<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.

<p>Disinformation is as old as humanity. When Satan told Eve nothing would happen if she bit the apple, that was disinformation. But the rise of social media has made disinformation even more pervasive and pernicious in our current era. In a disturbing turn of events, governments are increasingly using disinformation to create their own false narratives, and democracies are proving not to be very good at fighting it. <br /><br /><br /><br /></p><p>During the final three years of the Obama administration, Richard Stengel, the former editor of <i>Time</i> and an Under Secretary of State, was on the front lines of this new global information war. At the time, he was the single person in government tasked with unpacking, disproving, and combating both ISIS鈥檚 messaging and Russian disinformation. Then, in 2016, as the presidential election unfolded, Stengel watched as Donald Trump used disinformation himself, weaponizing the grievances of Americans who felt left out by modernism. In fact, Stengel quickly came to see how all three players had used the same playbook: ISIS sought to make Islam great again; Putin tried to make Russia great again; and we all know about Trump. <br /><br /><br /><br /></p><p>In a narrative that is by turns dramatic and eye-opening, <i>Information Wars</i> walks readers through of this often frustrating battle. Stengel moves through Russia and Ukraine, Saudi Arabia and Iraq, and introduces characters from Putin to Hillary Clinton, John Kerry and Mohamed bin Salman to show how disinformation is impacting our global society. He illustrates how ISIS terrorized the world using social media, and how the Russians launched a tsunami of disinformation around the annexation of Crimea 鈥?a scheme that became the model for their interference with the 2016 presidential election. An urgent book for our times, <i>Information Wars</i> stresses that we must find a way to combat this ever growing threat to democracy. <br /></p>

<b>#1 NATIONAL BESTSELLER!</b><br /> <br /> Justice Anthony Kennedy slipped out of the Supreme Court building on June 27, 2018, and traveled incognito to the White House to inform President Donald Trump that he was retiring, setting in motion a political process that his successor, Brett Kavanaugh, would denounce three months later as a 鈥渘ational disgrace鈥?and a 鈥渃ircus.鈥?lt;br /> <br /> <i>Justice on Trial</i>, the definitive insider鈥檚 account of Kavanaugh鈥檚 appointment to the Supreme Court, is based on extraordinary access to more than one hundred key figures鈥攊ncluding the president, justices, and senators鈥攊n that ferocious political drama.<br /> <br /> The Trump presidency opened with the appointment of Neil Gorsuch to succeed the late Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court. But the following year, when Trump drew from the same list of candidates for his nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, the justice being replaced was the swing vote on abortion, and all hell broke loose.<br /> <br /> The judicial confirmation process, on the point of breakdown for thirty years, now proved utterly dysfunctional. Unverified accusations of sexual assault became weapons in a ruthless campaign of personal destruction, culminating in the melodramatic hearings in which Kavanaugh鈥檚 impassioned defense resuscitated a nomination that seemed beyond saving.<br /> <br /> The Supreme Court has become the arbiter of our nation鈥檚 most vexing and divisive disputes. With the stakes of each vacancy incalculably high, the incentive to destroy a nominee is nearly irresistible. The next time a nomination promises to change the balance of the Court, Hemingway and聽Severino warn, the confirmation fight will be even uglier than Kavanaugh鈥檚.<br /> <br /> A good person might accept that nomination in the na茂ve belief that what happened to Kavanaugh won鈥檛 happen to him because he is a good person. But it can happen, it does happen, and it just happened. The question is whether America will let it happen again.

<b>From the author of聽<i>On Tyranny</i>聽comes a stunning new chronicle of the rise of authoritarianism from Russia to Europe and America.</b><br /><br /><b>鈥淎 brilliant analysis of our time.鈥濃€擪arl Ove Knausgaard, <i>The New Yorker</i></b><br /><br />With the end of the Cold War, the victory of liberal democracy seemed final. Observers declared the end of history, confident in a peaceful, globalized future. This faith was misplaced. Authoritarianism returned to Russia, as Putin found fascist ideas that could be used to justify rule by the wealthy. In the 2010s, it has spread from east to west, aided by Russian warfare in Ukraine and cyberwar in Europe and the United States.聽 <br /><br />Russia found allies among nationalists, oligarchs, and radicals everywhere, and its drive to dissolve Western institutions, states, and values found resonance within the West itself.聽 The rise of populism, the British vote against the EU, and the election of Donald Trump were all Russian goals, but their achievement reveals the vulnerability of Western societies.<br /><br />In this forceful and unsparing work of contemporary history, based on vast research as well as personal reporting, Snyder goes beyond the headlines to expose the true nature of the threat to democracy and law. To understand the challenge is to see, and perhaps renew, the fundamental political virtues offered by tradition and demanded by the future. By revealing the stark choices before us--between equality or oligarchy, individuality or totality, truth and falsehood--Snyder restores our understanding of the basis of our way of life, offering a way forward in a time of terrible uncertainty.

<p><strong>From the Pulitzer Prize鈥搘inning scholar, a timely history of the constitutional changes that built equality into the nation鈥檚 foundation and how those guarantees have been shaken over time.</strong></p><br /><p>The Declaration of Independence announced equality as an American ideal, but it took the Civil War and the subsequent adoption of three constitutional amendments to establish that ideal as American law. The Reconstruction amendments abolished slavery, guaranteed all persons due process and equal protection of the law, and equipped black men with the right to vote. They established the principle of birthright citizenship and guaranteed the privileges and immunities of all citizens. The federal government, not the states, was charged with enforcement, reversing the priority of the original Constitution and the Bill of Rights. In grafting the principle of equality onto the Constitution, these revolutionary changes marked the second founding of the United States.</p><br /><p>Eric Foner鈥檚 compact, insightful history traces the arc of these pivotal amendments from their dramatic origins in pre鈥揅ivil War mass meetings of African-American 鈥渃olored citizens鈥?and in Republican party politics to their virtual nullification in the late nineteenth century. A series of momentous decisions by the Supreme Court narrowed the rights guaranteed in the amendments, while the states actively undermined them. The Jim Crow system was the result. Again today there are serious political challenges to birthright citizenship, voting rights, due process, and equal protection of the law. Like all great works of history, this one informs our understanding of the present as well as the past: knowledge and vigilance are always necessary to secure our basic rights.</p>

<b>The incredible true story of the decade-long quest to bring down Paul Le Roux鈥攖he creator of a frighteningly powerful Internet-enabled cartel who merged the ruthlessness of a drug lord with the technological savvy of a Silicon Valley entrepreneur.</b><br /><br /><b><b>鈥淎 tour de force of shoe-leather reporting鈥攗ndertaken, amid threats and menacing, at considerable personal risk.鈥濃€?lt;i>Los Angeles Times</i></b><br /><br /></b>It all started as an online prescription drug network, supplying hundreds of millions of dollars鈥?worth of painkillers to American customers. It would not stop there. Before long, the business had turned into a sprawling multinational conglomerate engaged in almost every conceivable aspect of criminal mayhem. Yachts carrying $100 million in cocaine. Safe houses in Hong Kong filled with gold bars. Shipments of methamphetamine from North Korea. Weapons deals with Iran. Mercenary armies in Somalia. Teams of hit men in the Philippines. Encryption programs so advanced that the government could not break them.<br /><br /> The man behind it all, pulling the strings from a laptop in Manila, was Paul Calder Le Roux鈥攁 reclusive programmer turned criminal genius who could only exist in the networked world of the twenty-first century, and the kind of self-made crime boss that American law enforcement had never imagined.<br /><br /> For half a decade, DEA agents played a global game of cat-and-mouse with Le Roux as he left terror and chaos in his wake. Each time they came close, he would slip away. It would take relentless investigative work, and a shocking betrayal from within his organization, to catch him. And when he was finally caught, the story turned again, as Le Roux struck a deal to bring down his own organization and the people he had once employed.<br /><br /> Award-winning investigative journalist Evan Ratliff spent four years piecing together this intricate puzzle, chasing Le Roux鈥檚 empire and his shadowy henchmen around the world, conducting hundreds of interviews and uncovering thousands of documents. The result is a riveting, unprecedented account of a crime boss built by and for the digital age.<br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>The Mastermind<br /></i></b><br />鈥?lt;i>The Mastermind</i> is true crime at its most stark and vivid depiction.
