Here are the questsin Rising Bestsellers for the week of July 2, 2018:
1. “England’s Rise and Decline: And What It Means Today” by Jon Lee Junior (CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform) — A daring but readable interpretation that blames Britain's decline on socialism and liberalism. Political correctness in the U.K. and U.S. is artfully exposed as hypocrisy. This grand strategic scope also greatly includes American politics. (Non-Fiction)
2. “Andrew Jackson and the Miracle of New Orleans: The Battle That Shaped America's Destiny” by Brian Kilmeade amd Don Yaeger (Sentinel) — Another history page-turner from the authors of the No. 1 bestsellers “George Washington's Secret Six” and “Thomas Jefferson and the Tripoli Pirates.” “Kilmeade and Yaeger draw on many firsthand accounts, notably Jackson’s own papers, to weave a lively narrative supported with ample endnotes and a bibliography,” HistoryNet writes. (Non-Fiction)
3. “Killing England: The Brutal Struggle for American Independence” by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard (Henry Holt and Co) — In this latest addition to the meticulously researched “Killing” series, the former Fox titan known for his “No Spin News” tells the story of our nation’s founding through the eyes of George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and England's King George III. (Non-Fiction)
4. “The Plot to Destroy Trump: How the Deep State Fabricated the Russian Dossier to Subvert the President” by Theodore Roosevelt Malloch (Skyhorse Publishing) — Ripped from the pages of today’s headlines, with insightful analysis, Malloch weaves the reader through the attempts by members of the entrenched bureaucracy to undermine the agenda of the 45th president. (Non-Fiction)
5. “The President Is Missing” by James Patterson and Bill Clinton (Little, Brown and Company) — A perennial bestselling author and a former U.S. president teamed up to write a White House thriller with “a sprinkling of psychological authenticity,” according to The Guardian’s Mark Lawson. It’s the satisfying collaboration of “one writer with an unusual skill at thriller plotting and another with an exceptional grasp of global politics.” (Fiction)
6. “The Vanishing American Adult: Our Coming-of-Age Crisis-and How to Rebuild a Culture of Self-Reliance” by Sen. Ben Sasse (St. Martin's Press) — “In an era of safe spaces, trigger warnings, and an unprecedented election, the country's youth are in crisis,” warns the Nebraska Republican. (Non-Fiction)
7. “Billionaire at the Barricades: The Populist Revolution from Reagan to Trump” by Laura Ingraham (St. Martin's Press) — This latest read from the talk radio and TV host describes the revolution Americans participated in on November 8, 2016, that resulted in the surprise election of Donald Trump. But the revolution didn’t begin with Trump — it started 36 years earlier with Ronald Reagan. (Non-Fiction)
8. “Fahrenheit 451” by Ray Bradbury (Simon & Schuster) — With American colleges, universities, and the Antifa movement limiting the First Amendment freedom of speech, this Bradbury classic deserves a second look. It depicts a dystopian near-future in which books are outlawed and the people are mollified with mindless state-controlled entertainment. The New York Times referred to it as “the book for our social media age,” and the fact that it’s been banned by various libraries during its 63-year history is reason enough to give it a read. (Fiction)
9. “Three Days in January: Dwight Eisenhower’s Final Mission” by Bret Baier (William Morrow) — In this, his first of the “Three Days” series, the Fox News Channel chief political anchor exposes the extraordinary leadership of President Dwight Eisenhower during the opening days of the Cold War. (Non-Fiction)
10. “ConservaLexicon III: The Dialects of Conservative Wisdom and Liberal Dogma (Volume 3)” by Joe Schaller (self-published) — Schaller‘s third book in the series, this is an exploration into the cultural literacy of conservative thought and wisdom; this book also exposes the psychosocial cultural dynamics, the underbelly, of liberalism. A must-read to recognize the left’s use of deception to acquire power, and understand the dichotomy of us versus them. (Non-Fiction)
