2. “Forging a New America: How American Liberalism and Climate Change Landed Us in Siberia” by Roger Colley (Liberty Hill Publishing)
Colley says young Americans and their Progressive Liberal educators have engaged a significant number of politicians and pundits into pushing their agenda towards America becoming a Socialist nation.

3. “Corruptible: Who Gets Power and How It Changes Us’’ by Brian Klaas (Scribner)
Does power corrupt, or are corrupt people drawn to power?
Are entrepreneurs who embezzle and cops who kill the result of poorly designed systems or are they just bad people?
Are tyrants made or born?
To answer these questions, Klaas, a professor of global politics at University College London, draws on over 500 interviews with some of the world’s top leaders — from the noblest to the dirtiest — including presidents, philanthropists, rebels, cultists and dictators. (Nonfiction)
4. “The Last King of America: The Misunderstood Reign of George III’’ by Andrew Roberts (Viking)
A revisionist history of George III, the last British ruler of America’s original 13 colonies, who was portrayed as a preening, pompous buffoon in the Broadway smash “Hamilton.’’ Roberts, who’s authored biographies of Churchill and Napoleon, argues that contrary to his reputation as a monarch with few, if any, redeeming qualities, George III was actually a wise, humane, and even enlightened leader who was beset by talented enemies, debilitating mental illness, incompetent ministers, and disastrous luck.
The author also blames George’s bad rap partially on the “brilliantly persuasive opinions’’ of eighteenth-century revolutionaries like Thomas Paine and Thomas Jefferson. (Nonfiction)
5. “The Dark Hours” by Michael Connelly (Little, Brown and Company)
Beloved Los Angeles Detective Harry Bosch is back (for the 24th time) in Connelly’s bestselling cop series.
