2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An outspoken, vibrant first lady is not an invention of the '90s White House. With her own radio program and daily newspaper column, Eleanor Roosevelt championed racial equality, youth employment, and women's rights and gained the admiration of the world ... she remained a figure of world importance and served as U.S. delegate to the United Nations, where she helped draft the International Declaration of Human Rights"--Container
Eleanor Roosevelt by Blanche Wiesen Cook( Book )

7 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Historians, politicians, critics, and readers everywhere have praised Blanche Wiesen Cooks biography of Eleanor Roosevelt as the essential portrait of a woman who towers over the twentieth century. The long-awaited third and final volume takes us through World War II, FDR's death, the founding of the UN, and Eleanor Roosevelts death in 1962. It follows the arc of war and the evolution of a marriage, as the first lady realized the cost of maintaining her principles even as the country and her husband were not prepared to adopt them. Eleanor Roosevelt continued to struggle for her core issues -- economic security, New Deal reforms, racial equality, and rescue when they were sidelined by FDR while he marshaled the country through war. The chasm between Eleanor and Franklin grew, and the strains on their relationship were as political as they were personal. She also had to negotiate the fractures in the close circle of influential women around her at Val-Kill, but through it she gained confidence in her own vision, even when forced to amend her agenda when her beliefs clashed with government policies on such issues as neutrality, refugees, and eventually the threat of communism. These years -- the war years -- made Eleanor Roosevelt the woman she became: leader, visionary, guiding light. FDR's death in 1945 changed her world, but she was far from finished, returning to the spotlight as a crucial player in the founding of the United Nations

Ordeal by slander by Owen Lattimore( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher's description: Joseph McCarthy was not yet a household name in 1950 when Owen Lattimore was labeled by the senator from Wisconsin as the "top Russian espionage agent in the country." Lattimore, in Kabul, Afghanistan, learned about the accusation a week later. Having already lost valuable time to rebut the smear, he succinctly cabled back that the charge was "pure moonshine" and returned to the United States to defend his good name. He soon dared McCarthy to utter his slander in a venue other than the Senate, where congressional immunity shielded him from lawsuits, but he refused to do so. Following a torturous Senate inquisition, Lattimore published this riveting book which he wrote in white-hot indignation. Judged at the time to be "a masterpiece of factual exposition [and] a social document of first-rate importance," this absorbing narrative chronicles how the ordeal threw Lattimore's life into perilous straits, and how he defended himself, while undermining the credibility of his accusers. In a battle for his very liberty, Lattimore prepared for the equivalent of an alley fight with the brawling senator. His supremely competent wife, Eleanor, was his trusted aide; along with attorney Abe Fortas they drew out of Lattimore's writings passages that would prove his loyalty. Yet, as a scholar who was accustomed to nuanced interpretations of current affairs, his accusers were able to conflate the same writings into a traitor's hidden agenda. Ordeal by Slander was the first great book to come out of the McCarthy era, and it remains a supremely topical book for today

In the early 1930's mass unemployment, widespread hunger, and a mood of fearful pessimism and simmering unrest were Herbert Hoover's legacy to American's new chief executive. This program spotlights the early days of Franklin D. Roosevelt's presidency, where he scrambled to transform the New Deal from a campaign slogan to nothing short of a social revolution--while staving off attacks by those who viewed him as a dictator and his reforms as a threatening turn to the left

Woodrow Wilson and the antimilitarists, 1914-1917 by Blanche Wiesen Cook( )

7 editions published between 1970 and 1983 in English and Undetermined and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this study is two-fold. It is primarily to explore the goals, personnel, and methods of the antimilitarists who sought to keep America out of World War I-- to maintain freedom and democracy in wartime-- and to frame a just and non-punitive peace. Second, it is to follow President Wilson's reactions to the antimilitarists at every stage of their activity, emphasizing such lessons as the anti-preparedness campaign, the mediation movement and the election of 1916. The antimilitarists who are studied here are the prominent social reformers who organized the American Union Against Militarism in 1915 and their agenda to maintaining America's neutrality. These antimilitarists were limited by their self-image and by a naive faith in the president's words. The members of the AUAM considered themselves respectable social critics and were reluctant to oppose the president. They were dissenters who frequently delayed their attempts to mobilize public opinion in the hopes that the president would act. Consequently, they failed to initiate an effective protest movement to keep America out of the war. When they realized the danger to American institutions created by war and the politics of deceit, they organized the National Civil Liberties Bureau, later to become the American Civil Liberties Union, in order to protect conscientious objectors, other dissenters, and to pursue more vigorously the work they started in 1914
