1 Killing Kennedy - Bill O'Reilly & Martin Dugard
Auteur : Bill O'Reilly & Martin Dugard
Genre : United States
A riveting historical narrative of the shocking events surrounding the assassination of John F. Kennedy, and the follow-up to mega-bestselling author Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln

More than a million readers have thrilled to Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln, the page-turning work of nonfiction about the shocking assassination that changed the course of American history.

2 The 9/11 Commission Report: Final Report of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States (Authorized Edition) - National Commission on Terrorist Attacks
Auteur : National Commission on Terrorist Attacks
Genre : United States
Nearly three thousand people died in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. In Lower Manhattan, on a field in Pennsylvania, and along the banks of the Potomoc, the United States suffered the single largest loss of life from an enemy attack on its soil.

In November 2002 the United States Congress and President George W. Bush established by law the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States, also known as the 9/11 Commission. This independent, bipartisan panel was directed to examine the facts and circumstances surrounding the September 11 attacks, identify lessons learned, and provide recommendations to safeguard against future acts of terrorism.

This volume is the authorized edition of the Commission's final report.

Passage
3 The Passage of Power - Robert A. Caro
Auteur : Robert A. Caro
Genre : Biographies & Memoirs
Book Four of Robert A. Caro’s monumental The Years of Lyndon Johnson displays all the narrative energy and illuminating insight that led the Times of London to acclaim it as “one of the truly great political biographies of the modern age.  A masterpiece.”
 
The Passage of Power follows Lyndon Johnson through both the most frustrating and the most triumphant periods of his career—1958 to1964.  It is a time that would see him trade the extraordinary power he had created for himself as Senate Majority Leader for what became the wretched powerlessness of a Vice President in an administration that disdained and distrusted him. Yet it was, as well, the time in which the presidency, the goal he had always pursued, would be thrust upon him in the moment it took an assassin’s bullet to reach its mark.
By 1958, as Johnson began to

Chronicling Sharpe's involvement in the famous Battle of Trafalgar in 1805, Sharpe's Trafalgar finds the young ensign captive on a French warship and in gravest peril on the eve of the one of the most spectacular naval confrontations in history.

22 Delaware During the Civil War - Harold Bell Hancock
Auteur : Harold Bell Hancock
Genre : United States
This volume contains the first thorough study ever made of the Civil War in Delaware. While the author's main emphasis is on politics, he also shows the impact of these years of upheaval on the economic, social, and religious life of the state.
Many formerly unknown or forgotten details of 1860 and 1864 are presented here. They include such matters as Lincoln's interest in Delaware politics, the appearance of federal troops at the polls, descriptions of political leaders of the day, and an account of the operation of an underground railroad "in reverse" to supply troops to the confederacy.
Dr. Hancock tells how wartime purchases by the federal government brought prosperity to Wilmington shipyards, gunpowder mills, and leather factories, and how certain Delaware politicians exploited the fear of political and social domination by the Black population to remain in power most

24 The Fake Commission - John M. Strohman
Auteur : John M. Strohman
Genre : Christianity
THE FAKE COMMISSION is written to stir the reader into a serious examination of the true calling on his life. Even Christians can be subject to the influences of the world around them. Some of these influences include the world defining what Christianity is supposed to look like. The world’s definition requires that Christians be nice, do a few good things, never judge, and keep their mouths closed, unless they are advocating viewpoints that will not offend anyone. The reward for such compliance is worldly acceptance, religious approval and financial contributions. This book does not simply explore what the world is telling the church to be, it also examines what a growing segment of the visible church is telling the true Church to be. It will examine questions such as whether the Bible really calls us to “preach the gospel at all times, and if necessary, use words.” What does it r

Omission
42 The Great Omission - Dallas Willard
Auteur : Dallas Willard
Genre : Christianity
The last command Jesus gave the church before he ascended to heaven was the Great Commission, the call for Christians to "make disciples of all the nations." But Christians have responded by making "Christians," not "disciples." This, according to brilliant scholar and renowned Christian thinker Dallas Willard, has been the church's Great Omission.

"The word disciple occurs 269 times in the New Testament," writes Willard. "Christian is found three times and was first introduced to refer precisely to disciples of Jesus. . . . The New Testament is a book about disciples, by disciples, and for disciples of Jesus Christ. But the point is not merely verbal. What is more important is that the kind of life we see in the earliest church is that of a special type of person. All of the assurances and benefits offered to humankind in the gospel evidently presuppose such a life and do not

Washington
45 The Return of George Washington - Edward J. Larson
Auteur : Edward J. Larson
Genre : Biographies & Memoirs
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

"An elegantly written account of leadership at the most pivotal moment in American history" (Philadelphia Inquirer): Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Edward J. Larson reveals how George Washington saved the United States by coming out of retirement to lead the Constitutional Convention and serve as our first president.

After leading the Continental Army to victory in the Revolutionary War, George Washington shocked the world: he retired. In December 1783, General Washington, the most powerful man in the country, stepped down as Commander in Chief and returned to private life at Mount Vernon. Yet as Washington contentedly grew his estate, the fledgling American experiment floundered. Under the Articles of Confederation, the weak central government was unable to raise revenue to pay its debts or reach a consensus on national policy. The

46 You Are the Girl for the Job - Jess Connolly
Auteur : Jess Connolly
Genre : Christianity
You believe (or want to believe) God has called you and given you purpose, but where do you start? How do you get from feeling stuck to making a move? If this sounds familiar, bestselling author Jess Connolly has a message for you: You Are the Girl for the Job.

But this is not simply a peppy catchphrase. This is the straight-up truth God has proclaimed over your life from the beginning, and it's not dependent on what you can do or achieve but based on His power, capacity, and character. 

It has taken one million, maybe one zillion (who knows?!), slight moves of His hand to place you in this exact moment. So forget about fear and second-guessing your gifts, because God has meticulously prepared you to be an ambassador for the Kingdom right where you are, here and now. Life is too short to get stuck in a holding pattern of shame, self-doubt, and comparison.

Pericles
Commission
48 The Pericles Commission - Gary Corby
Auteur : Gary Corby
Genre : Historical
Nicolaos walks the mean streets of Classical Athens as an agent for the promising young politician Pericles. His mission is to find the assassin of the statesman Ephialtes, the man who brought democracy to Athens and whose murder has thrown the city into uproar. It's a job not made any easier by the depressingly increasing number of dead witnesses.

But murder and mayhem don't bother Nico; what's really on his mind is how to get closer (much closer) to Diotima, the intelligent and annoyingly virgin priestess of Artemis, and how to shake off his irritating twelve year-old brother Socrates.

The Pericles Commission is the first in an exciting new series by first-time novelist Gary Corby, who takes us to Ancient Greece at one of the most exciting times in history. In this wonderfully approachable, historically rich novel, Athens is brought vividly to life in a m

Furious
49 Furious George - George Karl & Curt Sampson
Auteur : George Karl & Curt Sampson
Genre : Basketball
The most outspoken and combative coach in NBA history—and one of the most successful, amassing more than 1,175 victories, the sixth best winning record ever—reflects on his life, his career, and his battles on and off the basketball court in this no-holds-barred memoir

A man of deep passion and intensity, George Karl earned his bad boy reputation while playing at the University of North Carolina, a rap that continued through the five years he spent with the San Antonio Spurs—and long after he stopped playing.

Karl’s beery nights, fistfights, and barking followed him into a thirty-five-year coaching career. In a game defined by big stakes and bigger egos, rabid fans and an unforgiving media, Karl was hired and fired a dozen times. After leading a team beset by injuries and with no superstar to its best season of all time—an achievement that earned Karl the

50 The 9/11 Commission Report - Thomas R. Eldridge, Susan Ginsburg, Walter T. Hempel II, Janice L. Kephart, Kelly Moore, Joanne M. Accolla & The National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States
Auteur : Thomas R. Eldridge, Susan Ginsburg, Walter T. Hempel II, Janice L. Kephart, Kelly Moore, Joanne M. Accolla & The National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States
Genre : Political Science
It is perhaps obvious to state that terrorists cannot plan and carry out attacks in the United
States if they are unable to enter the country. Yet prior to September 11, while there were
efforts to enhance border security, no agency of the U.S. government thought of border
security as a tool in the counterterrorism arsenal. Indeed, even after 19 hijackers
demonstrated the relative ease of obtaining a U.S. visa and gaining admission into the
United States, border security still is not considered a cornerstone of national security
policy. We believe, for reasons we discuss in the following pages, that it must be made one.
