The Truth (with jokes)

By Franken, Al

New York: Dutton, 2005-10-25. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. light edge wear to boards and jacket; Now, this master of political humor strikes again with a powerful and provocative message for all of us. In these pages, Al reveals the alarming story of how: Bush (barely) beat Kerry with his campaign of fear, smear, and queers, and then claimed a nonexistent mandate. Casino Jack Abramoff, the Republicans nearest and dearest friend, made millions of dollars off of the unspeakable misery of the poor and the powerless. And, also, Native Americans. The administration successfully implemented its strategy to destroy America s credibility and goodwill around the world. Complete with new material for this paperback edition, The Truth (with jokes) is more than just entertaining, intelligent, and insightful. It is at once prescient in its analysis of right-wing mendacity and incompetence, and inspiring in its vision of a better tomorrow for all Americans (except Jack Abramoff).

Why We Fight: Moral Clarity and the War on Terrorism

By Bennett, William J

Washington, DC: Regnery Publishing, 2003-02-17. Paperback. Very Good. light edge wear; The events of September 11, 2001 were an unforgettable tragedy, but they also revealed that the spirit of America is strong and undiminished. Still, a small group of influential public intellectuals, writers, members of the media, and academics preached self-doubt about America, wondered whether we brought the attacks on ourselves, and opposed any military action to bring the attackers to justice. In this book William Bennett takes up and refutes the many myths and misconceptions about America's character and role in world affairs that have become fashionable among the nation's elites. He also presents a case for a pre-emptive strike on Saddam Hussein's regime in Iraq. The morning of September 12 dawned with a stunning moral clarity that has guided the actions of many Americans, both her leaders and her citizens. In clear and compelling straightforward language Bennett seeks to preserve that clarity in order to ensure that our national resolve does not falter in these trying times. This paperback edition is updated and includes new chapters reflecting current events. In particular, it includes the debate over the pros and cons of engaging in military action against Iraq.

The Unraveling of America: A History of Liberalism in the 1960s

By Matusow, Allen J.; Morris, Richard B. [Introduction]; Commager, Henry Steele [Introduction];

New York: Harper & Row, 1985-01-19. Trade Paperback. Good. spine creasing, edge wear; In a book that William E. Leuchtenburg, writing in the Atlantic, called “a work of considerable power,” Allen Matusow documents the rise and fall of 1960s liberalism. He offers deft treatments of the major topics—anticommunism, civil rights, Great Society programs, the counterculture—making the most, throughout, of his subject’s tremendous narrative potential. Matusow’s preface to the new edition explains the sometimes critical tone of his study. The Unraveling of America, he says, “was intended as a cautionary tale for liberals in the hope that when their hour struck again, they might perhaps be fortified against past error. Now that they have another chance, a look back at the 1960s might serve them well.”

Beard called "perpetual war for perpetual peace." The Federation of American Scientists has cataloged nearly 200 military incursions since 1945 in which the United States has been the aggressor. In a series of penetrating and alarming essays, whose centerpiece is a commentary on the events of September 11, 2001 (deemed too controversial to publish in this country until now) Gore Vidal challenges the comforting consensus following September 11th and goes back and draws connections to Timothy McVeigh's bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma City. He asks were these simply the acts of "evil-doers?
