Newsmax Rising Bestsellers – Week of June 27, 2022

By    |   Monday, 27 June 2022 12:37 PM EDT

The Newsmax Rising Bestsellers list will do more than stimulate your mind. These reads may challenge your beliefs, broaden your perspectives, excite your curiosities, or widen your imagination.

These books may not necessarily appear on the official New York Times list of bestsellers, but they're the ones our Newsmax audience is reading, talking about, sharing with friends, and buying.

Here are the Newsmax Rising Bestsellers for the week of July 4, 2022:

1. “Not My First Rodeo: Lessons from the Heartland’’ by Kristi Noem (Grand Central Publishing)

The outspoken Republican governor of South Dakota, Kristi Noem, tells of her rough and tumble story of growing up on a ranch, and how a blessed life of true grit taught her how to lead. The publisher says this memoir is written in the “familiar, unvarnished voice of a woman who later defied Washington’s most powerful politicians and led the people of her small, hardscrabble state through natural disasters, the pain of a global pandemic, and the fear and turmoil that gripped the nation after.” (Nonfiction)

2. “The War of Nerves: Inside the Cold War Mind’’ by Martin Sixsmith (Pegasus Books)

Sixsmith, who reported for the BBC from Moscow during the Russian presidencies of Mikhail Gorbachev and Boris Yeltsin, explores the history of the Cold War through the minds of the people who lived through it. Using untapped archives and new sources, he recreates the tensions and paranoia of the period from a psychological perspective, and profiles unique personalities like Nikita Khrushchev, John Kennedy, and Richard Nixon, who were caught up in the conflict. The author also links the paranoia of the Cold War to today's uncertain times. (Nonfiction)

3. “Cloudmoney: Cash, Cards, Crypto, and the War for Our Wallets’’ by Brett Scott (Harper Business) 

Scott, a financial activist and former broker, says the reach of corporations into our lives via credit/debit cards and apps has never been greater, with many Americans rarely using cash anymore. But, he argues, what we’re told is a natural and inevitable move is actually the work of powerful interests. He adds that one of the great battles of our nation is the fight for ownership of the digital footprints that make up our lives. The book poses the questions: Who benefits from a cashless society and who gets left behind? And is the end of cash the end of true privacy? (Nonfiction)

4. “The Arc of a Covenant: The United States, Israel, and the Fate of the Jewish People’’ by Walter Russell Mead (Knopf)

Mead, a Henry Kissinger Senior Fellow in American foreign policy at the Council on Foreign Relations, rejects the conventional understanding of the Israeli-American relationship, trashing the myths pro-Zionists and anti-Zionists he says have fostered over the years. He argues that Zionism has always been a divisive subject in the American Jewish community, and American Christians have often been the most fervent supporters of a Jewish state. He cites examples from J.P. Morgan and John D. Rockefeller to the present day. (Nonfiction)

5. “The Digital Republic: On Freedom and Democracy in the 21st Century’’ by Jamie Susskind (Pegasus Books)

Susskind, one of the leading intellectuals of the digital age, investigates what he calls one of great political questions of our time: how can freedom and democracy survive in a world of powerful digital technologies? He says the tech industry, once widely admired, and the internet, regarded as a tonic for freedom and democracy, are now plagued by daily reports of racist algorithms, data leaks, and social media platforms festering with falsehood and hate. But, he argues, these problems are not the fault of a few bad apples at the top of the industry, but rather the result of our failure to govern technology properly. (Nonfiction)
