<b>INSTANT <i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTSELLER</b><br /><br /><b>Why President Trump has left us with no choice but to remove him from office, as explained by celebrated Supreme Court lawyer and former Acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal.</b><br /><br /> No one is above the law. This belief is as American as freedom of speech and turkey on Thanksgiving鈥攈eld sacred by Democrats and Republicans alike. But as celebrated Supreme Court lawyer and former Acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal argues in <i>Impeach</i>, if President Trump is not held accountable for repeatedly asking foreign powers to interfere in the 2020 presidential election, this could very well mark the end of our democracy. To quote President George Washington鈥檚 Farewell Address: 鈥淔oreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of republican government.鈥?Impeachment should always be our last resort, explains Katyal, but our founders, our principles, and our Constitution leave us with no choice but to impeach President Trump鈥攂efore it鈥檚 too late.聽

<b>Instant聽<i>New York Times </i>Bestseller<br /><br />"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 /></b>There are questions that the Mueller report couldn't鈥攐r wouldn't鈥攁nswer. What actually happened to instigate the Russia investigation? Did President Trump鈥檚 meddling incriminate him? There鈥檚 no mystery to what Trump thinks. He claims that the Deep State, a cabal of career bureaucrats鈥攁mong them, Andrew McCabe, Lisa Page, and Peter Strzok, previously little known figures within the FBI whom he has obsessively and publically reviled鈥攊s concerned only with protecting its own power and undermining the democratic process. Conversely, James Comey has defended the FBI as incorruptible apolitical public servants who work tirelessly to uphold the rule of law. <br /> 聽<br /> For the first time, bestselling author James B. Stewart sifts these conflicting accounts to present a clear-eyed view of what exactly happened inside the FBI in the lead-up to the 2016 election, drawing on scores of interviews with key FBI, Department of Justice, and White House officialsand voluminous transcripts, notes, and internal reports. In full detail, this is the dramatic saga of the FBI鈥檚 simultaneous investigations of both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump鈥攖he first time in American history the FBI has been thrust into the middle of both parties' campaigns for the presidency. Stewart shows what exactly was set in motion when Trump fired Comey, triggering the appointment of Robert Mueller as an independent special counsel and causing the FBI to open a formal investigation into the president himself. And how this unprecedented event joined in ongoing combat two vital institutions of American democracy: the presidency and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.聽<br /> 聽<br /> At stake in this epic battle is the rule of law itself, the foundation of the U.S. Constitution. There is no room for compromise, but plenty for collateral damage. The reputations of both sides have already been harmed, perhaps irrevocably, and at great cost to American democracy. <i>Deep State</i> goes beyond the limits of the legally constrained Mueller report, showing how the president鈥檚 obsession with the idea of a conspiracy against him is still upending lives and sending shockwaves through both the FBI and the Department of Justice. In this world-historical struggle鈥擳rump versus intelligence agencies鈥擲tewart shows us in rare style what鈥檚 real and what matters now. And for the looming 2020 election.

鈥淢aybe the question isn鈥檛 what happened to Alan Dershowitz. Maybe it鈥檚 what happened to everyone else.鈥濃€?lt;i>Politico</i><br /><br /><b><i>New York Times </i>bestselling author Alan Dershowitz, one of America鈥檚 most respected legal scholars, proves鈥攚ith incontrovertible evidence鈥攖hat he is entirely innocent of the sexual misconduct accusations against him, while suggesting a roadmap for how such allegations should truly be handled in a just society. 聽</b><br /><br />Alan Dershowitz has been called 鈥渙ne of the most prominent and consistent defenders of civil liberties in America鈥?by <i>Politico </i>and 鈥渢he nation鈥檚 most peripatetic civil liberties lawyer and one of its most distinguished defenders of individual rights鈥?by <i>Newsweek</i>. Yet he has come under intense criticism for applying those same principles, and his famed 鈥渟hoe鈥憃n鈥憈he鈥憃ther鈥慺oot test,鈥?to those accused of sexual misconduct.<br /><br /> In <i>Guilt by Accusation</i>, Dershowitz provides an in鈥慸epth analysis of the false accusations against him, alongside a full presentation of the exculpatory evidence that proves his account, including emails from his accuser and an admission of his innocence from her lawyer, David Boies. Additionally, he examines current attitudes toward accusations of sexual misconduct, which are today, in the age of #MeToo, accepted as implicit truth without giving the accused a fair chance to defend themselves and their innocence, and suggests possible pathways back to a society and legal system in which due process is respected above public opinion and the whims of social media mobs.<br /><br /> This book is Alan Dershowitz鈥檚 plea for fairness for both accuser and accused, his principled stand for due process no matter the allegation, and his compelling assertion of his own innocence. It is essential reading for anyone who wants to know the inside story behind the accusations against him or who cares about the current societal debate over how we should handle accusations of sexual misconduct.<br /><br /> The #MeToo movement has generally been a force for good, but as with many good movements, it is being exploited by some bad people for personal profit. Supporters of the #MeToo movement must not allow false accusers to hurt real victims by hiding behind its virtuous shield, turning it into an exploitive sword against innocent people.

It will save lives." -Washington Post </b><br /> <b><i><br /> </i>An award-winning journalist's intimate investigation of the true scope of domestic violence, revealing how the roots of America's most pressing social crises are buried in abuse that happens behind closed doors. </b><br /> <b><br /> </b>We call it domestic violence. We call it private violence. Sometimes we call it intimate terrorism. But whatever we call it, we generally do not believe it has anything at all to do with us, despite the World Health Organization deeming it a 鈥済lobal epidemic.鈥?In America, domestic violence accounts for 15 percent of all violent crime, and yet it remains locked in silence, even as its tendrils reach unseen into so many of our most pressing national issues, from our economy to our education system, from mass shootings to mass incarceration to #MeToo. We still have not taken the true measure of this problem.<br /> <br /> In <i>No Visible Bruises</i>, journalist Rachel Louise Snyder gives context for what we don't know we're seeing. She frames this urgent and immersive account of the scale of domestic violence in our country around key stories that explode the common myths-that if things were bad enough, victims would just leave; that a violent person cannot become nonviolent; that shelter is an adequate response; and most insidiously that violence inside the home is a private matter, sealed from the public sphere and disconnected from other forms of violence. Through the stories of victims, perpetrators, law enforcement, and reform movements from across the country, Snyder explores the real roots of private violence, its far-reaching consequences for society, and what it will take to truly address it.
