The Presidency of Gerald R. Ford by John Robert Greene( Book )

9 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 1,691 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reaching beyond the image of Ford as "healer" of a war-torn and scandal-ridden nation, John Robert Greene extends and revises our understanding of Ford's struggles to restore credibility to the presidency in the wake of Watergate and Vietnam. Few presidents had ever been asked to achieve so much in so little time against such great adversity. Greene shows that Ford's efforts to lead the nation were severely hampered by Nixon's misdeeds, by America's ignominious disengagement from an unpopular war, and by a watchdog Congress eager to put a brake on presidential power. Greene reveals evidence on Ford's roles in Watergate and challenges the prevailing view of the infamous Mayaguez incident. He argues persuasively that Ford made no "deal" with Nixon, but that his pardon of Nixon was costly nonetheless, for it shadowed his entire presidency thereafter. He also shows that the Mayaguez catastrophe was less a simple "rescue mission" than it was an attempt to revive sagging political fortunes by attacking Cambodia. In addition, Greene details Ford's rise to prominence within the Republican Party; chronicles the president's problematic relations with his staff, the new Democratic Congress, and Ronald Reagan; sheds new light on the selection and performance of Vice-President Nelson Rockefeller; offers new insights into the election of 1976; and provides a look at Ford's Amnesty Program for Vietnam Era Draft Evaders. --From publisher's description

The limits of power : the Nixon and Ford administrations by John Robert Greene( Book )

7 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book argues the thesis that during the Nixon and Ford administrations America discovered the limits of its power, and that both presidents had, therefore, to adjust to new realities in both their domestic and their international activities. It was also the period when the American people first insisted on certain limits to presidential activity, and even forced a powerful president from office for that reason. Like the distinguished preceding books in this series - by Charles Alexander on Eisenhower and Jim Heath on the Kennedy-Johnson years - John Greene's study provides a balanced historical assessment of the Nixon and Ford administrations. The volume focuses on both domestic and foreign policy and presents one of the first true historical judgments about these administrations
Betty Ford : candor and courage in the White House by John Robert Greene( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Robert Greene traces Betty Ford's problems and triumphs from her childhood through her husband's entire political career, including his controversial presidency, which thrust her into an unrelenting media spotlight.

America in the sixties by John Robert Greene( Book )

13 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sandwiched between the placid fifties and the flamboyant seventies, the sixties, a decade of tumultuous change and stunning paradoxes, is often reduced to a series of slogans, symbols, and media images. In this book the author goes beyond the cliches and synthesizes thirty years of research, writing, and teaching on one of the most turbulent decades of the twentieth century. He sketches the well known players of the period, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson, Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, and Betty Friedan, bringing each to life with subtle detail. He introduces the reader to lesser known incidents of the decade and offers fresh and persuasive insights on many of its watershed events. He argues that the civil rights movement began in 1955 following the death of Emmett Till; that many accomplishments credited to Kennedy were based upon myth, not historical fact, and that his presidency was far from successful; that each of the movements of the period, civil rights, students, antiwar, ethnic nationalism, were started by young intellectuals and eventually driven to failure by activists who had different goals in mind; and that the "counterculture", which has been glorified in today's media as a band of rock singing hippies, had its roots in some of the most provocative social thinking of the postwar period. He chronicles the decade in a thematic manner, devoting individual chapters to such subjects as the legacy of the fifties, the Kennedy and Johnson administrations, the civil rights movements, and the war in Vietnam

The Basic Speech Course and the College Radio Station by John Robert Greene( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A community college basic speech instructor found that having students read public service announcements (PSAs) from various nonprofit organizations is a novel and beneficial way for them to experience the oral reading phase of the introductory speech course. Students chose one of three PSAs to read on the college radio station. The readings were recorded for the student and graded by the instructor from an office outside the broadcast booth. The radio audience was receptive to the rapid succession of "commercials," and students were uninhibited by the microphone. The radio reading proved to be particularly advantageous for the apprehensive students since the audience was invisible. The instructor was able to judge the students' vocal quality more accurately when screened from sight of the speaker. The evaluations were also more accurate because the microphone picked up the subtleties in the students' vocal patterns that had not been evident in the classroom. An alternative radio station in the form of a portable reading carrel and a tape recorder with a microphone can serve the same purpose, by allowing students to read without facing a visible audience and allowing the instructor to grade the students' vocal style without watching their physical delivery.
