The new deal : the depression years, 1933-40 by Anthony J Badger ( Book )
38 editions published between 1988 and 2002 in English and held by 1,267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Anthony Badger's notably successful history is not simply another narrative of the New Deal, nor does the figure of Franklin Roosevelt loom as large in his account as in some others. What Mr. Badger does so well is to consider important aspects of New Deal activity - in industry, organized labor, agriculture, welfare, and politics - and to explore the major problems in assessing the history of each. His book establishes a new standard of interpretation of Roosevelt's New Deal."--BOOK JACKET

FDR : the first hundred days by Anthony J Badger ( Book )
8 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 641 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The hundred days, Franklin Roosevelt's first 15 weeks in office, have become the stuff of legend, a mythic yardstick against which every subsequent American president has felt obliged to measure himself. In FDR: The First Hundred Days, the renowned historian Anthony J. Badger cuts through decades of politicized history to provide a succinct, balanced, and timely reminder that Roosevelt's accomplishment was above all else an exercise in exceptional political craftsmanship. Declaring that Americans had "nothing to fear but fear itself," Roosevelt entered the White House in 1933 confronting approximately 25% unemployment, bank closings, and a nationwide crisis in confidence. Between March 9 and June 16, FDR sent Congress a record number of bills, all of which passed easily. With reforms ranging from the legalization of the sale of beer to mortgage relief for millions of Americans, Roosevelt launched the New Deal that conservatives have been working to roll back ever since. Badger emphasizes Roosevelt's political gifts even as the president and his Brains Trust of advisors, guided by principles, largely felt their way toward solutions to the nation's manifold problems. Reintroducing the contingency that marked those fateful days, Badger humanizes Roosevelt and suggests a far more useful yardstick for future presidents: the politics of the possible under the guidance of principle. - Jacket flap
The making of Martin Luther King and the civil rights movement ( Book )
10 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Traditional civil rights movement history, focusing on well-known leaders such as Martin Luther King and Malcolm X, notable movements such as the NAACP, CORE, SCLC, and SNCC, and on communities located primarily in the deep south, has been only partially successful in identifying the origins of the civil rights movement. The Making of Martin Luther King and the Civil Rights Movement constitutes a challenge to many of the agendas established by civil rights scholarship of the past twenty-five years and offers new insights into the origins, development, representations, and international ramifications of the movement. Collectively, the essays in this volume suggest new ways of thinking about the civil rights movement and its repercussions. The core essays of the volume, written by distinguished scholars such as Clayborne Carson, highlight the importance of black activism in the 1930s and 1940s, not only as practiced by ministers, but also by the NAACP, black professionals, and labor organizers. Innovative chapters comparing experiences in Britain and South Africa reveal the ways in which movement leaders exploited national ideals and familiar language to secure sympathetic responses both at home and abroad, and show how a commitment to nonviolence gave the movement its distinctive cast. The volume effectively challenges accepted notions of "race" and "racial equality" and considers the long-term effects of the struggle on its participants. Tracing the development of African American political though since the 1960s, The Making of Martin Luther King and the Civil Rights Movement offers a new look at the contemporary legacy of the civil rights movement

Media and the presidentialization of parliamentary elections by Anthony Mughan ( )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In theory, parliamentary elections are a contest between political parties whose leaders do not have a separate identity from their party in the public eye. This case study of Britain shows that this theory no longer holds; the dynamics of parliamentary elections have become more 'presidential' in the sense that the leaders of the major parties now figure more prominently on both media coverage of the campaign and in the party that voters choose at the polls. The implications for our understanding of parliamentary democracy are discussed
