The best of America and its worst are examined in this week’s Newsmax Rising Bestsellers. The best goes from suggesting how America’s youth — Generation Z — can restore the country to greatness by following conservative values of limited government and personal responsibility to describing the valor of U.S. Marines in a little-known battle to arguing that to defeat China the U.S. only needs the same strategy as that which subdued the Soviets. Another, however, describes, through interviews, what drives radical activists to think the way they do. And in fiction, there is the latest installment of the adventures of an old fictional friend.

The Atlas Maneuver,” by Steve Berry (Grand Central Publishing)

This is the 18th installment of New York Times bestselling author Steve Berry’s popular Cotton Malone series of novels. In “Atlas,” he unravels a legend known as Yamashita’s Gold, a vast cache of bullion and other valuables worth billions, hidden by Japan in the closing days of World War II. “I've been a fan of Berry's Cotton Malone series from the beginning. And the books featuring Cassiopeia Witt are just that much better,” wrote Todd, reviewing for GoodReads. “Fun, adventure and murder make this one of the best Malone books in the series.” [Fiction]

The End of the Alphabet: How Gen Z Can Save America, by Isabel Brown (Center Street)

Author Isabel Brown is a livestreamer, author, and former White House staffer who directed and hosted Turning Point USA’s original documentary, “The Eye of the Storm.” In “The End of the Alphabet” she inspires her fellow members of Generation Z, those from 12-27, to embrace conservative values, fight for the future and pursue their American dream. As the largest emerging demographic in American history, she argues that Gen Z has the power to change the world for the better. “I follow Isabel Brown and Dave Rubin on Instagram and was very interested to hear what she had to say about her generation,” said Elizabeth Knight for GoodReads “I applaud the fact that her generation has social media at their fingertips and in a world where Libs of TikTok looks for the most outrageous clips, there are youth who still speak about conservative values. It will be interesting to see how the future pans out for them and I hope to be able to see it.” [Nonfiction]

Get It Together: Troubling Tales from the Liberal Fringe,” by Jesse Watters (Broadside Books)

An instant No. 1 New York Times bestseller, in “Get It Together,” Fox News host Watters confronts “wokeism” by interviewing nearly two dozen radical activists to find out what it is they’re looking to achieve. He soon discovered that they didn’t need a change in policy so much as a therapist. No matter what their personal interest — climate change salvation, Black supremacy, social justice, or LGBT issues (including a trans activist who identifies as a wolf), they seek a resolution of their particular issue everywhere except from where it springs — themselves. “The book consists of 22 interviews with individuals from the ‘liberal fringe’ — a climate cultist who stops traffic, a radical prison reformer, a drag queen, a Stalinist, no-boundaries parent, and so on. The common thread is that each of these individuals wants to change the world,” wrote Richard Schwartz for Amazon. “Bottom line: this is an enjoyable and thoughtful read, but not a major breakthrough work in the social sciences. It was not intended to be, of course. It is, nevertheless, thought-provoking.” [Nonfiction]

Triumph Over the Taliban: The Untold Story of US Marines’ Courageous Fight to Save Camp Bastion,” by Jeanne McKinney (Patriot Profiles Productions)

Most Americans are familiar with the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, in which four Americans were killed — including the U.S. ambassador to Libya. What happened three days later in Afghanistan isn’t as well-known. A huge forward operating base called Camp Bastion, manned by both U.S. and U.K. expeditionary forces, was attacked. But coming so fast on the heels of the embarrassing Benghazi debacle, U.S. officials opted to suppress it. This was, after all, an election year, and in less than two months Barack Obama was on the ballot for another four years in the White House. For the first time, “Triumph Over the Taliban” reveals the story of what happened at Camp Bastion on the night of the attack — the valor, grit, bravery, and exceptional skill of the U.S. Marines and the blame that resulted in the unjust dismissal of two highly respected generals. “This was a fascinating, inspiring, heart breaking, frustrating, incredible story. Everything is detailed and specifically documented yet still not believed,” wrote Lee G. Reynolds, reviewing for Amazon. “The Marines did not do what they did for glory, medals or ribbons. But since that is the reward given for valor, the highest awards should be given to them all.” [Nonfiction]

We Win, They Lose: Republican Foreign Policy and the New Cold War,”

by Matthew Kroenig & Dan Negrea (Republic Book Publishers)

In this book, the authors argue that in order to deal with America’s Cold War with China, we should follow the game plan then-presidential candidate Ronald Reagan laid out in 1977. When the discussion turned to foreign affairs, he said, “My idea of American policy toward the Soviet Union is simple, and some would say simplistic. It is this: We win, and they lose.” And it worked. The Soviet Union dissolved shortly after Reagan left office. In order to succeed against China, we have to recognize that China is not merely America’s primary competitor, but is also our No. 1 enemy. Behind all the diplomatic niceties, that’s how China views the United States. We have to respond in kind. “(Matthew) Kroenig and (Dan) Negrea articulate a strong vision for American victory in the tradition of two consequential Republican presidents,” wrote Daniel Samet for the Washington Free Beacon. “As Republicans consider what to do should they retake the White House this election, ‘We Win, They Lose’ should be on their reading lists.”
