The two Koreas : a contemporary history by Don Oberdorfer( Book )

43 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Below the dividing line, which was established by the great powers at the end of World War II, South Korea has developed a fractious democracy and one of the world's most vibrant economies. Above the line lies reclusive North Korea, the most closed society on earth, locked in its unique brand of communist Confucianism, militarily powerful but bereft of its former communist allies and unable to feed its people
Tet! by Don Oberdorfer( Book )

25 editions published between 1971 and 2001 in 4 languages and held by 1,458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this classic work of military history and war reportage - long considered the definitive history of Tet and its aftermath - Don Oberdorfer moves back and forth between the war and the home front to document the lasting importance of this military action. Based on his own observations as a correspondent for the Washington Post and interviews with hundreds of people who were caught up in the struggle, Tet! remains an essential contribution to our understanding of the Vietnam War."--Jacket

Senator Mansfield : the extraordinary life of a great statesman and diplomat by Don Oberdorfer( )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 612 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""When I'm gone, I want to be forgotten," said Senator Mike Mansfield of Montana. While he lived a life that was truly unforgettable as one of America's most important and admired public servants of the twentieth century, Mansfield refused to write his memoirs and shunned the entreaties of would-be biographers. Nonetheless, he sat down with Don Oberdorfer for thirty-two interviews in the last three years of his long life and helped to open closed government documents that cast light on what he did and said. Until now, his amazing story has never been told in full." "Here is the story of his hardscrabble childhood in Montana, his service in the lowest ranks of every branch of the U.S. military in and after World War I, and the improbable love affair with his future wife, Maureen, that lifted this eighth-grade dropout from the Butte, Montana, copper mines to academia and political prominence. In his thirty-four years in Congress - including his record-breaking tenure as Senate Majority Leader from 1961 to 1977 - Mansfield was deeply involved in the great events of his time with Presidents Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, and Ford."--Jacket

From the Cold War to a new era : the United States and the Soviet Union, 1983-1991 by Don Oberdorfer( Book )

13 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1991 as The Turn, this is the gripping narrative history of the most important international development of our time - the passage of the United States and the Soviet Union from the Cold War to a new era. Don Oberdorfer makes the reader a privileged behind-the-scenes spectator as U.S. and Soviet leaders take each other's measure and slowly set about their historic task. Oberdorfer writes diplomatic history with a vital difference: extraordinary intimacy made possible by comprehensive interviews with major figures on both sides and exclusive material from a host of other sources. Now this book is available in a new, updated paperback edition, which continues the narrative up to the dramatic collapse of the Soviet Union
Princeton University : the first 250 years by Don Oberdorfer( Book )

10 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume offers an illustrated history of the 250-year history of Princeton University (New Jersey). The book's first seven chapters focus on the pivotal moments of Princeton's first 200 years: its founding based in the Great Awakening, a religious movement of the time; the construction and history of Nassau Hall; the era of President Witherspoon, a Scottish minister and the University's first great president; the Civil War; the era of President McCosh, a Scottish educator who significantly improved the institution; Woodrow Wilson at Princeton; and the inter-war years. The remaining seven chapters sketch the major developments of the post-World War ii era, including increased diversity of the student body, an expanded commitment to graduate education and research, the decision to become coeducational, and the creation of residential colleges. Interspersed are small sections that profile the four presidents who led Princeton after World War ii and brief sketches on topics that range from Princeton's athletes and its Nobel laureates to things named after Princeton and the phenomenon of Princeton reunions.
