<div><b>The life of John Marshall, Founding Father and America's premier chief justice</b></div><div> </div><div><br /></div><div>In 1801, a genial and brilliant Revolutionary War veteran and politician became the fourth chief justice of the United States. He would hold the post for 34 years (still a record), expounding the Constitution he loved. Before he joined the Supreme Court, it was the weakling of the federal government, lacking in dignity and clout. After he died, it could never be ignored again. Through three decades of dramatic cases involving businessmen, scoundrels, Native Americans, and slaves, Marshall defended the federal government against unruly states, established the Supreme Court's right to rebuke Congress or the president, and unleashed the power of American commerce. For better and for worse, he made the Supreme Court a pillar of American life. </div><div><br /></div><div>In <i>John Marshall</i>, award-winning biographer Richard Brookhiser vividly chronicles America's greatest judge and the world he made.</div>

<p><strong>One of <em>Publishers Weekly's</em> 10 Best Books of 2017<br /><br />Longlisted for the National Book Award</strong></p><br /><p><strong>This “powerful and disturbing history” exposes how American governments deliberately imposed racial segregation on metropolitan areas nationwide (<em>New York Times Book Review</em>).</strong></p><br />Widely heralded as a “masterful” (<em>Washington Post</em>) and “essential” (<em>Slate</em>) history of the modern American metropolis, Richard Rothstein’s <em>The Color of Law</em> offers “the most forceful argument ever published on how federal, state, and local governments gave rise to and reinforced neighborhood segregation” (William Julius Wilson). Exploding the myth of de facto segregation arising from private prejudice or the unintended consequences of economic forces, Rothstein describes how the American government systematically imposed residential segregation: with undisguised racial zoning; public housing that purposefully segregated previously mixed communities; subsidies for builders to create whites-only suburbs; tax exemptions for institutions that enforced segregation; and support for violent resistance to African Americans in white neighborhoods. A groundbreaking, “virtually indispensable” study that has already transformed our understanding of twentieth-century urban history (<em>Chicago Daily Observer</em>), <em>The Color of Law</em> forces us to face the obligation to remedy our unconstitutional past.

<B>One of America’s most celebrated lawyers and a Democrat explains why impeachment proceedings would be a bad idea for America―and only intensify the larger problem with our democracy. </B><BR><BR> In the 2018 <I>New York Times</I> bestseller <I>The Case Against Impeaching Trump</I>, Alan Dershowitz lamented how American political discourse has devolved into hypocrisy and the criminalization of political differences in the rush to impeach President Donald Trump. Arguments to impeach Trump failed Dershowitz’s “shoe on the other foot test,” or his political golden rule: Democrats must do unto Republicans what they would have Republicans do unto them, and vice versa. <BR><BR> Since then, we’ve only become more divided―and the impeachment power wielded by the new Democratic majority in the House of Representative threatens to further polarize the country. <BR><BR><I>The Case Against the Democratic House Impeaching Trump</I> includes and expands upon Dershowitz’s 2018 book. It puts recent political events―including the hyper-partisan Kavanaugh hearings, the unrestrained power of the Mueller investigation, and the generally intolerant current political discourse―into context. American democracy, Dershowitz argues, is suffering from political hypocrisy. And two years of impeachment proceedings brought by the House―and the media circus that would undoubtedly surround them―is clearly not the answer. This book is Alan Dershowitz’s plea for honest dialogue―for arguments that would be made even if the shoe was on the other foot.
