    In 1521 the Catholic Church was hunting for Martin Luther. Angered by the Christian reformer's unapologetic criticisms of the Church, the Holy Roman emperor had called for him "to be apprehended and punished as a notorious heretic". Knowing that inquisitors would murder the monk and crush his fragile movement if they caught him, Luther's followers spirited him away to Wartburg Castle in central Germany.

    In The Conviction of Richard Nixon, Reston provides a fascinating, fly-on-the-wall account of his involvement in the Nixon interviews as David Frost's Watergate adviser. Written in 1977 immediately following those celebrated television interviews and published now for the first time, The Conviction of Richard Nixon explains how a British journalist of waning consequence drove the famously wily and formidable Richard Nixon to say, in an apparent personal epiphany, "I have impeached myself."

    A Rift in the Earth tells the remarkable story of the ferocious "art war" that raged between 1979 and 1984 over what kind of memorial should be built to honor the men and women who died in the Vietnam War. The story intertwines art, politics, historical memory, patriotism, racism, and a fascinating set of characters, from those who fought in the conflict and those who resisted it to politicians at the highest level.
