2 Daschle, Tom; D'Orso, Michael Like No Other Time: the 107th Congress and the Two Years That Changed America Forever
1400049555 / 9781400049554; The 107th Congress faced a time like no other in the life of the nation. This was the era of the first presidential election to be decided by the U. S. Supreme Court, the fifty-fifty senate, the horror of September 11, the anthrax attacks on media and the government (including Daschle's own office) the war on terrorism, corporate scandals that shook the economy, and other dramatic events, all leading up to the historic midterm election of 2002. Daschle offers a riveting account of his singular perspective on a time when the nation faced deadly and elusive external enemies and a level of domestic political contention rarely sen in American history. Senator Daschle is unflinching in his impressions of the key political figures of our time from both parties. The result is an acutely perceptive assessment of how our govenment met - and sometimes did not meet - the challenges of a remarkable era. 292 pages including an index. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

3 Hiro, Dilip Iraq: in the Eye of the Storm
1560254777 / 9781560254775; George W. Bush could succeed where Osama bin Laden failed in provoking a clash of civilizations between Islam and the West by launching a "pre-emptive" attack on Iraq. This is one of the disturbing concludions to Iraq: IN the Eye of the Storm, a wide-ranging and thought provoking book by Middle East expert Dilip Hiro. He looks beyond the spin of the Bush administration and Saddam's Baathist regime to explore Iraq in all it's complexity - from the daily life of its people to its turbulent history and complex regional relations. While laying bare Saddam's cult of personality and his extensive intelligence apparatus, he details several unsuccessful attempts by the US-backed opposition to oust him. He provides an objective account of the performance of the UN inspectors, and matches the descriptions of Saddam's "cheat-and-retreat" tactics with Washingtons flagrant abuse of UN inspection in which personnel were used for espionage with the aim of overthrowing Saddam's government. 271 pages including notes, appendices and an index. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall.

4 Oxnam, G. Bromley I Protest: My Experience with the House Committee on Un-American Activities
The informer is infiltrating American life at the national, state, and local level. He invades the privacy of the home, reports on classroom discussions and library accessions, and summons his colleagues to challenge the sanctity of the church. He is a man of the shadows, born of fear and contributing to it. He speaks in whispers. Justice William O. Douglas describes him as "nameless" and "faceless. " He is not subpaeonaed, answers no roll call, dares not face the man he accuses. He is as un-American as the Nazi Gauleiter or the Russian commisar. But he is here. He strikes at the heart of American freedom. He is a creature of the police state, an alien and malignant growth. Written in the foreword by Bishop G. Bromley Oxnam, about his experience with the house committee on un-American activities. A frightening look at how paranoia can change the country, and some of it sounds very familiar. The book has a small sticker on the inside cover from another book store. The jacket is scuffed and has wear and chips at the spine ends and corners. There is a 1/2" tear at the bottom back.; Octavo (standard book size); 186 pages
