<b>"Important and stunning. This is must-read material if you want to understand what the Trump administration is still up to right now." --Lawrence O'Donnell<br /><br />From bestselling author James Stewart, the definitive story of the war between President Trump and America's principal law enforcement agencies, answering the questions that the Mueller report couldn't聽<i>鈥撀?lt;/i>or wouldn't</b><br /><br />When Trump fired James Comey, he triggered the appointment of Robert Mueller as an independent special counsel and caused the FBI to open a formal investigation into the President himself. This set in motion a chain of events, which would join in unprecedented and potentially mortal combat two vital institutions of American democracy: the Presidency and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the investigative arm of the Department of Justice.<br /><br />The stakes could not be higher: the rule of law itself, the foundation of the American constitution and Anglo-American democracy for centuries. In this epic battle, there is no room for compromise. There can only be winners and losers, to invoke a distinctly Trumpian view of the world. But there is plenty of room for collateral damage. The reputations of both sides have already been harmed, perhaps irrevocably, and at great cost to American democracy and its institutions.<br /><br />Drawing on scores of interviews with key FBI, Justice Department, and White House officials, and voluminous transcripts, notes, and internal reports, Stewart tells the dramatic saga of the FBI and its simultaneous investigations of both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump <i>鈥撀?lt;/i>the first time in American history the FBI has been thrust into the middle of both parties' campaigns for the Presidency. Packed with drama and a cast of fascinating characters, <i>Deep State</i> goes where others cannot, revealing the truth of the grand and world-changing struggle that has defined the Trump presidency.

The result? The misguided multimillion Mueller investigation that tore the nation apart, tried to destabilize the presidency and led, as the world now knows, to nowhere!

<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER 鈥?The epic true crime story of the most successful bootlegger in American history and the murder that shocked the nation, from the <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>Sin in the Second City</i> and <i>Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy</i></b><br /><br /><b>鈥淕atsby-era noir at its best.鈥濃€擡rik Larson</b><br /><br />In the early days of Prohibition, long before Al Capone became a household name, a German immigrant named George Remus quits practicing law and starts trafficking whiskey. Within two years he's a multi-millionaire. The press calls him "King of the Bootleggers," writing breathless stories about the Gatsby-esque events he and his glamorous second wife, Imogene, host at their Cincinnati mansion, with party favors ranging from diamond jewelry for the men to brand-new cars for the women. By the summer of 1921, Remus owns 35 percent of all the liquor in the United States. <br /><br />Pioneering prosecutor Mabel Walker Willebrandt is determined to bring him down. Willebrandt's bosses at the Justice Department hired her right out of law school, assuming she'd pose no real threat to the cozy relationship they maintain with Remus. Eager to prove them wrong, she dispatches her best investigator, Franklin Dodge, to look into his empire. It's a decision with deadly consequences. With the fledgling FBI on the case, Remus is quickly imprisoned for violating the Volstead Act. Her husband behind bars, Imogene begins an affair with Dodge. Together, they plot to ruin Remus, sparking a bitter feud that soon reaches the highest levels of government--and that can only end in murder. <br /><br />Combining deep historical research with novelistic flair, <i>The Ghosts of Eden Park</i> is the unforgettable, stranger-than-fiction story of a rags-to-riches entrepreneur and a long-forgotten heroine, of the excesses and absurdities of the Jazz Age, and of the infinite human capacity to deceive.<br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>The Ghosts of Eden Park</i></b><br /><br />鈥淎n exhaustively researched, hugely entertaining work of popular history that . . . exhumes a colorful crew of once-celebrated characters and restores them to full-blooded life. . . .

Once in a great while a book comes along that changes the way we see the world and helps to fuel a nationwide social movement. <i>The New Jim Crow</i> is such a book. Praised by Harvard Law professor Lani Guinier as "brave and bold," this book directly challenges the notion that the election of Barack Obama signals a new era of colorblindness. With dazzling candor, legal scholar Michelle Alexander argues that "we have not ended racial caste in America; we have merely redesigned it." By targeting black men through the War on Drugs and decimating communities of color, the U.S. criminal justice system functions as a contemporary system of racial control鈥攔elegating millions to a permanent second-class status鈥攅ven as it formally adheres to the principle of colorblindness. In the words of Benjamin Todd Jealous, president and CEO of the NAACP, this book is a "call to action."<br /><br />Called "stunning" by Pulitzer Prize鈥搘inning historian David Levering Lewis, "invaluable" by the <i>Daily Kos</i>, "explosive" by <i>Kirkus</i>, and "profoundly necessary" by the <i>Miami Herald</i>, this updated and revised paperback edition of <i>The New Jim Crow</i>, now with a foreword by Cornel West, is a must-read for all people of conscience.
