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 27, 2020:

  1. "Debunking Howard Zinn: Exposing the Fake History That Turned a Generation Against America" by Mary Grabar (Regnery). Grabar, a resident fellow at the Alexander Hamilton Institute for the Study of Western Civilization, dissects Howard Zinn's bestselling book, "A People's History of the United States," which claims American history is nothing more than a litany of oppression, slavery, and exploitation. She rips Zinn's "Marxist talking points that now dominate American education," arguing that Columbus was not a genocidal maniac, and was, in fact, a defender of Indians; how the United States was founded to protect liberty, not white males' ill-gotten wealth; why Americans of the 'Greatest Generation' were not the equivalent of Nazi war criminals; and how the Viet Cong were not well-meaning community leaders advocating for local self-rule. (Nonfiction)
  2. "Lights Out: Pride, Delusion, and the Fall of General Electric" by Thomas Gryta and Ted Mann (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt). The two Wall Street Journal reporters who covered epic decline of General Electric trace the company's founding in 1892, its rise to the top as an elite Fortune 500 company, and how its win-at-all-costs strategy ultimately caused its decline. The authors focus on its legendary CEO Jack Welch, who turned the multinational conglomerate into a flawed profit machine, and his handpicked successor, Jeff Immelt, who tried to fix the problems but stumbled into mistakes of his own. (Nonfiction)
  3. "Defender in Chief: Donald Trump's Fight for Presidential Power" by John Yoo (All Points Books). The former Justice Department official and conservative constitutional scholar makes a case against President Donald Trump's alleged disruption of constitutional rules and norms, arguing that he isn't shredding the Constitution — but is its greatest defender. He says far from considering Trump an inherent threat to our nation's founding principles, that Washington, Jefferson, Madison, and Hamilton would have seen the commander-in-chief Trump as returning to their vision of presidential power, even at his most controversial. (Nonfiction)
  4. "Mayday 1971: A White House at War, a Revolt in the Streets, and the Untold History of America's Biggest Mass Arrest" by Lawrence Roberts (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt). A detailed account of the largest act of civil disobedience in U.S. history, as tens of thousands of radicals, flower children, and vets tried to stage a blockade in Washington, D.C., in a bid to force Richard Nixon to end America's war in Vietnam — and how the increasingly paranoid president was determined to stop it. Roberts draws on interviews, archives, and newfound White House transcripts to recreate the conflict that began with a bombing inside the U.S. Capitol — a still-unsolved case to which the author brings new information — and ended with military troops and riot squads arresting more than 12,000 people. (Nonfiction)
  5. "Rigged: America, Russia, and One Hundred Years of Covert Electoral Interference" by David Shimer (Knopf). Shimer says Russia's interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election is the latest chapter of a hidden history of covert electoral meddling. He chronicles decades of secret operations by the KGB, the CIA, and Vladimir Putin's Russia to shape electoral outcomes. The author interviewed leading officials in both the Trump and Obama administrations, CIA and NSA directors, and a former KGB general. He believes Russia's central aim is to undermine and disrupt U.S. democracy, to the detriment of all Americans — interference that can harm Democrats and Republicans alike. (Nonfiction)
