Book Description: A brilliant and revealing biography of the two most important Americans during the Cold War era—written by the grandson of one of them Only two Americans held positions of great influence throughout the Cold War; ironically, they were the chief advocates for the opposing strategies for winning—and surviving—that harrowing conflict. Both men came to power during World War II, reached their professional peaks during the Cold War's most frightening moments, and fought epic political battles that spanned decades. Yet despite their very different views, Paul Nitze and George Kennan dined together, attended the weddings of each other's children, and remained good friends all their lives. In this masterly double biography, Nicholas Thompson brings Nitze and Kennan to vivid life. Nitze—the hawk—was a consummate insider who believed that the best way to avoid a nuclear clash was to prepare to win one. More than any other American, he was responsible for the arms race. Kennan—the dove—was a diplomat turned academic whose famous "X article" persuasively argued that we should contain the Soviet Union while waiting for it to collapse from within. For forty years, he exercised more influence on foreign affairs than any other private citizen. As he weaves a fascinating narrative that follows these two rivals and friends from the beginning of the Cold War to its end, Thompson accomplishes something remarkable: he tells the story of our nation during the most dangerous half century in history.

Book Description: The Dove... She'd been bought for a strip of land, then abandoned: a bartered bride, married by proxy, determined to wreak revenge. As innocent Sara Bishop she'd paid dearly for freedom from her cruel, mocking family. As flame-haired, jade-eyed Sabre Wilde, she would scandalize Queen Elizabeth's court as she set out to seduce her unknown husband, become his mistress--and make him her slave. The Hawk... The Queen's favorite, called The Sea God, his white teeth flashed in his bronze face as his deep, virile voice boomed orders to his men. He branded Sabre with his searing kiss and his masterful touch, not even aware she was already his wife. Captain Shane Hawkhurst knew how to command, how to subdue and ravage an enemy, but was he prepared to be caught in passion's merciless snare by a fiery beauty who ruled his heart and inflamed his senses? From the Paperback edition.

Book Description: It is often said among the Yorubas of Nigeria that "charity begins at home." Dr. Olaiya Aina grew up in a village with his parents and grandparents. His grandmother and his Dad used to tell stories every evening, especially when the moon was bright. The series of children's stories that he grew up with and knows today were mostly told by them. "The Boy, the Dove, and the Hawk" is the story of a crippled, blind boy named Baoku. One day, he is offered the chance to have his sight restored by a hawk if he gives him the dove to eat. But that same day, the dove offers to give him the power to walk again if he saves his life. Now, Baoku must make the difficult decision of which means more to him-to walk again, or to see again. He asks his friends what he should do, but his friends can't help him make that decision. Will Baoku make the right decision? "The Boy, the Dove, and the Hawk" is a cautionary tale that will challenge children to rely on their own intelligence, rather than trying to rely on their friends or other people to make life-changing decisions.
