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.

Lincoln Unbound – How an Ambitious Young Railsplitter Saved the American Dream—And How We Can Do It Again – Just 99 cents 0 comments

Revered across the political spectrum, President Lincoln believed in a small but active government in a nation defined by aspiration. He embraced the market and the amazing transportation and communications revolutions beginning to take hold. He helped give birth to the modern industrial economy.
Abraham Lincoln’s vision of an upwardly mobile society that rewards and supports individual striving was wondrously realized. Now, it is under threat. To meet these challenges, conservative columnist Rich Lowry draws us back to the lessons of Lincoln. It is imperative, he argues, to preserve a fluid economy that makes it possible for individuals to thrive and live the American dream.

Twilight of the Elites: America After Meritocracy – $1.99 0 comments

A powerful and original argument that traces the roots of our present crisis of authority to an unlikely source: the meritocracy.
Mixing deft political analysis, timely social commentary, and deep historical understanding, Twilight of the Elites describes how the society we have come to inhabit – utterly forgiving at the top and relentlessly punitive at the bottom – produces leaders who are out of touch with the people they have been trusted to govern. Hayes argues that the public’s failure to trust the federal government, corporate America, and the media has led to a crisis of authority that threatens to engulf not just our politics but our day-to-day lives.
Upending well-worn ideological and partisan categories, Hayes entirely reorients our perspective on our times. Twilight of the Elites is the defining work of social criticism for the post-bailout age. Buy this book today for only $1.99.

A Prayer for the City – The true story of an American city on its knees – $1.99 0 comments

A Prayer for the City is acclaimed journalist Buzz Bissinger’s true epic of Philadelphia mayor Ed Rendell, an utterly unique, unorthodox, and idiosyncratic leader willing to go to any length for the sake of his city: take unions head on, personally lobby President Clinton to save 10,000 defense jobs, or wrestle Smiley the Pig on Hot Dog Day—all the while bearing in mind the eternal fickleness of constituents whose favor may hinge on a missed garbage pick-up or an overzealous meter maid.
A Prayer for the City describes the rare combination of political courage and optimism that may be the only hope for America’s urban centers. Buy this book for $1.99 today.

God and Government by Chuck Colson – Just 99 cents 0 comments
