"David Chalmers' widely acclaimed overview of the 1960s describes how the civil rights movement touched off a widening challenge to traditional values and arrangements. Chalmers recounts the judicial revolution that set national standards for race, politics, policing, and privacy. He examines the long, losing war on poverty and the struggle between the media and the government over the war in Vietnam. He follows feminism's "second wave" and the emergence of the environmental, consumer, and citizen action movements. And he explores the worlds of rock, sex, and drugs, and the entwining of the youth culture, the counterculture, and the American marketplace."--Amazon.com

The social and political ideas of the muckrakers by David Mark Chalmers( Book )

18 editions published between 1964 and 1984 in English and held by 1,048 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the first decade of the twentieth century, a small group of professional journalists flooded the popular magazines with detailed exposés of the corruption that had accompanied the growth of industry and the development of a business society in the United States. They examined almost all aspects of American life and paved the way for the reforms of the Progressive Era. This book carefully studies what each one had to say. All of them developed definite explanations for the crisis, and each of them suggested what might be done about it. The free institutions of the nation were being menaced by the growth of concentrated economic power and the spreading web of commercialism which came with it. The journalists agreed that the fault came from the fact that the profit motive had become enthroned in America and business had become the dominant national institution, because the development of corporate wealth-seeking had outstripped the national legislative and moral awareness. Out of their work emerges a fascinating picture of American life during the turn of the century and the First World War.--From publisher description

"While focused on the Klan's activities in the twentieth-century, Backfire also looks beyond the abuses of the past.

Tarbell's story, serialized by McClure's from 1902 to 1904, recounts the history of John D. Rockefeller's company. The first major industrial monopoly in the U.S., Standard Oil was, in 1901, the largest corporation in the country, and at its peak controlled as much as eighty-five percent of oil refining in America. But with all his wealth and power, Rockefeller could not protect himself from Tarbell. Her story of the company, which became a model for investigative journalists, placed the blame for increasingly commercialized American ideals and materialistic values at Rockefeller's doorstep

History of the Standard Oil Company : Briefer Version by David M Chalmers( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Muckrakers - a term coined in 1906 by President Theodore Roosevelt - referred to American journalists, novelists and critics who, in the early 20th century, attempted to expose corruption in politics and the abuses of big business. One publication spearheading these exposés was McClures Magazine, and Ida Tarbell was the writer whose dramatic revelations eventually lead to effective regulation of the Standard Oil Company. Her story, serialized by McClure's in 1902 and 1903, tells the history of John D. Rockefeller's company. The first major industrial monopoly in the U.S., Standard Oil, in 1901, was the largest corporation in the country, and at its peak, controlled as much as eighty-five percent of oil refining in America. But with all his wealth and power, Rockfeller could not protect himself from Tarbell. Her story of the company, which became a model for militant journalists in the future, managed to place the blame for increasingly commercialized American ideals and practical behavior at Rockefeller's doorstep. Combining descriptions of his business practices with his personal characteristics and even his physical appearance, Tarbell created an image of a cunning and ruthless person - a picture that not even decades of Rockefeller philanthropy were able to dispel. This edition (the "briefer version" of her book; the original was more than 800 pages.) makes a great muckraking classic much more accessible to readers. As such, it will be invaluable to students and teachers of American economic history and a fascinating read for anyone interested in the muckraking era and the days of unregulated big business
