MARION MARLOWE ENTRAPPED - A Victim of Professional Jealousy by Grace Shirley Book Resume:

A girl, as poor as a church mouse, arrives in the city from the country without a friend in the world. One night, Vandergrift, the manager of the Fern Garden Hall of Song heard her singing on the street. Enraptured by her beauty, he found her voice, too, was wonderful, and, of course, he stopped to listen. It was just before his opening and he needed a singer, inasmuch as his present prima donna, ‘Carlotta,’ was engaged to sing in the rival garden just across the street from his place. Well, to make a long story short, he made terms with this girl at once—offered her a big price for one night, thinking that the offer would dazzle her so much that she would feel too grateful to listen to any other offers. Well, he billed her that night as ‘Ila de Parloa,’ and her song was great; she was the hit of the evening. The very next morning she took her money and bolted, and Vandergrift lost track of her entirely.” Who was this mysterious beauty and where did she go? Did Vandergrift find her again or did she find employment elsewhere? 10% of the profit from the sale of this book will be donated to charity. ============= KEYWORDS-TAGS: Marion Marlowe, Entrapment, sing, hall of song, beer garden, , accusation, accuse, Allyn, apartment, ass, astonishment, audience, beautiful, beauty, Bert, Blackwell’s, breakfast, breasts, Brookes, business, bum, buttocks, calm, Carlotta, cat, carriage, Celestials, cheeks, Chinaman, Clayte, Clayton, company, creature, cry, dead, deliberate, divan, Dollie, dreadful, dressing-room, Everett, extraordinary, false, fingers, flash, flush, furious, girl, glance, Graham, Green, handkerchief, Heaven, hideous, Hospital, house, Howard, husband, Ila de Parloa, innocent, instant, Island, Jack, jealous, kiss, lamp, laugh, laundry, Lindsay, Lindsay, lips, lucky, magnificent, man, manager, Marion, Marlowe, message, mischief, money, Moore, Nurse, opium, Oriental, perfect, performance, pussy, prisoner, property, Ralph, Ray, revolver, self-control, sharply, shriek, signorita, singer, sister, smoke, stage, sword, touch, trifle, vengeance, victim, weapon, whisper, wicked, woman, world, young, grace shirley

A Victim of Higher Space by Algernon Blackwood Book Resume:

Blackwood was born in Shooter's Hill (today part of south-east London, but then part of northwest Kent) and educated at Wellington College. His father was a Post Office administrator who, according to Peter Penzoldt, "though not devoid of genuine good-heartedness, had appallingly narrow religious ideas".Blackwood had a varied career, farming in Canada, operating a hotel, as a newspaper reporter in New York City, and, throughout his adult life, an occasional essayist for various periodicals. In his late thirties, he moved back to England and started to write stories of the supernatural. He was very successful, writing at least ten original collections of short stories and eventually appearing on both radio and television to tell them. He also wrote fourteen novels, several children's books, and a number of plays, most of which were produced but not published. He was an avid lover of nature and the outdoors, and many of his stories reflect this. English writer of ghost stories and supernatural fiction, of whom Lovecraft wrote: "He is the one absolute and unquestioned master of weird atmosphere." His powerful story "The Willows," which effectively describes another dimension impinging upon our own, was reckoned by Lovecraft to be not only "foremost of all" Blackwood's tales but the best "weird tale" of all time. (Unfortunately, Blackwood, who was familiar with Lovecraft's work, failed to return the compliment. As he told Peter Penzoldt, he found "spiritual terror" missing in his young admirer's writing, something he considered all-important in his own.) Among his thirty-odd books, Blackwood wrote a series of stories and short novels published as John Silence, Physician Extraordinary (1908), which featured a "psychic detective" who combined the skills of a Sherlock Holmes and a psychic medium. Blackwood also wrote light fantasy and juvenile books. The son of a preacher, Blackwood had a life-long interest in the supernatural, the occult, and spiritualism, and firmly believed that humans possess latent psychic powers. The autobiography Episodes Before Thirty (1923) tells of his lean years as a journalist in New York. In the late 1940s, Blackwood had a television program on the BBC on which he read . . . ghost stories!

An Edwardian murder mystery set on the unforgiving Antarctic tundra . . . Captain Sir Eugene Stewart chose the gentlemen to join his great 1910 expedition to the South Pole with great precision, each man selected for his skills to survive the Antarctic winter. Reflecting sixty years later, Sir Anthony Piers, an oil painter and watercolorist chosen to capture the long midnight lights of the South Pole, finally reveals the truth of the New British South Polar Expedition and the murder committed on their journey. Who among the expedition would kill Victor Henneker, an unlikeable and mischievous journalist only six months into the trek? Telling of complete isolation, absolute darkness, unrelenting wind, and slowly-approaching starvation, Sir Anthony Piers confronts the demons and truths of this hellish expedition after sixty years of silence.

Against The Tides & The Times (on occasion) by James F. O'Donnell Book Resume:

Jim O’Donnell, who wrote this book in the third person because he’s allergic to the perpendicular pronoun I, has had a “careen” rather than a career. After attending three colleges in four years and getting his MA from Fordham in history, Jim O’Donnell worked a smorgasbord of jobs in college teaching counter intelligence, newspapering at the United Nations, followed by a decade as a confi dential aide to a DA, council president, and strongest candidate for governor against Nelson Rockefeller. In the interim, he also served as director of Hubert Humphrey’s winning campaign for president in New York. In his last two jobs, he tried to ease the building of a nuclear plant on Long Island for over seven years and fi nally ended as a consultant to a company whose chairman became a major fi gure in the pursuit of peace with justice in Northern Ireland. He is presently at work on a second book on a future, , and perhaps last, pope. He admits to being lucky in being supported by a very patient wife, Elaine nee Bruck, of Ohio. They met in Japan and have four children and ten grands and numerous family and friends here and overseas. About this book, he says: it has its moments for the political and crime buff, the scholar, and philosopher as well as the historian. “We’ve been surrounded by good people all our life and remember some of them here; it’s too bad more of their character isn’t better known and didn’t rub off.”

Two Sides of the Same Coin & Tales Side Up, the former of which included, as per custom back then, an aphoristic appendix, this author decided to republish them in one volume (minus the aphorisms) for convenience's sake, in the interests, one might say, of structural and thematic continuity together with a certain prosy purism that sets definite bounds to the scope and style of the contents, dovetailed, as they are, into a somewhat voluminous but nonetheless highly accessible project whose material spans the period 1976–84, during which virtually all of his fictional writings, including several novels, or works of 'long prose', were composed. – A Centretruths Editorial

After the Tall Timber by Renata Adler Book Resume:

What is really going on here? For decades Renata Adler has been asking and answering this question with unmatched urgency. In her essays and long-form journalism, she has captured the cultural zeitgeist, distrusted the accepted wisdom, and written stories that would otherwise go untold. As a staff writer at The New Yorker from 1963 to 2001, Adler reported on civil rights from Selma, Alabama; on the war in Biafra, the Six-Day War, and the Vietnam War; on the Nixon impeachment inquiry and Congress; on cultural life in Cuba. She has also written about cultural matters in the United States, films (as chief film critic for The New York Times), books, politics, television, and pop music. Like many journalists, she has put herself in harm’s way in order to give us the news, not the “news” we have become accustomed to—celebrity journalism, conventional wisdom, received ideas—but the actual story, an account unfettered by ideology or consensus. She has been unafraid to speak up when too many other writers have joined the pack. In this sense, Adler is one of the few independent journalists writing in America today. This collection of Adler’s nonfiction draws on Toward a Radical Middle (a selection of her earliest New Yorker pieces), A Year in the Dark (her film reviews), and Canaries in the Mineshaft (a selection of essays on politics and media), and also includes uncollected work from the past two decades. The more recent pieces are concerned with, in her words, “misrepresentation, coercion, and abuse of public process, and, to a degree, the journalist’s role in it.” With a brilliant literary and legal mind, Adler parses power by analyzing language: the language of courts, of journalists, of political figures, of the man on the street. In doing so, she unravels the tangled narratives that pass for the resolution of scandal and finds the threads that others miss, the ones that explain what really is going on here—from the Watergate scandal, to the “preposterous” Kenneth Starr report submitted to the House during the Clinton impeachment inquiry, to the plagiarism and fabrication scandal of the former New York Times reporter Jayson Blair. And she writes extensively about the Supreme Court and the power of its rulings, including its fateful decision in Bush v. Gore.

On Distance, Belonging, Isolation and the Quarantined Church of Today by Pablo Irizar Book Resume:

From the closure of churches during the pandemic, and therefore in the absence of a community of worship, arises the pressing theological question: what does it mean to belong 'from a distance'? Although many have reacted to this question by providing virtual alternatives for activities and by reaffirming solidarity in times of hardship, a theological response requires articulating the effects of quarantine and distancing on what it means to belong in the Church. Fundamentally, what does it mean to belong, and is it possible to belong anew after the pandemic? This book addresses these questions by carefully drawing from the thought of Augustine of Hippo, whose life and thought fittingly echoes the course of our times.

Islamophobic hate crimes have increased significantly following the terrorist attacks of 9/11 and 7/7. More recently, the rhetoric surrounding Trump’s election and presidency, Brexit, the rise of far-right groups and ISIS-inspired terrorist attacks worldwide have promoted a climate where Islamophobia and anti-Muslim sentiments have become ‘legitimised’. The Routledge International Handbook of Islamophobia provides a comprehensive single-volume collection of key readings in Islamophobia. Consisting of 32 chapters accessibly written by scholars, policy makers and practitioners, it seeks to examine the nature, extent, implications of, and responses to Islamophobic hate crime both nationally and internationally. This volume will appeal to undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as postdoctoral researchers interested in fields such as Criminology, Victimology, Sociology, Social Policy, Religious Studies, Law and related Social Sciences subjects. It will also appeal to scholars, policy makers and practitioners working in and around the areas of Islamophobic hate crimes.

Voices in the Midst by Catherine Ann Sabatino Book Resume:

This is not a book for the faint- hearted. This topic effects every one of us whether we realize it or not- and it is one that the writer crafts with honor. It is an explosively heart-rendering "must read" that deals with the residuals of severe child abuse and the squalid monsters who commit such horrendous acts- monsters who hide among us all. Catherine's brutal honesty is commendably brave-She spares nothing in order to get her message across for her readers to get the full feeling of the story. With keen empathy and vibrancy, Catherine takes you on a journey of finalizing contingent and prevailing wisdom. The reader is taken into the lives and the sensations of such victims with specific ardor. Her handling of the topic sets the readers feet onto the very misbegotten path that these unfortunate people were unwillingly cast onto. And she does it with such openly harsh tact. She artfully commends all victims into their rightful place by giving validating insight into the makings of the deep scars and the mechanisms that protrude into their lives. Some might view this book as a type of thriller or horror tale by way of its purely raw depiction of a sincere truth. The horizon is drawn via a variety of delicately captured candidness. You will tingle and sensate from this depiction of human-ugliness at it's best. The words may rip through you, but you will undoubtedly reach a poignant climax by the travels you go on with her main character. Catherine has succeeded in outlining the nefarious nature that brings about the subject with colorful detail in this creative non-fiction novel. You will not be able to put it down.

Victims' Rights and Advocacy at the International Criminal Court by T. Markus Funk Book Resume:

Since World War II, there have been some 250 conflicts throughout the world, leaving between 70-170 million atrocity crime victims. Unlike diseases or natural disasters, the injuries and tragedies of war are largely self-inflicted. Created in response to such outrages, the International Criminal Court (ICC) stands as the first and only permanent juridical body prosecuting genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity. Victims' Rights and Advocacy at the International Criminal Court introduces readers to the most significant restorative feature of the ICC's procedure: direct victim participation in war crime trials. Under this new model, the ICC has given victims a voice to speak out against their abusers. T. Markus Funk presents the first comprehensive guidance on this innovative dynamic, analyzing not just the procedural rules that apply, but also the practical problems in advocating for victims before the ICC. In the process, Funk provides an overview of ICC trial procedure, a candid assessment of the performance of the ICC and its predecessor tribunals, and a guide to the development of victims' rights under international law. Not only does he identify areas needing reform and reconsideration, but he also provides readers with concrete solutions. Funk, an experienced federal prosecutor and law professor who has advised prosecutors and judges at criminal tribunals as the U.S. Justice Department's Resident Legal Advisor for Kosovo, draws on that experience to suggest ways in which the ICC can improve the lot of victims of the world's worst crimes. This second edition provides a detailed analysis of the newly recognized right of victims to participate in the trials of their accused abusers. The author guides the reader through this unique, controversial body of procedural and substantive rights for victims of atrocity crimes, and discusses how to qualify as Legal Counsel for Victims, and how to seek Reparations. In addition, the author provides updated caselaw and other information to reflect the ICC's current position on victim involvement and related procedure as well as text to show how these changes in the law affect ICC procedure and advocacy.

The German-Jewish Experience Revisited by Steven E. Aschheim,Vivian Liska Book Resume:

In the past decades the “German-Jewish phenomenon” (Derrida) has increasingly attracted the attention of scholars from various fields: Jewish studies, intellectual history, philosophy, literary and cultural studies, critical theory. In all its complex dimensions, the post-enlightenment German-Jewish experience is overwhelmingly regarded as the most quintessential and charged meeting of Jews with the project of modernity. Perhaps for this reason, from the eighteenth century through to our own time it has been the object of intense reflection, of clashing interpretations and appropriations. In both micro and macro case-studies, this volume engages the multiple perspectives as advocated by manifold interested actors, and analyzes their uses, biases and ideological functions over time in different cultural, disciplinary and national contexts. This volume includes both historical treatments of differing German-Jewish understandings of their experience – their relations to their Judaism, general culture and to other Jews – and contemporary reflections and competing interpretations as to how to understand the overall experience of German Jewry.

Chapters examine the founders of the new nation and their views on slavery and equality; African American resistance; how abolitionists moved from the margins to the center of political debate; key players in the anti-slavery struggle such as David Ruggles, Solomon Northup, Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglass, William Seward, and Abraham Lincoln; celebrations of freedom; as well as ongoing racism. Interspersed throughout the text are teaching notes that explore primary source documents and resources. The book draws on the latest scholarship to address and correct historical myths about both New York State before, during, and after the American Civil War, especially the pro-slavery, anti-civil rights stance of New York Copperhead Democrats in Congress, and the crucial role of Black and White abolitionists in ending slavery in the United States and challenging racial injustice. New York’s Grand Emancipation Jubilee is not only an effort to include more African Americans as historical actors and celebrate their activism and achievements, but to provide an opportunity to analyze historical moments for change, explore their dynamic, and discover the conditions that make some of them successful. “The book’s greatest strength is that it situates the activism of New York’s black abolitionists in the larger abolition movement. It is particularly nice to see prominent African Americans chronicled in a single book. Additionally, this work will make it easier for both secondary and college-level instructors to teach about the importance of African-American abolitionists in helping to put an end to slavery.” — Jane Dabel, author of A Respectable Woman: The Public Roles of African American Women in 19th-Century New York

More Lives than One: A Biography of Hans Fallada by Jenny Williams Book Resume:

Hans Fallada was a drug addict, womanizer, alcoholic, jailbird and thief. Yet he was also one of the most extraordinary storytellers of the twentieth century, whose novels, including Alone in Berlin, portrayed ordinary people in terrible times with a powerful humanity. This acclaimed biography, newly revised and completely updated, tells the remarkable story of Hans Fallada, whose real name was Rudolf Ditzen. Jenny Williams chronicles his turbulent life as a writer, husband and father, shadowed by mental torment and long periods in psychiatric care. She shows how Ditzen's decision to remain in Nazi Germany in 1939 led to his self-destruction, but also made him a unique witness to his country's turmoil. More Lives Than One unpicks the contradictory, flawed and fascinating life of a writer who saw the worst of humanity, yet maintained his belief in the decency of the 'little man'.

The Killing of Constable Keith Blakelock by Tony Moore Book Resume:

A closely observed account by someone working at senior level in the Met at the time. Deals with the biggest breakdown in community relations and law and order in modern English social and policing history. Looks at the entire sequence of events from their first rumblings to their aftermath and legacy. Published to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the tragic death of PC Blakelock October 2015 marks the 30th anniversary of the murder of PC Keith Blakelock during rioting on the Broadwater Farm Estate, Tottenham, against a backdrop of unrest in major UK cities and nadir in relations between police and black communities. After becoming detached from Serial 502 Keith Blakelock was kicked and hacked to death by a mob using clubs, iron bars, knives and a machete or similar weapon. His killers have never been brought to justice. This minutely researched book from former Metropolitan Police commander Tony Moore is based on new materials, private communications and matchless sources. It looks at both sides of the story of a breakdown in law and order at this ‘symbolic location’, its history, background, influences, causes and who was most to blame. Tony Moore’s book examines the stark policing choices and dilemmas as well as the 350 arrests of mainly black people, the wall of silence, fear, trials, appeals and campaign for the release of Winston Silcott, Engin Raghip and Mark Braithwaite (The Tottenham Three) and later jury acquittal of Nicky Jacobs. It looks at the calamitous legacy, questionable strategies and the acquittal of two members of the Met’s CID charged with perverting the course of justice. From petrol bombs, burning barricades and unfathomable violence to the backdrop of immigration, recriminations and lessons of hindsight, this is a powerful book that should be read by anyone concerned with police community relations.

A Victim of Hate by Harold E. Morgan Book Resume:

Gone in the blink of an eye-Mike Moyer's whole family-mother, father, brother and sister. How can he face this devastating loss while trying to care for the dairy farm and land by himself? To add insult to injury, Ralph thinks he can now take possession of Mike's land, now that the Moyers are gone. Why not? His father should have had it in the Oklahoma Land Run anyway. Ralph's grudge and hatred puts Mike in prison. In turn, Mike hates God and believes he is God's trash. Only Mary, Mike's cousin, can console him--his only love. They'd even kissed a few times . . . but she is his cousin. How can anything good come from this? Not just another feel-good novel, it depicts the downward spiral of hatred--holding grudges and bittnerness--and God's grace that can reverse it, in the blink of an eye. Comments about A Victim of Hate .Characterization is strong. I could see and feel the emotions of Mike and Mary, struggle with them through prison, and desire a happy ending. .Your Kansas voice carried throughout, describing the dialect of the Midwestern area without using hokey phrases or downgrading our people. Dialogue is especially strong. .Ralph was the perfect villain, nasty, yet human; I liked how you softened his character toward the end. .If I read this book while in prison, I know I would leave with hope and knowledge of a trade. Harold E. Morgan, a graduate of Oklahoma Baptist University, established and pastored churches in Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri for thirty-two years. He has had devotionals and articles published in "Preacher's Magazine," "The Secret Place" and "Advance." His wife, Lila, is also a published author, and has had a newspaper column in Pratt, Kansas, where they live. They have four children, twelve grandchildren, and eleven great-grandchildren.

The Activist's Handbook by Randy Shaw Book Resume:

In this thoroughly revised and updated edition of The Activist's Handbook, Randy Shaw’s hard-hitting guide to winning social change, the author brings the strategic and tactical guidance of the prior edition into the age of Obama. Shaw details how activists can best use the Internet and social media, and analyzes the strategic strengths and weaknesses of rising 21st century movements for immigrant rights, marriage equality, and against climate change. Shaw also highlights increased student activism towards fostering greater social justice in the 21st century. The Activist's Handbook: Winning Social Change in the 21st Century details the impact of specific strategies on campaigns across the country, from Occupy Wall Street to battles over sweatshops, the environment, AIDS policies, education reform, homelessness, and more: How should activists use new media tools to expose issues and mobilize grassroots support? When should activists form coalitions, and with whom? How are students—be they DREAMers seeking immigration reform or college activists battling ever-increasing tuition costs—winning major campaigns? Whether it’s by inspiring "fear and loathing" in politicians, building diverse coalitions, using ballot initiatives, or harnessing the media, the courts, and the electoral process towards social change, Shaw—a longtime activist for urban issues—shows that with a plan, positive change can be achieved. In showing how people can win social change struggles against even overwhelming odds, The Activist's Handbook is an indispensable guide not only for activists, but for anyone interested in the future of progressive politics in America.

Social media homicide confessions by Yardley, Elizabeth Book Resume:

The relationship between crime and social media has become an increasingly important topic in a networked world. However, the use of social media in relation to violent crime is little understood. This unique book, by an expert in the field, addresses this gap by analysing what those involved in homicide do with social media. Using three international cases in which perpetrators confessed to homicide on social media, it investigates the practices of those involved, providing a groundbreaking conceptual framework of use to criminologists. It argues that such confessions convey important insights not only into the individual offender but also the social and cultural context of contemporary homicide.

Westmoreland by Lewis Sorley Book Resume:

“A terrific book, lively and brisk . . . a must read for anyone who tries to understand the Vietnam War.” —Thomas E. Ricks Is it possible that the riddle of America’s military failure in Vietnam has a one-word, one-man answer? Until we understand Gen. William Westmoreland, we will never know what went wrong in the Vietnam War. An Eagle Scout at fifteen, First Captain of his West Point class, Westmoreland fought in two wars and became Superintendent at West Point. Then he was chosen to lead the war effort in Vietnam for four crucial years. He proved a disaster. Unable to think creatively about unconventional warfare, Westmoreland chose an unavailing strategy, stuck to it in the face of all opposition, and stood accused of fudging the results when it mattered most. In this definitive portrait, prize-winning military historian Lewis Sorley makes a plausible case that the war could have been won were it not for General Westmoreland. An authoritative study offering tragic lessons crucial for the future of American leadership, Westmoreland is essential reading. “Eye-opening and sometimes maddening, Sorley’s Westmoreland is not to be missed.” —John Prados, author of Vietnam: The History of an Unwinnable War, 1945–1975

Making Time in Stanley Kubrick's Barry Lyndon by Maria Pramaggiore Book Resume:

Considered by critics to be Stanley Kubrick's masterpiece, Barry Lyndon has suffered from scholarly and popular neglect. Maria Pramaggiore argues that one key reason that this film remains unappreciated, even by Kubrick aficionados, is that its transnational and intermedial contexts have not been fully explored. Taking a novel approach, she looks at the film from a transnational perspective -- as a foreign production shot in Ireland and an adaptation of a British novel by an American director about an Irish subject. Pramaggiore argues that, in Barry Lyndon, Kubrick develops his richest philosophical mediation on cinema's capacity to mediate the real and foregrounds film's relationship to other technologies of visuality, including painting, photography, and digital media. By combining extensive research into the film's source novel, production and reception with systematic textual analysis and an engagement with several key issues in contemporary academic debate, this work promises not only to make a huge impact in the field of Kubrick studies, but also in 1970s filmmaking, cultural history and transnational film practice.

Aboriginal Child Welfare, Self-Government and the Rights of Indigenous Children by Sonia Harris-Short Book Resume:

This volume addresses the contentious and topical issue of aboriginal self-government over child welfare. Using case studies from Australia and Canada, it discusses aboriginal child welfare in historical and comparative perspectives and critically examines recent legal reforms and changes in the design, management and delivery of child welfare services aimed at securing the 'decolonization' of aboriginal children and families. Within this context, the author identifies the limitations of reconciling the conflicting demands of self-determination and sovereignty and suggests that international law can provide more nuanced and culturally sensitive solutions. Referring to the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, it is argued that the effective decolonization of aboriginal child welfare requires a journey well beyond the single issue of child welfare to the heart of the debate over self-government, self-determination and sovereignty in both national and international law.

State of Denial by Bob Woodward Book Resume:

"Insurgents and terrorists retain the resources and capabilities to sustain and even increase current level of violence through the next year." This was the secret Pentagon assessment sent to the White House in May 2006. The forecast of a more violent 2007 in Iraq contradicted the repeated optimistic statements of President Bush, including one, two days earlier, when he said we were at a "turning point" that history would mark as the time "the forces of terror began their long retreat." State of Denial examines how the Bush administration avoided telling the truth about Iraq to the public, to Congress, and often to themselves. Two days after the May report, the Pentagon told Congress, in a report required by law, that the "appeal and motivation for continued violent action will begin to wane in early 2007." In this detailed inside story of a war-torn White House, Bob Woodward reveals how White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card, with the indirect support of other high officials, tried for 18 months to get Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld replaced. The president and Vice President Cheney refused. At the beginning of Bush's second term, Stephen Hadley, who replaced Condoleezza Rice as national security adviser, gave the administration a "D minus" on implementing its policies. A SECRET report to the new Secretary of State Rice from her counselor stated that, nearly two years after the invasion, Iraq was a "failed state." State of Denial reveals that at the urging of Vice President Cheney and Rumsfeld, the most frequent outside visitor and Iraq adviser to President Bush is former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, who, haunted still by the loss in Vietnam, emerges as a hidden and potent voice. Woodward reveals that the secretary of defense himself believes that the system of coordination among departments and agencies is broken, and in a SECRET May 1, 2006, memo, Rumsfeld stated, "the current system of government makes competence next to impossible." State of Denial answers the core questions: What happened after the invasion of Iraq? Why? How does Bush make decisions and manage a war that he chose to define his presidency? And is there an achievable plan for victory? Bob Woodward's third book on President Bush is a sweeping narrative -- from the first days George W. Bush thought seriously about running for president through the recruitment of his national security team, the war in Afghanistan, the invasion and occupation of Iraq, and the struggle for political survival in the second term. After more than three decades of reporting on national security decision making -- including his two #1 national bestsellers on the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, Bush at War (2002) and Plan of Attack (2004) -- Woodward provides the fullest account, and explanation, of the road Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice and the White House staff have walked.
