An engrossing biography of President Lyndon Johnson from the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Team of Rivals Hailed by the New York Times as “the most penetrating, fascinating political biography I have ever read,” Doris Kearns Goodwin’s extraordinary and insightful book draws from meticulous research in addition to the author’s time spent working at the White House from 1967 to 1969. After Lyndon Johnson’s term ended, Goodwin remained his confidante and assisted in the preparation of his memoir. In Lyndon Johnson and the American Dream she traces the 36th president’s life from childhood to his early days in politics, and from his leadership of the Senate to his presidency, analyzing his dramatic years in the White House, including both his historic domestic triumphs and his failures in Vietnam. Drawn from personal anecdotes and candid conversation with Johnson, Goodwin paints a rich and complicated portrait of one of our nation’s most compelling politicians.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2016 im Fachbereich Amerikanistik - Sonstiges, Note: 1,0, Universität Osnabrück, Veranstaltung: Seminar Filmanalyse, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Regisseur Steven Spielberg hat dem 16. Präsidenten der Vereinigten Staaten und seinem politischen Schaffen, aber auch seiner Person, mit dem 2012 veröffentlichen Film "Lincoln" ein Denkmal gesetzt. Der Film behandelt die zweite Amtszeit Lincolns und im Mittelpunkt steht der Konflikt über den Erlass des 13. Zusatzartikels bzw. Lincolns Bemühungen, diesen vor Beendigung des Krieges zu erwirken. Neben lautstarken politischen Debatten im Kongress, zeichnet das Werk auch die Situation in Washington, im Weißen Haus und u. a. der Familie Lincoln zu Beginn des Jahres 1865 nach. Abraham Lincoln wird sowohl als politisches Genie als auch als menschlicher, konfliktbehafteter Vater und Ehe- und Privatmann gezeigt. Welche im Film als Tatsachen hingestellte Dinge sind tatsächliche Fakten, welche Aspekte sind rein fiktiv bzw. der filmästhetischen Wirkung wegen enthalten oder nehmen sonstigen Einfluss auf das Werk? Steven Spielbergs "Lincoln" dient als Analysegegenstand: Ist der Film historisch genau? Und was macht ihn "metadokumentarisch"?

By the award-winning author of Team of Rivals and The Bully Pulpit, Wait Till Next Year is Doris Kearns Goodwin’s touching memoir of growing up in love with her family and baseball. Set in the suburbs of New York in the 1950s, Wait Till Next Year re-creates the postwar era, when the corner store was a place to share stories and neighborhoods were equally divided between Dodger, Giant, and Yankee fans. We meet the people who most influenced Goodwin’s early life: her mother, who taught her the joy of books but whose debilitating illness left her housebound: and her father, who taught her the joy of baseball and to root for the Dodgers of Jackie Robinson, Roy Campanella, Pee Wee Reese, Duke Snider, and Gil Hodges. Most important, Goodwin describes with eloquence how the Dodgers’ leaving Brooklyn in 1957, and the death of her mother soon after, marked both the end of an era and, for her, the end of childhood.
