    In The Truth about Muhammad, New York Times best-selling author and Islam expert Robert Spencer offers an honest and telling portrait of the founder of Islam -- perhaps the first such portrait in half a century -- unbounded by fear and political correctness, unflinching, and willing to face the hard facts about Muhammad's life that continue to affect our world today.

    David Ewing says: "Eye Opening"
    "Learn More"
    Overall

    Spencer’s book will make you want to learn more about early Islamic history. He does not mince harsh words about one of the world’s largest and fastest growing religions.

    In this magisterial book, Roy Jenkins' unparalleled command of the political history of Britain and his own high-level government experience combine in a narrative account of Churchill's astounding career that is unmatched in its shrewd insights, its unforgettable anecdotes, the clarity of its overarching themes, and the author's nuanced appreciation of his extraordinary subject.

    Karen says: "Best of British Political Soap Opera"
    "Takes one to Know One"
    Overall

    Great stuff about one of England’s most famous. It was a real pleasure reading another Churchill biography. And maybe that shouldn’t have not have surprised me. What else could be expected when an experienced, articulate politician writes about an experienced, articulate politican?

  • The Defining Moment: FDR's Hundred Days and the Triumph of Hope

    In this dramatic and fascinating account, Newsweek columnist Jonathan Alter shows how Franklin Delano Roosevelt used his first 100 days in office to lift the country from the despair and paralysis of the Great Depression and transform the American presidency.

    John M says: "Very Enjoyable!"
    "Making of the President"
    Overall

    Alter talks a good deal about FDR before 1933. In fact, the ‘making of the president’ portion might be the best part. As for the hundred days, I must confess a little disappointment. I had hoped for more history and less interpretation.

  • Overthrow: America's Century of Regime Change from Hawaii to Iraq

    "Regime change" did not begin with the administration of George W. Bush, but has been an integral part of U.S. foreign policy for more than one hundred years. Starting with the overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy in 1893 and continuing through the Spanish-American War and the Cold War and into our own time, the United States has not hesitated to overthrow governments that stood in the way of its political and economic goals.

    Nelson Alexander says: "What Every President Should Know"
    "Brings It Together"
    Overall

    Not too much new history hiding here. But the skill with which Kinzer weaves it all together makes for a great read.
