Most widely held works by Nancy Beck Young
Lou Henry Hoover : activist first lady by Nancy Beck Young( Book )

6 editions published between 2004 and 2016 in English and held by 387 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."

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This wartime political dynamic established the dominant patterns for national politics through the remainder of the century.

Wright Patman : populism, liberalism, & the American dream by Nancy Beck Young( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wright Patman often operated on the margins of Washington politics, but through the force of his personality and his effectiveness as a speaker, he was able to coerce his colleagues to address his reform agenda. His abilities as a campaigner and his dependability as a Democratic vote in Congress on all questions except civil rights made him an important though sometimes unwelcome ally for the Democratic presidents under whom he served."
