They made America : from the steam engine to the search engine : two centuries of innovators by Harold Evans( Book )

18 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 2,213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The flourishing of America is the story of an inventive people with a mystic faith in technology, from the early settlers who used windmills as a way of getting water on the Great Plains to the electronic whiz kids of the Internet. Innovation, practical inventiveness, is the main force behind America's preeminence. But there is more to this extraordinary history. Harold Evans traces how the innovators have time and again proved to be democratizers, driven not by greed but by an ambition to be remembered. They translated the nation's political ideals into economic reality."--Jacket
Do I make myself clear? : why writing well matters by Harold Evans( Book )

17 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 1,228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This wise and entertaining guide by one of the great editors of our time offers timeless tools for making meaning clear. Refresh your writing. Unravel convoluted sales talk written to deceive. See through political campaigns erected on a tower of falsehoods. Fake news is but one of the pimples of a literate civilization under siege. Slovenly English! Billions of words come at us every day with unimaginable velocity and shriveled meaning, in social media posts, bloated marketing, incomprehensible contracts, and political language 'designed to make lies sound truthful.' Orwell, of course. The digital era he never glimpsed has had unfortunate effects on understanding. Ugly words and phrases are picked up by the unwary and passed on like a virus. Cryptic assertion supplants explanation and reasoned argument. Muddle and contradiction suffocate meaning. You will write better--and have fun--with the original approaches of an editor experienced in ridding prose of corrupting predators: learn to recognize the infiltrators, the flesh-eaters. and the zombies. But watch, too, as Harry Evans identifies the magic potions mixed by the best of prose writers. He has spent his life clarifying complexities, from the tragic poisoning of thalidomide babies to the urgent files from battlefield reporters and his political histories. Make yourself clear with a trustworthy editor at your side."--Jacket
A convenient hatred : the history of antisemitism by Phyllis Goldstein( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Convenient Hatred chronicles a very particular hatred through powerful stories that allow readers to see themselves in the tarnished mirror of history. It raises important questions about the consequences of our assumptions and beliefs and the ways we, as individuals and as members of a society, make distinctions between 'us' and 'them, ' right and wrong, good and evil. These questions are both universal and particular"--Page 4 of cover

The author, one of the greatest newspaper editors of our time, provides practical examples of how editing and rewriting can make for better communication, even in the digital age. Bestseller. 2017
