He’s the president with the asterisk by his name: Richard Milhous Nixon, the only US president to resign from office. But Richard Nixon’s legacy to the history of the US is much more complicated than the scandal of Watergate. His is the classic story of American legend - a young man who rose from his humble roots to achieve power and influence. This audiobook will teach you about: The ´´Have-Not” Nixon Nixon rising Vice President The Election of 1960 President at last Watergate Nixon in disgrace Much more Nixon´s story has tinges of Horatio Alger, but also of Machiavelli, and that may be the enigma of him, the student who was offered scholarships to Ivy League schools but couldn’t afford to go there, forever embedding within him the resentment against his political opponents, such as John F. Kennedy. Nixon was the politician who helped to bring the Republican Party back into power after the Roosevelt years, but who didn’t shy away from ´´dirty tricks” in order to win election. He was the dogged, diligent candidate who had his facts in order, but couldn’t compete on television with the telegenic JFK, the anti-communist who negotiated treaties with the Soviet Union and opened the door to China, the president who experienced abuse during the Watergate investigation, and the rehabilitated elder statesmen of American politics in the post-Watergate years. Was Nixon a villain or a hero? Meet the president whose personality consisted of conflicting layers of pragmatism, patriotism, and self-doubt, which caused a fall from grace that roiled American democracy. 1. Language: English.

The Biggest Untold Economic Story of Our Time Here is the truth that the powerful Dirty Energy public relations machine doesn´t want you to know: the ascent of solar energy is upon us. The production of solar-generated electricity has risen exponentially in the last few years, and employment in the solar industry has doubled since 2009. Meanwhile, electricity from coal has declined to pre-World War II levels as the fossil fuel industry continues to shed jobs. Danny Kennedy systematically refutes the lies spread by solar´s opponents-that it is expensive, inefficient, and unreliable; that it is kept alive only by subsidies; that it can´t be scaled; and many other untruths. He shows that we need a rooftop revolution to break the entrenched power of the coal, oil, nuclear, and gas industries. Solar energy can create more jobs, return our nation to prosperity, and ensure the sustainability and safety of our planet. Now is the time to move away from the dangerous energy sources of the past and unleash the amazing potential of the sun. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin Pierce.

Gathering the backing of the wealthiest women in California, she convinces her best friend, Brooks Kennedy, to run for governor.

The powerful and riveting new audiobook in the multimillion-selling Killing series by Bill O´Reilly and Martin Dugard. Autumn 1944. World War II is nearly over in Europe but is escalating in the Pacific, where American soldiers face an opponent who will go to any length to avoid defeat. The Japanese army follows the samurai code of Bushido, stipulating that surrender is a form of dishonor. Killing the Rising Sun takes listeners to the bloody tropical-island battlefields of Peleliu and Iwo Jima and to the embattled Philippines, where General Douglas MacArthur has made a triumphant return and is plotting a full-scale invasion of Japan. Across the globe in Los Alamos, New Mexico, Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer and his team of scientists are preparing to test the deadliest weapon known to mankind. In Washington, DC, FDR dies in office, and Harry Truman ascends to the presidency only to face the most important political decision in history: whether to use that weapon. And in Tokyo, Emperor Hirohito, who is considered a deity by his subjects, refuses to surrender despite a massive and mounting death toll. Told in the same pause-resistant style of Killing Lincoln, Killing Kennedy, Killing Jesus, Killing Patton, and Killing Reagan, this epic saga details the final moments of World War II like never before. 1.
