Most widely held works by Peter Binzen
The wreck of the Penn Central by Joseph R Daughen( Book )

8 editions published between 1971 and 1999 in English and held by 1,020 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It took ten years of laborious planning and exhaustive negotiations to create the mammoth Penn Central Railroad, the largest railroad in United States history. When the leviathan was finally born of a merger between the Pennsylvania and New York Central Railroads on February 1, 1968, the event was hailed as a great day for railroading. But the baby giant survived only 367 days. The crash of the Penn Central set a new record, this time for the largest bankruptcy the United States had ever seen
Whitetown, U.S.A by Peter Binzen( Book )

18 editions published between 1970 and 1971 in English and held by 955 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lower middle-class whites who support their police, who paste flags in their car windows, and who comprise a most volatile political constituency are the subject of this book. In particular, Kensington, a blue-collar neighborhood in Philadelphia, is examined: Irish, Italians, and Poles are found to be as angry and disaffected as their neighboring blacks. In the schools, some of the lowest reading and arithmetic scores are found in lower middle-class neighborhoods. The young people often manifest symptoms of alienation. One chapter, "The Schools of Whitetown--Then and Now," concentrates on the history of white ethnic groups in public schools. The white working class has used the public school system to move upward in American society; these people are now afraid that all resources and energy will be channeled toward the black community and away from them.

What went wrong? : the creation and collapse of the Black-Jewish Alliance by Murray Friedman( Book )

4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What went wrong between blacks and Jews? Historian Murray Friedman, also a long-time civil rights activist, takes this question as the starting point for the first authoritative history of black-Jewish relations in America. Friedman's book traces this long and complex relationship from colonial times to the present, engaging the revisionists at every point. He argues that the future of this important American partnership lies in the outcome of the struggle currently under way between black radical nationalists and blacks seeking coalition with Jews and other whites. "Memory," Friedman concludes, "is the only force that can bring about a reconciliation."
