            "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

            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?

            Running Against the Devil: A plot to save America from Trump - and Democrats from themselves

            Running Against the Devil: A plot to save America from Trump - and Democrats from themselves (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            In this full-throttle playbook for 2020, Rick Wilson, longtime Republican strategist and #1 New York Times bestselling author of Everything Trump Touches Dies, warns Democrats not to make the mistakes that could re-elect the worst president in history. He argues that Trump is as ...bad as we thought, and worse. His re-election would be a disaster for democracy, for America, and the world as we know it. A thirty-year veteran of national political campaigns and one of the most famous ad makers in politics, Rick Wilson brings his experience, insight, knowledge, and signature humour to the 2020 race, just in time to save the Democrats from their worst instincts. He hammers Trump's destructive and dangerous first term, outlining the mistakes both the Republicans and Hillary Clinton made running against Trump in 2016. He shows exactly how the campaign for Trump will operate, and how Trump will use his social media power against the Democrats. Hope is not lost - if Democrats listen and learn from Wilson. Drawing on his time as a political guru, and infused with his cutting, witty commentary, Running Against the Devil shows Democrats how to deploy what they've learned in the past two years, what the president's weak spots are, what the rules of the 2020 election reality show will be, and where and how to reach the all-important swing voters. Democrats must use every trick in the political playbook in the 2020 election, and Wilson knows where the bodies are buried. A sharply funny and brutally honest assessment of Trump's abysmal, destructive record and of the pitfalls for Democrats that lie ahead, Running Against the Devil lays out a no-nonsense, no-holds-barred roadmap to saving America from Donald Trump. The stakes are too high to do anything less.
