HOT OFF THE PRESS

Recent regional author offerings:

- "Republic in Peril" by David C. Hendrickson. Published by: Oxford University Press. Summary: Ranging widely, from the classics of American political thought and international theory to the bewildering thicket of hot wars and regional feuds across the globe that embroil America, Hendrickson forcefully shows that the militarization of U.S. foreign policy is deeply at odds with the animating purposes and principles of the American experiment.

- "The Glass Forest" by Cynthia Swanson. Published by: Touchstone. Summary: In the autumn of 1960, Angie Glass is living an idyllic life in her Wisconsin hometown. At twenty-one, she's married to charming, handsome Paul, and has just given birth to a baby boy. But one phone call changes her life forever.
