Roosevelt, the party leader, 1932-1945 by Sean J Savage( Book )

8 editions published between 1991 and 2015 in English and held by 553 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

FDR -- the wily political opportunist glowing with charismatic charm, a leader venerated and hated with equal vigor -- such is one common notion of a president elected to an unprecedented four terms. But in this first comprehensive study of Roosevelt's leadership of the Democratic party, Sean Savage reveals a different man. He contends that, far from being a mere opportunist, Roosevelt brought to the party a conscious agenda, a longterm strategy of creating a liberal Democracy that would be an enduring majority force in American politics. The roots of Roosevelt's plan for the party ran back to
Truman and the Democratic Party by Sean J Savage( Book )

9 editions published between 1997 and 2015 in English and held by 539 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What best defines a Democrat in the American political arena - idealistic reformer or pragmatic politician? Harry Truman adopted both roles and in so doing defined the nature of his presidency. Truman and the Democratic Party is the first book to deal exclusively with the president's relationship with the Democratic party and his status as party leader. Sean J. Savage addresses Truman's twin roles of party regular and liberal reformer, examining the tension that arose from this duality and the consequences of that tension for Truman's political career. Drawing on personal interviews with former Truman administration members and party officials and on archival materials - most notably papers of the Democratic National Committee at the Harry S. Truman Library - Savage has produced a fresh perspective that is both shrewd and insightful. Truman and the Democratic Party offers historians and political scientists a new way of looking at the Truman administration and its impact on key public policies
The senator from New England : the rise of JFK by Sean J Savage( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John F. Kennedy's path to the presidency began during his eight years of service in the United States Senate. In The Senator from New England, Sean J. Savage contends that Kennedy initially pursued a centrist, bipartisan course in his rhetoric and policy behavior regarding the regional policy interests of New England. Following his narrow defeat for the Democratic vice presidential nomination in 1956 and his nationwide speaking campaign for Adlai Stevenson, JFK's rhetoric and policy behavior became more partisan and liberal, especially during the 1958 midterm elections. While JFK claimed that he still protected and promoted the policy interests of New England on a bipartisan basis, he used his speaking engagements to interact with Democratic politicians throughout New England in an effort to secure the entire region's delegate votes at the 1960 Democratic National Convention. Based on the use of primary sources, archives, and special collections from four presidential libraries, the Library of Congress, Boston College, the Margaret Chase Smith Library, the Massachusetts Historial Society, and other institutions, The Sentator from New England provides an unrivaled glimpse into Kennedy's senate career and early presidential campaign strategy. -- from dust jacket
