The great bull market; Wall Street in the 1920s by Robert Sobel( Book )

9 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 1,034 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wall Street and the stock market were major symbols of the 1920's, and the great crash was considered the end of that era. It is surprising, therefore, that little intensive study has been given to the bull market of the period. Several books have been written on the crash itself but none before has dealt with events leading up to it. The era of the 1920's was one of economic growth, and not merely tinsel and ballyhoo
Coolidge : an American enigma by Robert Sobel( Book )

8 editions published between 1998 and 2015 in English and held by 1,023 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the first full-scale biography of Calvin Coolidge in a generation, Robert Sobel shatters the caricature of our thirtieth president as a silent, do-nothing leader. Sobel delves into the record to show how Coolidge cut taxes four times, had a budget surplus every year in office, and cut the national debt by a third in a period of unprecedented economic growth. Though his list of accomplishments is impressive, Calvin Coolidge was perhaps best known and most respected by his contemporaries for his character. Americans in the 1920s embraced Coolidge for his upstanding character, which came as a breath of fresh air after the scandal-ridden administration of Warren G. Harding. Through research and analysis, Sobel reveals Coolidge's clear record of political successes and delivers the message that Coolidge had for our time - a message that speaks directly to our most important political debates. Coolidge's legacy is his deeds, not his words - which is exactly how he would have chosen to be remembered by history
