The award-winning New York Times op-ed columnist probes the widening gap between American ideals and American realities, and urges us to do something about it Bob Herbert is the conscience of the op-ed page of The New York Times, and his work is characterized by a strong moral vision and a deep understanding of the human costs of political decisions. From partisan politics to popular culture, from race relations to criminal justice, few journalists bring to life so movingly the stories of ordinary people caught between the American dream and American realities. Whether it is the inherent injustice of the death penalty or the demagoguery of the war on terrorism, Herbert questions whether we are truly upholding our ideals or merely giving them lip service. In Promises Betrayed, Herbert makes the case that in recent years America has too often failed to live up to its creed of fairness and justice in the lives of working people, racial minorities, children, and others not among the powerful. He introduces us to real people facing real problems and trying to maintain their dignity along the way, and he blows the whistle on imperious public officials who think the rules of common decency do not apply to them. Herbert's tenacious reporting has resulted in the overturning of many wrongful convictions and the release of dozens of innocent people from prison. In these and so many other ways, Herbert keeps us all honest and lives up to the journalist's credo: to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable.

It's a time of transition for the American Right. The old ideas are failing. The conservative movement is disintegrating. And the European Americans who defined and created the United States are rising in defense of their own identity and interests. Gregory Hood is one of the most eloquent and insightful of the writers defining and promoting this transition. Waking Up from the American Dream, his first book, collects some of his most important work, including the legendary "A White Nationalist Memo to White Male Republicans," and a new essay, "Trump: The Last American," on the meaning of Donald Trump's nationalist-populist insurgency. The target of Hood's withering critique is "Americanism" itself, the classical liberal ideology that is dissolving America's white ethnic and cultural core. Hood explains his intellectual path from conservatism to White Nationalism-and why you should follow. For those seeking to understand the emerging White Right, Gregory Hood is one voice you can't afford to ignore. "In our movement, Gregory Hood is unquestionably the best writer of his generation. Indeed, he could be the best writer in the entire movement."-Jared Taylor, author of White Identity "Gregory Hood is a brilliant stylist with a great sense of humor as well as a firm grasp of the issues facing white America. I found these essays a pleasure to read, and I was impressed again and again by the depth of his insight into complex issues."-Kevin MacDonald, author of The Culture of Critique "Political theater in America is usually insufferably boring and smarmy, if occasionally comical and sometimes absurd. But when Gregory Hood weighs in, I pay attention. He has an insider's grasp of the political scene and a talent for teasing the farce out of the most dismal current affairs. But he's no mere heckler. He's got a dream for America and the West, too, and he employs humor and insight to reveal what is wrong and what could very well be the New Right."-Jack Donovan, author of Becoming a Barbarian "Gregory Hood is quite simply the best political columnist to have emerged on the authentic Right since the death of Sam Francis. He is free of illusions concerning not only the regime under which we live but also the confidence tricksters of the 'conservative movement' who makes such a comfortable living shadow-boxing with it. For countless European-descended Americans gradually coming to realize they have been lied to since birth, but unsure what to do next, Hood will be an invaluable guide."-F. Roger Devlin, author of Sexual Utopia in Power "Reading Gregory Hood's Waking Up from the American Dream has reawakened the pain of an old wound. For I am old enough to remember the old America. The America that sent a man to the Moon. The America of endless possibilities. And, yes, the America that was 90% white. And that America is gone. The new America is based on anti-white envy and sexual degeneracy pushed on our smallest children. The flag may still be the same, but the old America, the Dream, is dead. Gregory Hood has written a powerful and poignant book about what we have lost. I highly recommend this book."-Ramzpaul "Calling Mr. Hood's work 'must read' doesn't quite do it justice. Perhaps no voice has been as prescient in detailing the crisis unfolding in America for its historic majority population, and in noting the proposition nation is irredeemable. This is the seminal political work for understanding the situation white people face in America."-Paul Kersey, author of Escape from Detroit "Prolific. Punchy. Powerful. Gregory Hood is one of the most insightful and entertaining writers in the Alt Right."-Richard Spencer, National Policy Institute

The keynote speaker at the 2012 DNC, former San Antonio mayor and Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Julian Castro, tells his remarkable and inspiring life story. In the spirit of a young Barack Obama's Dreams from My Father, comes a candid and compelling memoir about race and poverty in America. In many ways, there was no reason Julian Castro would have been expected to be a success. Born to unmarried parents in a poverty-stricken neighborhood of a struggling city, his prospects of escaping his circumstance seemed bleak. But he and his twin brother Joaquin had something going for them: their mother. A former political activist, she provided the launch pad for what would become an astonishing ascent. Julian and Joaquin would go on to attend Stanford and Harvard before entering politics at the ripe age of 26. Soon after, Joaquin become a state representative and Julian was elected mayor of San Antonio, a city he helped revitalize and transform into one of the country's leading economies. His success in Texas propelled him onto the national stage, where he was the keynote speaker at the 2012 DNC--the same spot President Obama held three conventions prior--and then to Washington D.C. where he served as the Obama Administration's Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. After being shortlisted as a potential running mate for Hillary Clinton, he is now seen by many as a future presidential candidate. Julian Castro's story not only affirms the American dream, but also resonates with millions, who in an age of political cynicism and hardening hearts are searching for a new hero. No matter one's politics, this book is the transcendent story of a resilient family and the unlikely journey of an emerging national icon.

Noam Chomsky ist der einflussreichste Intellektuelle der Vereinigten Staaten und in seinem neuen Buch befasst er sich erstmals umfassend mit dem großen Thema unserer Zeit: der sozialen Ungleichheit. Anhand von zehn Prinzipien zur Konzentration von Reichtum und Macht und mithilfe zahlreicher historischer Texte der amerikanischen Geschichte erklärt Noam Chomsky, wie der amerikanische Traum – dass jeder es mit harter Arbeit zu etwas bringen kann – in den letzten Jahrzehnten beerdigt und ein System nie da gewesener sozialer Ungleichheit errichtet wurde, von dem letztlich nur einige wenige profitieren. Requiem für den amerikanischen Traum macht die Breite und Tiefe von Noam Chomskys Denken zugänglich wie kein anderes seiner Bücher und verdeutlicht seine politischen Ideen mit einer beispiellosen Direktheit. Die Pflichtlektüre für alle, die noch Hoffnung auf eine gemeinsame, demokratische Gestaltung unserer Zukunft haben.

“¡CIUDADANOS E INMIGRANTES RECIÉN LLEGADOS DEBERÍAN LEER ESTE LIBRO!” Estados Unidos venera su origen inmigrante, pero se está hundiendo en un sentimiento antiinmigrante extraordi¬nario. Esta es una llamada de atención para el bien del país y TODOS sus ciudadanos. POR PRIMERA VEZ EN SU HISTORIA MODERNA, Estados Unidos se está convirtiendo en un país hostil hacia el recién llegado. El despertar del sueño americano nos muestra cómo el tono negativo y las prácticas antiinmigrantes de hoy amenazan la estabilidad social y económica de un país que se hizo grande gracias a los mismos extranjeros, quienes arribaron en todas sus épocas para trabajar en los oficios más duros y necesarios, permitiendo el progreso de los que llegaron antes. PILAR MARRERO, reportera y editora del diario La Opinión, es una de las periodistas hispanas más solicitadas en Estados Unidos, sirviendo de analista para noticieros en español e inglés como CNN, CNN en español, BBC World, NBC Channel 4 News en Los Ángeles y Al Punto con Jorge Ramos de Univisión, entre otros.

Wenn in den USA schwarze Teenager von Polizisten ermordet werden, ist das nur ein Problem von individueller Verfehlung? Nein, denn rassistische Gewalt ist fest eingewebt in die amerikanische Identität – sie ist das, worauf das Land gebaut ist. Afroamerikaner besorgten als Sklaven seinen Reichtum und sterben als freie Bürger auf seinen Straßen. In seinem schmerzhaften, leidenschaftlichen Manifest verdichtet Ta-Nehisi Coates amerikanische und persönliche Geschichte zu einem Appell an sein Land, sich endlich seiner Vergangenheit zu stellen. Sein Buch wurde in den USA zum Nr.-1-Bestseller und ist schon jetzt ein Klassiker, auf den sich zukünftig alle Debatten um Rassismus beziehen werden.
