October 2014

October’s roundup of History titles includes DREAMERS AND DECEIVERS, the follow-up to Glenn Beck’s national bestseller MIRACLES AND MASSACRES, in which the popular radio and television host brings 10 more true and untold stories to life; WHEN LIONS ROAR by Thomas Maier, the first comprehensive history of the deeply entwined personal and public lives of the Churchills and the Kennedys and what their “special relationship” meant for Great Britain and the United States; THE RETURN OF GEORGE WASHINGTON, in which Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Edward J. Larson recovers an almost always overlooked chapter of George Washington’s life, revealing how Washington saved the United States by coming out of retirement to lead the Constitutional Convention and serve as our first president; and Eric Lichtblau’s THE NAZI NEXT DOOR, the shocking story of how America became one of the world’s safest postwar havens for Nazis.
