On a two-mile stretch of land in New York’s East River, a 19th-century horror story was unfolding . . .

Book cover from Hollywood Black (Turner Classic Movies): The Stars, the Films, the Filmmakers by Donald Bogle

Ebook cover from Our Man: Richard Holbrooke and the End of the American Century by George Packer
Book › Kindle ebook
From the award-winning author of The Unwinding--the brilliantly told saga of the ambition, idealism, and hubris of one of the most legendary and complicated figures in recent American history, set amid the rise and fall of U.S. power from Vietnam to Afghanistan

Richard Holbrooke was brilliant, utterly self-absorbed, and possessed of almost inhuman energy and appetites. Admired and detested, he was the force behind the Dayton Accords that ended the Balkan wars, America's greatest diplomatic achievement in the post-Cold War era. His power lay in an utter belief in himself and his...

Book cover from Crucible: Twelve Months that Changed the World Forever by Jonathan Fenby
Book › Hardcover
BOOK OF THE WEEK - The Times
‘The strength of this book lies in the cold realities it delivers. “The thirteen months of 1947-48,” writes Fenby, “provide trenchant examples of how realpolitik can serve a wider purpose if those in power know how to use it.” Crucible captures perfectly the urgency of the time…Read this book for the light it shines on a turbulent time; cherish it for the lessons it provides’ - Gerard DeGroot

One year shaped the world we know today. This is the page-turning story of the pivotal changes which were forged in the space of thirteen months of...
Book cover from The China Mission: George Marshalls Unfinished War, 1945-1947 by Daniel Kurtz-Phelan
Book › Paperback
A spellbinding narrative of the high-stakes mission that changed the course of America, China, and global politics―and a rich portrait of the towering, complex figure who carried it out.

As World War II came to an end, General George Marshall was renowned as the architect of Allied victory. Set to retire, he instead accepted what he thought was a final mission―this time not to win a war, but to stop one. Across the Pacific, conflict between Chinese Nationalists and Communists threatened to suck in the United States and escalate into revolution. His assignment was to broker a peace,...

A “gripping” (USA TODAY) biography, The Moralist is “an essential contribution to presidential history” (Booklist, starred review).

“In graceful prose and deep scholarship, Patricia O’Toole casts new light on the presidency of Woodrow Wilson” (Star Tribune, Minneapolis). The Moralist shows how Wilson was a progressive who enjoyed unprecedented success in leveling the economic playing field, but he...
Book cover from Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of The View by Ramin Setoodeh
Book › Kindle ebook
A page-turning history of The View, one of daytime television’s longest running and most lucrative shows, and the soap opera worthy story of the formidable women behind its success

When Barbara Walters launched The View in 1997, ABC executives repeatedly told her that hosting the show would tarnish her reputation as a serious newswoman. Ten years later, The View was being watched daily in the living rooms of tens of millions of Americans and launched the careers of Meredith Vieira, Star Jones, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, and Joy Behar. But the daily chat­-fest didn’t just comment on...

Ebook cover from Lexington and Concord: The Battle Heard Round the World by George C. Daughan
Book › Paperback
An award-winning historian reinterprets the battle that launched the American Revolution.

George C. Daughan’s magnificently detailed account of the Battle of Lexington and Concord challenges the prevailing narrative of the American War of Independence. It was, Daughan argues, based as much in economic concerns as political ones. When Massachusetts militiamen turned out in overwhelming numbers to fight the British, they believed they were fighting for their farms and livelihoods, as well as for liberty.

Benjamin Franklin was not surprised by this widespread belief. In the years...

“We choose to go to the Moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard; because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one we...
