Images from the arsenal of democracy by Charles K Hyde( )

10 editions published between 1900 and 2014 in English and held by 908 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A selection of nearly three hundred documentary photos, Images from the Arsenal of Democracy spans from 1940 until the end of the war, presenting up-close, rarely seen views of newly built plants and repurposed production lines, a staggering variety of war products and components, and the many workers behind Detroit's wartime production miracles. The human faces that Hyde presents are especially compelling, as photos show the critical role played by previously underused workers--namely women and African Americans.--Dust jacket

Riding the roller coaster : a history of the Chrysler Corporation by Charles K Hyde( Book )

9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 658 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book covers the period from 1925, when Walter T. Chrysler founded the company, to 1998, when it merged with Daimler-Benz. Chrysler made a late entrance into the industry as an independent producer, but later absorbed (in whole or in part) Chalmers, Maxwell, Dodge Brothers, Hudson, Nash, and American Motors Corporation. The author traces this journey, explaining the company's leadership in automotive engineering, its styling successes and failures, its changing management, and its activities from auto racing to defense production to real estate. Throughout, the colorful personalities of its leaders - including Chrysler himself and Lee Iacocca - emerge as strong forces in the company's development, imparting a risk-taking mentality that gave the company its verve."--Jacket
Arsenal of democracy : the American automobile industry in World War II by Charles K Hyde( )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout World War II, Detroit's automobile manufacturers accounted for one-fifth of the dollar value of the nation's total war production, and this amazing output from "the arsenal of democracy" directly contributed to the allied victory. In fact, automobile makers achieved such production miracles that many of their methods were adopted by other defense industries, particularly the aircraft industry. In Arsenal of Democracy: The American Automobile Industry in World War II, award-winning historian Charles K. Hyde details the industry's transition to a wartime production powerhouse and some of its notable achievements along the way. Hyde examines several innovative cooperative relationships that developed between the executive branch of the federal government, U.S. military services, automobile industry leaders, auto industry suppliers, and the United Automobile Workers (UAW) union, which set up the industry to achieve production miracles. He goes on to examine the struggles and achievements of individual automakers during the war years in producing items like aircraft engines, aircraft components, and complete aircraft; tanks and other armored vehicles; jeeps, trucks, and amphibians; guns, shells, and bullets of all types; and a wide range of other weapons and war goods ranging from search lights to submarine nets and gyroscopes. Hyde also considers the important role played by previously underused workers-namely African Americans and women-in the war effort and their experiences on the line."--Publisher's description

Storied independent automakers : Nash, Hudson, and American Motors by Charles K Hyde( Book )

8 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With roots extending back to the first decade of the twentieth century, Nash Motor Company and the Hudson Motor Car Company managed to compete and even prosper as independent producers until they merged in 1954 to form the American Motors Company, which itself remained independent until it was bought in 1987 by the Chrysler Corporation. In Storied Independent Automakers, renowned automotive scholar Charles K. Hyde argues that these companies, while so far neglected by auto history scholars, made notable contributions to automotive engineering and styling and were an important part of the American automobile industry." "Hyde investigates how the relatively small corporations struggled in a postwar marketplace increasingly dominated by the giant firms of Ford, General Motors, and Chrysler, which benefited from economies of scale in styling, engineering, tooling, marketing, and sales. He examines the innovations that kept the independents' products distinctive from those of the Big Three and allowed them to survive and sometimes prosper against their larger competitors. Hyde also focuses on the visionary leaders who managed the companies, including Charles Nash, Roy D. Chapin, Howard Coffin, George Mason, George Romney, and Roy D. Chapin Jr. Finally, Hyde analyzes the ultimate failure of the American Motors Company and the legacy it left for carmakers and consumers today."--Jacket

A study of John and Horace Dodge, the Dodge Brothers, and their automobile company, chronicling their lives -- from their childhood in Niles, Michigan, to their years of learning the machinist's trade in Battle Creek, and other cities -- and examining their influence on automotive manufacturing and marketing trends in the early part of the 20th century
Copper for America : the United States copper industry from colonial times to the 1990s by Charles K Hyde( Book )

7 editions published between 1998 and 2016 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This comprehensive history of copper mining tells the full story of the industry that produces one of America's most important metals. The first inclusive account of U.S. copper in one volume, Copper for America relates the discovery and development of America's major copper-producing areas--the eastern United States, Tennessee, Michigan, Montana, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, and Alaska--from colonial times to the present. Starting with the predominance of New England and the Middle Atlantic states in the early nineteenth century, Copper for America traces the industry's migration to Michigan in mid-century and to Montana, Arizona, and other western states in the late nineteenth century. The book also examines the U.S. copper industry's decline in the twentieth century, studying the effects of strong competition from foreign copper industries and unforeseen changes in the national and global copper markets. An extensively documented chronicle of the rise and fall of individual mines, companies, and regions, Copper for America will prove an essential resource for economic and business historians, historians of technology and mining, and western historians

Iran : the case for democratic containment by Charles K Hyde( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper discusses the evolution of US policy towards Iran and makes recommendations for a policy based on the current political environment in Iran and the unique characteristics of the Iranian constitutional system, which has increasingly pitted reformist against hard-line theocrats. It proposes that by basing US policy on long-standing values we can avoid the mistakes of the past and realize our national interests in relation to Iran. This paper argues that policy options based primarily on regime change through military means, cooperative action and engagement are insufficient to accomplish the US end-state objectives and proposes a values-based policy of democratic containment. Democratic containment supports reform by depriving the theocratic regime of the propaganda, economic and political leverage needed to hold back the tide of a young reform-minded population while avoiding the pitfalls of preemption and engagement. While maintaining the high ground of US values, democratic containment repudiates past and present support for undemocratic Iranian regimes and returns US policy to its historic status as a shining city on a hill
