Herbert Hoover, forgotten progressive by Joan Hoff( Book )
9 editions published between 1975 and 1992 in English and held by 1,535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book examines the life of one of America's least favored presidents. Herbert Hoover's career followed a pattern familiar in the history of the United States : humble beginnings surmounted by hard work and tremendous ambition, wealth, public service and, eventually, the presidency. From his Quaker youth he acquired morals and values that he would preserve throughout his entire life. These values ultimately created an unbridgeable gulf between him and U.S. citizens as he confronted the Great Depression soon after taking office. There would always be little comprehension between the president and the people who looked to him for leadership. He died unpopular and isolated, disowned by his own party, embittered by the lack of understanding, and convinced that the burden of blame for the depression had been thrust on him unfairly. This volume seeks to shed light not only on the man and his career, but also on the evolving nation that rejected him

Nixon reconsidered by Joan Hoff( Book )
8 editions published between 1994 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
When given credit for certain accomplishments, Nixon is remembered for his dramatic successes in foreign policy, such as opening relations with China. Contrary to prevailing wisdom, Hoff argues that Nixon's most lasting achievements are in domestic rather than foreign policy. She points out that it was Nixon rather than Eisenhower, Kennedy, or Johnson who actually desegregated southern schools. It was Nixon who led Congress to our first concrete federal legislation on the environment. Nixon's bold attempts to achieve welfare and health care reform (opposed by both liberals and conservatives at the time) anticipated current reform efforts and are the most progressive initiatives of any president since FDR. And Nixon's civil rights record on women and Native Americans is also impressive, as is his reorganization of the executive branch of government

Law, gender, and injustice : a legal history of U.S. women by Joan Hoff( Book )
18 editions published between 1990 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this widely acclaimed landmark study, Joan Hoff illustrates how women remain second- class citizens under the current legal system and questions whether the continued pursuit of equality based on a one-size-fits-all vision of traditional individual rights is really what will most improve conditions for women in America as they prepare for the twenty-first century. Concluding that equality based on liberal male ideology is no longer an adequate framework for improving women's legal status, Hoff's highly original and incisive volume calls for a demystification of legal doctrine and a reinterp

A Faustian foreign policy from Woodrow Wilson to George W. Bush : dreams of perfectibility by Joan Hoff( Book )
12 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 572 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A Faustian Foreign Policy from Woodrow Wilson to George W. Bush: Dreams of Perfectibility critiques U.S. foreign policy during this period by showing how moralistic diplomacy has increasingly assumed Faustian overtones, especially during the Cold War and following September 11. The ideological components of American diplomacy, originating in the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, evolved through the twentieth century as U.S. economic and political power steadily increased." "Seeing myth making as essential in any country's founding and a common determinant of its foreign policy, Professor Joan Hoff reveals how the basic belief in its exceptionalism has driven America's past and present attempts to remake the world in its own image. She expands her original concept of "independent internationalism" as the modus operandi of U.S. diplomacy to reveal the many unethical Faustian deals the United States has entered into since 1920 to obtain its current global supremacy."--BOOK JACKET
