Newsmax Rising Bestsellers – Week of Jan. 2, 2023

Newsmax Rising Bestsellers – Week of Jan. 2, 2023

By    |   Monday, 02 January 2023 05:18 PM EST

This week’s offerings begin the new year with a look at an American Revolutionary War hero’s quest for justice, as well as a modern-day hero to conservatives who sees the American concept of “justice for all” slipping away. So how do we get back to where we need to be? A frequent Newsmax contributor may have both the answer and a roadmap to achieve the goal. We also include a look at the incredible life of a 1940s child star of the silver screen who became one of the most popular and enduring American actresses of all time. Finally, although political thriller novelist Vince Flynn may have left us all too early, his most enduring character lives on in a new work of fiction.

Here are Newsmax’s list of this week’s rising bestsellers.

Elizabeth Taylor: The Grit & Glamour of an Icon,” by Kate Andersen Brower (HarperCollins)

Elizabeth Taylor was one of the last products of the studio system. After a few minor appearances, her career really took off when she co-starred with Mickey Rooney in the 1944 MGM classic “National Velvet,” and her popularity continued to skyrocket. Taylor effortlessly made the transition as an adult actress six years later in “Father of the Bride,” with Spencer Tracy playing the dad of Taylor’s title character, a role she would often play in real life: she was married eight times to seven different men throughout her 79 years. Other memorable films include “Giant” with Rock Hudson, “Butterfield 8,” and of course “Cleopatra,” in which she played the title role against her real life twice-married spouse Richard Burton as Mark Antony. “The Grit and Glamour” is the first authorized biography of who is without question the most famous female movie star of the 20th century. (Nonfiction)

“How to Raise a Conservative Daughter” by Michelle Easton (Regnery)

Raising a child is daunting, just from the basics of homework, eating healthily to getting him or her to wear matching socks. Raising a conservative daughter seems near impossible with toxic social media, radical feminist indoctrination in schools, corrosive messages from the entertainment industry and a news media that stokes anti-Americanism and mocks traditional families. Michelle Easton, founder and president of the Clare Boothe Luce Center for Conservative Women with 12years in the Reagan-Bush administrations, offers her insights on how plain good principled parenting may not be enough. While there are no guarantees nor magic pills, there are counterintuitive techniques moms and dad can use to increase their odds of success of raising a daughter with traditional values. (Nonfiction)

Justice Corrupted: How the Left Weaponized Our Legal System,” by Ted Cruz (Regnery Publishing)

Republican Ted Cruz, Texas’ junior senator, a 2016 presidential hopeful, and constitutional scholar, reveals how he says the left has corrupted what was considered just a few decades earlier the most admired legal system on Earth. They did it by nominating activist judges and electing lawless prosecutors, all with an agenda to promote a leftist agenda who will stop at nothing — including imprisonment — to roll over anyone that gets in their way. And as demonstrated in just the last few years, those enemies include even parents who speak out at school board meetings against the “woke” agenda that’s fast replacing the teaching of academics and traditional values. The result is a new American legal system that promotes “liberty and justice for some.” (Nonfiction)

Oath of Loyalty (A Mitch Rapp Novel) by Kyle Mills (Emily Bestseller Books)

Vince Flynn, the creator of the Mitch Rapp political thrillers, passed away nearly 11 years ago of prostate cancer, but his characters live on, thanks to Kyle Mills. In this latest installment, the president believes that Rapp is a mortal threat to him, and with the CIA director acting as a go-between, Rapp agrees to leave the country and remain in plain sight throughout the president’s tenure. The truce falls apart when the president is convinced by his security adviser that Rapp intends to break their truce. Eventually, both Rapp and his partner, Claudia Gould, find themselves in the crosshairs of a shadowy assassin known only as Legion, who once hired, can’t be called off. (Fiction)

The Revolutionary: Samuel Adams,” by Stacy Schiff (Little, Brown and Company)

According to Thomas Jefferson, if there was any single leader of the American Revolution, “Samuel Adams was the man.” Adams combined lofty ideals with bare-knuckle tactics to lead what may have been the greatest campaign of civil resistance in American history. Biographer Stacy Schiff agrees, and reveals the shrewd, eloquent man who provided the American Revolution the moral backbone it needed to achieve victory. A singular figure at a singular moment, Adams, along with Paul Revere, widely publicized the Boston Massacre as a rallying cry to the colonists, and later helped mastermind the Boston Tea Party. His rallying cries were first answered by Boston, then Massachusetts, and finally by all 13 colonies with a dream to establish a new nation built upon the principles of liberty and equality. And his efforts did not go unnoticed by the British Crown — he became the most wanted man in America. England wanted him for treason. Adams eventually served as a Massachusetts delegate to the Continental Congress, Senate president of the new commonwealth of Massachusetts, and later as its governor. (Nonfiction)
