Robert Bales, Browne's unceasing advocacy and the daring to take on some of the most unwinnable cases-and nearly win them all-has led 48 Hours'...

Prinny and His Pals: George IV and the Remarkable Gift of Royal Friendship

Prinny and His Pals: George IV and the Remarkable Gift of Royal Friendship by Tom AmbroseFrom the first biography of George IV in 1831 to the last in 2001, Mad King George's son has commonly been held up to ridicule as a weak, selfish, and incompetent spendthrift, barely tolerated by his ministers, loathed by most of his family, and dependent on the emotional support of grasping mistresses. However, acclaimed historian Tom Ambrose-author of Godfather of the Revolution: The Life of Phillipe Egalité, Duc D'Orléans-has uncovered new details on "Prinny" that suggests that, for all his faults, George IV just may have been the most humane and amusing of all British monarchs, notwithstanding...

Sunday Light: Selections From the Sunday Night Journal

Sunday Light: Selections From the Sunday Night Journal by Maclin Horton

The Sunday Night Journal is a series of short essays that appeared every week for the better part of a decade on the blog Light on Dark Water (www.lightondarkwater.com). The subjects include books, music, movies, politics, Catholic faith, Catholic doubt, cigarettes, lawn mowers, love, sex, marriage, cats, dogs, and others. The project attracted a small but enthusiastic and supportive audience, and the author has been encouraged in his hope that the best of them are worth preserving in a convenient form; hence this book, which contains roughly one fourth of the journal entries.

Born just as the British Empire was taking its last breaths, Martin Adeney was part of the 'twilight generation' caught between the imperial and postimperial ages, forced to navigate the insecurities - political, economic and cultural - faced by the British as we struggled to understand and adapt to our diminished place in the world order.

A compelling blend of memoir and narrative history, Baggage of Empire leads us through the crumbling ruins of great industries and imperial trade cities; from the retreat of the northern newspaper empires to an almost exclusively southern, metropolitan viewpoint;...

Nancy Reagan: On the White House Stage

Nancy Reagan: On the White House Stage by James G. Benze Jr.Many thought of her as Queen Nancy. Others as the Dragon Lady. But for millions of Americans, Nancy Reagan was the always-smiling and deeply admiring presidential spouse who stood by her man; that image lingers still in the touching picture of a bereaved widow at her husband's casket.

Nancy Reagan has stirred passionate defenders and acerbic critics in many books and the media. James Benze, however, is the first biographer to discuss the effect of her acting background on her tenure as first lady. Unlike earlier biographers, he focuses on the way she applied her acting skills to meet the demands...
