A “provocative reconstruction of John F. Kennedy’s ‘five-year campaign’ for the White House” (The New Yorker), beginning with his bold, failed attempt to win the vice presidential nomination in 1956 and culminating when he plotted his way to the presidency and changed the way we nominate and elect presidents. John F. Kennedy and his young warriors invented modern presidential politics. They turned over accepted wisdom that his Catholicism was a barrier to winning an election. They hired Louis Harris to become the first presidential pollster. They twisted arms and they charmed. They turned the traditional party inside out. They invented The Missile Gap in the Cold War and out-glamoured Richard Nixon in the TV debates. Now “Thomas Oliphant and Curtis Wilkie, both veteran political journalists, retell the story of this momentous campaign, reminding us of now forgotten details of Kennedy’s path to the White House” (The Wall Street Journal). The authors have examined more than 1,600 oral histories at the John F. Kennedy library; they’ve interviewed surviving sources, including JFK’s sister Jean Smith, and they draw on their own interviews with insiders including Ted Sorensen and Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. From the start of the campaign in 1955, “The Road to Camelot brings much new insight to an important playbook that has echoed through the campaigns of other presidential aspirants as disparate as Barack Obama and Donald Trump. The authors take us step by step on the road to the Kennedy victory, leaving us with an appreciation for the maniacal attention to detail of both the candidate and his brother Robert, the best campaign manager in American political history” (The Washington Post). “A must-read for fans of presidential history” (USA TODAY), this is “an excellent chronicle of JFK’s innovations, his true personality, and how close he came to losing” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review).

From a strange, dark chapter in American political history comes the captivating story of Ted Kennedy's 1980 campaign for president against the incumbent Jimmy Carter, told in full for the first time. The Carter presidency was on life support. The Democrats, desperate to keep power and yearning to resurrect former glory, turned to Kennedy. And so, 1980 became a civil war. It was the last time an American president received a serious reelection challenge from inside his own party, the last contested convention, and the last all-out floor fight, where political combatants fought in real time to decide who would be the nominee. It was the last gasp of an outdated system, an insider's game that old Kennedy hands thought they had mastered, and the year that marked the unraveling of the Democratic Party as America had known it. CAMELOT'S END details the incredible drama of Kennedy's challenge -- what led to it, how it unfolded, and its lasting effects -- with cinematic sweep. It is a story about what happened to the Democratic Party when the country's long string of successes, luck, and global dominance following World War II ran its course, and how, on a quest to recapture the magic of JFK, Democrats plunged themselves into an intra-party civil war. And, at its heart, CAMELOT'S END is the tale of two extraordinary and deeply flawed men: Teddy Kennedy, one of the nation's greatest lawmakers, a man of flaws and of great character; and Jimmy Carter, a politically tenacious but frequently underestimated trailblazer. Comprehensive and nuanced, featuring new interviews with major party leaders and behind-the-scenes revelations from the time, CAMELOT'S END presents both Kennedy and Carter in a new light, and takes readers deep inside a dark chapter in American political history.

Nell Zink, listige Humoristin und Autorin des fulminanten, von der Kritik gefeierten Debüts «Der Mauerläufer», nimmt in ihrem neuen Roman das gespaltene Amerika aufs Korn. Penny Baker, soeben mit dem College fertig, jetzt arbeitslos und zudem durch den kürzlichen Tod ihres Vaters neben der Spur, beschließt, erst mal dessen verfallendes Elternhaus in Jersey City zu renovieren, um wieder Boden unter die Füße zu bekommen. Doch Überraschung: Sie findet es besetzt von ein paar netten, noch rauchenden Anarchisten, die ihrer WG den Namen «Nicotine» verpasst haben. Erster Eindruck: «Als hätte man ungefragt einen Haufen Bettwanzen, die immerhin den Abwasch machen.» Mit der Zeit jedoch geben ihr die Bewohner und andere Hausbesetzer aus der Nachbarschaft einen Sinn für Zugehörigkeit und Gemeinschaft, den Penny dringend braucht, und bald zieht sie nebenan ein und engagiert sich in den politischen Kämpfen der Besetzer. Nur hat der Rest der Familie andere Pläne: Ihre Mutter und ihr spießiger Halbbruder, dem sie noch nie ganz grün war, würden die jungen Chaoten am liebsten von der Polizei räumen lassen. Doch Penny nimmt den Kampf für sie auf – vor allem für Rob, den aus Überzeugung asexuell lebenden Mann, in den sie sich verliebt hat. Dies ist ein Roman über den Kampf zwischen Habenichtsen und Immer-mehr-Wollern, zwischen Idealismus und Pragmatismus – ein Buch über Amerika heute, das kaum witziger, böser, klüger sein könnte.

Eine der unvergesslichen Frauen des 20. Jahrhunderts erinnert sich an die Ehe mit John F. Kennedy und ihre - privaten wie öffentlichen - Erfahrungen. Ein Resümee, fast 50 Jahre unter Verschluss gehalten: vom Aufstieg eines Weltpolitikers bis zum dramatischen Ende, dem Attentat in Dallas. In tiefster Trauer über den Verlust ihres dreieinhalb Monate zuvor ermordeten Mannes empfängt Jacqueline Kennedy Anfang März 1964 den Historiker Arthur M. Schlesinger und gewährt ihm sieben Interviews, insgesamt sechseinhalb Stunden lang. Sie gibt ihm überraschende Einblicke in Kennedys Wirken als Senator und späterer Präsident der USA, erzählt von ihren Gesprächen mit ihm, von ihrer Rolle in seiner politischen Karriere. Sie wirft interessante, von feinem Gespür zeugende Schlaglichter auf Begegnungen mit bedeutenden Männern und weltbewegende Ereignisse wie die Kubakrise. Und auch private Belange rücken in den Blick, etwa der Glaube ihres Mannes, die Verbundenheit der Kennedy-Brüder und ihr eigenes Hineinwachsen in die Rolle der First Lady.

«Absolut unglaublich, ehrlich und herzzerreißend!» Angie Thomas, Autorin von «The Hate U Give» Justyce McAllister ist einer der Besten seiner Klasse, Captain des Debattierclubs und Anwärter auf einen Studienplatz in Yale – doch all das interessiert den Polizisten, der Justyce die Handschellen umlegt, nur wenig. Der Grund für seine Verhaftung: Justyce ist schwarz. Und er lebt in den USA im Jahr 2017. Mit Briefen an sein großes Vorbild Martin Luther King jr. versucht Justyce, dem alltäglichen Rassismus etwas entgegenzusetzen. Und dann ist da noch Sarah-Jane, seine kluge, schöne — und weiße – Debattierpartnerin. Als jedoch sein bester Freund Manny erschossen wird, scheint es, als ob selbst Martin Luther King jr. keine Antwort mehr für Justyce bereithält.
