Hot : living through the next fifty years on earth by Mark Hertsgaard( Book )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,628 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For twenty years, Mark Hertsgaard investigated climate change, but it took the birth of his daughter to bring the truth home. Another revelation came when an expert advised that, without doubt, global warming had arrived, more than a hundred years earlier than expected. Now, with his daughter and the next generation in mind, Hertsgaard delivers a resounding, motivating message of hope that will spur activism among parents, college students, and all readers. He gives specifics about what we can expect in the next fifty years: Chicago's climate transformed to resemble Houston's; the loss of cherished crops and luxuries, such as California wines; the redesign of U.S. cities. Addressing problems we'll face very soon and revealing where they'll be most serious, Hertsgaard offers "pictures" of what unbiased experts expect, and looks at who is taking wise, creative precautions. Hot is, finally, a book about how we'll survive.--Publisher description
On bended knee : the press and the Reagan presidency by Mark Hertsgaard( Book )

14 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... a history and an indictment of the relationship between the major news media and the Reagan Administration. Based on more than 175 interviews with most of the key figures in the White House and the press, and on a comprehensive analysis of newspaper and television coverage of such stories as the Iran-Contra Affair, the invasion of Grenada, the arms talks, and Reaganomics, this book exposes one of the great scandals of recent U.S. politics -- how the press, both through government manipulation and through voluntary self-censorship, abdicated its responsibility to report on what was really going on."--Jacket
The eagle's shadow : why America fascinates and infuriates the world by Mark Hertsgaard( Book )

24 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and Chinese and held by 1,209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Americans rarely used to think about the outside world. As the mightiest nation in history, the United States could do as it pleased. Now Americans have learned the hard way that what foreigners think matters. When terror struck on September 11, 2001, author Mark Hertsgaard was completing a trip around the world, gathering perceptions about America from people in fifteen countries. Whether sophisticated business leaders, starry-eyed teenagers, or Islamic fundamentalists, his subjects felt both admiring of and uneasy about the United States, enchanted yet bewildered, appalled yet envious." "This complex catalogue of impressions - good, bad, but never indifferent - is the departure point for a short, pointed essay in the tradition of Common Sense and Culture of Complaint. How can the world's most open society be so proud of its founding ideals yet so inconsistent in applying them? So loved for its pop culture but so resented for its high-handedness? Exploring such paradoxes, Hertsgaard exposes uplifting and uncomfortable truths that force natives and foreigners alike to see America with fresh eyes." ""Like it or not, America is the future," a European tells Hertsgaard. In a world growing more American by the day, The Eagle's Shadow is a major statement about and to the place (and people) everyone discusses but few understand."--Jacket

Bravehearts : whistle-blowing in the age of Snowden by Mark Hertsgaard( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Whistleblowers pay with their lives to save ours. When insiders like former NSA analyst Edward Snowden or ex-FBI agent Coleen Rowley or Big Tobacco truth-teller Jeffrey Wigand blow the whistle on high-level lying, lawbreaking or other wrongdoing--whether it's government spying, corporate murder or scientific scandal--the public benefits enormously. Wars are ended, deadly products are taken off the market, white-collar criminals are sent to jail. The whistleblowers themselves, however, generally end up ruined. Nearly all of them lose their jobs--and in many cases their marriages and their health--as they refuse to back down in the face of increasingly ferocious official retaliation. That moral stubbornness despite terrible personal cost is the defining DNA of whistleblowers. The public owes them more than we know."--Publisher information
