And the crooked places made straight : the struggle for social change in the 1960s by David Mark Chalmers ( Book )
11 editions published between 1991 and 2013 in English and held by 1,448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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. This newly revised edition carries the story into the angry 1990s, in which the shadow of Vietnam still hangs over national policy and the social ethic of the sixties is overshadowed by a conservative counterrevolution against taxes, social programs, and the powers of the national government

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 1,105 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
Backfire : how the Ku Klux Klan helped the civil rights movement by David Mark Chalmers ( Book )
6 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 954 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"While focused on the Klan's activities in the twentieth-century, Backfire also looks beyond the abuses of the past. Through an examination of groups like the neo-Nazis, Aryan Nations, Christian Identity, and the Patriot Movement, Chalmers explores the new face of the white supremacist Right."--BOOK JACKET
The history of the Standard Oil Company by Ida M Tarbell ( Book )
26 editions published between 1966 and 2003 in English and held by 760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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
