Philip Roth's bestselling alternate history—the chilling story of what happens to one family when America elects a charismatic, isolationist president—is soon to be an HBO limited series. In an extraordinary feat of narrative invention, Philip Roth imagines an alternate history where Franklin D. Roosevelt loses the 1940 presidential election to heroic aviator and rabid isolationist Charles A. Lindbergh. Shortly thereafter, Lindbergh negotiates a cordial “understanding” with Adolf Hitler, while the new government embarks on a program of folksy anti-Semitism. For one boy growing up in Newark, Lindbergh’s election is the first in a series of ruptures that threaten to destroy his small, safe corner of America–and with it, his mother, his father, and his older brother. "A terrific political novel . . . Sinister, vivid, dreamlike . . . creepily plausible. . . You turn the pages, astonished and frightened.” — The New York Times Book Review

A freak accident with a Chinese shipping container at a west coast port reveals a complex and deadly plot to cripple America with nuclear devices concealed in shipping containers, all controlled by a special satellite. The American President has to handle this threat with military and diplomatic means which could plunge the world into all- out war.China claims that the plot was devised and executed by a group of renegade Chinese officers. The American President demands that the Chinese government turn over the ones responsible for the plot to face justice in American courts, but China claims that they were supposedly killed in a mysterious airplane crash while trying to flee prosecution. While an American inspection team is trying to verify the Chinese claim, the American and Chinese officers working together work out a sort of back channel solution. After the matter is settled the American Colonel goes back to his military duties, but with a new assistant and promotion; the assistant being the Chinese Captain who somehow managed to be included in the American detachment on the return trip. He is welcomed to America with a Presidential appointment to the United States Air Force Academy as a new cadet where his friend the now Brigadier General attends the welcoming ceremony for new cadets.

Richard Drake presents a new interpretation of Charles Austin Beard's life and work. The foremost American historian and a leading public intellectual in the first half of the twentieth century, Beard participated actively in the debates about American politics and foreign policy surrounding the two world wars. Drake takes this famous man's life and rewrites his intellectual biography by placing the European dimension of Beard's thought at the center. This radical change of critical focus allows Drake to correct previous biographers' oversights and, in Charles Austin Beard, present a far more nuanced appreciation for Beard's life than we have read before. Drake proposes a restoration of Beard's professional reputation, which he lost in large part because of his extremely unpopular opposition to America's intervention in World War II. Drake analyzes the stages of Beard's development as a historian and critic: his role as an intellectual leader in the Progressive movement, the support that he gave to the cause of American intervention in World War I, and his subsequent revisionist repudiation of Wilsonian ideals and embrace of non-interventionism in the lead-up to World War II. Many of his dire predictions about the inevitable consequences of pre-World War II American foreign policy have come to pass. Drake shows that, as Americans tally the ruinous costs—both financial and moral—of nation-building and informal empire, the life and work of this prophet of history merit a thorough reexamination.
