Brokaw, Tom.  
The Greatest Generation.

Publisher: Random House, NY [c1998].
'When I first came to fully understand what effect members of the World War II generation had on my life and the world we occupy today, I quickly resolved to tell their stories as a small gesture of personal appreciation. As I did that... it had the effect of a chain letter that no one wanted to disrupt. Everyone seemed to want to share their own stories of parents, other family members, or acquaintances... this was a mother lode of material that deserved the permanence a book would represent.' Sections include Ordinary People; Home Front; Heroes; Women In Uniform & Out; Shame; Love, Marriage & Commitment; Famous People; The Arena. xxx, 412 p., index, photos, 24.5 cm.; pictorial dj; VG+. 30547.

Along the way, we meet a host of fascinating characteers as they attempt to advance their nations' interests--and their personal ambitions--through diplomacy, threats, lies, bribery, and treachery.."

DJ browning at extremities, front flap creased; in Brodart archival cover. White describes his approach to writing the history of the 1968 Presidential election: "..history can be approached as journeyman reporters generally do: as a study of men making up their minds, prisoners of their information, captives of events, forced to decision when scissored by clash, acting either clumsily or gracefully when hit by the unexpected. This . approach does not make for neat truths or cunning analysis. But that is the way history appears, as it happens, to those who must report its junction points." Shipping weight 3 lbs.

DJ browning at extremities, front flap creased; in Brodart archival cover. From the Prologue: "Rarely had two candidates given Americans sharper choices. There was no doubt that the American people had grown suspicious about all governmental power--suspicious of what that power could do, or undo, in their home cities; suspicious of its dictates to their communities in race relations; suspicious of its conscription of their sons to fight abroad; suspicious of its control over their purse and tax burdens. In this sense, Richard Nixon convinced the Americans, by more than three to two, that he could use power better than George McGovern--and how that came about is the story of this book."
