American Industry in the War: A Report of the War Industries Board (March 1921). Bernard M. Baruch, Richard H. Hippelheuser.
New York: Prentice-Hall, Inc. 1941. Reprint edition. Hardcover. 498 pages. Fold-out chart. Appendices. Index. Some foxing on fore-edge. There is a rough spot inside rear board and slight discoloration insides the boards. Bernard Mannes Baruch (August 19, 1870 – June 20, 1965) was an American financier, stock investor, philanthropist, statesman, and political consultant. After his success in business, he devoted his time toward advising U.S. Presidents Woodrow Wilson and Franklin D. Roosevelt on economic matters. Baruch became a broker and then a partner in A.A. Housman & Company. With his earnings and commissions, he bought a seat on the New York Stock Exchange for $19,000 ($552,960 in 2016 dollars). There he amassed a fortune before the age of 30 by profiting from speculation in the sugar market; at that time plantations were booming in Hawaii. By 1903 Baruch had his own brokerage firm and gained the reputation of "The Lone Wolf of Wall Street" because of his refusal to join any financial house. By 1910, he had become one of Wall Street's best-known financiers. In 1916, Baruch left Wall Street to advise President Woodrow Wilson on national defense and terms of peace. He served on the Advisory Commission to the Council of National Defense and, in 1918, became the chairman of the new War Industries Board. With his leadership, this body successfully managed the US's economic mobilization during World War I. In 1919, Wilson asked Baruch to serve as a staff member at the Paris Peace Conference.

Blacks and the Military. Martin Binkin, Mark J. Eitelberg, Alvin J. Schexnider, Marvin M. Smith.
Washington, DC: The Brookings Institution, 1982. First Edition. First Printing. 190, footnotes, tables, index, usual library markings, residue of DJ having been pasted to the boards, edges blacked Studies in Defense Policy. For much of the nation's history, the participation of blacks in the armed forces was approximately in line with their proportion in the total population. This changed during the 1970s. By 1980 one of every three Army GIs and one of every five marines were black. Many Americans look with approval on the growth of black participation in military service, since it often affords young blacks educational, social, and financial opportunities that constitute a bridge to a better life not otherwise available to them. But for other Americans, the opportunities are outweighed by the disproportionate imposition of the burden of defense on a segment of the population. A socially unrepresentativ e force, it is argued, may lack the cohesion considered vital to combat effectiveness. Others fear that such a force would be unreliable if it were deployed in situations that would test the alliance of its minority members. The authors of this book examine evidence on both sides of the issue.
