This Town: Two Parties and a Funeral-Plus, Plenty of Valet Parking!-in America’s Gilded Capital – $1.99 0 comments

Washington D.C. might be loathed from every corner of the nation, yet these are fun and busy days at this nexus of big politics, big money, big media, and big vanity.
There are no Democrats and Republicans anymore in the nation’s capital, just millionaires. Through the eyes of Leibovich we discover how the funeral for a beloved newsman becomes the social event of the year; how political reporters are fetishized for their ability to get their names into the predawn e-mail sent out by the city’s most powerful and puzzled-over journalist; how a disgraced Hill aide can overcome ignominy and maybe emerge with a more potent “brand” than many elected members of Congress.
And how an administration bent on “changing Washington” can be sucked into the ways of This Town with the same ease with which Tea Party insurgents can, once elected, settle into it like a warm bath.
Outrageous, fascinating, and very necessary, This Town is a must-read whether you’re inside the highway which encircles DC – or just trying to get there. Buy it today for only $1.99.

Fiasco: The American Military Adventure in Iraq, 2003 to 2005 – $1.99 0 comments

The definitive account of the American military’s tragic experience in Iraq.
Fiasco is a masterful reckoning with the planning and execution of the American military invasion and occupation of Iraq through mid-2006, now with a postscript on recent developments. Ricks draws on the exclusive cooperation of an extraordinary number of American personnel, including more than one hundred senior officers, and access to more than 30,000 pages of official documents, many of them never before made public.
Tragically, it is an undeniable account—explosive, shocking, and authoritative—of unsurpassed tactical success combined with unsurpassed strategic failure that indicts some of America’s most powerful and honored civilian and military leaders. Buy this book for $1.99 today.
