Peter Beinart has written a vivid, empathetic, and convincing history of the men and ideas that have shaped the ambitions of American foreign policy during the last century - a story in which human fallibility and idealism flow together. The story continues, of course, and so his book is not only timely; it is indispensable.” (Steve Coll, author of Ghost Wars) Peter Beinart's provocative account of hubris in the American century describes Washington on the eve of three wars: World War I, Vietnam, and Iraq - three moments when American leaders decided they could remake the world in their image. Each time, leading intellectuals declared that the spread of democracy was inevitable. Each time, a president held the nation in the palm of his hand. And each time, a war conceived in arrogance brought tragedy. But each catastrophe also imparted wisdom to a new generation of thinkers. These leaders learned to reconcile the American belief that anything is possible with the realities of a world that will never fully conform to this country's will - and in their struggles lie the seeds of American renewal today. 9780062016867 N N ©2010 Peter Beinart;(P)2010 HarperCollins Publishers http://www.audible.de/pd/B004V0BMAW?source_code=PNHFA145032019009G&ipRedirectOverride=true http://www.audible.de/pd/B004V0BMAW?source_code=PNHFA145032019009G&ipRedirectOverride=true Missing: The Secrets of Crittenden County, Book 1 (Unabridged) 24.95 AVAILABLE Missing: The Secrets of Crittenden County, Book 1 (Unabridged) Missing (Unabridged) Shelley Shepard Gray Can two young people survive the suspicions of their friends and neighbors when tragedy strikes a close-knit Amish community....

Perry Borntrager had been missing for months from the quiet Amish community of Crittenden, Kentucky, when his body is discovered at the bottom of an abandoned well. The first death from mysterious circumstances in more than two decades brings the scrutiny of the outside world: A police detective arrives to help the local sheriff with the investigation. His questioning begins with Lydia Plank, Perry's former girlfriend, and Perry's best friend, the Englischer Walker Anderson. Lydia and Walker know they didn't have anything to do with Perry's death, but they both hold secrets about his final days. Do they dare open up about the kind of man Perry had become? In the oppressive shadow of these dark times, they discover strength in a most unlikely companionship: one that offers solace, understanding, and the promise of something more. 9780062115553 N N ©2012 Shelley Shepard Gray;(P)2012 HarperCollins Publishers http://www.audible.de/pd/B007JN16BS?source_code=PNHFA145032019009G&ipRedirectOverride=true http://www.audible.de/pd/B007JN16BS?source_code=PNHFA145032019009G&ipRedirectOverride=true Carnivore: A Memoir by One of the Deadliest American Soldiers of All Time (Unabridged) 29.95 AVAILABLE Carnivore: A Memoir by One of the Deadliest American Soldiers of All Time (Unabridged) Carnivore (Unabridged) Dillard Johnson, James Tarr Funny and exciting,Carnivore offers fresh insight into the mind and heart of a warrior and offers a look at the lives of troops on the ground not seen before....

Awarded a Silver Star with Valor for his heroic efforts to save the crew of a crippled Bradley, he was personally responsible for 2,000 confirmed enemy kills. But surviving the enemy was only the beginning. Johnson would use the intensity, focus, and humor that kept him alive on the battlefield to fight stage three Hodgkin's Lymphoma - which developed from the radiation poisoning he suffered discharging 5,000 uranium rounds in combat - despite learning he had a 1 in 4 chance of survival. A man determined not to die, Johnson made a miraculous recovery - and then returned to Iraq for a second combat tour as an Army sniper. Performing overwatch protection for his fellow troops, he is officially credited with 121 snipers kills, believed to be the most ever by a U.S. Army sniper and second only (across all branches) to Chris Kyle. After finishing his 21-year career in the military in 2006, Johnson became a private contractor in Iraq and Afghanistan. Now, in Carnivore, this decorated hero tells his amazing story. Funny and exciting, Carnivore offers fresh insight into the mind and heart of a warrior and offers a look at the lives of troops on the ground not seen before. It is the story of a poor kid from Kentucky who has beaten extraordinary odds and a loving husband and a devoted father of four children, including a son with cerebral palsy. It is a story only one man can tell. 9780062289896 N N ©2013 Dillard Johnson and James Tarr;(P)2013 HarperCollinsPublishers http://www.audible.de/pd/B00DDVP5MQ?source_code=PNHFA145032019009G&ipRedirectOverride=true http://www.audible.de/pd/B00DDVP5MQ?source_code=PNHFA145032019009G&ipRedirectOverride=true Circle of Friends: The Massive Federal Crackdown on Inside Trading - and Why the Markets Always Work Against the Little Guy (Unabridged) 31.95 AVAILABLE Circle of Friends: The Massive Federal Crackdown on Inside Trading - and Why the Markets Always Work Against the Little Guy (Unabridged) Circle of Friends (Unabridged) Charles Gasparino The best-selling author of The Sellout tells the explosive story of the government's recent crackdown on insider-trading networks....

In Circle of Friends, award-winning journalist Charles Gasparino - one of Wall Street's most knowledgeable observers - follows government investigators and prosecutors as they pursue one of the most aggressive and broad-reaching series of insider-trading cases in the nation's history. A richly textured page-turner of investigative journalism based on extensive reporting, Circle of Friends chronicles the massive federal crackdown that has already put some of the biggest names on Wall Street behind bars, including Raj Rajaratnam, founder of the Galleon Group, and Rajat Gupta, a former CEO of consulting giant McKinsey & Co. Other similarly sized targets are still waiting nervously, including the biggest one of them all - financial impresario Steve Cohen of SAC Capital, the giant hedge fund that has confounded regulators for years by cranking out a steady stream of market-busting returns. Gasparino goes behind the headlines to reveal how the government makes its case, using every tool at its disposal - and at great expense to taxpayers - to supposedly make the investing world safer for average Americans. Gasparino asks why federal officials are so eager to prosecute these cases: What is the real damage to individuals? Do average investors really care? He explores why insider trading is all the rage these days when the U.S. government has failed to bring a single criminal case against the culprits who caused the 2008 financial crisis. Circle of Friends is not a defense of insider trading, but it does offer an account of the politics of Wall Street crime fighting, revealing the behind-the-scenes ambitions that motivate headlines and burnish political careers.

To uncover the truth about a friend's disappearance, a fragile young woman must silence the ghosts of her past in this moving debut tale that intertwines mystery, madness, betrayal, love, and literature. My past was never more than one thought, one breath, one heartbeat away. And then, on that particular October evening, it literally arrived at my doorstep. Twenty-two-year-old Ruby Rousseau is haunted by memories of Tarble, the women's college she fled from 10 months earlier, and the painful love affair that pushed her to the brink of tragedy. When a suitcase belonging to a former classmate named Beth arrives on her doorstep, Ruby is plunged into a dark mystery. Beth has gone missing, and the suitcase is the only tangible evidence of her whereabouts. Inside the bag, Ruby discovers a tattered copy of Virginia Woolf's A Room of One's Own, the book she believes was a harbinger of her madness. Is someone trying to send her a message - and what does it mean? The search for answers leads to Tarble. As Ruby digs into Beth's past, she has no choice but to confront her own - an odyssey that will force her to reexamine her final days at school, including the married professor who broke her heart and the ghosts of illustrious writers, dead by their own hand, who beckoned her to join their tragic circle. But will finding the truth finally set Ruby free . . . or send her over the edge of sanity? 9780062306517 N N ©2013 Amy Gail Hansen;(P)2013 HarperCollinsPublishers http://www.audible.de/pd/B00E67X3XE?source_code=PNHFA145032019009G&ipRedirectOverride=true http://www.audible.de/pd/B00E67X3XE?source_code=PNHFA145032019009G&ipRedirectOverride=true Amelia Bedelia Tries Her Luck (Unabridged) 2.95 AVAILABLE Amelia Bedelia Tries Her Luck (Unabridged) Amelia Bedelia Tries Her Luck (Unabridged) Herman Parish, Lynne Avril Amelia Bedelia's day starts with a crash and a broken mirror.
