The age of doubt : American thought and culture in the 1940s by William Graebner( Book )

12 editions published between 1990 and 1998 in English and held by 1,222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The trauma of war and cold war, the shattering revelation of the murder of millions of European Jews, the discovery of nuclear fission and the use of an atomic bomb on civilians at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the Great Depression that threatened to return any day--these were the events that held Americans in a decade-long state of anxiety. Never before had progress seemed so fragile, history so harmful or so irrelevant, science so lethal, aggregation of power so ominous, life so full of contingencies, human relationships so tenuous, the self so frail, humankind so flawed. In this highly regarded volume Graebner examines American culture from a variety of perspectives, encompassing art, architecture, film, literature, music, dance, pop culture, and political and scientific thought. His compelling and original analysis recreates an era of anxiety and ambiguity in which Americans felt pulled inward, toward the self, and outward, toward an all-encompassing universalism, in their search for reassurance and stability

Patty's got a gun : Patricia Hearst in 1970s America by William Graebner( Book )

10 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in English and held by 556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With Patty's Got a Gun, the first substantial reconsideration of Patty Hearst's story in more than twenty-five years, William Graebner vividly re-creates the atmosphere of uncertainty and frustration of mid-1970s America. Drawing on copious media accounts of the robbery and trial -- as well as cultural artifacts from glam rock to Invasion of the Body Snatchers -- Graebner paints a compelling portrait of a nation confused and frightened by the upheavals of 1960s liberalism and beginning to tip over into what would become Reagan-era conservatism, with its invocations of individual responsibility and the heroic. Trapped in the middle of that shift, the affectless, zombielike, "brainwashed" Patty Hearst was a ready-made symbol of all that seemed to have gone wrong with the sixties -- the inevitable result, some said, of rampant permissiveness, feckless elitism, the loss of moral clarity, and feminism run amok
The engineering of consent : democracy and authority in twentieth-century America by William Graebner( Book )

7 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Coal-mining safety in the progressive period : the political economy of reform by William Graebner( Book )

7 editions published between 1976 and 2015 in English and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through the first decade of the twentieth century, Americans looked upon industrial accidents with callous disregard; they were accepted as an unfortunate but necessary adjunct to industrial society. A series of mine disasters in December 1907 (including one in Monongah, West Virginia, which took a toll of 361 lives) shook the public, at least temporarily, out of its lethargy. In this award-winning study, author William Graebner traces the development of mine safety reform in the years immediately following these tragic events
