Pacific Time on Target

and | Filed under: Military History
Donner Cover

As a married man and Stanford graduate student nearing thirty, Christopher Donner would likely have qualified for an exemption from the draft. Like most of his generation, however, he responded promptly to the call to arms after Pearl Harbor. His wartime experiences in the Pacific Theater were seared into his consciousness, and in early 1946 he set out to preserve those memories while they were still fresh. Sixty-five years later, Donner’s memoir is now available to the public.

 


Pantaloons and Power

| Filed under: Clothing & Costume, History
Fischer Book Cover

In Pantaloons and Power, Gayle V. Fischer depicts how the reformers’ denouncement of conventional dress highlighted the role of clothing in the struggle of power relations between the sexes. Wearing pantaloons was considered a subversive act and was often met with social ostracism. This carefully researched interdisciplinary study successfully combines the fields of costume history, women’s history, material culture, and social history to tell the story of one highly charged dress reform and its resonance in nineteenth-century society.

 


Paper Cathedrals

| Filed under: Poetry, Wick First Book
Creech Book Cover

Displaying a range of voices and subjects—from dramatic monologues in the voices of Judas Iscariot and John the Baptist to harrowing personal lyrics of family, time, memory, and loss—Creech’s poems examine the difficulties of belief and the transcendent possibilities of common experience, pushing beyond mere surfaces to explore the “kingdom of desire.” Paper Cathedrals confronts the tensions between the here and hereafter, gravity and grace, and religious faith and an allegiance to the passing, sensual world.

 


The Papers of Robert A. Taft, Volume 1: 1889–1938

| Filed under: History
Wunderlin Book Cover

Taft was the most prominent critic of mid-twentieth-century American liberalism. As a leading Republican senator and contender for the presidency, he played a significant role in the development of party politics, opposing the expanding administrative capacities of the federal government and the enlargement of America’s international commitments. Recent events, domestic and foreign, have given a contemporary relevance to his critique. The Papers of Robert A. Taft will be a major addition to the published papers of prominent modern leaders.

 


The Papers of Robert A. Taft, Volume 2: 1939-1944

| Filed under: History
Second Book Cover

Robert A. Taft, prominent political leader and vocal critic of the expanding powers of the federal government and of the enlargement of America’s international commitments, played a significant role in the development of Republican party politics. This second volume of The Papers of Robert A. Taft documents the Ohioan’s first term in the United States Senate and marks his entrance onto the national political and policy-making stage.

 


The Papers of Robert A. Taft, Volume 3: 1945-1948

| Filed under: History
Third Book Cover

This third volume in the series documents Robert A. Taft’s experience through World War II and his early postwar years. After winning a tough reelection battle as senator from Ohio in 1944, Taft move steadily upward in the leadership ranks of his party and assumed a preeminent position among the bipartisan group of conservatives that increasingly dominated Congress. This volume continues the contribution that The Papers of Robert A. Taft provides to the study of United State political and diplomatic history, Ohio history, and conservative political theory.

 


The Papers of Robert A. Taft, Volume 4: 1949-1953

| Filed under: History
Fourth Book Cover

This fourth and final volume of a selected edition of the papers of Robert A. Taft documents Taft’s post–World War II and congressional experiences until his death in 1953. Regardless of his conservative commitments, Taft saw the need for responsible reform. In the immediate postwar years, he recognized the need for federal aid to education, for social welfare legislation that assisted the poor, and for federal support for public housing. Out of political necessity, Taft became more partisan as the 1950 senatorial campaign approached, convinced he had to win reelection in Ohio by a large margin if he was to establish himself as a frontrunner in the primary campaign for the 1952 presidential election. Moderate Republicans spurned Taft and doubted that the serious, partisan senator could successfully head a national ticket. His support, nevertheless, was essential to the 1952 Eisenhower presidential campaign.
