The Meaning of IS, Barr, Bob
1 Barr, Bob The Meaning of IS
Stroud & Hall 2004 0974537624 / 9780974537627 Hardcover Acceptable - "Gift inscription inside cover" underlining through out the book 
This is a great eye opening book in to how the impeachment of Clinton should have removed him for office because of his criminal activities in the areas of sellling out our national security to China, repeatedly violating American citizens civil liberties and repeated stonewalling of investagators of his criminal activities (Monica Lewensky was only a minor thing in the grand scheme of things). He explains how the impeachment process was hampered by both Dems and Republicans who were more interested in not rocking the boat so they can keep getting easyly reelected (Don't stop the gravy train). He is not a partisan hatchet man but a man of principle that recently said in reply to a question on the campaign trail as the 2008 Libertarian Party candidate for President that if he had to choose nither George W Bush or Bill Clinton to be president he would have to take Clinton. This from a man who was the lead man on the impeachment of Clinton and who served Reagan and was a 8 year Republican Congressmen.

We Can Have Peace I The Holy Land, Carter, Jimmy
4 Carter, Jimmy We Can Have Peace I The Holy Land
Simon and Schuster 2009 1439140693 / 9781439140697 Paperback New 
From Publishers Weekly The former president's audio edition of his latest title has an enhanced CD featuring downloadable, helpful maps and relevant historical documents. The maps, in particular, add valuable context and demonstrate the volatile overlapping of cultures and faiths in a relatively small sliver of land. As an added bonus, the package also contains a sample CD from Bringing Peace to a Changing World, the third volume in Carter's acclaimed Sunday Mornings in Plains Bible study series. Perhaps comparing a straightup audio book adaptation with recordings of Carter in a dynamic and spontaneous teaching environment is unfair, but listeners will notice the stark contrast between Carter's competent but stilted delivery in We Can Have Peace and the animated and engaging speaking style of Sunday Mornings in Plains. A Simon & Schuster hardcover (reviewed online). (Jan.) Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.

The Bear and The Dragon, Clancy, Tom
5 Clancy, Tom The Bear and The Dragon
Putnam 2000 039914563X / 9780399145636 Hardcover Good - a couple of red underlines 
Time and again, Tom Clancy's novels have been praised not only for their big-scale drama and propulsive narrative drive but for their cutting-edge prescience in predicting future events. In The Bear and the Dragon, the future is very near at hand indeed. Newly elected in his own right, Jack Ryan has found that being President has gotten no easier: domestic pitfalls await him at every turn; there's a revolution in Liberia; the Asian economy is going down the tubes; and now, in Moscow, someone may have tried to take out the chairman of the SVR--the former KGB--with a rocket-propelled grenade. Things are unstable enough in Russia without high-level assassination, but even more disturbing may be the identities of the potential assassins. Were they political enemies, the Russian Mafia, or disaffected former KGB? Or, Ryan wonders, is something far more dangerous at work here? Ryan is right. For even while he dispatches his most trusted eyes and ears, including black ops specialist John Clark, to find out the truth of the matter, forces in China are moving ahead with a plan of truly audacious proportions. If they succeed, the world as we know it will never look the same. If they fail...the consequences will be unspeakable. Blending the exceptional realism and authenticity that are his hallmarks with intricate plotting, razor-sharp suspense, and a remarkable cast of characters, this is Clancy at his best--and there is none better

Aladdin paperbacks 2001 068984123X / 9780689841231 Paperback Verygood

He trained as a fighter pilot in the Texas Air National Guard before beginning a career in business. He then turned to Texas politics and served as governor there from 1994 to 2000. This is the very first children's biography to be published about the forty third president of the United States, including coverage of the historic 2000 election.

A Texan Looks at Lyndon, Haley, J. Evetts
10 Haley, J. Evetts A Texan Looks at Lyndon
Palo Duro Press 1964 Good - "Lois P. Davis" inside cover, some underlining noted 
Growing up in Texas, I found this book to be alarmingly accurate. Living in Jim Wells County, I found this book to be no less than the absolute truth. I knew most of the people mentioned, or their children (who of course were not only grown, but certainly more than adults) Mr. J. Evetts Haley and his family were banished from Texas, his book banned and illegal to own. Some things were not spoken of in Texas, but Mr. Haley told it all. (or most all) It is a shame that no one else picked up where Mr. Haley left off. But there has never been a more honest, forthright, or honestly correct book written about any of our politicians. I found no discrepancies in names, dates, times or events in this book. I perhaps saw just a bit more evidence than he did, or perhaps, he chose not to mention all that he had seen, but after reading the book, I rather doubt that he hid anything that he knew. This book will be passed down to my children and hopefully to their children until the entire truth will be found.

The IInside on LBJ, Kluckhohn, Frank L.
13 Kluckhohn, Frank L. The IInside on LBJ
Select Books - Monarch books Inc. 1964 Paper back Acceptable - some underlining through the book 
THE INSIDE ON LBJ ~If President Johnson is re-elected will he bring anything new into the national picture, or will he compound the failures of the Administration he inherited? ~Will our "passion for peace" and our trading with Russia further lull our allies - and us - into a false sense of security? ~Will we continue to disarm unilaterally in the childish hope that Russia, given this self-deluding example, might follow suit? ~Will we continue to "turn the other cheek" when insignificant backward nations slap us in the face? ~Will we continue to apologize when the Russians shoot down our unarmed planes? ~Will all the presidential advisers continue to be left-wingers - men who work night and day to give up our sovereignty, even while every other nation in the world is fanatically working toward extreme nationalism? Only Lyndon Johnson has the answers to all these questions. But if the measure of a man can be gleaned from his past life, the opinions he has voiced over a period of time and his previous voting record, then the answers are here in this comprehensive study of LBJ - the man, the promoter, the wheeler-dealer, the opportunist, the President.

John Adams, McCullough, David
14 McCullough, David John Adams
Simon & Schuster 2001 0684813637 / 9780684813639 hardcover Like New 
"The American Revolution was made by British subjects, individual men and women who, by our modern sense of proportions, were amazingly few in number. the war they fought was the most important in our history, and as too few today seem to understand, it very quickly became a world war. But the revolution began well before the war. as John Adams famously observed, "The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people." and it changed the world. "There was no American nation, no army at the start, no sweeping popular support for rebellion, nor much promise of success. No rebelling people had ever broken free from the grip of colonial empire, and those we call patriots were also clearly traitors to the King. and so we must never forget, when they pledged 'their lies, their fortunes, their sacred honor,' it was not in a manner of speaking. "We call them the Founding fathers, in tribute but tend to see them as distant and a bit unreal, like figures I a costume pageant. Yet very real they were, real as all that stirred their 'hearts and minds,' and it was meaning in our time as never before. "With change accelerating all around, more and more we need understanding and appreciation of those principles upon which the republic was founded. What were those 'self-evident' truths that so many risked all for, fought for, suffered and died for? What was the source of their courage? Who were those people? I don't think we can ever know enough about them? - David McCullough

Mornings o Horseback, McCullough, David
15 McCullough, David Mornings o Horseback
Simon and Schuster 1981 0671227114 / 9780671227111 
FROM THE #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF JOHN ADAMS Winner of the 1982 National Book Award for Biography, Mornings on Horseback is the brilliant biography of the young Theodore Roosevelt. Hailed as a masterpiece by Newsday, it is the story of a remarkable little boy -- seriously handicapped by recurrent and nearly fatal attacks of asthma -- and his struggle to manhood. His father -- the first Theodore Roosevelt, "Greatheart," -- is a figure of unbounded energy, enormously attractive and selfless, a god in the eyes of his small, frail namesake. His mother -- Mittie Bulloch Roosevelt -- is a Southerner and celebrated beauty. Mornings on Horseback spans seventeen years -- from 1869 when little "Teedie" is ten, to 1886 when he returns from the West a "real life cowboy" to pick up the pieces of a shattered life and begin anew, a grown man, whole in body and spirit. This is a tale about family love and family loyalty...about courtship, childbirth and death, fathers and sons...about gutter politics and the tumultuous Republican Convention of 1884...about grizzly bears, grief and courage, and "blessed" mornings on horseback at Oyster Bay or beneath the limitless skies of the Badlands.

Partners in Power: The Clintons and Their America, Morris, Roger
16 Morris, Roger Partners in Power: The Clintons and Their America
A John Macrae Book, henry Holt and Company 1996 0805028048 / 9780805028041 Hardcover Very good 
In the finest tradition of investigative journalism, Roger Morris goes far behind the public facade to expose the inner politics, personal passions, and gathering moral compromise that marked the rise of Bill and Hillary Clinton. After three years of painstaking research and hundreds of interviews, the author, a prizewinning historian, reveals in riveting detail the untold secrets of one of the most ambitious partnerships in modern politics. Starting with the roadhouses and mob-ruled politics of the old South, Partners in Power draws the reader into the dramatic, seamy, largely hidden world that gave rise to - and explains - the Clinton presidency. Morris weaves together three essential themes: the parallel lives and tortured relationship of the Clintons personally; the essence of the bipartisan misrule that is Washington, D.C. (how the collusive culture of our national government defeats change); and, most telling, the behind-the-scenes story of the making of a president in a world where corrupting money and favors flow freely and the tyranny of wealthy interests and their captive politicians mock democracy. Beyond myriad scandals - whether shady bond, banking, and commodity "deals"; the Whitewater imbroglio; abuses of power in covering up sexual infidelities; document "shredding parties"; the Vince Foster tragedy; or a multibillion- dollar Arkansas gunrunning and drug-smuggling ring implicating the Colombian cartel, the CIA, organized crime, and two Republican presidents as well as a Democratic governor and future president - Morris's evocation of a climb to power, is the most candid, revealing, and courageous portrait ever drawn of a sitting president. In its magisterial analysis of a political system gone lethally wrong, Partners in Power offers a brilliant perspective on a government and ultimately a people. As a dual biography of a first couple, it is without precedent in political literature.

Dodd & Mead Company 1952 Hardcover Very good - normal shelf wear Clean text and photos clean and bright 
"Dr. Randall is known to scholars throughout the land as the profoundest living student of Lincoln's career. In his writings, marked by keenness of insight and independence of judgment as well as thoroughness of research, he sets forth what is in many respects a new Lincoln; the fullest, clearest, and most accurate portrait of Lincoln in the critical years of the Civil War yet presented. I its destruction of old fables and errors, its marshaling of new material, and its fine interpretation of Lincoln's mid and personality, the biography stands out as a great landmark." - Allen Nevins, Department of History, Columbian University.

David Schippers, the former chief Investigative Counsel of the House Judiciary Committee and a loyal Democrat, went against his party, the press, and public opinion to build a powerful case against the most corrupt President in American History and bring him to justice. But in this startling book, Schippers shows how the entire impeachment process was what Chicago politicians call a "First Ward election" - a rigged ball game, a sellout. and he tells you who took the dives.

Love, Jack, Von Post, Gunilla
20 Von Post, Gunilla Love, Jack
New York Crown Publishers 1997 0609600958 / 9780609600955 Fourth edition Hardcover Very Good Yes 
He was a dashing young senator pursued by an Italian contessa and the imposing forces of his destiny.  She was a 21-year-old Swedish aristocrat away from home for the first time.  Their accidental meeting at a port in the Riviera changed both their lives forever. Spanning two continents and the Atlantic Ocean, unfolding over a six-year period beginning in 1953, Love, Jack is the story of a transcendent but heartbreaking love between two people at the peak of their youth and beauty, a love that seemed impossible but could not be denied.  Here is an intimate portrait of John Kennedy never before seen: a gentle, kind, and caring man, intensely passionate and full of life but a man who faces great difficulty adjusting to the demanding role history and his father have assigned him. Driven by his love for Gunilla von Post, Jack risked the sort of exposure that might have ruined his career and was willing to endure debilitating pain to cross the ocean for her.  For the sake of her passion, Gunilla risked the ostracism of her family and friends, ready to turn her back on the country she loved. Love, Jack is the heartwarming account of a history-making romance, a "brief, shining moment" before Camelot, before an assassin's bullets shattered the hopes of a nation a moment in time that Gunilla von Post is at last ready to share with the world.
