FDR and the creation of the U.N. by Townsend Hoopes( Book )

9 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,027 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prizewinning historians Townsend Hoopes and Douglas Brinkley explain how the idea of the United Nations was conceived, debated, and revised, first within the U.S. government and then by negotiation with its major allies in World War II. The experience of the war generated increasing support for the new organization throughout American society, and the U.N. Charter was finally endorsed by the community of nations in 1945. The story largely belongs to President Franklin Roosevelt, who was determined to form an organization that would break the vicious cycle of ever more destructive wars (in contrast to the failed League of Nations), and who therefore assigned collective responsibility for keeping the peace to the five leading U.N. powers - the major wartime Allies
Driven patriot : the life and times of James Forrestal by Townsend Hoopes( Book )

13 editions published between 1992 and 2012 in English and held by 925 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This engrossing biography recounts the life of one of twentieth-century America's most celebrated--though ultimately tragic--public figures, a man who mastered both Wall Street and Washington. James Forrestal was a brilliant financier and military organizer, and he was the first United States Secretary of Defense. Townsend Hoopes and Douglas Brinkley follow Forrestal through his Irish upbringing in upstate New York--he was the son of immigrants--through Princeton University to his success on Wall Street during the Roaring Twenties, to his Gatsbyan life of privilege on Long Island, to his pivotal role in rebuilding the obsolescent U.S. navy during World War II, to his career as the architect of the national security state, and, finally, to his collapse and suicide at the age of fifty-seven. The authors portray Forrestal's large and crucial role in American efforts to complete the military victory of World War II, restore a shattered postwar world, and confront the ominous new Soviet challenge. But they also describe the bitter interservice rivalry over the unification of the armed services, and how the savage attacks on Forrestal by columnists Drew Pearson and Walter Winchell, as well as rebellious navy and air force officers, led to his descent into paranoia and self-destruction. In the end he became prey to hallucinations and distressingly erratic conduct, and was relieved by President Truman from a job that had become his life support system. A few months later he jumped from a window of Bethesda Naval Hospital. Hoopes and Brinkley probe deeply into Forrestal's contradictory inner life--his unfortunate marriage to Josephine Ogden, an intelligent but troubled and willful alcoholic; his cynical attitude toward society and wealth, yet his eagerness to embrace all their trappings; his inability to deal with adversity; his complex, elusive personality, which made it impossible for him to truly love another human being. Interwoven through the text are vivid portraits of Forrestal's contemporaries: Franklin Roosevelt, Admiral Ernest King, Harry S. Truman, George Kennan, Stuart Symington, the bankers Clarence Dillon and Ferdinand Eberstadt

"A member of the WWII generation discovers that his imperative mid-life search for emotional truth and the meaning of love entails painful choice and necessary losses. Set in the years of turbulent transition from the still recognized conventions of the 50s to the dramatic shift in social mores of the 60s, the story plays out in the complex social centrifuge of New York, its affluent suburban precincts and a small seacoast town farther up the New England coastline."--Back cover

Statement by Townsend Hoopes, president, Association of American Publishers : before the Federal Trade Commission seminar on "Concentration in the Media", December 15, 1978, Washington, D.C by Townsend Hoopes( Book )

4 editions published between 1978 and 1980 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is one of several papers presented at a Federal Trade Commission Symposium on Media Concentration. It describes the state of book publishing today and comments on antimerger statements made by the Authors Guild of America. Statistics are cited to show that the number of active book publishers serving national and international markets is greater than ever before in our history, books have never been in more plentiful supply and have never reflected greater diversity of subject matter or treatments, and authors have never been more numerous or better rewarded. Figures are analyzed to show that the 50 largest publishing firms hold only 75% of the market and are highly competitive compared to other industries, where a few companies may dominate the market. It is also noted that book publishing mergers have not reduced the number of competitive companies in the industry, and it is argued, contrary to the fear of the Authors Guild, that large companies can actually take greater risks with unknown authors than can small firms. Subsidiary rights to book club publications of a title are defended as an economic necessity. (Mkm)
