Sinopsis: Book by Hoerr John

Críticas: In "Harry, Tom, and Father Rice" Hoerr has turned his gaze to East Pittsburgh, the original home of Westinghouse, to tell the story of his own Uncle Harry. Harry Davenport was elected to the U.S. Congress after World War II with the backing of the United Electrical, Radio & Machine Workers of America (CIO). When he sought re-election two years later, he was sharply attacked by Father Charles Owen Rice, the well-known pro-labor, anti-Communist priest with a large following among union members around Pitttsburgh. Hoerr vividly depicts these rough times and the pointed story of his uncle, the embattled Congressman who he scarcely knew he was young. Ronald Schatz, Wesleyan University" John Hoerr has done a splendid job of recreating the atmosphere of the Red Scare, the damage it inflicted on many people's lives, the ruthless battles that then divided the CIO in Allegheny County, and the profound and enduring impact of that epoch on the labor movement and on the nation's political life. Moreover, his tireless quest for participants' memories and the systematic research in primary sources through which he probed the reliability and significance of those memories provides a mode for other practitioners of oral history to follow. Few other studies of the tumultuous early years of the Cold War provide the reader with such rich insights into the period's political and social changes as those offered by "Harry, Tom and Father Rice." David Montgomery Yale University Farnam Professor Emeritus" "Harry, Tom and Father Rice" skillfully weaves together the stories of three people, each emblematic of important currents in mid-twentieth century America. Moreover, Hoerr does so in a way that sheds light both on the forces that shaped each man, and finally shows us why their entanglement mattered.
