Most widely held works by James W Johnson
Mo : the life & times of Morris K. Udall by Donald W Carson( Book )

5 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Journalists Donald Carson and James Johnson interviewed more than one hundred of Udall's associates and family members to create an unusually rich portrait. They recall Udall's Mormon boyhood in Arizona when he lost an eye at age six, his service during World War II, his brief career in professional basketball, and his work as a lawyer and county prosecutor, which earned him a reputation for fairness and openness."
One step from the White House : the rise and fall of Senator William F. Knowland by Gayle B Montgomery( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this definitive biography of one of California's most influential politicians, Gayle B. Montgomery and James W. Johnson trace the disappointments and failed aspirations that led to Knowland's tragic suicide. At the same time, they offer a stark and compelling account of American politics at the height of the cold war." "As the last Republican Senate majority leader before Bob Dole, Knowland and his counterpart in the U.S. Senate, Lyndon B. Johnson, set the cold war policies for the 1950s." "Provoking turmoil in the Republican Party, Knowland gave up the most powerful seat in the Senate to run for governor of California, a position he hoped would serve as a stepping-stone to the presidency. But he lost the 1958 election, a dramatic defeat that destroyed his own political career and paved the way for Richard Nixon's eventual ascendancy to the White House. Knowland returned to Oakland and took over as publisher of the Oakland Tribune. A ruined marriage, lavish lifestyle, and poor management of the newspaper led Knowland into a downward spiral of debt and emotional desperation and ultimately to his tragic end at the Russian River."--Jacket

"In the mid-1950s three unrecruited black basketball players, coached by a white former prison guard who had never before coached a college team, led a small Jesuit university in San Francisco to two national titles.

Double no-hit : Johnny Vander Meer's historic night under the lights by James W Johnson( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The average pitcher has about a .000645 chance of throwing a no-hitter. In the spring of 1938, Cincinnati Reds rookie pitcher Johnny Vander Meer pitched two, back to back. The feat has never been duplicated, which comes as no surprise to sports professionals and aficionados alike. Decade after decade, in one poll after another (from Sport magazine, Sports Illustrated, and ESPN), Vander Meer's consecutive no-hitters turn up as one of baseball's greatest and most untouchable achievements. Double No-Hit offers an inning-by-inning account of that historic second consecutive no-hitter accomplished d

Measurement of pacification progress in Vietnam (U) by James W Johnson( Book )

2 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of the study was to develop and test a mathematical model, employing the standard linear multiple regression method, to determine whether quantitative measurements of progress in Vietnam, based on data generated in the field, could be made. A satisfactory model would help also to identify and measure factors affecting progress, provide a useful predictive device, and offer a method for checking the field reporting systems. Progress was measured by the proportion of the population under the control of both sides, changes, and the rate of change. Work covered a 22-month test period, May 1964-Feb 1966, for all 43 provinces; the province data were combined to produce corps tactical zone and countrywide assessments. Statistical tests of the method were satisfactory. A comparison between the reported and computed data was made; at province level percentage differences were less than 5 percent in the majority of cases; at corps level, less than 2 percent; and countrywide, less than 1 percent. The multiple regression calculations were completely computerized, offering rapid assessments. The quality of the results indicated that the technique could help to determine progress, estimate force requirements, and to predict future trends. (Author)
