The Price of Politics, Bob Woodward
3 Bob Woodward The Price of Politics
Simon & Schuster 2012 1451651104 / 9781451651102 First Edition Hardcover New New 
This is a new hardcover with dust jacket. The book chronicles the inside story of how Pres. Obama and the Congress tried, and failed, to restore the American economy and set it on a course to stability. It spans the yrs just before Obama's inauguration in early 2009 and lasting through the summer of 2012. This is the secret world of Washington policymaking crafted from notes, documents, interviews and more. At the center is a high stakes personal and political struggle between the president and the speaker of the house and takes the reader through the attempts to make a "grand bargain" of entitlement cuts and increased tax revenue. It shows how this bargain was never reached and why, and how the players settled for stopgap measures and nothing more. Fascinating inside look at Washington, gridlock, party lines, and who really suffers, the American public.

5 David M. Kennedy Freedom From Fear The American People in Depression and War, 1929-1945
Oxford University Press 1999 0195038347 / 9780195038347 Hardcover New New 
This is a new collectible hardcover with dust jacket. 1999 Oxford University Press. Between 1929 and 1945, two great American travails were visited upon the American people: The Great Depression and World War Two. This book tells the story of how American endured, and eventually prevailed, in the face of those unprecedented calamities. The author vividly demonstrates the economic crisis of the '30's was far more than a simple reaction to the excesses of the '20's. The economic boom of the industrial revolution gyrated through boom and bust cycles, and average Americans eked out life on the margins. Prosperity was not uniformly shared. Then came the New Deal and a lasting legacy. But, even as the New Deal was coping with the Depression, along came Hitler and his thirst for power. The same generation who endured the Depression now had to bear arms and sacrifice for the great war. This is a comprehensive account of events that shaped the American future.
