by David Talbot • Hardcover • October 2015 • 620 pages
From the founder of Salon and the author of the New York Times bestseller Brothers, an explosive, headline-making portrait of Allen Dulles, the man who transformed the CIA into the most powerful—and secretive—colossus in Washington.

Ted Gottfried • 136 pages • 2006
Reinforced sturdy library binding • A book to donate to your local elementary, middle, high school or public library, in this era of tight budgets for public education. Reading level: Grade 7; Interest range: Grades 5 - 12.
There is no other book specifically on this subject avaiable for young and teen readers.
"A readable, engaging resource for reports that will also appeal to general readers." – Starred, Booklist
• "A well-organized, well-documented resource." – School Library Journal
Throughout U.S. history. antiwar activists have gathered and lobbied to prevent armed conflict. Often their work put them at odds with the majority population. Sometimes their antiwar positions gave their opponents reason to question the activist' loyalty to the U.S.
THE FIGHT FOR PEACE traces the work of antiwar activists from the Revoluionary War (1776-1783) to the conflict in Iraq in the 2000's. This book shines light on the U.S. peace movements and organizations that developed in the 1800's, as well as the international pacifist groups that bucked the majority in the 1900's. No other books present this history (besides Howard Zinn's classic 1980 "A People's History of the United States") The book also gives voice to those who argue that some causes are worth fighting for. In so doing, The Fight For Peace makes us face the ongoing tension between those who fight wars and those who fight to preserve peace.

Book: National Security & Double Government
$30.00 $22.50 On Sale!
by Michael Glennon • Oxford University Press • 272 pages • Hard cover • 2015
• "This work is of huge importance. It explains the phenomenon that myself and many other informed voters have seen - namely - how the policies of the United States government seem impervious to change no matter the flavor of administration. I found myself baffled and chagrined that President Obama, who I cheerfully voted for twice (and still would prefer over the alternatives) failed to end many of the practices that I abhor, such as the free reign of the NSA, the continual increase in defense budgets and the willingness to keep laws that are clearly against the wishes of the vast majority of Americans, be they Progressives or otherwise." – Tom Hunter

$17.00 $12.75 On Sale!

by Kathleen Krull. Illustrated by Yuyi Morales. Hardcover.

Cesar Chavez is known as one of America's greatest civil rights leaders. When he led a 340-mile peaceful protest march through California, he ignited a cause and improved the lives of thousands of migrant farmworkers. But Cesar wasn't always a leader. As a boy, he was shy and teased at school. His family slaved in the fields for barely enough money to survive.

Cesar knew things had to change, and he thought that--maybe--he could help change them. So he took charge. He spoke up. And an entire country listened.

This beautifully illustrated book is recommended for ages 6-9

BK-PH

by Howard Zinn • 729 pages • Paperback • Revised & updated (2014)

"[Howard Zinn's A People’s History] made me feel that I was a player in this moment in history, as we all are... It gave me a sense of myself in the context of this huge American experience and empowered me to feel that in my small way, I had something to say, I could do something.”
– Bruce Springsteen"

Zinn has written a brilliant and moving history of the American people from the point of view of those who have been exploited politically and economically and whose plights has been largely omitted from most histories. Extending its coverage...the book is an excellent antidote to established history. Seldom have quotations been so effectively used; the stories of blacks, women, Indians, and poor laborers of all nationalities are told in their own words. While the book is precise enough th please specialists it should satisfy any adult reader." Library Journal If your last serious read of American history was in high school - or even in a standard college course - you'll want to read this amazing account of America as seen throuigh the eyes of its working people, women and minorities.

Book: The Spitting Image
$22.00 $16.50 On Sale!
BK-SI
Myth, Memory, and the Legacy of Vietnam. By Jerry Lembcke. 216 pages.

"The image is ingrained: A Vietnam veteran, arriving home from the war, gets off a plane only to be greeted by an angry mob of antiwar protesters yelling, 'Murderer!' and 'Baby killer!' Then out of the crowd comes someone who spits in the veteran's face. The only problem, according to Jerry Lembcke, is that no such incident ever has been documented. It is instead, says Lembcke, a kind of urban myth that reflects our lingering national confusion over the war." --Los Angeles Times

Lembcke builds a compelling case against collective memory by demonstrating that rememberances of Vietnam were almost at direct odds with circumstantial evidence." --San Francisco Chronicle

"The myth of the spat-upon veteran is not only bad history, but it has been instrumental in selling the American public on bad policy." --Maurice Isserman, Chicago Tribune

Book: Saving Fish from Drowning
$22.00 $16.50 On Sale!
BK-SFD
by Amy Tan.
"Each day I pledge to save a hundred lives. I drop my net in the lake and scoop out a hundred fishes. I place the fishes on the bank, where they flop and twirl. 'Don't be scared,' I tell those fishes. 'I am saving you from drowning." Soon enough, the fishes grow calm and lie still. Yet, sad to say, I am always too late." Amy Tan's novel of 11 Americans stranded in Burma possesses the resonance of the fable of the Burmese fisherman. Another compelling fiction by the author of The Joy Luck Club and The Bonesetter's Daughter.

On an ill-fated art expedition into the southern Shan state of Burma, eleven Americans leave their Floating Island Resort for a Christmas-morning tour-and disappear. Through twists of fate, curses, and just plain human error, they find themselves deep in the jungle, where they encounter a tribe awaiting the return of the leader and the mythical book of wisdom that will protect them from the ravages and destruction of the Myanmar military regime.

Saving Fish from Drowning seduces the reader with a facade of Buddhist illusions, magician's tricks, and light comedy, even as the absurd and picaresque spiral into a gripping morality tale about the consequences of intentions – both good and bad – and about the shared responsibility that individuals must accept for the actions of others.

Book: Teacher Man
$26.00 $16.00 On Sale!
BK-TM
by Frank McCourt

In Teacher Man Frank turns his attention to the subject that he most often talks about in his lectures-teaching: why it's so important, why it's so undervalued. He describes his own coming of age-as a teacher, a storyteller, and, ultimately, a writer. He is alternately humble and mischievous, downtrodden and rebellious. He instinctively identifies with the underdog; his sympathies lie more with students than administrators. It takes him almost fifteen years to find his voice in the classroom, but what's clear in the thrilling pages of Teacher Man is that from the beginning he seizes and holds his students' attention by telling them memorable stories. And then it takes him another fifteen years to find his voice on the page.

With all the wit, charm, irreverence, and poignancy that made Angela's Ashes and 'Tis so universally beloved, Frank McCourt tells his most exhilarating story yet-how he became a writer.

BK-CIC
by Charles Hardy • 145 pages • Curbstone Press, Willimantic, CT

"An old and evil way of life is dying and those who enjoyed it are fighting to survive..."

• "Charles Hardy has given us a unique persective on the Chavista revolution as viewed from a cardboard shack on a hillside barrio in Caracas. Writing in a graceful and conversational style in a series of vignettes, Hardy conveys with genuine affection and admiration the dignity and courage of the ordinary people of Venezuela – people whom the western media, enscounced in fine hotels or toney apartments, only know as maids and waiters. A reader comes away understanding both why Hugo Chavez is loved by these people – and why the U.S. government is trying so hard to oust him. With the Bush administration still trying to demonize Chavez and his backers, this book is a must-read for all Ameicans – but a must-read that you won't be able to put down." – Dave Lindorff, columnist for Counterpunch, Salon.com and author of The Case For Impeachment (2006)

by General Smedley Butler • 80 pages
This is the anti-war classic of all time. Written over seventy years ago by General Smedley Butler, who is still the most highly-decorated U.S. Marine in American history, This frank book shows how U.S. war efforts are animated and driven by big business interests, then as today. This extraordinary argument against war is more relevant today than ever. It remains the basic primer for all to read. Concisely tells the true story of his personal exoeriences as a soldier prtecting U.S. business interests in other countries. Coming as it does from the perspective of a brave and highly honored warrior, he is a source whom pro-military, pro-war readers will at least read, and may even find themselves agreeing with. A powerful, timeless document. Marine enlistees are taught about the history of the Marine Corps, and about Smedley Butler as a heroic U.S. Marine, but they don't teach about his personal conversion to opposition to war for corporate profit.

John Perkins has seen the signs of today's economic meltdown before.

In his former life as an economic hit man, he was on the front lines both as an observer and a perpetrator of events, once confined only to the third world, that have now sent the United States—and in fact the entire planet—spiraling toward disaster.

George W. Bush released his autobiography to massive media attention in 2010. He's promoting his own mythology, re-writing the history of the eight years of his regime, to put his legacy in the best light, in spite of his massive unpopularity.
Meanwhile, another groundbreaking book that reveals much more about the Bush family also was published in 2010, to virtually no media coverage.
Learn why the conventional understanding of Watergate gets the story wrong. Discover how Nixon was implicated in a sprawling plot to which he was not a party, and how an aggressive effort was mounted to use the ‘facts’ of the case to force him from office. Read new revelations about the precise involvement of George Herbert Walker Bush (senior), Bob Woodward and White House counsel John Dean in this still-mysterious American epic from 1972.
Also learn:
• Why George H.W. Bush can’t remember where he was on November 22, 1963. Every other adult in the country remembers they were that fateful day.
• about a Texas Russian immigrant, George DeMorehschildt, who oddly is personally acquainted with both George H.W. Bush AND Lee Harvey Oswald. He died of an apparemt self-inflicted gunshot wound the day before he was to testify before the House SelectCommittee on Assassinations in 1977. • Why FBI Director J.Edhar Hoover, in 1963, refers in an FBI memo to "George Bush of the CIA" - two decades before George H.W. Bush claims he began his first affiliation with the Agency when he was appointed as Director for one year. • Why oilman George H.W. Bush shows up in early CIA documents
• The real story behind George W. Bush’s missing military service
• The inside scoop on the Bushes and Saudi influence in America
• The strange saga of Harvard University and its endowment
• The untold real story behind George W. Bush’s religious awakening

• Why Barack Obama and his supporters should read this book

Book: The Design of Dissent

by Milton Glaser & Mirko Ilic • forward by Tony Kushner • 11" x 9" • 240 pages
With a vibrant display of buttons, posters and leaflets that protest the Iraq war, the corporate media, the Israeli military and all points between, this book cuts a wide swath, indeed. Assembled by designer Glaser, best known for his " I [heart] NY" logo, and Ilic, a School of Visual Arts instructor and author of several books on design, the book bursts with compelling political designs from all over the world, but it lacks an overall direction and shape. Neither a deeply snoozeriffic foreword by playwright Tony Kushner nor a rambling interview of Glaser by the New York Times' Steven Heller give any clear indication of the books' overall purpose. Not that there aren't images here to make the skin crawl and the blood boil, including a photo montage of victims processed at a Khmer Rouge extermination facility, and silverware superimposed on either side of a cow collapsed in meat factory filth. The most fascinating section of the book focuses on conflicts in the former Yugoslavia, bringing the region's brutal recent history to life with a shocking immediacy and quiet rage. However, despite the book's striking and colorful individual parts, it comes across as a loosely organized compendium of leftist protest paraphernalia.

Originally published as the 2007 annual desk appointment calendar with the theme of anti-war films, with the calendar pages removed, it is a 72-page reference guide to anti-war films made since the previous "Films For Peace & Justice" (1987) desk calendar and film guide.
From Director John Sayles' Foreword:
"Movies, since their inception, have been a vital part of the cultural conversation. Some of the earliest "'moving pictures' with stories were battle scenes of the Philippine-American War presented by Thomas Edison's Biograph Company. That the footage had been staged in New Jersey with African-Americans standing in as Filipino soldiers was apparently less important to audiences of the day than the novelty, action, and patriotic fervor displayed within these one-minute 'views.'
