September, October, and November are BIG months for the publishing companies all around. Everyone is eager to pick out a book that will be a “must buy” for the gift giving season, start a conversation about the table at Thanksgiving, or be as popular as last November’s runaway hit, Becoming by Michelle Obama.
This October feels jam-packed with political books, especially on the right. It’s almost the off-year elections. It’s also the last Christmas before the 2020 presidential election. Why not get your message out there? Whether it’s looking at history, condemning socialism, or looking at the resistance to President Trump, there’s a stock-full lineup of political books coming out on the fall this month.
Here’s a quick look:
The Case Against Socialism by Rand PaulIn The Case Against Socialism, Rand Paul outlines the history of socialism, from Stalin’s gulags to the current famine in Venezuela. He tackles common misconceptions about the “utopia” of socialist Europe. As it turns out, Scandinavian countries love capitalism as much as Americans, and have, for decades, been cutting back on the things Bernie loves the most.
Three Days at the Brink: FDR’s Daring Gamble to Win World War II by Bret BaierFrom the #1 bestselling author of Three Days in Moscow and anchor of Fox News Channel’s Special Report with Bret Baier, a gripping history of the secret meeting that set the stage for victory in World War II—the now-forgotten 1943 Tehran Conference, where Franklin D. Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, and Joseph Stalin plotted the war’s endgame, including the D-Day invasion.
Witch Hunt: The Story of the Greatest Mass Delusion in American Political History by Greg JarrettIn Witch Hunt¸ Gregg Jarrett uncovers the bureaucratic malfeasance and malicious politicization of our country’s justice system. The law was weaponized for partisan purposes. Even though it was Hillary Clinton’s campaign that collected and disseminated a trove of lies about Trump from a former British spy and Russian operatives, Democrats and the media spun this into a claim that Trump was working for the Russians.
Resistance (At All Costs): How Trump Haters Are Breaking America by Kimberley StrasselAmong the most consistent and aggressive criticisms of Donald Trump is that he is a threat to American democracy — a human wrecking ball demolishing our most basic values and institutions. Resistance (At All Costs) makes the opposite case — that it is Trump’s critics, in their zeal to oppose the president, who are undermining our foundations. From the FBI’s unprecedented counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign, to bureaucratic sabotage, to media partisanship, to the drive-by character assassination of Trump nominee Brett Kavanaugh, the president’s foes have thrown aside norms, due process and the rule of law. Resistance (At All Costs) shows that the reaction to Trump will prove far more consequential and damaging to our nation long-term than Trump’s time in office.
