A history of the Kennedy Space Center by Kenneth Lipartito( Book )
4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 585 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is the first comprehensive history of the Kennedy Space Center, NASA's famous launch facility at Cape Canaveral, Florida. The Vehicle Assembly Building and launchpads dominate the flat terrain of the Cape and attract more than 1.4 million visitors annually, but few members of the public are aware of the many years of planning and hard work that take place before a rocket is lit." "In clear, lively detail, Kenneth Lipartito and Orville Butler describe how the methods and technology for preparing, testing, and launching spacecraft have evolved over the last 45 years. A History of the Kennedy Space Center covers the Mercury and Gemini missions, the Apollo lunar program, the Space Shuttle, scientific missions and robotic spacecraft, and the International Space Station, as well as the tragic accidents of Challenger and Columbia. Throughout, the authors reveal the unique culture of the men and women who work there and make KSC distinct from other parts of NASA. They make it abundantly clear that the processes performed by ground operations are absolutely vital to a mission's success." "With unprecedented access to a wide variety of sources, including the KSC archives, other NASA centers, the National Archives, and individual and group interviews and collections, Lipartito and Butler open a new perspective on humankind's efforts to conquer the final frontier."--BOOK JACKET

Investing for middle America : John Elliott Tappan and the origins of American Express Financial Advisors by Kenneth Lipartito( Book )
4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In 1894, in the teeth of the country's second worst depression, Americans struggled to feed their families on one dollar a day. Only the very rich were able to own stock, and frequent "panics" and bank failures wiped out people's savings. Most Americans lacked minimal financial security." "John Elliott Tappan, a Minneapolis lawyer, decided to act: he founded Investors Syndicate, later known as IDS, the financial pioneer that later became American Express Financial Advisors. Tappan's revolutionary idea was based on the notion that everyone could save a little money each month to build the security that would protect against devastating loss. In the first full biography of Tappan, Kenneth Lipartito and Carol Heher Peters tell the story of an extraordinary man and the role he played in altering the American financial system." "Drawing on Tappan's letters, diaries, and family history, Lipartito and Peters have written a chronicle of the transformation of American finance and an intimate portrait of the genius whose innovations and rock-solid faith in "democratic capitalism" made it all possible."--Jacket
Corporate responsibility : the American experience by Archie B Carroll( Book )
3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This thought-provoking history of corporate responsibility in the USA is a landmark publication documenting the story of corporate power and business behavior from the mid-eighteenth century to the modern day. It shows how the idea of corporate responsibility has evolved over time, with the roles, responsibilities and performance of corporations coming increasingly under the spotlight as new norms of transparency and accountability emerge. Today, it is expected that a corporation will be transparent in its operations; that it will reflect ethical values that are broadly shared by others in society; and that companies will enable society to achieve environmental sustainability as well as a high standard of living. As we enter the second decade of the twenty-first century, the social, political and economic landscape is once again shifting: the need for an informed public conversation about what is expected of the modern corporation has never been greater"--
