    In the early 1970s, Katharine Graham was one of the most powerful women on earth. As the publisher of the Washington Post, she published the Pentagon Papers, which shed light on the darkest corners of the war in Vietnam, and she oversaw the investigation into Watergate that would bring down President Richard Nixon. Her story is one of the greatest triumphs in the history of American journalism, but she may have had a secret ally: the Central Intelligence Agency. In this stunning biography, veteran reporter Deborah Davis unearths the truth about the Washington Post and the family that ran it.

    In 1901, President Theodore Roosevelt invited Booker T. Washington to have dinner at the executive mansion with the First Family. The next morning, news that the president had dined with a black man-and former slave-sent shock waves through the nation. Although African Americans had helped build the White House and had worked for most of the presidents, not a single one had ever been invited to dine there. Fueled by inflammatory newspaper articles, political cartoons, and even vulgar songs, the scandal escalated.

    How is suffering, either of personal or historical significance, measured? How does one move beyond the desire for vengeance? These questions are complicated by historical record; how did events really unfold? For Israelis and Palestinians, one land has two histories, and which version you accept depends on who you are. Tragedy is still fresh in the memories of both sides, complicating the peace process.
