Warren G. Magnuson and the shaping of twentieth-century America by Shelby Scates( )

6 editions published between 1997 and 2015 in English and held by 1,051 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Warren G. Magnuson served as U.S. senator from the state of Washington for six terms. The sheer sweep of his accomplishments is astonishing: authoring the Civil Rights Act, protecting Puget Sound, saving Boeing for Seattle, championing consumer protection legislation, reorganizing the railroads, and godfathering the electrification of the Pacific Northwest by pressing for Columbia and Snake River dams. He pushed federal aid to education, while holding down Pentagon budgets, and established the National Institutes of Health (and kept research funds flowing liberally) while arguing throughout the McCarthy era against U.S. isolation from China. He did much more. But he was also a boon whiskey-and-poker companion to Presidents Roosevelt, Truman, Kennedy, and Johnson
Maurice Rosenblatt and the fall of Joseph McCarthy by Shelby Scates( Book )

6 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Maurice Rosenblatt was one of the principal behind-the-scenes engineers of the 1954 overthrow of Senator Joseph McCarthy, the rabidly anti-Communist chairman of the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations. Most Americans today either remember or have learned about McCarthy ("Are you now or have you ever been a member of the Communist Party?") and "McCarthyism," the fever of paranoia over Communist subversives that afflicted the nation in the early days of the Cold War. Few remember - or have ever heard - the name of Maurice Rosenblatt."

"Reporting the political beat brought Scates to Baton Rouge and New Orleans to observe the remarkable performance and influence of Earl Long as governor of Louisiana; in 1957 to Little Rock, Arkansas, to witness a Constitutional crisis, the early struggle to integrate the public schools; to Oklahoma City and Dallas; and to Washington, D.C., where he became familiar with both the corridors of Congress and Lyndon Johnson's Oval Office and Air Force One. He was in Israel during the 1967 Six-Day War and its aftermath; in Lebanon and Egypt to learn about the Palestine Liberation Organization; in the Suez to investigate the "War of Attrition," and in Cambodia during guerrilla fighting against the Vietnamese Army."
