Joe Mondragon, 36, is a feisty hustler with a talent for trouble who slams his battered pickup to a stop, tugs on his gumboots, and marches into an arid patch of ground.

Tragedy and farce : how the American media sell wars, spin elections, and destroy democracy by John Nichols ( Book )
4 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 931 libraries worldwide
"In this book, John Nichols and Robert W. McChesney, two of the country's leading media analysts and founders of the national media reform group Free Press, dissect the abysmal coverage of the Iraq War and the 2004 presidential election, showing how these media failures expose the decline in resources and standards for political journalism, the organized campaign by the political right to control the news cycle, and the ascendancy of infotainment. Tragedy and Farce helps us to navigate among swift boats and Humvees, from the machinations of the Sinclair Broadcasting Group to the dismissals of the Downing Street memo. Ultimately, Nichols and McChesney argue that the media crisis is not due to incompetent or corrupt journalists but to corrupt policy making that has allowed the media to become the private domain of billionaire investors and massive corporations. In our highly concentrated media system it has become commercially and politically irrational to do the kind of journalism a self-governing society requires."--BOOK JACKET.

George W. Bush may hold the title of Commander-in-Chief, but real power is in the hands of Richard Bruce Cheney, a remarkably unexamined and--as this book reveals--extremist politician. Dick Cheney staffed the White House, sets energy policy, guided the nation into war with Iraq, and, working closely with Karl Rove, oversees the political infrastructure that allows corporate interests and the religious right to control lawmaking, regulation, and the selection of judges. Here is the first biography of the most powerful vice president in American history.--From publisher description.

The genius of impeachment : the founders' cure for royalism by John Nichols ( Book )
4 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 468 libraries worldwide
The founders of our country were convinced that impeachment was so essential a component of democracy that it is mentioned specifically six times in our constitution. When the usual checks and balances fail to reign in tyrannical leadership, impeachment is the tool available to restore that balance. Thomas Jefferson said, "I know of no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves, and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them but to inform their discretion by education." This book provides an excellent reminder of the history and uses of impeachment both in the United States and elsewhere, detailing its derailment by legislators who think it better to "wait for the next election" or a populace unwilling to support such an action against a popular leader. Nichols warns that an expansion of executive powers in one administration tends to permit---
Writers dreaming ( Book )
2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 460 libraries worldwide
On a spring morning in the early seventies, William Styron woke to the resonant, lingering image of a woman he had known before. She was, he recalls, "entering the hallway of this humble boarding house in Flatbush with a book under her arm, looking very beautiful in the middle of summer with a sort of summer dress on and her arm bared and the tattoo visible. . . . I was seized by this absolute sense of necessity - I had to write the book." Styron immediately went to his studio and, abandoning the novel he had been struggling to complete, wrote the opening paragraphs of Sophie's Choice.

The "S" word : a short history of an American tradition-- socialism by John Nichols ( Book )
3 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 402 libraries worldwide
A short, sharp, irreverent rejoinder to right-wing red-baiting. A few months before the 2010 midterms, Newt Gingrich described the socialist infiltration of American government and media as "even more disturbing than the threats from foreign terrorists." John Nichols offers an unapologetic retort to the return of red-baiting in American political life -- arguing that socialism has a long, proud, American history. Tom Paine was enamored of early socialists, Horace Greeley employed Karl Marx as a correspondent, and Helen Keller was an avowed socialist. The "S" Word gives Americans back a crucial aspect of their past and makes a forthright case for socialist ideas today"--Publisher's description.
