Reagan( Visual )

One of the most popular presidents ever, Ronald Wilson Reagan served two terms in office and left with his reputation intact as a charismatic, charming leader who managed to avoid many of the major pitfalls of the leaders before him. A one-time actor, he became an ideologue who preached a simple gospel of optimism, lower taxes, less government and anti-communism. Often underestimated, his successes surprised many of his greatest detractors

Ulysses S. Grant : warrior, president( Visual )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and held by 742 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This biography of Ulysses S. Grant paints a nuanced portrait of one of America's most paradoxical leaders. The greatest hero of the Civil War, Grant was a brilliant military strategist who rose from obscurity to a rank held previously only by George Washington. However, the strength of the Confederate resistance forced Grant into a hard war that destroyed the South and led to his being labeled "a butcher." Propelled into the White House by his battlefield success, Grant lacked the political skills to deal with the issues of the era: reconstructing the South and managing the nation's rapidly expanding economy. His two terms were rocked by bitter racial conflict and corruption scandals. Seven years after leaving office, Grant was financially ruined by the collapse of an investment house in which he had placed his assets. He spent his final days in a race against time as he battled cancer while finishing his epic war memoirs

The Great fever( Visual )

In June 1900, Major Walter Reed, Chief Surgeon of the U.S. Army, led a medical team to Cuba on a mission to investigate yellow fever. For more than two hundred years U.S. cities had experienced outbreaks of the disease, which killed an estimated 100,000 people in the 19th century alone. Shortly after Reed and his team arrived in Havana, they began testing the radical theories of a Cuban doctor, Carlos Finlay, who believed that mosquitoes spread yellow fever. This production documents the efforts of Reed's medical team to verify Finlay's theory. Eventually their discovery enabled the U.S. to successfully eradicate the disease among workers constructing the Panama Canal, making possible the completion of the strategic waterway. When yellow fever struck New Orleans in 1905, federal public health officials launched an aggressive mosquito-eradication campaign and successfully ended the epidemic. It was the last yellow fever outbreak in the United States, and the first major public health triumph of the 20th century

Reagan : an American story by Adriana Bosch( Book )

7 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book Reagan, is the first of a series of six titles to be developed directly from the films of The American Experience. Ronald Reagan, the fortieth president of the United States, held office from January 1981 to January 1989 -- eight highly eventful, crucial years, a time of high prosperity and painful recession, of much star-spangled optimism and the terrible, over-hanging fear that the world might be blown to pieces. It was then, too, that the Cold War all but ended, a turning point in history, the importance of which can hardly be overstated. What distinguishes this book and film project are the exclusive interviews with so many protagonists in the drama, including Mikhail Gorbachev, as well as members of the President's own family: Nancy, Maureen, Ron and Patti. Indeed, this is the first film biography of Ronald Reagan in which his family agreed to appear. - Foreword
