Elected to four terms as president, he transformed an inward-looking country into the greatest superpower the world had ever known. Only Abraham Lincoln did more to save America from destruction. But FDR is such a large figure that historians tend to take him as part of the landscape, focusing on smaller aspects of his achievements or carping about where he ought to have done things differently. Few have tried to assess the totality of FDR's life and career. In this biography, Conrad Black makes the case that FDR was the most important person of the twentieth century, transforming his nation and the world through his unparalleled skill as a domestic politician, war leader, strategist, and global visionary--all of which he accomplished despite a physical infirmity that could easily have ended his public life at age thirty-nine. Black also takes on the great critics of FDR, especially those who accuse him of betraying the West at Yalta. Black opens a new chapter in our understanding of this great man, whose example is even more inspiring as a new generation embarks on its own rendezvous with destiny+-+8936391306170810ocn154699029book20070.27Black, ConradRichard M. Nixon : a life in fullBiographyFrom the late 1940s to the mid-1970s, Richard Nixon was a polarizing figure in American politics, admired for his intelligence, savvy, and strategic skill, and reviled for his shady manner and cutthroat tactics. Conrad Black, whose epic biography of FDR was widely acclaimed as a masterpiece, now separates the good in Nixon--his foreign initiatives, some of his domestic policies, and his firm political hand--from the sinister, in a book likely to generate enormous attention and controversy. Black believes the hounding of Nixon from office was partly political retribution from a lifetime's worth of enemies and Nixon's misplaced loyalty to unworthy subordinates, and not clearly the consequence of crimes in which he participated. Conrad Black's own recent legal travails, though hardly comparable, have undoubtedly given him an unusual insight into the pressures faced by Nixon in his last two years as president and the first few years of his retirement. -- Publisher+-+44603913063595ocn809615512book20130.20Black, ConradFlight of the eagle : the grand strategies that brought America from colonial dependence to world leadershipHistoryBlack describes nine "phases" of the strategic rise of the nation, in which it progressed through grave challenges, civil and foreign wars, and secured a place for itself under the title of "Superpower." He discredits prevailing notions that our unrivaled status is the product of good geography, demographics, and good luck. Instead, he reveals and analyzes the specific strategic decisions of great statesmen through the ages that transformed the world as we know it and established America's place in it29715ocn003033534book19770.66Black, ConradDuplessisBiography1477ocn123375727book20050.28Black, ConradRichard Milhous Nixon : the invincible questBiographyFeatures information about Richard Milhous Nixon (1913-1994), the 37th president of the United States, compiled as part of Cyber Grandma's Home Sweet Home.

Unapologetic about his right-wing agenda, corporate manoeuvres, and lavish lifestyle, Conrad Black seemed untouchable with a newspaper empire that spanned three continents and a seat in Britain's House of Lords. In the fall of 2003 his carefully constructed world crumbled when his company accused him of siphoning off millions of dollars of corporate money. He now found himself the target of U.S. regulators, an object of ridicule in the international press, and a self-described "pariah" among the rich and famous he once called his friends." "Business reporters Jacquie McNish and Sinclair Stewart have dug deep into Black's career by interviewing leading players and gaining behind-the-scenes accounts of his corporate machinations. Wrong Way offers an in-depth portrayal of how the seemingly invulnerable magnate of Hollinger International Inc. was brought down by his own shareholders and ousted as head of his company."--BOOK JACKET+-+01812103061853ocn030667557book19930.35Black, ConradA life in progressHistoryBiography1761ocn076865958book20060.23Bower, TomOutrageous fortune : the rise and ruin of Conrad and Lady BlackHistoryBiography+-+0961966155952ocn056318828book20040.50Tombs, GeorgeLord Black : the biographyHistoryBiographyFrom not-so-humble beginnings, Conrad Black built a media empire that stretched around the globe.
