- Liberal Privilege: Joe Biden And The Democrats' Defense Of The Indefensible” by Donald Trump Jr. (Self-published). The president’s eldest son charges that “while everyday Americans strive to make an honest living by working hard, liberals within the swamp have perfected a way of barely working while elevating themselves above all of us.” In his new book, Trump Jr. goes behind the scenes of the swamp to recount countless liberal scandals, years of entrenched racism in the Democratic party and decades of failed polices. (Nonfiction)
- “Resistance (At All Costs): How Trump Haters Are Breaking America” by Kimberley Strassel (Grand Central Publishing). The Wall Street Journal columnist argues that the left’s resistance has become dangerously reckless in its obstruction of President Trump. She says among the most consistent and aggressive criticisms of Trump are that he is a threat to American democracy, demolishing our most basic values and institutions. But Strassel makes the opposite case — that it is Trump's critics, in their zeal to oppose the president, who are undermining our foundations. (Nonfiction)
- “American Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic” by Andrew Cuomo (Crown). The New York governor describes the fight against COVID-19 as New York became the epicenter of the pandemic earlier this year. The publisher says Cuomo provides “a dramatic, day-by-day account of the catastrophe as it unfolded,’’ and chronicles the ingenuity and sacrifice required of so many to fight the deadly virus. (Nonfiction)
- “A Time for Mercy” by John Grisham (Doubleday). Lawyer Jake Brigance, the hero of Grisham’s 1989 legal thriller “A Time to Kill,’’ is back in the courtroom, this time finding himself embroiled in a deeply divisive trial when the court appoints him attorney for a timid 16-year-old boy accused of murdering a local deputy. Many are clamoring for a swift guilty verdict and the death penalty, but Brigance digs into the case and discovers there is more to the story than meets the eye. (Fiction)
- “The Confederacy's Most Modern General: James Longstreet and the American Civil War’’ by Harold M. Knudsen (Savas Beatie). Knudsen, a retired Army lieutenant colonel and combat veteran of Desert Storm, examines the military career of Confederate General James Longstreet, who made some of the most profound modern contributions to the art of war. He offers a detailed comparison of Longstreet’s body of work to that of Union Generals U. S. Grant and William T. Sherman in the field of modern military doctrine, revealing several large-scale innovations. Longstreet emerges as a modern thinker unparalleled in the Confederate Army. (Nonfiction)
