AMERICAN HARVEST: God, Country, and Farming in the Heartland by Marie Mutsuki Mockett

“Literate travels in the forgotten American hinterlands…A revealing, richly textured portrait of the lives of those who put food on our tables.”–Kirkus Reviews

HIDING IN PLAIN SIGHT: The Invention of Donald Trump and the Erosion of America by Sarah Kendzior

“Political junkies will be familiar with much of Kendzior’s claims, but she offers a few surprises and many valuable insights into the president’s psychological motivations and methods of manipulation. This comprehensive, page-turning account presents a stark and uncompromising indictment of the Trump presidency as the culmination of a ‘decades-long erosion of American stability, integrity, and democracy.'”–Publishers Weekly

EUROPE AGAINST THE JEWS, 1880-1945 by Götz Aly

“In this sweeping and persuasive study, German historian Aly (WHY THE GERMANS? WHY THE JEWS?) investigates how and why ‘the architects of genocide were able to find support for the Final Solution in nearly all of the countries occupied by or allied with Germany’…This expertly researched account is destined to influence future histories of the Holocaust.”–Publishers Weekly
