Parish priest : Father Michael McGivney and American Catholicism by Douglas Brinkley( Book )

15 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 1,060 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The son of Irish immigrants, McGivney was a man to whom "family values" represented more than mere rhetoric. And he left a legacy of hope still celebrated around the world. In the late 1800s, discrimination against American Catholics was widespread. Many Catholics struggled to find work and ended up in infernolike mills, where an injury or death would leave a family penniless. Called to action in 1882 by his sympathy for these suffering people, Father McGivney founded the Knights of Columbus, an organization that has helped to save countless families from the indignity of destitution. From its uncertain beginnings, it has grown to an international membership of 1.7 million men. At heart, though, Father McGivney was never anything more than an American parish priest, and nothing less than that, either--perhaps the most beloved parish priest in U.S. history.--From publisher description

Cheaters always win : the story of America by J. M Fenster( Book )

5 editions published between 2019 and 2020 in English and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A social history of cheating and how American history--through real estate, sports, finance, academics, and of course politics--has had its unfair share of rigged results and widened the margins on its gray areas. Drawing from the intriguing (and sometimes unbelievable) true stories of the lives of everyday Americans, historian Julie M. Fenster traces the history of the weakening of our national ethics through the practice of cheating. From marital infidelity to financial fraud; rigged sports competitions to corruption in politics and the American education system; nuclear weaponry to beauty pageants; hospitals, TV gameshows, and charities; nothing and no one is exempt. And far from being ostracized, cheaters in every sphere continue to survive and even thrive, casting their influence over the rest of our society. And nowhere is this more obvious than in the recent tectonic shift in politics, where a revolution in our collective attitude toward fraudsters has ushered in a new kind of leadership. Part history of an all-American tradition, part dissection of an ongoing national crisis, Cheaters Always Win is irresistible reading--a smart, sardonic, and scintillating look into the practice that made America what it is today
For the next generation : a wake-up call to solving our nation's problems by Debbie Wasserman Schultz( Book )

3 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Congresswoman and Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz challenges the nation to resolve tough issues for future generations. America has witnessed the dangers that come with shortsightedness, she writes. If we want to ensure prosperity for ourselves and an improved way of life for young Americans, we have to change, starting now. We need to create jobs, turn around our economy, formulate a long-term energy solution, reform immigration policies, and enhance and expand health-care coverage. Yet these important issues have been sidelined by gridlock in a Congress that is too concerned about the next election to worry about the future. The group of Americans who have the most to lose from this dysfunction are the ones least represented in government: America's children. This book is one mother's challenge to her congressional colleagues and to the rest of the nation, to adopt a parent's perspective for doing right by our kids.--From publisher description

Ether day : the strange tale of America's greatest medical discovery and the haunted men who made it by J. M Fenster( Book )

6 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ether Day is the story of America's first major scientific discovery - the use of anesthesia - told in an absorbing narrative that traces the dawn of modern surgery through the lives of three extraordinary men. Ironically, the "discovery" was really no discovery at all: Ether and nitrous oxide had been known for more than forty years to cause insensitivity to pain, yet, with names like "laughing gas," they were used almost solely for entertainment. Meanwhile, patients still underwent operations during which they saw, heard, and felt every cut the surgeon made. The image of a grim and grisly operating room, like the one in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, was in fact starkly accurate in portraying the conditions of surgery before anesthesia." "With hope for relief seemingly long gone, the breakthrough finally came about by means of a combination of coincidence and character, as a cunning Boston dentist crossed paths with an inventive colleague from Hartford and a brilliant Harvard-trained physician. William Morton, Horace Wells, and Charles Jackson: a con man, a dreamer, and an intellectual. Though Wells was crushed by derision when he tried to introduce anesthetics, Morton prevailed, with help from Jackson. The result was Ether Day, October 16, 1846, celebrated around the world. By that point, though, no honor was enough. Ether Day was not only the dawn of modern surgery, but the beginning of commercialized medicine as well, as Morton patented the discovery."--Jacket
Jefferson's America : the President, the purchase, and the explorers who transformed a nation by J. M Fenster( Recording )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Almost everyone who has taken a U.S. history course is familiar with Jefferson's Louisiana Purchase and the travels of Lewis and Clark, but that's not where this formative episode in American history begins or ends. In fact, Jefferson sent four other expeditions West; Zebulon Pike was dispatched on two missions: first, to the headwaters of the Mississippi, and second, toward what is now Colorado. William Dunbar and Dr. George Hunter explored northern Louisiana and Arkansas. Peter Custis and Thomas Freeman followed the Red River of North Texas and Oklahoma. The stakes for American expansion were enormously high at a time when Britain, France, and Spain were also all vying for control of the vast expanse of land west of the Mississippi River, the geopolitics of discovery were paramount
