41 : inside the presidency of George H.W. Bush by Michael Nelson( )

11 editions published between 1900 and 2014 in English and held by 1,491 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although it lasted only a single term, the presidency of George H.W. Bush was an unusually eventful one, encompassing the fall of the Berlin Wall and the reunification of Germany, the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the invasion of Panama, the Persian Gulf War, and contentious confirmation hearings over Clarence Thomas and John Tower. Bush has said that to understand the history of his presidency, while "the documentary record is vital," interviews with members of his administration "add the human side that those papers can never capture."This book draws on interviews with senior White House and Cabinet officials conducted under the auspices of the Bush Oral History Project (a cooperative effort of the University of Virginia's Miller Center and the George Bush Presidential Library Foundation) to provide a multidimensional portrait of the first President Bush and his administration. Typically, interviews explored officials' memories of their service with President Bush and their careers prior to joining the administration. Interviewees also offered political and leadership lessons they had gleaned as eyewitnesses to and shapers of history. The contributors to 41--all seasoned observers of American politics, foreign policy, and government institutions--examine how George H.W. Bush organized and staffed his administration, operated on the international stage, followed his own brand of Republican conservatism, handled legislative affairs, and made judicial appointments. A scrupulously objective analysis of oral history, primary documents, and previous studies, 41 deepens the historical record of the forty-first president and offers fresh insights into the rise of the "new world order" and its challenges.

42 : inside the Presidency of Bill Clinton by Michael Nelson( )

11 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 1,169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book uses hundreds of hours of newly opened interviews and other sources to illuminate the life and times of the nation's forty-second president, Bill Clinton. Combining the authoritative perspective of these inside accounts with the analytic powers of some of America?s most distinguished presidential scholars, the essays assembled here offer a major advance in our collective understanding of the Clinton White House. Included are path-breaking chapters on the major domestic and foreign policy initiatives of the Clinton years, as well as objective discussions of political success and failure. "42" is the first book to make extensive use of previously closed interviews collected for the Clinton Presidential History Project, conducted by the Presidential Oral History Program of the University of Virginia?s Miller Center. These interviews, recorded by teams of scholars working under a veil of strict confidentiality, explored officials? memories of their service with President Clinton and their careers prior to joining the administration. Interviewees also offered political and leadership lessons they had gleaned as eyewitnesses to and shapers of history. Their spoken recollections provide invaluable detail about the inner history of the presidency in an age when personal diaries and discursive letters are seldom written

Edward M. Kennedy : an oral history by Barbara A Perry( Book )

7 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For Kennedy devotees, as well as readers unfamiliar with the "lion of the Senate," this book presents the compelling story of Edward Kennedy's unexpected rise to become one of the most consequential legislators in American history and a passionate defender of progressive values, achieving legislative compromises across the partisan divide. What distinguishes Edward Kennedy: An Oral History is the nuanced detail that emerges from the senator's never-before published, complete descriptions of his life and work, placed alongside the observations of his friends, family, and associates. The senator's twenty released interviews reveal, in his own voice, the stories of Kennedy triumph and tragedy from the Oval Office to the waters of Chappaquiddick. Spanning the presidencies of JFK to Barack Obama, Edward Kennedy was an iconic player in American political life, the youngest sibling of America's most powerful dynasty; he candidly addresses this role: his legislative accomplishments and failures, his unsuccessful run for the White House, his impact on the Supreme Court, his observations on Washington gridlock, and his personal faults. The interviews and introductions to them create an unsurpassed and illuminating volume. Gathered as part of the massive Edward Kennedy Oral History Project, conducted by the University of Virginia's Miller Center, the senator's interviews allow readers to see how oral history can evolve over a three-year period, drawing out additional details as the interviewee becomes increasingly comfortable with the process and the interviewer. Yet, given the Kennedys' well-known penchant for image creation, what the senator doesn't say or how he says what he chooses to include, is often more revealing than a simple declarative statement."--

Changes in the physical, chemical, and organoleptic quality of Spanish peanuts due to heat inactivation by Oliver Harrell Miller( Book )

1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study was designed to relate seed characteristics to product acceptance of peanuts. This was done by determining biological, physical, and chemical changes that occurred as a result of peanut curing and heat treatments at two stages of maturity. The statistical relationship of these attributes at the mature stage with organoleptic attributes was determined by submitting each attribute to a two-way analysis of variance test with interaction and by determining the correlation coefficients between all attributes. Internal hull surface color, kernel density, and light transmittance of peanut oil were significantly correlated to each other with respect to kernel maturity. A non-sacrificial index of peanut kernel maturity was developed by objectively measuring and relating the internal hull surface color of the peanuts to other attributes of quality. There were no major significant differences in mature and immature samples due to treatment alone. However, many of the evaluations indicated major differences due to maturity. These differences were emphasized and accentuated by the treatments but not caused by them. For example, kernel surface color of the immature kernels was consistently darker than the mature kernels, but the difference was initially there and the treatment only made the difference more apparent. Typically, as heat inactivation took place all indices of kernel quality indicated a deterioration. Outstanding among these indices were decreases in organoleptic acceptability and percent germination. A logical hypothesis is that the underlying causes are the same
