Truman defeats Dewey by Gary Donaldson( Book )

11 editions published between 1998 and 2015 in English and held by 868 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1948 presidential campaign was a watershed event in the history of American politics. It encompassed Truman's rousing "Give 'em Hell Harry" speeches and intriguing behind-the-scenes political maneuvering. It was the first election after Roosevelt's death and the last before the advent of television. It marked the new political prominence of African American voters and organized labor, as well as the South's declining influence over the Democratic Party
The first modern campaign : Kennedy, Nixon, and the election of 1960 by Gary Donaldson( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 654 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The two men on the screen could not know what was to come in their lives, and what was to happen to a nation as elections went electric. Donaldson (history, Xavier U.) concentrates wisely on the political developments and the fine points of the first media-driven presidential election campaign, when both Kennedy and Nixon were feeling their way across a political and journalistic minefield. He covers the debates, of course, but also carefully examines the marketing of the candidates, the political and electoral fallout of campaign events, and the reasons why those haunting images are etched deep into every campaign since.

America at war since 1945 : politics and diplomacy in Korea, Vietnam, and the Gulf War by Gary Donaldson( Book )

11 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focusing primarily on politics and foreign policy, America at War analyzes America's involvement in three wars since the end of World War II: Korea, Vietnam, and the Gulf War. The main questions asked are: How did the U.S. become involved in these wars? How were the wars conducted? And how did the U.S. get out of these wars?''In Korea and Vietnam, the U.S. fought to show the world that it would stand up to the evils of communism; that it could be counted on (with money, advisors, or even a major military effort if necessary) to halt the advance of communism. But in both wars, the U.S. showed itself to be militarily vulnerable. The Gulf WarÑagainst tyranny, not communismÑrestored the U.S. to its position of prominence in the world, reaffirming its role as a world leader and a defender of freedom

When America Liked Ike : How Moderates Won the 1952 Presidential Election and Reshaped American Politics by Gary Donaldson( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, Gary Donaldson argues that the 1952 presidential election, which exposed deep internal divisions on the left and the right, set the stage for the current U.S. political landscape. This book will prove an invaluable resource to readers, students, and scholars interested in rooting out the origins of our contemporary political landscape, on the right and the left"--
Modern America : a documentary history of the nation since 1945( Book )

6 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This primary source reader assembles key documents and firsthand accounts that are emblematic of American life from the end of World War II to the present. Designed to complement a core text for a typical post-1945 U.S. history course, the book offers conciseness and selectivity with balanced coverage of domestic and foreign, societal and cultural issues grouped together chronologically. The readings afford students compelling and sometimes startling insights into the nation's postwar adaptation to its new position of global power and responsibility, wealth, and rapid social change; on through years of energy and ambition, conflict and tragedy; to the post-Vietnam malaise and the rise of Ronald Reagan, the frenzied nineties, and the arrival of the new millennium. Each chapter includes an introduction that sets the documents in historical context, a biographical sketch of a significant person of the time, study questions, and suggestions for further reading. - Publisher

America at war since 1945 : politics and diplomacy in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan by Gary Donaldson( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Focusing primarily on politics and foreign policy, America at War since 1945 analyzes America's involvement in its several wars since the end of World War II. The main questions asked are: How did the U.S. become involved in these wars? How were the wars conducted? And how did the U.S. get out of these wars? In Korea and Vietnam, the US fought to show the world that it would stand up to the evils of communismthat it could be counted on (with money, advisors, or even a major military effort if necessary) to halt the advance of communism. But in both wars, the US showed itself to be militarily vulnerable. In its wars against radical Islam since 9/11, the United States has made use of its military to protect its interests in the Middle East, particularly its oil interests, while trying to spread its ideas of democracy, constitutionalism, and the rule of law. The lessons are clear: America's values often do not translate into the less-developed world. In 2016, as the debate over ISIS intensifies, America at War since 1945 reminds us that the history of US postwar military conflict has seldom been marked by clearly defined goals and outcomes." --Publisher's description
