The Golden Door by Book Resume:

Rye has lived all his life in the walled city of Weld, and every year he and his family (his mother and two older brothers) have endured the terrifying attacks of the winged Skimmers with their taste for human meat. But the attacks are growing worse, the Warden seems indecisive and his brothers speak of the need for change—maybe even rebellion. When the Warden calls for Volunteers to find and destroy the enemy who sends the Skimmers to destroy Weld's populace, red-headed Rye and his widowed mother watch in silence when first bold Dirk then subtle Sholto go forth into the unknown. They do not return and Rye realizes that to save his family, if not his city, he must go in search of his brothers. Young, unskilled, innocent and sensitive, Rye is motivated not by the desire for fame or glory but the desperate need to ease his mother's grief—and his own.

Guarding the Golden Door by Roger Daniels Book Resume:

As renowned historian Roger Daniels shows in this brilliant new work, America's inconsistent, often illogical, and always cumbersome immigration policy has profoundly affected our recent past. The federal government's efforts to pick and choose among the multitude of immigrants seeking to enter the United States began with the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882. Conceived in ignorance and falsely presented to the public, it had undreamt of consequences, and this pattern has been rarely deviated from since. Immigration policy in Daniels' skilled hands shows Americans at their best and worst, from the nativist violence that forced Theodore Roosevelt's 1907 "gentlemen's agreement" with Japan to the generous refugee policies adopted after World War Two and throughout the Cold War. And in a conclusion drawn from today's headlines, Daniels makes clear how far ignorance, partisan politics, and unintended consequences have overtaken immigration policy during the current administration's War on Terror. Irreverent, deeply informed, and authoritative, Guarding the Golden Door presents an unforgettable interpretation of modern American history.

The Golden Door by Robert T. Floyd Jr. Book Resume:

Writing about one’s own life is not a simple task. It consumes years and years of research in addition to the recalling of experiences, many of which are unsettling. I began with an incident regarding a position applied for along with a co-worker who was like myself, a former Philadelphia police officer. How, I asked, can deference fail to exist in the arena of public service? Over the years, I have come to see that not only I have experienced these mishaps, but there are untold others, too numerous to mention. I just happen to be of African-American ancestry. This book is for them. It’s for the soldiers and airmen I served with in Vietnam, indeed it is for generations of Americans yet unborn. There is always a struggle between good and evil. Plato describes it as a two-headed horse, each wanting to go in opposite directions. In law-enforcement this arises when innocence crosses the path of corruption. In the final analysis this is to let us not forget those who tried to serve.

The Golden Door by Dresden Reese Book Resume:

The author graduated with Honors from Loyola University of Chicago. She now resides in northern California, enjoys two lovely daughters and a multifaceted career as an artist/designer, educator and mentor. I write to entertain and educate (mainly myself after a tragic accident). Words entertain me and conjure up pictures without ever uttering sound. The accident gave me time to write on an old computer donated by the editor of a local newspaper, and that is another story . . . . . . . . . In 2006, the world silently celebrated the 50th anniversary of a rebellion gone awry. It wasnt just kids games fought with sticks and stones against Soviet tanks, it was bigger than that, it was Hungarys passion for life, joy and vivre that erupted on that day, the 23rd of October, 1956. The media barely gave the event fi ve minutes notice. James Michener captured the saga in his book, Bridge at Andau. Without Micheners documentation and independent research, I would probably have dismissed this story as fi ction. At the end, the matron who shared her plight and joy with me brought out a leather bound photo album fi lled with post cards Olgi mailed from the free world to her mother behind the Iron Curtain. Those dates, the pictures and words authenticate whats written. The story documents the Cold War era, as well as contrasts Soviet Communism with Americas democratic ideals. As one of my critics, one of my students, puts it, the story teaches us to be thankful. The Golden Door is truly a love story, the love of a man and a woman and their passion for freedom.

Beyond the Golden Door by Ali Master Book Resume:

Beyond the Golden Door is the compelling, sometimes tense, and often humorous story of how a Pakistani Muslim finds freedom, love, and a new faith while challenging readers to appreciate the liberties found in America and to consider their own spiritual journey. It’s easy to talk about freedom. But unless someone has lived in a world that suffocates freedom, it’s difficult to appreciate the liberty found in America. Beyond the Golden Door is the engaging true story of Ali Master, a Pakistani Muslim who immigrates to the United States to attend college and discovers five transformational freedoms along the way: the freedom to fail and start over, to love, to choose one’s faith, to be an entrepreneur, and to self-govern. These American freedoms are shown in stark contrast to the life Ali lived in a developing Muslim country and he asks the question: what are the roots of these precious American freedoms? Ultimately, readers discover that this tale is about God, the true source of liberty, and how He works in people’s lives to bring about unexpected and undeserved redemption. Beyond the Golden Door encourages Americans to consider how they can preserve their precious freedoms and contribute to their country’s legacy, as well as the deeper challenge of considering their own life journey. A call to value and preserve American freedoms, Beyond the Golden Door extends an invitation for readers to consider ultimate freedom in Jesus Christ.

Beside the Golden Door: U.S. Immigration Reform in a New Era of Globalization proposes a radical overhaul of current immigration policy designed to strengthen economic competitiveness and long-run growth. Pia M. Orrenius and Madeline Zavodny outline a plan that favors employment-based immigration over family reunification, making work-based visas the rule, not the exception. They argue that immigration policy should favor high-skilled workers while retaining avenues for low-skilled immigration; family reunification should be limited to spouses and minor children; provisional visas should be the norm; and quotas that lead to queuing must be eliminated.

Today, however, punishing rents and the increasingly prohibitive cost of ownership have turned housing into the foremost symbol of inequality and an economy gone wrong. Nowhere is this more visible than in the San Francisco Bay Area, where fleets of private buses ferry software engineers past the tarp-and-plywood shanties of the homeless. The adage that California is a glimpse of the nation’s future has become a cautionary tale. With propulsive storytelling and ground-level reporting, New York Times journalist Conor Dougherty chronicles America’s housing crisis from its West Coast epicenter, peeling back the decades of history and economic forces that brought us here and taking readers inside the activist movements that have risen in tandem with housing costs.

New Guardians for the Golden Gate by Amy Meyer Book Resume:

National parks are a distinctively American idea. But it takes people to make them happen. This unique, insider's account tells how Bay Area activists forged bipartisan local and national support for an unprecedented campaign to create a great new national park. In 1970, beginning with the former Army lands originally reserved to protect San Francisco Bay, the grassroots People for a Golden Gate National Recreation Area succeeded in preserving all of the spectacular land that frames the Golden Gate. Spanning more than thirty eventful years, Amy Meyer tells the story of how dedicated citizens, including visionary conservationist Edgar Wayburn, master politician Phillip Burton, and a battalion of lesser-known but key allies made our democratic system work for the common good and won their fight to save these dramatic and historic lands for all of the American people. Pictures by noted California photographers capture the park’s grandeur and new activities. New Guardians for the Golden Gate tells how a bold vision, dedicated citizens, and a variety of old and new conservation strategies saved these magnificent lands for all time.

Americans at the Gate by Carl J. Bon Tempo Book Resume:

Unlike the 1930s, when the United States tragically failed to open its doors to Europeans fleeing Nazism, the country admitted over three million refugees during the Cold War. This dramatic reversal gave rise to intense political and cultural battles, pitting refugee advocates against determined opponents who at times successfully slowed admissions. The first comprehensive historical exploration of American refugee affairs from the midcentury to the present, Americans at the Gate explores the reasons behind the remarkable changes to American refugee policy, laws, and programs. Carl Bon Tempo looks at the Hungarian, Cuban, and Indochinese refugee crises, and he examines major pieces of legislation, including the Refugee Relief Act and the 1980 Refugee Act. He argues that the American commitment to refugees in the post-1945 era occurred not just because of foreign policy imperatives during the Cold War, but also because of particular domestic developments within the United States such as the Red Scare, the Civil Rights Movement, the rise of the Right, and partisan electoral politics. Using a wide variety of sources and documents, Americans at the Gate considers policy and law developments in connection with the organization and administration of refugee programs.

The haunting true story of the elusive serial rapist turned murderer who terrorized California during the 70s and 80s, and of the gifted journalist who died tragically while investigating the case—which was solved in April 2018. Introduction by Gillian Flynn • Afterword by Patton Oswalt “A brilliant genre-buster.... Propulsive, can’t-stop-now reading.” —Stephen King For more than ten years, a mysterious and violent predator committed fifty sexual assaults in Northern California before moving south, where he perpetrated ten sadistic murders. Then he disappeared, eluding capture by multiple police forces and some of the best detectives in the area. Three decades later, Michelle McNamara, a true crime journalist who created the popular website TrueCrimeDiary.com, was determined to find the violent psychopath she called "the Golden State Killer." Michelle pored over police reports, interviewed victims, and embedded herself in the online communities that were as obsessed with the case as she was. I’ll Be Gone in the Dark—the masterpiece McNamara was writing at the time of her sudden death—offers an atmospheric snapshot of a moment in American history and a chilling account of a criminal mastermind and the wreckage he left behind. It is also a portrait of a woman’s obsession and her unflagging pursuit of the truth. Utterly original and compelling, it has been hailed as a modern true crime classic—one which fulfilled Michelle's dream: helping unmask the Golden State Killer.

In his longing for truth and liberty, Smith begins a secret love affair with a fellow-worker Julia, but soon discovers the true price of freedom is betrayal. George Orwell's dystopian masterpiece, Nineteen Eighty-Four is perhaps the most pervasively influential book of the twentieth century.

ANTHEM by Ayn Rand Book Resume:

Hailed by The New York Times as "a compelling dystopian look at paranoia from one of the most unique and perceptive writers of our time," this brief, captivating novel offers a cautionary tale. The story unfolds within a society in which all traces of individualism have been eliminated from every aspect of life — use of the word "I" is a capital offense. The hero, a rebel who discovers that man's greatest moral duty is the pursuit of his own happiness, embodies the values the author embraced in her personal philosophy of objectivism: reason, ethics, volition, and individualism. Anthem anticipates the themes Ayn Rand explored in her later masterpieces, The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged. Publisher's Weekly acclaimed it as "a diamond in the rough, often dwarfed by the superstar company it keeps with the author's more popular work, but every bit as gripping, daring, and powerful." Anthem is a dystopian fiction novella by Ayn Rand, written in 1937 and first published in 1938 in England. It takes place at some unspecified future date when mankind has entered another dark age characterized by irrationality, collectivism, and socialistic thinking and economics. Technological advancement is now carefully planned (when it is allowed to occur at all) and the concept of individuality has been eliminated.

Rockin' On The Rideau by Jim Hurcomb Book Resume:

The music world exploded into Technicolor on February 9, 1964, when the Beatles appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show and ignited the music phenomenon dubbed “The British Invasion”. In the weeks and months to come, hundreds, perhaps thousands, of Ottawa teenagers put away their hockey sticks and picked up guitars, starting up bands in basements and garages, with visions of screaming girls and stardom dancing in their heads. For some, that dream came true, in packed High School Gymnasiums, Church basements, bowling alleys and every other venue they could find. Groups were working three or four nights a week on both sides of the Ottawa River. The Esquires, The Staccatos, The Townsmen, Don Norman and the Other Four and many others cut records that were as good as anything coming out of Britain or the States. DJ's Gord Atkinson, Nelson Davis and Al "Pussycat" Pascal make them stars by playing their records. Sandy Gardiner followed their exploits in his weekly "teen" column in the Ottawa Journal, and we checked out the weekly "Swing Set" to get the lowdown on the newest groups. From the day Elvis Presley came to town in 1957, to the release of The Five Man Electrical Band’s mega-hit “Signs”, we relive those memories with the bands, the clubs, the concerts and the colorful cast of characters who made it happen. Pull back the curtain on the magic of "Ottawa’s Golden Age of Rock and Roll”,

The Golden House by Salman Rushdie Book Resume:

One of the truly great writers of the century reaches beyond the very top of his game in this uncannily timely knockout of a novel. In quality and compelling scope, this is Rushdie's The Godfather meets The Great Gatsby--an unparalleled modern-day American thriller, with wonderful, moving characters and a grippingly entertaining story straight out of today's headlines, set against the panorama of American culture and politics from the inauguration of Obama to post-election Trump. When powerful real-estate tycoon Nero Golden immigrates to the States under mysterious circumstances, he and his three adult children assume new identities, reinventing themselves as emperors living in a lavish house in downtown Manhattan. Arriving shortly after the inauguration of Barack Obama, he and his sons, each extraordinary in his own right, quickly establish themselves at the apex of New York society, even as Nero Golden continues to raise huge buildings carrying his name in gold letters. The story of the powerful Golden family is told from the point of view of their Manhattanite neighbour and confidant, René, an aspiring filmmaker who finds in the Goldens the perfect subject. René chronicles the undoing of the house of Golden: the high life of money, of art and fashion, a sibling quarrel, an unexpected metamorphosis, the arrival of a beautiful former model, betrayal and murder, and far away, in their abandoned homeland, some decent intelligence work that could ruin Nero Golden forever. Invoking literature, pop culture and the cinema, Rushdie spins the story of the American zeitgeist over the last eight years, hitting every beat: the rise of the birther movement, the Tea Party, and identity politics; Gamergate; the backlash against political correctness; the ascendancy of Superman and Batwoman and the superhero movie; and, of course, the insurgence of a ruthlessly ambitious, narcissistic villain with painted skin and coloured hair.

Magpie by Elizabeth Day Book Resume:

She has almost everything. The rest she’ll take. For fans of Gone Girl and The Perfect Nanny, a taut, psychological suspense novel about a perfect couple and their seemingly perfect roommate—that is until she threatens to destroy everything they’ve worked so hard to create. Marisa and Jake are a perfect couple. And Kate, their new lodger, is the perfect roommate—and not just because her rent payments will give them the income they need to start trying for the baby of their dreams. Except—no one is truly perfect. Sure, Kate doesn’t seem to care much about personal boundaries and can occasionally seem overly-familiar with Jake. But Marisa doesn’t let it concern her, knowing that soon Kate will be gone, and it will just be her, Jake, and their future baby. Conceiving a baby is easier said than done, though, and Jake and Marisa’s perfect relationship is put to the test through months of fertility treatments and false starts. To make matters worse, Kate’s boundary-pushing turns into an all-out obsession—with Jake, with Marisa, and with their future child. Who is this woman? Why does she seem to know everything about Marisa and Jake? In her quest to find out who Kate really is, Marisa might destroy everything she’s worked so hard to create—her perfect romance, her perfect family, and her perfect self. Jake doesn’t know the half of what Marisa has created—and what she stands to lose. For fans of Gone Girl and The Perfect Nanny, Magpie is a tense and twisting novel about mothers and children, envy and possession, and the dangers of getting everything you’ve ever dreamed of.

The Golden Gate Is Red by Jim Kohlberg Book Resume:

Inspired by the murder of millionaire financier and banker Ted Ammon: A tax investigator races against time to save the love of his life—and the man who stole her from him Every tax cheat needs a lawyer, and every lawyer needs an investigator like Max Smoller. Max knows the tax code’s intricacies better than Uncle Sam himself, and lawyers pay handsomely for him to dig up their clients’ dirt, ensuring that no nasty surprises come out during trial. After years in the business, Smoller knows that every crook tells the same story—a tale forged by self-pity and unwavering greed. But he never thought he would hear that story from his former business partner Joe Dempsey. Even at the start of their once-promising partnership, Smoller knew Dempsey’s brilliance would eventually catapult his friend toward success beyond their shabby office on San Francisco’s Telegraph Hill. But Smoller never expected his lover, Christina Lawson, to follow Dempsey out the door. Years after the betrayal, Lawson and Dempsey are separated, and the IRS is nipping at their heels. With prosecution, bankruptcy, and prison on the horizon, it’s up to Smoller to save his former partner and the only woman he ever loved—before it’s too late. The Golden Gate Is Red is a riveting tale of avarice and betrayal, set against a vivid San Francisco backdrop.

To America with Love by A.A. Gill Book Resume:

A celebrated British provocateur and Vanity Fair columnist serves up an “immensely entertaining book inspired by his love and knowledge of America” (Sunday Times, London). IN TO AMERICA WITH LOVE, celebrated British provocateur and Vanity Fair colum­nist A. A. Gill traverses the Atlantic to become the freshest chronicler of American identity in recent memory. With a fiery temper, a sharp-tongued wit, and an insatiable curiosity to figure out what makes more than 300 million of the world’s population tick, Gill traces the history and logic of our nation’s habits, collecting wild stories and startling facts along the way. From Colorado, where he meets a local vegeta­tion expert and learns which flowers were in Poca­hontas’s nuptial bouquet, to Kentucky, where he visits the Creationist Museum and drinks moonshine with a hog farmer, and to Harlem, where he misses a turn and stumbles into the wrong barbershop for a once-in-a-lifetime haircut, Gill embarks on a tour of not only the nation’s landscape but also its psyche, playing adventurer, philosopher, statistician, and raconteur all at once. In inimitable fashion he explains why pressing a button in a Manhattan elevator means entering a social contract of American etiquette and inverting conventional hierarchies of space; why browsing through Playboy centerfolds becomes the perfect litmus test for a generation’s political views; and how Hollywood is the metaphysical marketplace for movies, the place where Americans are sold on American romance and taught how to dream the American dream. Weaving together a tapestry of historical erudition and outrageous anecdotes, Gill ultimately captures the scope and spirit of a nation that started off as a conceptual experiment and became a political, sci­entific, and cultural fortress. This humorous and revelatory book shows us why we are who we are by transforming ordinary experiences into extraordinary lessons and promising to never let us look in the mirror the same way again.

Shadow Code by Fei Tenglieyan Book Resume:

"If you build a plane world that belongs to the ant, then if you add vertically, build our three-dimensional world, and continue to add time, will there be true multidimensional space, and when one day your dream happens in reality the next day, will it be a real movement in another space, only our time has been displaced?" If we had such a code, we could walk into the space created by the shadow elements. Do you believe it? Is it possible that we have never understood the earth on which we live, that we are only a tiny species living on the skin of an apple, and that there is such a mysterious world in the apple core that we do not know about? "If you come with a hasty heart, give your heart a moment of patience, and follow me into a mysterious but not necessarily false world, where I may sink with you into another world and be lost!"

The State and the Stork by Derek S. Hoff Book Resume:

“A powerful model of how to understand the complex array of issues that will shape the political economy of population in the future.”—American Historical Review From the founders’ fears that crowded cities would produce corruption, luxury, and vice to the zero population growth movement of the late 1960s to today’s widespread fears of an aging crisis as the Baby Boomers retire, the American population debate has always concerned much more than racial composition or resource exhaustion, the aspects of the debate usually emphasized by historians. In The State and the Stork, Derek Hoff draws on his extraordinary knowledge of the intersections between population and economic debates throughout American history to explain the many surprising ways that population anxieties have provoked unexpected policies and political developments—including the recent conservative revival. At once a fascinating history and a revelatory look at the deep origins of a crucial national conversation, The State and the Stork could not be timelier. “Hoff has done a real service by bringing to the foreground the economic dimension of U.S. debates over population size and growth, a topic that has been relegated to the shadows for too long.”—Population and Development Review “After decades of failed efforts by the scientific community to alert the public to the environmental dangers of population growth and overpopulation, a first-rate historian has finally detailed both the arguments and their policy implications . . . Everyone interested in population should read The State and the Stork. This is an incredibly timely book.”—Paul R. Ehrlich, author of The Population Bomb
