              A New York Times Book Review New & Noteworthy Title For democracy's weary champions, White's time-tested prose is a shot of adrenaline (Madeleine Albright). I am a member of a party of one, and I live in an age of fear. These words were written by E. B. White in 1947. Decades bef...ore our current political turmoil, White crafted eloquent yet practical political statements that continue to resonate. There's only one kind of press that's any good-- he proclaimed, a press free from any taint of the government. He condemned the trend of defamation, arguing that in doubtful, doubting days, national morality tends to slip and slide toward a condition in which the test of a man's honor is his zeal for discovering dishonor in others. And on the spread of fascism he lamented, fascism enjoys at the moment an almost perfect climate for growth--a world of fear and hunger. Anchored by an introduction by Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Jon Meacham, this concise collection of essays, letters, and poems from one of this country's most eminent literary voices offers much-needed historical context for our current state of the nation--and hope for the future of our society. Speaking to Americans at a time of uncertainty, when democracy itself has come under threat, he reminds us, As long as there is one upright man, as long as there is one compassionate woman . . . the scene is not desolate.

              For only the fourth time in American history, the House of Representatives has conducted an impeachment inquiry into a sitting United States president. This landmark document details the findings of the House Intelligence Committee's historic investigation of whether President Do...nald Trump committed impeachable offenses when he sought to have Ukraine investigate former vice president Joe Biden and his son Hunter. Penetrating a dense web of connected activity by the president, his ambassador Gordon Sondland, his personal attorney Rudolph Giuliani, and many others, these pages offer a damning, blow-by-blow account of the president's attempts to use the powers of his office to solicit foreign interference on his behalf in the 2020 election and his subsequent attempts to obstruct the House investigation into his actions. Published here with an introduction offering critical context from bestselling presidential historian Jon Meacham, The Impeachment Report is necessary reading for every American concerned about the fate of our democracy.

Edited and with introductions by Pulitzer Prize winner Jon Meacham and with an afterword by Pulitzer Prize winner Annette Gordon-Reed.

Meacham writes of how, Jefferson's words provide a manual for U.S. citizens in the twenty-first century, thoughts revitalize the way readers relate to Jeffersonian concepts including - Freedom: Divided we stand, united we fall. - The importance of a free press: Were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers, or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter. - Public education: Enlighten the public generally, and tyranny and oppressions of body & mind will vanish like evil spirits at the dawn of day. - Participation in government: A citizen should be a participator in the government of affairs not merely at an election, one day in the year, but every day. There are also sections on immigration, voting, equality, patriotism, partisanship, and with introductions to each subject by Meacham. This book will be enlightening for all citizens of the American republic.

              An intimate and inspiring portrait of civil rights icon and longtime U.S. congressman John Lewis, linking his life to the quest for justice in America from the 1950s to the present--from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Soul of America John Lewis, who at age twenty-five m...arched in Selma, Alabama, and was beaten on the Edmund Pettus Bridge, is a visionary and a man of faith. Drawing on decades of wide-ranging interviews with Lewis and deep research into the history of the civil rights movement, Jon Meacham writes of how this great-grandson of a slave and a son of an Alabama tenant farmer was inspired by the Bible and his teachers in nonviolence, Reverend James Lawson and Martin Luther King, Jr., to put his life on the line in the service of what Abraham Lincoln called the better angels of our nature. A believer in hope above all else, Lewis learned from a young age that nonviolence was not only a tactic but a philosophy, a biblical imperative, and a transforming reality. At the age of four, Lewis, ambitious to become a minister, practiced by preaching to his family's chickens. When his mother cooked one of the chickens, the boy refused to eat it--his first act, he wryly recalled, of nonviolent protest. Integral to Lewis's commitment to bettering the nation was his faith in humanity and in God--and an unshakable belief in the power of hope. Meacham calls Lewis as important to the founding of a modern and multiethnic twentieth- and twenty-first-century America as Thomas Jefferson and James Madison and Samuel Adams were to the initial creation of the nation-state in the eighteenth century. He did what he did--risking limb and life to bear witness for the powerless in the face of the powerful--not in spite of America, but because of America, and not in spite of religion, but because of religion. In many ways Lewis made his vision a reality, and his example offers Americans today a map for social and political change.
