When private investigator Diana Hunter inherits her Uncle Bennett's hidden fortune, she also gets his secret files and his enemies. With no knowledge of Bennett's clandestine past, Diana is bewildered when she is pursued by a shadow organization using the powers of the Patriot Act. Branded a terrorist, Diana is legally defenseless and realizes she can only save herself by uncovering Bennett's double life. She learns Bennett was in Germany in 1933, witnessed Hitler's seizure of power, saw German democracy lost and friends killed. His decision to remain there as a spy immersed him in a world of espionage that did not end with the defeat of Germany. Bennett's darkest secrets lead to a poisonous legacy that oozed out of defeated Fascism and still festers today in our country's hidden halls of power. If Diana is to survive she must use her investigative skill, her talent for disguise and a few close friends to expose a conspiracy at the highest levels of our government.

Haig S Coup


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

When General Alexander M. Haig Jr. returned to the White House on May 3, 1973, he found the Nixon administration in worse shape than he had imagined. President Richard Nixon, reelected in an overwhelming landslide just six months earlier, had accepted the resignations of his top aides—the chief of staff H. R. Haldeman and the domestic policy chief John Ehrlichman—just three days earlier. Haldeman and Ehrlichman had enforced the president’s will and protected him from his rivals and his worst instincts for four years. Without them, Nixon stood alone, backed by a staff that lacked gravitas and confidence as the Watergate scandal snowballed. Nixon needed a savior, someone who would lift his fortunes while keeping his White House from blowing apart. He hoped that savior would be his deputy national security adviser, Alexander Haig, whom he appointed chief of staff. But Haig’s goal was not to keep Nixon in office—it was to remove him. In Haig’s Coup, Ray Locker uses recently declassified documents to tell the true story of how Haig orchestrated Nixon’s demise, resignation, and subsequent pardon. A story of intrigues, cover-ups, and treachery, this incisive history shows how Haig engineered the “soft coup” that ended our long national nightmare and brought Watergate to an end.

After The Coup


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

After the Coup brings together the work of a group of leading Thai intellectuals of several generations to equip readers to anticipate and understand the developments that lie ahead for Thailand. Contributors offer findings and perspectives both on the disorienting period following the Thai coup of May 2014 and on fundamental challenges to the country and its institutions. Chapters address regionalism and decentralization, the monarchy and the military, the media, demography and the economy, the long-running violence in Southern Thailand, and a number of surprising social and political trends certain to shape the future of Thailand. The volume will serve as a valuable resource for all those concerned with that future. “This highly acclaimed collection of scholars’ answers to basic questions about the political situation after the 2014 military coup in Thailand offers a comprehensive analysis of many crucial institutions and sensitive issues that no other work has touched. The book covers the intricate relationships among conflicting classes, political movements, the military, and, above all, the monarchy. It puts on the table many important debates about the crisis of democratization in the country, including the struggle of Malay-Muslims in Southern Thailand, the transformation of electoral violence, the dilemma of political decentralization, the changing roles of the media, and the impact of slowing economic growth and an ageing society on the future of Thailand.” —Kanokrat Lertchoosakul, Chulalongkorn University, author of The Rise of the Octobrists in Contemporary Thailand “After the Coup should be read by anyone interested in understanding the current state of Thailand’s political affairs, tracing the historical origins of the current challenges and conflicts, or looking for clues about what may be to come. This outstanding set of scholars explores how Thailand’s disparate collective identities are at the root of the current political and social conflict. These collective identities carry with them different visions of what it means to be ‘Thai’, what democracy is and how it should function, and the sources of political legitimacy. The chapter authors describe how those behind Thailand’s ‘ambitious coup’ have attempted to crush, co-opt, quell, and contain these competing visions.” —Allen Hicken, University of Michigan, author of Building Party Systems in Developing Democracies “Featuring a collection of essays authored by many of the field’s leading lights, expertly curated and edited by one of the most knowledgeable scholars in Thai Studies, After the Coup is a vital contribution to the study of contemporary Thai politics. The depth and sophistication of its analysis, and the variety of viewpoints represented, make it a must-read for anyone wishing to understand the significance of the events set in motion by the military coup staged in Thailand on 22 May 2014, one in crucial respects quite unlike the series of coups d’état that punctuate the country’s modern political development.” —Federico Ferrara, City University of Hong Kong, author of The Political Development of Modern Thailand “This book covers many of the most important current aspects of the Thai political problem, to help readers better understand why Thailand continues in its struggle to democracy. For example, it provides for a very insightful sense of an emergent middle class that has been one of the main obstacles in Thai democratic progress, both before and since the military coup d’état of 2014.” —Titipol Phakdeewanich, Dean, Faculty of Political Science, Ubon Ratchathani University

Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Many people think that the massacre at Tiananmen Square was a complete victory for the communists in charge of China, but history proves that is not the case. Chan Kai Yee, who suffered through the Cultural Revolution while Mao Zedong ruled China with an iron fist, describes how elite intellectuals prepared to fight back. His profound knowledge of history and close contacts with key dissenters give him an unmatched perspective on events, which culminated with the protests in Tiananmen Square in 1989. Thousands of people died in the Tiananmen Square massacre; while the Communist Party ostensibly remained in power, their leading members start to worry.

Gradually, talented intellectuals began to mount a silent, peaceful coup d état to seize control of the country. With intellectuals running the country, China became a dominant world power that could surpass the United States. Discover how a band of intellectuals transformed a nation and the world in Tiananmen s Tremendous Achievements.
