Lou Henry Hoover : activist first lady by Nancy Beck Young ( Book )
3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Young traces Hoover's many philanthropic efforts both before and during the Hoover presidency - contrasting them with those of her husband - and places her public activities in the larger context of contemporary women's activism. She shows that, unlike her predecessors, Hoover did more than entertain: she revolutionized the office of first lady." "Yet as Young reveals, Hoover was constrained as first lady by her inability to achieve the same results that she had previously accomplished in her very public career for the volunteer community. As diligently as she worked to combat the hardship of the Depression for average Americans by mobilizing private relief efforts, her efforts ultimately had little effect."

Wright Patman : populism, liberalism, & the American dream by Nancy Beck Young ( Book )
3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The last major fight of his career was his futile effort to retain his chairmanship of the Banking and Currency Committee in 1975. His defeat was a testimonial to the changes liberalism underwent during his career in Washington, D.C. A new generation of reformers no longer cared about the economic populism that drove much of his agenda for forty-seven years." "This book is essential reading for anyone interested in twentieth-century politics and policy development."--BOOK JACKET
