a small group of soldiers at Fort Dix were infected with a swine flu virus that was deemed similar to the virus responsible for the great 1918-19 world-wide flu pandemic. The U.S. government initiated an unprecedented effort to immunize every American against the disease. While a qualified success in terms of numbers reached-more than 40 million Americans received the vaccine-the disease never reappeared. The program was marked by controversy, delay, administrative troubles, legal complications, unforeseen side effects and a progressive loss of credibility for public health authorities. In the waning days of the flu season, the incoming Secretary of what was then the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, Joseph Califano, asked Richard Neustadt and Harvey Fineberg to examine what happened and to extract lessons to help cope with similar situations in the future. The result was their report, The Swine Flu Affair: Decision-Making on a Slippery Disease

Les Pouvoirs de la Maison blanche by Richard E Neustadt( Book )

9 editions published between 1964 and 1980 in French and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Excellent ouvrage sur l'exercice du pouvoir aux Etats-Unis sous cinq administrations différentes: celles de Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson et Nixon. L'auteur, fort de plusieurs années d'expérience comme haut fonctionnaire, fait une distinction entre les pouvoirs formels de la Présidence et le "pouvoir d'office". Son analyse de la façon dont chaque Président abordait tel ou tel problème est très intéressante

Pierce, Garfield, Harding, Ford: Lord Bryce asked why relatively obscure figures were often prominently featured in the American presidency. Between Jackson and FDR, U.S. political parties passed over great men because their strong views threatened to remake the parties. The old tradition of "dark horse" nominees, consensus builders on the convention floor, continues with these four compromise choices, selected over better-known figures
