The Bengahzi scandal may have been covered up by the White House, but the truth is about to come out. The Real Benghazi Story is a ground-breaking investigative work that finally exposes some of the most significant issues related to the murderous September 11, 2012, attack-information with current national security implications. Investigative journalist and New York Times best-selling author Aaron Klein provides the answers many have longed for from the secretive activities transpiring inside the doomed facility to shocking new details about the withholding of critical protection at the U.S. special mission. Learn about what really happened to Ambassador Chris Stevens that fated night, the central role Hillary Clinton actually played in the scandal, and more! Also answered for the first time is why the State Department hired armed members of the al-Qaeda-linked February 17 Martyrs Brigade to protect the facility. New reasons are revealed for not sending air support or Special Forces during the assault, while extensively probing not only jihadist groups but also possible state actors behind the attack. These are just some of the new details to be revealed in this game-changing book.

Nashville, TN Broadman & Holman Publishers 2005 0805440453 / 9780805440454 Trade Paperback Very Good 
As a result of the work of the American Civil Liberties Union and their war on America, we now live in a country where the church has been progressively silenced, parental authority has been undermined, children are less safe, and human life continues to be cheapened-both at birth and death. While the ACLU and its allies in the media have positioned themselves as the great defenders of freedom, they are in reality eliminating the freedoms of millions of Americans. Sadly, most Americans are unaware of the extreme positions of the ACLU. But there is hope. Many Americans are waking up to the dangerous agenda of the ACLU. The ACLUvs. America will clue readers in to the culture wars afoot and will equip them to become effective agents for liberty and freedom against the ACLU's onslaught.

Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation: The End of Slavery in America, Allen C. Guelzo

New York, NY Simon & Schuster 2004 0743262972 / 9780743262972 Trade Paperback Like New 
One of the nation's foremost Lincoln scholars offers an authoritative consideration of the document that represents the most far-reaching accomplishment of our greatest president. No single official paper in American history changed the lives of as many Americans as Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation. But no American document has been held up to greater suspicion. Its bland and lawyerlike language is unfavorably compared to the soaring eloquence of the Gettysburg Address and the Second Inaugural; its effectiveness in freeing the slaves has been dismissed as a legal illusion. And for some African-Americans the Proclamation raises doubts about Lincoln himself. Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation dispels the myths and mistakes surrounding the Emancipation Proclamation and skillfully reconstructs how America's greatest president wrote the greatest American proclamation of freedom.

Harvard and the Unabomber: The Education of an American Terrorist, Alston Chase
27 Alston Chase Harvard and the Unabomber: The Education of an American Terrorist
New York W. W. Norton 2003 0393020029 / 9780393020021 Hard Cover Very Good Good 
Very light wear. No underlining. Very light staining on page edges. Alston Chase presents an intepretation of the infamous Unabomber. He projects Ted Kaczynski's life against the sinister background of the Cold War, when the prospect of nuclear conflict generated a fear of technology and a culture of despair on American college campuses. On these same campuses, federal agencies enlisted psychologists in a covert search for technologies of mind control and encouraged ethically questionable experiments on unwitting students. Chase's account follows Kaczynski from an unhappy adolescence in Illinois to Harvard University, to postgraduate study and to the edge of the wilderness in Montana, where he put his unthinkable plans into action. His reign of terror is rendered in detail and interweaved with this narrative is the chilling counterpoint of Kaczynki's coded journal entries on the efficiacy of materials and techniques - the stark record of a killer's learning curve. A cautionary tale about modern evil, the conditions that provoked Kaczynski's alienation remain in place and may be getting worse as the War on Terrorism replaces the Cold War.

Cedar Keys Hurricane of 1896, The: Disaster at Dawn, Alvin F. Oickle

Charleston, SC The History Press 2009 1596296127 / 9781596296121 Paperback New 
The destruction was beyond belief. Families watched in horror as walls of water swept away homes and businesses, and men held onto saplings for their very lives while the winds howled. Buildings on Atsena Otie were swept away so completely that only cracked stone foundations remained, and the forests of red cedar that gave the islands their name and livelihood were flattened. Resulting in dozens of deaths and millions of dollars in damage, Hurricane Number 4 in 1896 changed the Cedar Keys forever and set the city on a path to the present. Historian Alvin F. Oickle, drawing on firsthand accounts and extensive archival research, tells the story of ordinary Floridians who were faced, like so many before and so many since, with nature's fury.

American Empire: The Realities and Consequences of U.S. Diplomacy, Andrew J. Bacevich

Cambridge, MA Harvard University Press 2002 0674009401 / 9780674009400 Hard Cover As New As New 
In a challenging, provocative book, Andrew Bacevich reconsiders the assumptions and purposes governing the exercise of American global power. Examining the presidencies of George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton--as well as George W. Bush's first year in office--he demolishes the view that the United States has failed to devise a replacement for containment as a basis for foreign policy. He finds instead that successive post-Cold War administrations have adhered to a well-defined "strategy of openness." Motivated by the imperative of economic expansionism, that strategy aims to foster an open and integrated international order, thereby perpetuating the undisputed primacy of the world's sole remaining superpower. Moreover, openness is not a new strategy, but has been an abiding preoccupation of policymakers as far back as Woodrow Wilson. Although based on expectations that eliminating barriers to the movement of trade, capital, and ideas nurtures not only affluence but also democracy, the aggressive pursuit of openness has met considerable resistance. To overcome that resistance, U.S. policymakers have with increasing frequency resorted to force, and military power has emerged as never before as the preferred instrument of American statecraft, resulting in the progressive militarization of U.S. foreign policy. Neither indictment nor celebration, American Empire sees the drive for openness for what it is--a breathtakingly ambitious project aimed at erecting a global imperium. Large questions remain about that project's feasibility and about the human, financial, and moral costs that it will entail. By penetrating the illusions obscuring the reality of U.S. policy, this book marks an essential first step toward finding the answers.

An Artist in Treason: The Extraordinary Double Life of General James Wilkinson (Advance Reading Copy), Andro Linklater
31 Andro Linklater An Artist in Treason: The Extraordinary Double Life of General James Wilkinson (Advance Reading Copy)
New York Walker & Company 2009 0802717209 / 9780802717207 Trade Paperback Very Good 
The first modern biography of the greatest traitor—and one of the most colorful characters—in American history. Patriot, traitor, general, spy: James Wilkinson was a consummate contradiction. Brilliant and precocious, at age twenty he was both the youngest general in the revolutionary Continental Army, and privy to the Conway cabal to oust Washington from command. He was Benedict Arnold’s aide, but the first to reveal Arnold’s infamous treachery. By thirty-eight, he was the senior general in the United States army—and had turned traitor himself. Wilkinson’s audacious career as Agent 13 in the Spanish secret service while in command of American forces is all the more remarkable because it was anything but hidden. Though he betrayed America’s strategic secrets, sought to keep the new country from expanding beyond the Mississippi, and almost delivered Lewis and Clark’s expedition into Spanish hands, four presidents—Washington, Adams, Jefferson, and Madison—turned a blind eye to his treachery. They gambled that Wilkinson—by turns charming and ruthless—would never betray the army itself and use it to overthrow our nascent democracy—a fate every other democracy in the Western hemisphere endured. The crucial test came in 1806, when at the last minute Wilkinson turned the army against Aaron Burr and foiled his conspiracy to break up the U nion. A superb writer and superlative storyteller, Andro Linklater captures with brio Wilkinson’s charismatic ability to live a double life in public view. His saga shows, more clearly than any other, how fragile the young republic was and how its strength grew from the risks its leaders faced and the challenges they had to overcome.

FDR: The First Hundred Days, Anthony J. Badger
35 Anthony J. Badger FDR: The First Hundred Days
New York Hill And Wang 2008 0809044412 / 9780809044412 Trade Paperback Used As New 
The Hundred Days, Franklin Roosevelt’s first fifteen weeks in office, have become the stuff of legend, a mythic yardstick against which every subsequent American president has felt obliged to measure himself. The renowned historian Anthony J. Badger cuts through decades of politicized history to provide a succinct, balanced, and timely reminder that Roosevelt’s accomplishment was above all else an exercise in exceptional political craftsmanship. Declaring that Americans had “nothing to fear but fear itself,” Roosevelt entered the White House in 1933 confronting 25 percent unemployment, bank closings, and a nationwide crisis in confidence.From March 9 to June 16, FDR sent Congress a record number of bills, all of which passed easily. From legalizing the sale of beer to providing mortgage relief to millions of Americans, Roosevelt launched the New Deal that conservatives have been working to roll back ever since. Badger emphasizes Roosevelt’s political gifts even as the president and his brain trust of advisers, guided by principles, largely felt their way toward solutions to the nation’s manifold problems. Reintroducing the contingency that marked those fateful days, Badger humanizes Roosevelt and suggests a far more useful yardstick for future presidents: the politics of the possible under the guidance of principle.

Lessons from Privilege: The American Prep School Tradition, Arthur G. Powell
36 Arthur G. Powell Lessons from Privilege: The American Prep School Tradition
Cambridge, MA Harvard University Press 1996 0674525493 / 9780674525498 Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
Several underlines. A note is written on the first blank page. Around 10,000 tax dollars will put a child through many public schools for a year. About 10,000 private dollars will put him through prep school. Why, then, is one system troubled and the other thriving, one vilified and the other celebrated? In this book, a renowned historian of education searches out the lessons that private schooling might offer public education as cries for school reform grow louder. Lessons from Privilege explores a tradition shaped by experience and common sense, and guided by principles that encourage community, personal relationships, and high academic standards. These "basic" values make a profound difference in a time when popular culture, which mocks intellectual curiosity and celebrates mental passivity, competes so successfully for students' attention. Arthur Powell uses the experience of private education to put the whole schooling enterprise in fresh perspective. He shows how the sense of schools as special communities can help instill passion and commitment in teachers, administrators, and students alike--and how passion and commitment are absolutely necessary for educational success. The power of economic resources, invested fully in schools, also becomes pointedly clear here, as does the value of incentives for teachers and students. Though the concerns this book brings into focus--for decent character and academic literacy--may never be trendy or easily applied, Lessons from Privilege presents sensible, powerful, and profitable ideas for enhancing the humanity and dignity of education in America.

Bloomington, IN authorhouse 2014 1491852240 / 9781491852248 Paperback Very Good 
Clean and sturdy. George Washington, President of a very young United States of America must once again resort to mayhem and destruction to save his administration and avoid a possible reunification with England and its' King. Trade in the Mediterranean Sea area is totally cut off by the Washington Administration's refusal to pay the piratical Islamic Mussellmen tributes. So with the support of his Vice-President John Adams and his Secretary of State Thomas Jefferson, Washington turns to a former Continental Army friend, Benjamin Stoddert. Benjamin Stoddert now operates the largest and most successful commercial shipping lines in America. With Benjamin's management skills and his son Nathaniel's ship handling skills, the Stoddert Shipping Line was able to establish trade in the very lucrative West Indies while fighting off a hoard of pirates. This resulted in a very successful Stoddert Shipping Lines (SSL). It also resulted in a very handsome contribution from Benjamin Stoddert to George Washington and his political ambitions. But a successful effort in the Mediterranean will require all of Benjamin and Nathaniel's skills. Not only will they need to defeat the numerous gunboats and fierce Mussellmen fighters, they will also have to defeat a Mussellman frigate that is reportedly manned by former British Royal Navy seaman. Success will also require a fighting ship that is capable of doing a lot of different things. It will require unique gunnery as well as fighting men. Can the Stodderts pull this off? Can anyone pull this off? There is only one way to find out and the army General in President Washington was not familiar with retreat.

Macon, GA Mercer University Press 2000 0865547076 / 9780865547070 Hard Cover Used Like New New 
Very light discoloration on the top edge of the pages. When three teenage boys stood accused of killing two children in another family in 1905, the three were charged with murder and two faced the hangman's noose. But was it really murder? A judge said no, that the boys had simply obeyed their father's instructions. They were guilty, he said, "only of blind obedience." The trials of Joe Rawlins—a popular, well-to-do South Georgia farmer, a Baptist preacher and father of five—and his sones ended a bitter feud that lasted for more than twenty years. Joe Rawlins and W. L. Carter argued over property rights, stray livestock, fishing rights, even each other's character. Rawlins moved twice and each time he thought he had seen the last of his archenemy. But each time, Carter showed up and bought land bordering Rawlins' farm. Was it a coincidence or was Rawlins being pursued? As the acrimony peaked, Rawlins tried to kill Carter, but failed. Then he hired an assassin and sent his own sons to wipe out the entire Carter family. But the only victims of the attempt were two teenage Carter children. The trials that followed brought a festival atmosphere to Valdosta, Georgia. Excursion trains ferried several thousand people to town for the trial. Joe Rawlins became one of the most quoted condemned men in Georgia history, and the demand for accounts of the trial and subsequent appeals turned the twice-a-week Valdosta Times into a daily newspaper. Blind Obedience tells how the testimony of Alf Moore, an African-American man, was critical to putting a white man on the gallows, possibly the first time a black man's testimony was taken so seriously. The book also documents a series of appeals by Macon attorney John Randolph Cooper that delayed the hanging of Rawlins for sixteen months, a respite that was unheard of at the time. Even today, the Rawlins case is remembered as the most famous murder case in the history of Lowndes County, as well as one of the most notorious in Southern history.

New York Crown Forum 2008 030733807X / 9780307338075 Hard Cover Used As New As New 
Previous owner's name is on the first blank page. The U.S. government is in crisis. With America’s attention fixated on who will step into the Oval Office in 2009, no one has noticed where the real power has shifted—to a vast network of unelected officials whose authority has grown wildly out of control. In his latest blockbuster book, acclaimed defense and national security reporter Bill Gertz exposes these astonishingly powerful leaders and their enablers in the political class—and their devastating impact on America's national security. Gertz shows how entrenched liberal activists have become dominant even under an ostensibly conservative administration. And he names names of those who actively subvert official U.S. policy—including not only liberal Democrats but also a number of so-called Republicans who have joined this insidious “Blame America First” crowd. The Failure Factory reveals: • The shocking, previously untold story of the partisan bureaucrats who completely undercut the U.S. position on Iran’s radical Islamist regime • Barack Obama’s disastrous national security policies—and his stable of advisers who have already put America at risk • The recent showdown in the Pentagon that laid bare the U.S. government’s ongoing failures to tackle the threat of Islamist extremism • Flagrant cases of sabotage by top State Department officials that have emboldened dangerous states like Iran, North Korea, Russia, and Communist China • Stunning new intelligence failures—including one that may have allowed a terrorist group to penetrate the FBI and CIA • How even the Bush White House was overrun with Democrats and liberal Republicans • The legions of “Clinton generals”—top military brass whose careers blossomed during the Clinton administration—who make the United States more vulnerable • How Democrats are exploiting the antiwar movement for political gain, with little regard for the potentially devastating consequences • How the defense secretary’s public defiance of official U.S. policy could have gotten him fired—but instead went unchallenged Based on scores of exclusive interviews and displaying the groundbreaking reporting that has made Bill Gertz’s previous books smash bestsellers, The Failure Factory offers a chilling look at the threats to our national security that exist within our own government.

51 Bill O'Reilly Killing Kennedy: The End of Camelot
New York Henry Holt 0805096663 / 9780805096668 Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
A riveting historical narrative of the shocking events surrounding the assassination of John F. Kennedy, and the follow-up to mega-bestselling author Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln. More than a million readers have thrilled to Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln, the page-turning work of nonfiction about the shocking assassination that changed the course of American history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor; recounts in gripping detail the brutal murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy--and how a sequence of gunshots on a Dallas afternoon not only killed a beloved president but also sent the nation into the cataclysmic division of the Vietnam War and its culture-changing aftermath. In January 1961, as the Cold War escalates, John F. Kennedy struggles to contain the growth of Communism while he learns the hardships, solitude, and temptations of what it means to be president of the United States. Along the way he acquires a number of formidable enemies, among them Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev, Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, and Alan Dulles, director of the Central Intelligence Agency. In addition, powerful elements of organized crime have begun to talk about targeting the president and his brother, Attorney General Robert Kennedy. In the midst of a 1963 campaign trip to Texas, Kennedy is gunned down by an erratic young drifter named Lee Harvey Oswald. The former Marine Corps sharpshooter escapes the scene, only to be caught and shot dead while in police custody. The events leading up to the most notorious crime of the twentieth century are almost as shocking as the assassination itself. Killing Kennedy chronicles both the heroism and deceit of Camelot, bringing history to life in ways that will profoundly move the reader. This may well be the most talked about book of the year.

New York Henry Holt 2015 1627792414 / 9781627792417 Hard Cover New New 
From the bestselling team of Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard comes Killing Reagan, a page-turning epic account of the career of President Ronald Reagan that tells the vivid story of his rise to power -- and the forces of evil that conspired to bring him down. Just two months into his presidency, Ronald Reagan lay near death after a gunman's bullet came within inches of his heart. His recovery was nothing short of remarkable -- or so it seemed. But Reagan was grievously injured, forcing him to encounter a challenge that few men ever face. Could he silently overcome his traumatic experience while at the same time carrying out the duties of the most powerful man in the world? Told in the same riveting fashion as Killing Lincoln, Killing Kennedy, Killing Jesus, and Killing Patton, Killing Reagan reaches back to the golden days of Hollywood, where Reagan found both fame and heartbreak, up through the years in the California governor's mansion, and finally to the White House, where he presided over boom years and the fall of the Iron Curtain. But it was John Hinckley Jr.'s attack on him that precipitated President Reagan's most heroic actions. In Killing Reagan, O'Reilly and Dugard take readers behind the scenes, creating an unforgettable portrait of a great man operating in violent times.

Living in God's Love also features black-and-white photographs from the 2005 New York Crusade, and a moving foreword by his daughter Anne Graham Lotz. Billy Graham's message of the transforming power of Christ's love is one that is needed now more than ever.

Los Angeles, CA WND Box 2009 1935071092 / 9781935071099 Hard Cover New New 
Can you be trusted with free speech? Many politicians in Washington don't think so. They see your right to free speech as a threat to their seat in power. In this hard-hitting book, bestselling author Brad O'Leary exposes the frightening movement afoot that would eviscerate the First Amendment. With his trademark, take-no-prisoners approach, O'Leary shows you how censorship is on the march. From the Orwellian Fairness Doctrine to so-called campaign finance reform, you will learn the real threats, who the enemies of Ben Franklin and Thomas Paine are (including names of senators, congressmen, and Obama administration officials), what they're up to, and how you can fight back and save your freedom. Over two decades ago, Ronald Reagan gave birth to a flourishing, free exchange of ideas when his Federal Communications Commission removed the shackles of the misnamed Fairness Doctrine and restored the First Amendment. However, what was a boon to honest debate has proven to be a nightmare for left-wing politicians. Now these censorship proponents have the upper hand and the First Amendment in their sights.
