"Dr. Schweitzer of Lambarene is in the nature of a personal appreciation of one of the towering figures of the twentieth century. Written on the basis of firsthand knowledge and observation, it is an informal, intimate account of Albert Schweitzer at work and in repose. Norman Cousins attempts to convey some idea of the burden Schweitzer has taken upon himself and why he chose to take it. He also tells of Schweitzer's deep concern of the natural rights and the safety of the human community on earth." Taken from inside front jacket
In God we trust : the religious beliefs and ideas of the American founding fathers by Norman Cousins( Book )

11 editions published in 1958 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,001 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is about the religious beliefs and personal philosophies of the small company of young men who founded the new nation that called itself the United States of America. Much is known about their political ideas--but what about their own articles of faith and individual philosophies? This question has served as the basis for speculation and often conflicting theory, especially in connection with recurring issues facing the American people. This is the first time these materials have been brought together into a single source. In these pages they speak their minds; they also speak to the spiritual concerns of our own time. Norman Cousins has examined literally thousands of letters, personal diaries and official pronouncements in making the selections for this book. As part of each chapter, he has also written an essay on the education and general background of each man.--From publisher description

"The photographs in this book are divided into three groups. The "illustrative" pieces, drawn from popular magazines such as Life and Look, reflect those magazines' emphasis on eye-catching color and celebrities. The "documentary" photos, visual equivalents of dog bites man, offer photojournalism's emphasis on dramatic action. Finally, the "expressive" shots offer the self-consciously "art" photography of Ansel Adams, Elliot Porter, and others."--Library Journal
