While Louis W. Sullivan was a student at Morehouse College, Morehouse president Benjamin Mays said something to the student body that stuck with him for the rest of his life. "The tragedy of life is not failing to reach our goals," Mays said. "It is not having goals to reach." In Breaking Ground, Sullivan recounts his extraordinary life beginning with his childhood in Jim Crow south Georgia and continuing through his trailblazing endeavors training to become a physician in an almost entirely white environment in the Northeast, founding and then leading the Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta, and serving as secretary of Health and Human Services in President George H.W. Bush's administration. Throughout this extraordinary life Sullivan has passionately championed both improved health care and increased access to medical professions for the poor and people of color

Joycelyn Elders, M.D. : from sharecropper's daughter to surgeon general of the United States of America by Joycelyn Elders( Book )

15 editions published between 1966 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The oldest of eight children, Joycelyn Elders was born Minnie Lee Jones in the tiny town of Schaal, Arkansas, in 1933. She grew up in a three-room cabin and, at age fifteen, graduated from high school as valedictorian. When she entered Philander Smith College in Little Rock, she had never seen a doctor, let alone dreamed of becoming one. Dr. Elders graduated from the University of Arkansas Medical School and then became its first black resident, its first black chief resident, and finally its first black professor. By the time of the Senate debate on her confirmation as surgeon general in August 1993, Dr. Elders had been a respected pediatric endocrinologist and medical scientist for a quarter of a century, as well as the director of Arkansas's health department under then-governor Clinton. But during Dr. Elders's tenure as surgeon general she came under fire for her controversial positions on such subjects as abortion, sex education, the distribution of condoms, and the legalization of drugs. Her passion and outspokenness enraged Republicans and often upset the Clinton administration. Now, Dr. Elders openly describes the top-level machinations that led the Clinton health insurance reform to self-destruct and eventually resulted in her own dismissal. She writes with equal candor about such intimate personal tragedies as her youngest son's drug addiction and arrest, and about the poisoned political climate in Arkansas, which has affected the lives of so many of the President's friends and appointees."--Jacket

Slow burn : the rise and bitter fall of American intelligence in Vietnam by Orrin DeForest( Book )

7 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 681 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vietnam. There was the war we knew, emblazoned across our television screens, ripping through that faraway country, and branding our national conscience as no other war ever had. And there was the silent war, a secret struggle against an invisible enemy, the U.S. military's dire need for intelligence about the Vietcong's elusive presence in the villages and hamlets of South Vietnam. Orrin DeForest was by far the United States' most successful spymaster in that silent war. He and the men he trained proved indispensable for their work in relentlessly ferreting out the Vietcong and penetrating their shadowy organization

8 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 674 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a young aid worker, Sasha Chanoff was sent to evacuate a group of refugees from the violence-torn Congo. But when he arrived, he discovered a second group. Evacuating them too could endanger the entire mission, but leaving them behind would mean their certain death. Why is moral courage the essential factor at such times? How do we access our own rock-bottom values, and how can we take advantage of them to make the best decisions? Through Sasha's own extraordinary story and those of eight other brave leaders from business, government, nongovernment organizations, and the military, this book reveals five principles for confronting crucial decisions and inspires all of us to use our moral core as a lodestar for leadership
The line of fire : from Washington to the Gulf, the politics and battles of the new military by William J Crowe( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On September 19, 1992, Admiral William J. Crowe, Jr., made headlines with his endorsement of Democrat Bill Clinton as President of the United States. Washington took sharp notice: Crowe, a staunch advocate of military strength, had served for four years - under both Presidents Reagan and Bush - as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. As the top-ranking officer in the American military, he held all of its branches and forces, outposts from the South Pacific to the North Atlantic, from Antarctica to Central America, under the sweep of his command. To this day, many Clinton strategists perceive Crowe's endorsement and his subsequent work for Clinton as one of the campaign's turning points. It was an unexpected move. But Washington, luckily, had learned to expect surprises from the candid, witty Oklahoman whose tenure as commander was marked by an openness to change rarely encountered in the military hierarchy's upper ranks. As his memoir, The Line of Fire, makes clear, quick change has been a constant in Crowe's career - a fast flight up the chain of command that began just after World War II at the height of the Cold War, reaching its apex with the thaw and the beginning of a new era in foreign relations. Few military men's careers provide such a vantage on so many momentous transitions and events: women in the ranks; the new high-tech range of weaponry and machinery; and the rise of a new breed of Military leader, men like Crowe himself, trained in the halls of Congress as well as on the battlefield. Crowe shows where the military has been - and where it must go. He takes us into the secret world of the Pentagon, where we see the sophisticated war games staged by the highest officials in the land. He takes us inside the story of the build-up of tensions in the Gulf, explaining what we have never really understood about the accidental shoot-down of an Iranian Airbus by the cruiser Vincennes and about the U.S. raid on Libya (why we never intended to kill Qaddafi; why Caspar Weinberger would never admit that the U.S. did hit the French embassy). Admiral Crowe shows us the most significant military and political events of the last decade as we have never seen them before. Crowe explains why nuclear weapons are our least effective defense; takes a critical look at Desert Storm (an ideal battle situation); speculates on the ending Of the Cold War (George Bush was only one of the many contributors); and tells the story of his special friendship with Marshal of the Soviet Union Sergei Akhromeyev (the Soviet chief of staff), who shared many of his concerns about the future of nuclear weapons and U.S.-Soviet relations. As never before, Crowe's memoir explains the world of political maneuvering that lies behind military decision-making. From the battlefield to Capitol Hill, Crowe gives a candid, always interesting look at modern military life - and his concerns for our future

The gentleman from Ohio by Louis Stokes( Book )

4 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Louis Stokes was a giant in Ohio politics and one of the most significant figures in the U.S. Congress in recent times. When he arrived in the House of Representatives as a freshman in 1969, there were only six African Americans serving. By the time he retired thirty years later, he had chaired the House Special Committee on the Kennedy and King assassinations, the House Ethics Committee during Abscam, and the House Intelligence Committee during Iran-Contra; he was also a senior member of the powerful House Appropriations Committee. Prior to Louis Stokes’s tenure in Congress he served for many years as a criminal defense lawyer and chairman of the Cleveland NAACP Legal Redress Committee. Among the Supreme Court Cases he argued, the Terry “Stop and Frisk” case is regarded as one of the twenty-five most significant cases in the court’s history. The Gentleman from Ohio chronicles this and other momentous events in the life and legacy of Ohio’s first black representative—a man who, whether in law or politics, continually fought for the principles he believed in and helped lead the way for African Americans in the world of mainstream American politics
