The world according to Peter Drucker by Jack Beatty( Book )

22 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 1,589 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The World According to Peter Drucker is the first biography and concise intellectual portrait of one of the twentieth century's great minds - "the greatest thinker management theory has produced," in the words of The Economist. Written with Drucker's full cooperation, the book ranges over six decades of Drucker's work from his early antifascist writings to his very latest books. The reader learns the inside story of why Drucker's classic study of General Motors, Concept of the Corporation, was scorned by GM's storied chairman, Alfred P. Sloan; watches over Drucker's shoulder as he virtually invents management and management theory; and notes the recurring paradox of Drucker's career: the "man who invented the corporate society" has been a sometimes sulphuric critic of capitalist excess. Indeed, Drucker, the author writes, should be seen as "a moralist of our business civilization.""--Jacket
Age of betrayal : the triumph of money in America, 1865-1900 by Jack Beatty( Book )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,055 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A fresh look at the Gilded Age, when an oligarchy of wealth triumphed over democracy. At the end of the Civil War, with the rebellion put down and slavery ended, America belonged to Lincoln's "plain people." But "government of the people" and economic democracy were betrayed by political parties that fanned memories of the war to distract Americans from government of the corporation. Jay Gould, the "Mephisto of Wall Street," never runs for office, but he rules. A depression brought on by railroad speculation throws millions out of work, the hungry riot for bread in Buffalo, the homeless sleep on Chicago's streets, strikers are shot, and the nation's presidents avert their eyes. God instructs President McKinley to invade Cuba and seize the Philippines from Spain; turning from liberators to occupiers, U.S. troops slaughter and starve the (Roman Catholic) Filipinos in the name of "Christianizing" them.--From publisher description
Colossus : how the corporation changed America by Jack Beatty( Book )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 1,002 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Weaving historical source material with his own analysis, author Beatty traces the rise of the American corporation, from its beginnings in the 17th century through today, illustrating how it has come to loom over the economy, society, culture, and politics. Through readings made up of historical and contemporary documents, opinion pieces, reportage, biographies, company histories, and scenes from literature, all introduced and explicated by Beatty, he makes a case that the American corporation has been, for good and ill, the primary maker and manager of change in modern America. From the slave trade and the transcontinental railroad to the software giants and the multimedia conglomerates, Beatty shows how the corporation emerged as the foundation of representative government in the United States, as the builder of the young nation's public works, as the conqueror of American space, and as the inexhaustible engine of economic growth from the Civil War to today.--From publisher description

Mayor for a new America by Thomas M Menino( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A revealing memoir by Boston's beloved five-term mayor, explaining the power behind Boston's success and lessons for Washington power brokers After twenty years of service, Mayor Thomas Menino is stepping down from his office as one of the longest-serving major-city mayors in United States history--and one of the most popular politicians in modern memory. His political career has stretched from the busing crisis of the 1970s to the city's extraordinary response to the Boston Marathon bombings in 2013. Menino tells exclusive behind-the-scenes stories of urban politics and provides inspiration for Washington with his proven, people-focused method: "Do the small stuff so you can win the credibility to do the big stuff." He's not known as a fancy talker, but he gets things done. Under his wing, the city has enjoyed unprecedented economic growth while fostering a new attitude of acceptance. Menino shows how a very old city shook off its Puritan roots and racial tensions to become a truly twenty-first-century city"--

The lost history of 1914 : how the Great War was not inevitable by Jack Beatty( Book )

7 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Lost History of 1914, Jack Beatty offers a highly original view of World War I, testing against fresh evidence the long-dominant assumption that it was inevitable. Beatty presents the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand not as the catalyst of a war that would have broken out over some other crisis, but rather as "its all-but unique precipitant." Beatty shows how a possible military coup in Germany; an imminent civil war in Britain; or the murder trial of the wife of the likely next premier of France, who sought detente with Germany, might have derailed the war or brought it to a different end
