To everything there is a season : Pete Seeger and the power of song by Allan M Winkler ( Book )
10 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 780 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For over half of a century, Pete Seeger's life and music cut across the major issues of the day. A tireless supporter of union organization in the 1930s and 1940s, he joined the Communist Party, performing his songs with banjo and guitar accompaniment to promote worker solidarity. He sang out against American involvement in World War II in the early 1940s, only to change his tune after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. He enlisted in the Army and, still singing, served overseas in the South Pacific. In the 1950s, he found himself under attack during the Red Scare for his radical past. He narrowly escaped a long jail term for refusing to cooperate with the House Committee on Un-American Activities, when his contempt conviction was thrown out on a technicality. In the 1960s, he became the minstrel of the civil rights movement, focusing its energy with songs that inspired protestors and challenged the nation's patterns of racial discrimination. Toward the end of the decade, he turned his musical talents to resisting the war in Vietnam, and again drew fire from those who attacked his dissent as treason. Finally, in the 1970s, he lent his voice to the growing environmental movement by leading the drive to clean up the Hudson River, which flowed almost literally through his backyard in New York State. His life reflected the turbulence of his times as his songs sounded the spirit of the issues that he felt mattered most

Politics and propaganda: the Office of War Information, 1942-1945 by Allan M Winkler ( Book )
5 editions published between 1974 and 1991 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Office of War Information, organized in June 1942, sought to aid the drive toward victory. At home it wanted to stimulate understanding for the purposes of the war. Abroad it hoped to undermine enemy morale and at the same time to generate support for the Allied cause in friendly and occupied states. Those goals proved difficult to attain. The State Department regarded OWI as a nuisance. The military services considered propaganda unnecessary. The Congress viewed OWI as one more New Deal agency to be dismantled. Preoccupied with the larger questions of the war and uninterested in propaganda, Roosevelt was unwilling to support the agency. So the Office of War Information floundered until it was able to define for itself tasks that other agencies considered legitimate. Then OWI managed to make substantial contributions to the Allied success"--Preface
