Kennedy, Johnson, and the quest for justice : the civil rights tapes by Jonathan Rosenberg( Book )

6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, Jonathan Rosenberg and Zachary Karabell present the story of desegregation at Ole Miss; the effort by Martin Luther King, Jr. to dismantle Jim Crow in Birmingham, Alabama; the March on Washington; the aftermath of the church bombing that killed four young girls in September 1963; and numerous other key moments in the history of the civil rights movement, but from an altogether new perspective, that of the White House." "As part of the Presidential Recordings Project at the University of Virginia's Miller Center of Public Affairs, this book includes actual transcripts of the secret recordings - most never before published - that Presidents Kennedy and Johnson made of their meetings and telephone conversations between the fall of 1962 and the groundbreaking passage of the Civil Rights Act in the summer of 1964. By setting these transcripts in an historical narrative, Rosenberg and Karabell present a seamless account of two tumultuous years in America's struggle for racial justice and highlight the pivotal role played by Kennedy and Johnson in ending legal segregation."--Jacket
Chester Alan Arthur by Zachary Karabell( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chester Alan Arthur never dreamed that one day he would be president of the United States. A successful lawyer, Arthur had been forced out as the head of the Custom House of the Port of New York in 1877 in a power struggle between the two wings of the Republican Party. He became such a celebrity that he was nominated for vice president in 1880 -- despite his never having run for office before. Elected alongside James A. Garfield, Arthur found his life transformed just four months into his term, when an assassin shot and killed Garfield, catapulting Arthur into the presidency. The assassin was a deranged man who thought he deserved a federal job through the increasingly corrupt "spoils system." To the surprise of many, Arthur, a longtime beneficiary of that system, saw that the time had come for reform. His opportunity came in the winter of 1882-83, when he pushed through the Pendleton Act, which created a professional civil service and set America on a course toward greater reforms in the decades to come

Superfusion : how China and America became one economy and why the world's prosperity depends on it by Zachary Karabell( Book )

8 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 781 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the past decade, the Chinese and U.S. economies have fused to become one integrated system. How these countries manage their relationship will determine whether the coming decades witness increased prosperity or greater instability. After 1989, the Chinese leadership adopted a policy of aggressive economic reform and courted U.S. companies and expertise. Economist Karabell charts how integral those companies--including Federal Express, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Avon, and Wal-Mart--have been to China's success and how integral China has been to their growth. Though accelerated by the admission of China to the World Trade Organization in 2001, the economies began to fuse without attracting much notice. Preoccupied with terrorism, the United States soon found itself deeply in debt to China while also reaping the rewards of China's growth. Now both countries find themselves in an unfamiliar and challenging position, as China begins to question the wisdom of that embrace.--From publisher description
What's college for? : the struggle to define American higher education by Zachary Karabell( Book )

7 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 757 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Zachary Karabell spent over a year traveling the country interviewing students, graduate students, faculty, and adjunct teachers, and the result is a portrait of American higher education that is neither conservative nor liberal and that needs to be taken seriously." "The overwhelming majority of today's students are working-class people seeking education to get a job; they are not seeking a liberal education, nor planning to go on to graduate school. Most faculty members, products of elite graduate schools that have insulated them from the needs of real-world people, are often profoundly ill-equipped to handle this changing student body. By exploring the myriad perspectives of these conflicting expectations Karabell concludes that a radical democratization of higher education is not only inevitable, it is desirable, and it will require dramatic changes in the structure and presumptions about education beyond the high school level."--Jacket
