Celebration, U.S.A. : living in Disney's brave new town by Douglas Frantz( Book )

14 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 842 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When the Walt Disney Company unveiled its plans to build the town of the future, a model for environmentally sound, community-supportive urban development, it generated enormous interest around the country and the world." "Among the early residents were New York Times reporter Doug Frantz and his wife, Cathy Collins. Along with their two school-age children, they moved into the community shortly after the very first wave of people had arrived. Openly acknowledging that they were there to report on the town, they would spend the next two years as both observers and participants." "This is an interim report. The town is evolving, and it will be years before we know if or how it succeeds. But what Celebration, U.S.A. reveals is how a new town begins to develop real community structures and just how much social engineering can be done through bricks and mortar. Perhaps most important, it reveals how deeply unhappy millions of Americans are living in their isolated suburban, car-dependent world."--Jacket

Friends in high places : the rise and fall of Clark Clifford by Douglas Frantz( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 625 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For more than forty years, Clark Clifford was Washington's consummate Democratic power broker - attorney and adviser to the nation's most influential leaders. His 1991 memoir, Counsel to the President, looked back on a remarkable career of public service. But the very year his autobiography was published, the Clifford legend began to crumble. Caught up in the scandal that destroyed the Bank of Credit and Commerce International, the eighty-five-year-old Clifford was arrested on charges relating to his law firm's involvement with the outlaw bank. Though his case never went to trial, and his protege, Robert Altman, was found not guilty, Clifford's reputation was in ruins. How could such a man come to such an end? What happened? And why? In Friends in High Places, a noted investigative reporter and a chief investigator in the Senate inquiry on BCCI provide the answers. Drawing on original documents, more than a hundred interviews with Clifford's friends and adversaries, and fifty hours of interviews with Clifford himself, the authors reveal the drive and shrewdness that led Clifford to the pinnacle of power - and demonstrate convincingly that his involvement with BCCI was no aberration, but the bitter fruit of seeds planted at the beginning

Death on the Black Sea : the untold story of the Struma and World War II's Holocaust at sea by Douglas Frantz( Book )

12 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and held by 605 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A powerful story of endurance and the struggle for survival aboard a decrepit former cattle barge called Struma. In 1942 the only path to escape led through Istanbul, where the eight hundred desperate Jewish passengers found themselves trapped in a closing vise between the Nazis and countries that refused them sanctuary. The story of the Struma, its passengers, and the events that led to its destruction is investigated and revealed fully in two vivid, parallel accounts set six decades apart. One chronicles the diplomatic maneuvers and callousness of Great Britain, Romania, Turkey, and the rest of the international community, which resulted in the largest maritime loss of civilian life during World War II. The other part of the story recounts a recent attempt by a team of divers to locate the Struma at the bottom of the Black Sea, an effort initiated and pursued by the grandson of two of the victims"--Jacket

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the poorest inner-city public schools to the most privileged private academies, Teachers tells us firsthand what it's really like inside our children's classrooms. About how the system works for some students and leaves others behind. About how teachers' roles have changed. About the lack of discipline and increasing violence. About why some teachers stay idealistic while others burn out. Here are the telling anecdotes, the uncensored reflections, and the thoughts about reform that we don't hear at PTA meetings
The nuclear jihadist : the true story of the man who sold the world's most dangerous secrets-- and how we could have stopped him by Douglas Frantz( Book )

8 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the first time since the end of the Cold War, the threat of nuclear annihilation is on the rise. Should such an assault occur, there is a strong likelihood that the trail of devastation will lead back to Abdul Qadeer Khan, the Pakistani father of the Islamic bomb and the mastermind behind a vast clandestine enterprise that has sold nuclear secrets to Iran, North Korea, and Libya. Khan's loose-knit organization was and still may be a nuclear supermarket, selling weapons blueprints, parts, and the expertise to assemble the works into a do-it-yourself bomb kit. Amazingly, American authorities could have halted his operation, but they chose instead to watch and wait. Khan proved that the international safeguards the world relied on no longer worked.--From publisher description
