Gentleman boss : the life of Chester Alan Arthur by Thomas C Reeves( Book )

13 editions published between 1975 and 2013 in English and held by 1,311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

“ ‘Chet’ Arthur President of the United States. Good God!” was perhaps the most pithy contemporary reaction to the accession of the twenty-first Chief Executive. It has certainly been the most enduring, even though Arthur himself has remained an enigma—in large part because this shrewd, secretive New Yorker saw to it that many of his private papers were destroyed shortly before he died. Drawing on a wealth of newly discovered documents, Thomas Reeves has no written the definitive, full-scale biography of Arthur, revising our inconsistent assumptions about both him and his era. He gives us, for the first time, the unknown facts about Arthur’s early life: how, before he entered the boss-dominated Republican Party under the tutelage of men like the notorious Roscoe Conkling, this son of an itinerant minister was a model of nineteenth-century youthful idealism, first as a beloved schoolteacher, then as a young lawyer directly involved in the abolitionist struggle, and finally, as a conscientious and honest Quartermaster General for New York during the Civil War. Reeves assiduously plots Arthur’s consistently successful career as a master dealer in patronage and electioneering as a survivor among connivers—a career that culminated in his nomination as James Garfield’s Vice-President and, when Garfield was assassinated, his own White House inauguration, in spite of the great scandal attending his removal from the directorship of the New York Customhouse and the revelation that Garfield’s assassin claimed to be an Arthur supporter. As Reeves makes abundantly clear, this spoilsman supreme, who personified the worst gaudy excesses of the Gilded Age, administered the laws of the land honorably and even disinterestedly—to the chagrin of his fellow bosses and henchmen. Attacked by both Republican friends (the Stalwarts) and Republican foes (the Half-Breeds) and weakened by the fatal Bright’s disease (a fact that was only made public by Reeves himself in 1972), Arthur worked to eliminate extravagant government expenditures, enacted and enforced civil service reform (thus undermining the basis of his own public life), assisted in the birth of a modern navy, and initiated an aggressive, expansionist foreign policy that set precedents for later administrations. --
America's bishop : the life and times of Fulton J. Sheen by Thomas C Reeves( Book )

12 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 1,048 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fulton J. Sheen was the leading American Catholic of the twentieth century. He became familiar to a generation as the radiant figure in full bishop's robes who held the nation spellbound during the 1950s on his television show, Life Is Worth Living, which challenged Milton Berle's top-ranked show in the ratings. Sheen won an Emmy for Outstanding Television Personality. He was featured on the covers of Time, Look and Colliers, not to speak of TV Guide." "In addition to being the American Church's most charismatic presence over several decades, Sheen was also its chief evangelist. Among his hundreds of converts were celebrities such as Clare Boothe Luce and Henry Ford II, actress Loretta Young, and former Communists Louis Budenz and Elizabeth Bentley. Sheen's reputation has continued to grow since his death in 1979, and recently a movement has begun to build support for his canonization." "Now, Thomas C. Reeves gives us the first in-depth portrait of this flamboyant churchman and intellectual, a figure who confronted the world, the flesh and the devil with piety and brilliance. The result of interviews with dozens of Sheen's converts and close personal friends, as well as family members and fellow priests, America's Bishop is a complex portrait of a complex man who never stopped striving to transcend his failings."--Jacket

The empty church : the suicide of liberal Christianity by Thomas C Reeves( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 660 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Multiculturalism, and theology itself has tended to become secular, focusing more on liberal issues such as AIDS awareness and feminist critiques of God the Father than on the life and teachings of Christ. As a result, many churches have alienated their orthodox members and lost their strongest adherents. What, asks Reeves, can be done to reverse this disturbing trend? Based on his own probing investigations, Reeves makes informed recommendations for revitalizing them

Conducting educational design research by Susan E McKenney( Book )

3 editions published between 2012 and 2019 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Among the wide variety of backgrounds, many of those active in defining and applying educational design research appear to have arrived through an interest in psychology, the learning sciences or instructional design. Although most design studies are carried out in multi-disciplinary teams, participants need to conceptually understand the marriage between the design discipline and scientific research traditions. Conducting Educational Design Research emphasises the application of design knowledge and skills in research programs, guiding readers through the various disciplinary backgrounds and scientific developments current today. Therefore, this book on design research will be especially useful for faculty and students in (a) graduate education programs where exposure to research methodologies is strong but exposure to design methodologies is limited; and (b) graduate programs in instructional design where participants have strong backgrounds in design, but may lack the scientific research orientation. In a time when design research is gaining momentum, it seems notable that educational research programs are being confronted with the randomized field trials movement; and educational design programs are at risk of diluting their design character as valuable curricular time is being usurped by more traditional research skills. This book not only offers an invaluable classroom resource, it also provides for the ongoing university dialogue on how to best prepare the next generation of educational researchers."--
Freedom and foundation : the Fund for the Republic in the era of McCarthyism by Thomas C Reeves( )

3 editions published between 1969 and 2013 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Freedom and the Foundation is a study in depth of the first and most controversial of the tax-exempt foundations dedicated to research and public education in the field of civil liberties and civil rights: The Fund for the Republic. The story of its struggle for survival, as Mr. Reeves demonstrates, exemplifies the broader conflict between America's liberal and conservative forces in the early 1950s. The Fund'created in 1952 by the Ford Foundation'was set up to explore possibilities for liberalizing American society at the very time when, under the hysterical goading of Senator Joseph McCarthy, the forces of repression had reduced dissent to a hoarse whisper. Reeves tells of the mounting criticism when, less than two years after the Fund's launching, the noted educator and thinker Robert Hutchins became its president. He shows how, as the Fund attempted to follow its mandate under the leadership of Hutchins and his vice-president, W.H. Ferry, it encountered vociferous and persistent attack from powerful and entirely predictable sources, and became a magnet for all the political crosscurrents of the day. With a subtle feeling for the atmosphere of the McCarthy era, the author carries the reader into the Fund's first crisis, when it was brought before HUAC by the superpatriotic organizations and its other ultraconservative enemies. He describes the many clashes between Hutchins and his detractors in Congress and the press'such adversaries as Chairman Francis Walter of HUAC and the columnist-commentator Fulton Lewis, Jr. The account of the Fund's inception and development, of its accomplishments in creating, sponsoring, and disseminating ideas useful to the nation'of its inner conflicts and politicking as well as its struggle to makes its way in the outside world'is not only fascinating in itself, but particularly timely in the light of the recent Congressional investigations of the tax-exempt foundations. Professor Reeves's study is based on the files, reports, and publications of the Fund for the Republic (the first foundation to makes its complete files available to scholars), which are now at Princeton University, and on scores of interviews with Fund staff members, partisans, and critics, as well as more than five years of examining the more conventional source material
