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.

Oxford University Press 1999 0195038347 / 9780195038347 Hardcover New New

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.

Harper Publishing 0060159812 / 9780060159818 Hardcover New New 
This is the true story of how the Mount Vernon machine engineered the first election of George Washington. They gave him the best campaign slogan in history: First in War, First in Peace, first in the hearts of his countrymen, but like most political slogans, it was not all true. As a general, Washington had a few shortcomings. He won the war by losing seemingly all the major battles except the last one. Often his flank was unprotected. In peace, he perfected the art of denying he was a candidate. In this book the author presents and humorously analyzes the true facts of the most underreported presidential election in history.

Reagan and Thatcher  The Difficult Relationship, Richard Aldous
17 Richard Aldous Reagan and Thatcher The Difficult Relationship
Norton Publishing 2012 0393069001 / 9780393069006 Hardcover New New 
An iconic friendship, an uneasy alliance - a revisionist account of the couple that ended the Cold War. During the last chapter of the struggle against the Soviet Union, Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher formed the most compelling head-of-state pairing since Churchill and Roosevelt. Often characterized as a "political marriage", it would persist well after the conflict and has solidified in the public consciousness. This is a brilliant diplomatic biography in which the author argues that the idea of a "Churchillian" relationship between Reagan and Thatcher is more myth than fact. They cultivated an image of friendliness all the while clashing over issues including Poland, the Siberian gas pipeline, the Falklands War, the Strategic Defense Initiative missile defense and more.
