Happy Cyber Monday! A few years back, I assembled the most comprehensive list of National Review–related books and paraphernalia you’ll find anywhere. A few of the links no longer work, so here’s an updated list . . .
Victor Davis Hanson has written at least 24 books; his most recent one, The Second World Wars, How the First Global Conflict Was Fought and Won, is just $25.47 at Amazon.
Our friend Quin Hillyer recently jumped nto the world of fiction with the novel Mad Jones, Heretic, now available in paperback.
Jay Nordlinger’s book on the offspring of history’s worst dictators, Children of Monsters, is just $12.09 if you have Amazon Prime; Peace, They Say, a history of the Nobel Peace Prize and the odd choices of the past, is just $9.78.
Kevin Williamson’s written several books; perhaps his best and most unexpected is his ode to the unexpected upside of national fiscal ruin, The End Is Near and It’s Going to Be Awesome, currently just $21.38.
Ramesh Ponnuru’s 2006 work, The Party of Death, is almost sold out! Kathryn Lopez’s How to Defend the Faith without Raising Your Voice: Civil Responses to Catholic Hot Button Issues is always needed.
Charlie Cooke’s much-needed rallying cry, The Conservatarian Manifesto, is just $16.05 with Amazon Prime, and it’s needed with government on the march, and voices calling for its expansion on both the Left and the Right.
You will rarely find a more personal or significant description of military family life than Home and Away: A Story of Family in a Time of War by David and Nancy French.
John Fund’s books are always fascinating, and his topics of interest are never far from the daily news, whether it’s the politicization of the Justice Department in Obama’s Enforcer: Eric Holder’s Justice Department, the updated Stealing Elections: How Voter Fraud Threatens Our Democracy, or Who’s Counting? How Fraudsters and Bureaucrats Put Your Vote at Risk.
Long before critical looks at Bill Clinton were a current fad, Rich was taking a clear-eyed, scathing look at his record: Legacy: Paying the Price for the Clinton Years looks in light of Hillary’s 2016 ambitions. Banquo’s Ghosts was a chilling thriller about Iranian nuclear ambitions and terrorism in New York City.
It’s always a good time for a good perusal of Andy McCarthy’s work; his skeptical Spring Fever: The Illusion of Islamic Democracy sure looks prescient today. Our old friend John J. Miller’s written both acclaimed nonfiction and fiction, with The Polygamist King: A True Story of Murder, Lust, and Exotic Faith in America available for Kindle.
A lot of Roman Genn’s best artwork is available for purchase, both prints and originals. You know his hilarious caricatures, but Roman can hit deep, meaningful emotional chords with his work . . .
Then, of course, there’s Heavy Lifting, written by Cam Edwards and myself, a book that the Winnipeg Free Press – you know, the paper where all the best book reviews run — called “cheerful and personal… this eminently readable book is a breath of fresh air, bracingly presented to a culture that (like so many cultures in the past) feels that it is in trouble.”
Finally, as the Trump administration and Congressional Republicans find taming the federal bureaucracy much more difficult than they expected, perhaps more than ever they need to read The Weed Agency, the only novel I know that made the Washington Post’s nonfiction bestseller list.
