            Russian Roulette is a story of political skullduggery unprecedented in American history. It weaves together tales of international intrigue, cyber espionage, and superpower rivalry. After U.S.-Russia relations soured, as Vladimir Putin moved to reassert Russian strength on the gl...obal stage, Moscow trained its best hackers and trolls on U.S. political targets and exploited WikiLeaks to disseminate information that could affect the 2016 election. The Russians were wildly successful and the great break-in of 2016 was no third-rate burglary. It was far more sophisticated and sinister - a brazen act of political espionage designed to interfere with American democracy. At the end of the day, Trump, the candidate who pursued business deals in Russia, won. And millions of Americans were left wondering, what the hell happened? This story of high-tech spying and multiple political feuds is told against the backdrop of Trump's strange relationship with Putin and the curious ties between members of his inner circle - including Paul Manafort and Michael Flynn - and Russia. Russian Roulette chronicles and explores this bizarre scandal, explains the stakes, and answers one of the biggest questions in American politics: How and why did a foreign government infiltrate the country's political process and gain influence in Washington?

            "The All Blacks had last won the Rugby World Cup in 1987, when Prime Minister David Lange and the Labour team likewise scored a convincing victory. In 2011, New Zealand again hosted the Rugby World Cup, and once again two national teams emerged triumphant - the All Blacks, led by... captain Richie McCaw, and the National Party, led by Prime Minister John Key. This book tells the story of this 2011 election, set against the backdrop of a country caught up in rugby heroics and the aftermath of several life-changing natural disasters. It's the story of an odd campaign - of leaders' debates where the most memorable line, 'show me the money!', comes from a Hollywood movie; and of a meeting for a 'cup of tea', intended to promote the return to Parliament of one party, ACT, which ends up igniting the re-entry to Parliament of another, New Zealand First. It's the story of an election that winds up toppling two party leaders (Labour's Phil Goff and ACT's Don Brash) and ends, at last, the three-year political honeymoon of a third, John Key, even as he wins another term. Kicking the Tyres includes among its authors some of the winners of the 2011 election - New Zealand First's Winston Peters; the Greens' Metiria Turei; National's Steven Joyce; United Future's Peter Dunne; and the Greens' Mojo Mathers. What went wrong is the subject of chapters written by participants from other parties, including Labour's Grant Robertson and high-ranking candidates from the Maori Party, Mana and ACT. Kicking the Tyres views the campaign and the election from a variety of angles and perspectives. New Zealand's wittiest political commentator, Jane Clifton, writes about 'the worm' and other inanities of 2011. Jon Johansson and Colin James discuss John Key's leadership and the impact of the Pike River mine disaster and the Christchurch earthquakes on the government and the country. Other contributors examine the images and 'brands' of New Zealand's political parties and their leaders; the role of Fac
