1912 : Wilson, Roosevelt, Taft & Debs-- the election that changed the country by James Chace( Book )

12 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 1,603 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher's description: Four extraordinary men sought the presidency in 1912. Theodore Roosevelt was the charismatic and still wildly popular former president who sought to redirect the Republican Party toward a more nationalistic, less materialistic brand of conservatism and the cause of social justice. His handpicked successor and close friend, William Howard Taft, was a reluctant politician whose sole ambition was to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court. Amiable and easygoing, Taft was the very opposite of the restless Roosevelt. After Taft failed to carry forward his predecessor's reformist policies, an embittered Roosevelt decided to challenge Taft for the party's nomination. Thwarted by a convention controlled by Taft, Roosevelt abandoned the GOP and ran in the general election as the candidate of a third party of his own creation, the Bull Moose Progressives. Woodrow Wilson, the former president of Princeton University, astonished everyone by seizing the Democratic nomination from the party bosses who had made him New Jersey's governor. A noted political theorist, he was a relative newcomer to the practice of governing, torn between his fear of radical reform and his belief in limited government. The fourth candidate, labor leader Eugene V. Debs, had run for president on the Socialist ticket twice before. A fervent warrior in the cause of economic justice for the laboring class, he was a force to be reckoned with in the great debate over how to mitigate the excesses of industrial capitalism that was at the heart of the 1912 election. Chace recounts all the excitement and pathos of a singular moment in American history: the crucial primaries, the Republicans' bitter nominating convention that forever split the party, Wilson's stunning victory on the forty-sixth ballot at the Democratic convention, Roosevelt's spectacular coast-to-coast whistle-stop electioneering, Taft's stubborn refusal to fight back against his former mentor, Debs's electrifying campaign appearances, and Wilson's "accidental election" by less than a majority of the popular vote. Had Roosevelt received the Republican nomination, he almost surely would have been elected president once again and the Republicans would likely have become a party of reform. Instead, the GOP passed into the hands of a conservative ascendancy that reached its fullness with Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush, and the party remains to this day riven by the struggle between reform and reaction, isolationism and internationalism. The 1912 presidential contest was the first since the days of Jefferson and Hamilton in which the great question of America's exceptional destiny was debated. 1912 changed America
Acheson : the Secretary of State who created the American world by James Chace( Book )

15 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in English and held by 1,412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Acheson is the first complete biography of the most important and controversial secretary of state of the twentieth century. More than any other of the renowned 'Wise Men' who together proposed our vision of the world in the aftermath of World War II, Dean Acheson was the quintessential man of action. Drawing on Acheson family diaries and letters as well as recent revelations from Russian and Chinese archives, historian James Chace traces Acheson's remarkable life, from his days as a schoolboy at Groton and his carefree life at Yale to his work for President Franklin Roosevelt on international financial policy and his unique partnership with President Truman ... Chace corrects many misconceptions about Acheson's role in the Cold War. Acheson was not one of the original Cold Warriors. In 1945, willing to acknowledge Soviet concerns about its security, Acheson worked closely with Secretary of War Henry Stimson on a plan to share America's scientific information about atomic energy with Moscow in order to avert an arms race. It was only when Moscow made threatening demands on Turkey for bases in the Dardanelles that Acheson hardened his views toward the Soviet Union ... Later, Acheson encouraged President Kennedy to stand firm against the Soviets in the Berlin Wall and Cuban missile crises. He headed a group of elder statesmen who advised President Johnson on the Vietnam War. When Acheson turned against the war, Johnson realized that domestic support for his policy had crumbled."--Jacket

The consequences of the peace : the new internationalism and American foreign policy by James Chace( Book )

There are no superpowers left in the post-Cold War world. The collapse of the old order has given way to a world dominated by complex global balances of power. To help America cope with this radically changed environment, James Chace urges a new internationalism that will advance American national interests. Acting as first among equals, the United States, he argues, must design new international economic and political institutions for the twenty-first century. In The Consequences of the Peace, political analyst James Chace examines each region of the world, from Europe to the Pacific Rim. He presents a compelling critique of American foreign policy at the end of the century, demonstrating how U.S. policies continue to be based on outdated Cold War imperatives. He explains how our allies, free from the need to ensure their own security, have been able to spend more of their wealth on infrastructure, research and development, education, and other key factors in economic growth. He argues that the security system now in existence in Western Europe and the Pacific must be thoroughly revised to ensure a U.S. military presence for radically different ends. Most important of all, Chace shows that the entire system of international economic institutions established after World War II must be rebuilt. The International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, the use of dollars as the world currency--all were established at a time when America could afford to underwrite economic expansion on a global scale. Now our economy is caught between attracting foreign capital through an often artificially strong dollar or being forced to drive down the value of our currency to make our goods more attractive in Europe and Japan. If the U.S. is to help shape the new international order, it is essential that we restructure our economy and return to solvency. "The hour is late," Chace writes. "At the end of the twentieth century, there are no more superpowers." We can no longer insist that the world adhere to our blueprint of how to run the economy or impose a pax Americana on global disorder. We can neither hide from the world nor dictate our will--but, if we repair our economic health, we can provide essential leadership in the post-Cold War world. This book provides a powerful argument for what we must do, and how we can do it
