The Queen

The Epic Ambition of Hillary and the Coming of a Second "Clinton Era"

By Hugh Hewitt

  • Paperback
  • £12.99

Not since the publication of The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli 500 years ago has a member of the political opposition written so candidly about the strengths and weaknesses of the strongest member of his opposing political party.

In THE QUEEN, Hugh Hewitt channels his inner James Carville to fully outline - and expose - the massive strengths and enormous weaknesses of Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Many reporters have tried to detail Hillary's achievements, predict her actions, or psychoanalyse her contradictions. Hewitt simply takes her as she is - the most ambitious woman in American history - and lays out what is ahead for her second campaign for the presidency, and predicts the way she would deal with the world should she triumph. If by reading this Hewitt gives pause to potential Clinton voters, he will be a happy man. If Hillary triumphs, consider the book the timeliest warning ever delivered.

Dying of Whiteness

Jonathan M. Metzl
Authors:
Jonathan M. Metzl

Dying of Whiteness is What's the Matter with Kansas but with an emphasis on public health. In the backlash conservatism of the Trump era, physician Jonathan M. Metzl argues that lower- and middle-class white Americans who vote for policies that promise to protect their embattled "way of life," in fact damage their own health and well-being. Through focus groups and interviews with ordinary Americans and statistical analysis of population health and life expectancy, Metzl shows how anti-government and pro-gun policies win support due to white racial resentment, and how such policies raise mortality risks for white Americans and for our society as a whole. Metzl's quest to understand the health implications of what he calls "backlash governance" focuses centrally on three hot-button issues: the spread of pro-gun laws supported by the NRA, efforts to oppose and repeal of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and sweeping cuts to taxes and public spending. Raised in Missouri and Kansas and a long-time resident of Tennessee, he focuses on these three states, each of them once known for bipartisan cooperation but more recently dominated by conservative ideologues. In Missouri, a state that dramatically relaxed once-strict handgun laws, he speaks with families of gun suicide victims and documents soaring rates of death and injury by gun. In Tennessee, once a pioneer in healthcare provision, he examines the ramifications of the state's intense resistance to the ACA's Medicare expansion, embodied by one man who refused to sign up for "Obamacare" even as he was dying of Hepatitis C. And in Kansas, he shows how enormous income tax cuts led to extreme austerity in the state's public schools, increasing drop-out rates and reducing life expectancy among black and white alike.With President Trump's election and other Republican victories in 2016, these state-level controversies have become national flashpoints-and, Metzl argues, the health risks that accompany a politics warped by racial resentment have only grown. To move forward, we must understand how systems of racial hierarchy hurt us all, and that policies promising to shore up the position of whites at the expense of minorities will only hasten our demise.

Empty Planet

Darrell Bricker, John Ibbitson
Authors:
Darrell Bricker, John Ibbitson

'Riveting and vitally important' - Steven Pinker, Johnstone Professor of Psychology, Harvard University, and author of The Better Angels of Our Nature and Enlightenment NowA radical, provocative argument that the global population will soon begin to decline, dramatically reshaping the social, political and economic landscape.For half a century, statisticians, pundits and politicians have warned that a burgeoning planetary population will soon overwhelm the earth's resources. But a growing number of experts are sounding a different kind of alarm. Rather than growing exponentially, they argue, the global population is headed for a steep decline. Throughout history, depopulation was the product of catastrophe: ice ages, plagues, the collapse of civilizations. This time, however, we're thinning ourselves deliberately, by choosing to have fewer babies than we need to replace ourselves. In much of the developed and developing world, that decline is already underway, as urbanisation, women's empowerment, and waning religiosity lead to smaller and smaller families. In Empty Planet, Ibbitson and Bricker travel from South Florida to Sao Paulo, Seoul to Nairobi, Brussels to Delhi to Beijing, drawing on a wealth of research and firsthand reporting to illustrate the dramatic consequences of this population decline - and to show us why the rest of the developing world will soon join in. They find that a smaller global population will bring with it a number of benefits: fewer workers will command higher wages; good jobs will prompt innovation; the environment will improve; the risk of famine will wane; and falling birthrates in the developing world will bring greater affluence and autonomy for women. But enormous disruption lies ahead, too. We can already see the effects in Europe and parts of Asia, as aging populations and worker shortages weaken the economy and impose crippling demands on healthcare and vital social services. There may be earth-shaking implications on a geopolitical scale as well. Empty Planet is a hugely important book for our times. Captivating and persuasive, it is a story about urbanisation, access to education and the empowerment of women to choose their own destinies. It is about the secularisation of societies and the vital role that immigration has to play in our futures.Rigorously researched and deeply compelling, Empty Planet offers a vision of a future that we can no longer prevent - but that we can shape, if we choose to.

How to Get Rid of a President

David Priess
Authors:
David Priess

To limit executive power, the Founding Fathers created fixed presidential terms of four years, giving voters regular opportunities to remove their leaders. Americans also discovered more dramatic paths for disempowering--or coming razor-close to removing--chief executives: undermining the president's authority, a preemptive strike to derail a presidential candidacy, assassination, impeachment, resignation, and declaration of inability. Although the United States has gone decades without assassination or resignation, the most dramatic forms of presidential removal, getting rid of a president or a potential president is a political reality--just ask not president Hillary Clinton.How To Get Rid of a President presents the dark side of the nation's history, from the Constitutional Convention through the aftermath of the shocking 2016 election, a stew of election dramas, national tragedies, and presidential exits mixed with party intrigue, political betrayal, and backroom scheming. It is a briskly paced, darkly humorous voyage through historical events relevant to today's headlines, highlighting the many ways that presidents have been undermined and nearly kicked out, how each method of removal offers opportunities and dangers for the republic, and the thorny ethical issues that surround the choice to resist, disobey, or eject a president.

Dawn of the Code War

Authors:
John P. Carlin, Garret M. Graff

Over the past decade, there have been a series of internet-linked attacks on American interests, including North Korea's retaliatory hack of Sony Pictures, China's large-scale industrial espionage, Russia's 2016 propaganda campaign, and quite a lot more. The cyber war is upon us.Former Assistant Attorney General John Carlin has been on the frontlines of America's ongoing cyber war with its enemies. In this dramatic book, he tells the story of his years-long secret battle to keep America safe, and warns us of the perils that await us as we embrace the latest digital novelties -- smart appliances, artificial intelligence, self-driving cars -- with little regard for how our enemies might compromise them. The potential targets for our enemies are multiplying: our electrical grid, our companies, our information sources, our satellites. As each sector of the economy goes digital, a new vulnerability is exposed.The Internet of Broken Things is not merely a cautionary tale, though. It makes the urgent case that we need to start innovating more responsibly. As a fleet of web-connected cars and pacemakers rolls off the assembly lines, the potential for danger is overwhelming. We must see and correct these flaws before our enemies exploit them.

Stop Mass Hysteria

Michael Savage
Authors:
Michael Savage

In his new book, MASS HYSTERIA, #1 NYT bestselling author Michael Savage calls out the mass hysteria mongers and their methods, and shows Americans that we must look to history to understand the present, and avoid repeating the mistakes of the past.The defeat of "shoo-in" Hillary Clinton and the entire Democrat state has caused fractures in the Centrist, Left, Progressive, and Socialist factions of the party that have spread to the larger population. They are so hostile, so full of violent rage, that they cannot reason or converse. It is a phenomenon we have seen before in America. It is called mass hysteria. Thanks to social media and the corrupt mainstream media, the reach is so large it is an unprecedented "mass hysteria bubble." Michael Savage will discuss the cycles of mass hysteria that have roused the public for and against blocs of people or enterprises, beginning with the revolution of 1776, the Civil War and Reconstruction, the Red Scare from the 30s - 50s, the Silent Majority vs. the Hippies, the anti-nuclear movement of the 1970s-1980s which probably set energy independence back fifty years, and more. All of those different movements have one thing in common: hate was hatched. It was nurtured from dislike to vocal mass hysteria. Savage says that to slow or even break this insidious cycle, we must delve into the unspoken reality that there are always puppet masters behind these outcries, men and women who convince the gullible masses that indoctrination is truth. While exposing these forces in the past Savage will, more importantly, unmask the individuals in the present who are generating this mass hysteria...and why.

The Capitalist Comeback

Andrew F. Puzder
Authors:
Andrew F. Puzder

CAPITALISM UNDER ATTACK explains the single biggest threat to the free enterprise system: the demonization of the profit motive. It demonstrates the urgent need to educate all Americans - but especially the next generation - about profit's vital role in our nation. CAPITALISM UNDER ATTACK traces how the path of human economic history has led to an era where making money, owning property, and trying to maximize profits are seen by a large segment of the world population as selfish and even anti-societal aims. Ironically, data shows these anti-capitalist sentiments are most prevalent - and spreading at troubling rates - in the societies that have benefited most from capitalism over the last century. Places like the United States and Western Europe are today proving remarkably susceptible to neo-Marxist and redistributive socialist ideology - among academics in America's premiere institutions, among historians, and among politicians who continually rail against corporate profits or the evil "One Percent." ANDY PUZDER reminds readers that the pursuit of profit was a lynchpin to America's success as a nation - and led to the creation of a middle class of shopkeepers, merchants, and entrepreneurs who could finally earn a living, succeed and fail, based on their own abilities. Puzder briefly traces the history of profit from ancient times, to its golden age after liberal philosophers like John Locke and Adam Smith defended the idea of individual rights and private property. He explains how their ideas reached their purest form in practice when they were given new life as the basis for the creation of the new United States of America. The world, led by that grand experiment in profit - the U.S. - has decided to reject and shame the idea of making money, and the consequences this shift could have in the future.

The Feminist Revolution

Bonnie J. Morris, D. M. Withers
Authors:
Bonnie J. Morris, D. M. Withers

Oprah's book club has declared The Feminist Revolution a must-read for Women's History Month.The Feminist Revolution offers an overview of women's struggle for equal rights in the late twentieth century. Beginning with the auspicious founding of the National Organization for Women in 1966, at a time when women across the world were mobilizing individually and collectively in the fight to assert their independence and establish their rights in society, the book traces a path through political campaigns, protests, the formation of women's publishing houses and groundbreaking magazines, and other events that shaped women's history. It examines women's determination to free themselves from definition by male culture, wanting not only to 'take back the night' but also to reclaim their bodies, their minds, and their cultural identity. It demonstrates as well that the feminist revolution was enacted by women from all backgrounds, of every color, and of all ages and that it took place in the home, in workplaces, and on the streets of every major town and city. This sweeping overview of the key decades in the feminist revolution also brings together for the first time many of these women's own unpublished stories, which together offer tribute to the daring, humor, and creative spirit of its participants.

Hacks

Donna Brazile
Authors:
Donna Brazile

In the fallout of the Russian hacking of the Democratic National Committee, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz was made to step down. To right the ship, the DNC turned to a legendary democratic hand: Donna Brazile. As chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee during the 2016 campaign, Brazile had a front-row seat to the wildest, craziest, and most disturbing presidential race in American history. She was called to take over a party riven by scandal and allegations of corruption, and then thrust into the international spotlight after the DNC email system was hacked by the Russians, a brazen and wholly unprecedented attempt by a foreign power to influence a presidential election. Seeking to balance the interest of a bitterly divided party while waging war against the Trump Republicans, Brazile was often a lonely warrior. Equal parts campaign thriller, political memoir, and vision for the future of the Democratic Party, Brazile's book will be the first to take readers inside the inner workings 2016 election from someone who saw calamity befall her party - and the nation - first hand. Among the book's many revelations:· THE REPLACEMENT. After Hillary Clinton shocking fainting episode at the 9/11 commemoration and her subsequent effort to downplay serious health issues, Brazile came up with a plan to replace her with a "dream team" ticket.· BERNIE PARANOIA WAS RIGHT. Bernie and his team were correct in their longstanding criticism of the DNC under Debbie Wasserman Schultz: the Clinton team had stacked the deck against them by staffing the DNC with Clinton loyalists.· DRAMA OBAMA. Brazile was constantly stunned by the President's and his team's unwillingness to go all-in for HRC. · CNN'S POLITICS-AS-ENTERTAINMENT WORLDVIEW. Inside the real story of Brazile's departure from CNN and Jeff Zucker's attempt to get her to lie in order to keep her job. INSIDE THE CAMPAIGN DEBACLE: Clinton had the votes, but not the strategy to win. Brazile will explain how we had a candidate with a ghost haunting her that could not be shaken: her history as a presidential loser.
