Explanation of the Book:

"An impressive combination of diligence and verve, deploying Ackerman’s deep stores of knowledge as a national security journalist to full effect. The result is a narrative of the last 20 years that is upsetting, discerning and brilliantly argued." —The New York Times "One of the most illuminating books to come out of the Trump era." —New York Magazine An examination of the profound impact that the War on Terror had in pushing American politics and society in an authoritarian direction For an entire generation, at home and abroad, the United States has waged an endless conflict known as the War on Terror. In addition to multiple ground wars, it has pioneered drone strikes and industrial-scale digital surveillance, as well as detaining people indefinitely and torturing them. These conflicts have yielded neither peace nor victory, but they have transformed America. What began as the persecution of Muslims and immigrants has become a normalized, paranoid feature of American politics and security, expanding the possibilities for applying similar or worse measures against other targets at home. A politically divided country turned the War on Terror into a cultural and then tribal struggle, first on the ideological fringes and ultimately expanding to conquer the Republican Party, often with the timid acquiescence of the Democratic Party. Today's nativist resurgence walked through a door opened by the 9/11 era. Reign of Terror will show how these policies created a foundation for American authoritarianism and, though it is not a book about Donald Trump, it will provide a critical explanation of his rise to power and the sources of his political strength. It will show that Barack Obama squandered an opportunity to dismantle the War on Terror after killing Osama bin Laden. That mistake turns out to have been portentous. By the end of his tenure, the war metastasized into a broader and bitter culture struggle in search of a demagogue like Trump to lead it. A union of journalism and intellectual history, Reign of Terror will be a pathbreaking and definitive book with the power to transform how America understands its national security policies and their catastrophic impact on its civic life.

Explanation of the Book:

The Revolutionary Reign of Terror is an up-to-date study of the use of violence and the role played by ideology in the building of the new revolutionary state.Rosemary O'Kane demonstrates how the study of revolutionary reigns of terror provides a means to an understanding both of the nature of revolutionary governments and the outcomes of revolutions. By a close comparison of revolutions and the ideologies which prompt them - including the examples of France, Russia, China, Cuba, Mexico, Iran, Ethiopia, Nicaragua, Cambodia, England and America - the special significance of civil war is highlighted and an important distinction made between revolutionary governments brought to power through guerrilla warfare and those faced by civil war after taking power. In conclusion, gaining control of the revolutionary forces of coercion is seen to be pivotal to the establishment of the revolutionary state. The book has special relevance for courses on revolution and political violence in departments of politics, sociology and international relations.

[Siren Menage Everlasting: Paranormal, Werewolf/Shape-shifter, Menage, Romantic Suspense, Reverse Harem, Contemporary, MFMM, HEA] Tamsin “Tams” Clary is kidnapped on her way home after working her shift at the Aztec diner, then beaten and cut. The man whom abducted her, bound her to a tree and started cutting her arms and legs all the while screaming at her to change. She had no idea what the crazy man was talking about and she thinks she’s going to die. Thankfully she loses consciousness before she breathed her last breath. Morris, Jersey and Wallace Malloy, back home after years of fighting for their country, let their wolves run free. The three men find Tamsin, rescue her and realize that she’s their mate. When the brothers find out Tams was tortured by a werewolf hunter, they’re worried she’s going to run when they reveal they’re the very animals the hunter was searching for, let alone what she is to them. However, Tams is no fragile damsel and she can’t ignore the heat flying between her and the men for long. What none of them expect is for danger to infiltrate pack land.

Explanation of the Book:

Horace Rumpole - cigar-smoking, claret-drinking, Wordsworth-spouting defender of some unlikely clients - often speaks of the great murder trial which revealed his talents as an advocate and made his reputation down at the Bailey when he was still a young man. Now, for the first time, the sensational story of the Penge Bungalow Murders case is told in full: how, shortly after the war, Rumpole took on the seemingly impossible task of defending young Simon Jerold, accused of murdering his father and his father's friend with a German officer's gun. And how the inexperienced young brief was left alone to pursue the path of justice, in a case that was to echo through the Bailey for years to come.

Explanation of the Book:

The cost of love and intrigue for real-life Scottish socialite and courtesan, Grace Dalrymple Elliott (1758–1823), was nearly a trip to the guillotine. Mistress to the Duc d'Orleans and in the center of Paris social life, Elliott was arrested and spent 18 months in prison, all the while expecting to lose her head. Despite his support of the revolutionaries and his hatred of his cousin the king, d'Orleans was beheaded. Grace Elliott was devastated. She soon had more to worry about since her own monarchist sympathies got her rounded up with other aristocrats. After her release, she penned this insider's view of the upper crust of French aristocracy during the Reign of Terror that followed the French Revolution. It was first published after her death.
