A heart, a cross & a flag : America today by Peggy Noonan( Book )

3 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 753 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a book about love." So begins Peggy Noonan's enormously moving collection of her post-September 11 Wall Street Journal commentaries. On the morning of the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, Noonan began writing, and produced at least one essay every week through September 11, 2002. These candid, compassionate and sometimes heart-wrenching pieces are full of insights and observations picked up throughout the country--on experiencing the return of religious faith to a great modern city on how the events influenced our perceptions of what it means to live in New York, or to be a man, or to take part in a community. Taking her own, her city's and her country's pulse, she administered a welcome dose of humanity, affirmation and inspiration, quickly attracting a large and loyal readership. This first draft of history--a record, written on the ground, of what it felt like to be an American that day, and the days after--balances the immediacy of the tragedy with its broader meaning for our world. Noonan, the bestselling author of When Character Was King, brings to these articles her unsurpassed powers of description: walking on the streets and riding on the buses of Manhattan in the hours and days following the attack watching, along with most of the country, the televised reportage, public announcements, expert opinions and tributes witnessing our "post-incident heartache" and anxiety, as well as the "spirited gaiety of New Yorkers at this time in history." By training our gaze on everyone from firemen, Catholic and Muslim mourners and the President to news anchors, bus drivers and school kids, these essays not only depict America in all its beautiful and diverse strengths but serve as an emblem of such. At once elegant and tough, elegiac and proud, outraged and tender, full of street smarts and down-home wisdom, this book will help Americans understand their emotional and intellectual responses to those devastating events. For everyone who felt scared, saddened, outraged and humbled but not defeated by the horror of that day, here is a balm and an apt tribute to what we lost and what we learned about ourselves.--Publisher description

When character was king : a story of Ronald Reagan by Peggy Noonan( Book )

4 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is twenty years--a full generation--since Ronald Reagan first walked into the White House & ignited a revolution. From the beginning, he enjoyed the American people's affection but now, as he approaches the end of his life, he has received what he deserved even more: their deep respect. What was the wellspring of his greatness? Peggy Noonan, bestselling author of the classic Reagan-era memoir What I Saw at the Revolution, former speechwriter, & now a columnist & contributing editor for The Wall Street Journal, argues that the secret of Reagan's success was no secret at all. It was his character--his courage, his kindness, his persistence, his honesty, & his almost heroic patience in the face of setbacks--that was the most important element of his success. The one thing a man must bring into the White House with him if he is to succeed, Noonan contends, is a character that people come to recognize as high, sturdy, & reliable. Noonan, renowned for her special insight into Ronald Reagan's history & personality, brings her own reflections on Reagan to bear in When Character Was King & discloses never-before-told stories from the former president's family, friends, & White House colleagues to reveal the true nature of a man even his opponents now view as a maker of big history. Marked by incisive wit & elegant prose, When Character Was King will enlighten & move readers

Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness by Peggy Noonan( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When last we met, George Bush had just been inaugurated president, Ronald Reagan was waving goodbye to Washington in a helicopter flyby and I had just come back to New York, where I finished a book about being a speechwriter for both. Ultimately my son and I ensconced ourselves in the top of a house in one of Manhattan's old brownstone neighborhoods, where I set up shop as a writer. "Because of ... the facts of my life, I know and have dealings with many people, and am invited to visit their circles, their rings. It is a various world. "This is in part about that world. It is not a book about big events, but about the day-to-day of thinking and living in a particular era. It is not so much about politics as about life viewed from an inescapably political perspective. And if there is any revolution in it, it is one that is happening within me." Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness begins with particulars. Life is in the details: rediscovering home after a five-year absence; learning where parenthood intersects - and sometimes clashes - with modern culture; measuring the distance between the old and the new America; deciding what one's values are and working out how to live by them within America's unruly cultural landscape. All aspects of our life in America are ennobled through Noonan's gift of observation, for grasping that the profound resides at the heart of the mundane. But as the details of Noonan's life accumulate, they begin to point outward, rippling beyond private interests, brushing against large questions. In "Liberty," Noonan turns to our precarious political culture, and the people who populate it. Ironically, for Noonan, liberty means both freedom from an overtly political life and immersion in it. She takes a tough look at the 1992 Bush campaign, and a hard look at the victor in that election, Bill Clinton - whom she sees as a one-term president. Political culture is not, however, the farthest-flung colony in "The Pursuit of Happiness." From her base in America's cultural capital, New York, Noonan's musings lead her beyond the issues that concern us in the world, to those about which the new America is considerably less confident. Noonan writes of her struggles with reclaiming her faith, with finding a place for God in a country replete with the temptations of Mammon. Throughout Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, Peggy Noonan's warmth, wit and wisdom help us remember some of the things Americans know in their hearts, but often forget in their heads. Sharing in her struggles and her victories helps to put the shine back on life in America in the latter days of the twentieth century
