In this riveting novel by two of Washington's ultimate insiders, the chain of command is threatened when political power is bought in blood. Secret Service Agent Michael Delaney has devoted his entire career to protecting America's highest ranking elected officials. But when his gun is found next to the bloody corpse of the President of the United States, he becomes the prime suspect in a brutal assassination that stuns the nation. As the vice president assumes control of the shaken government, a series of violent terrorist attacks is launched in cities across America, causing the government to take ever more desperate steps to keep the population safe. Shockingly, the resourceful enemy they are fighting comes not from another country but from within America's borders. Unsure who he can trust, Delaney finds an unexpected ally in Mary Campos, the president's newly appointed terrorism czar. With each passing hour, the potential for catastrophe grows and the web of evidence implicating Delaney in the plot grows more convincing. It will take all his cunning and years of special training to find out who is framing him for the murder of a president. Not only are his reputation and liberty at stake but the liberty of all Americans. Former Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger and acclaimed writer Peter Schweizer take readers deep inside the U.S. government's secret halls of power. From the Pentagon to Camp David, from the White House Situation Room to the inner sanctums of the FBI, the authors share their intimate knowledge of Washington's behind-the-scenes world to spin an explosive tale of intrigue that is chillingly real and breathtakingly suspenseful

The next war by Caspar W Weinberger ( Book )
9 editions published between 1996 and 2003 in English and held by 973 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In The Next War, former U.S. Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger and bestselling author Peter Schweizer dramatize the outbreak, progress, and outcome of major wars most likely to occur over the next dozen years.

Their protrayal of both American and foreign weapon systems reflects current trends and the findings of military research. The Next War does not purport to predict the future.

For more than seventy years, the Walt Disney Company has been an icon of wholesome family entertainment. Now Disney is under attack by family and religious organizations. Are the complaints hysterical censorship, or has Disney really lost its way? Investigative journalists Peter Schweizer and Rochelle Schweizer set out to find the answer. Exclusive interviews with Disney employees, internal corporate documents, and law enforcement records reveal a story of a great American institution corrupted by greed and perverted by the lust for power - and even more bizarre vices. The Schweizers reveal: how Walt Disney put safety first, but the current management allows Disney World to have an injury rate twice the industry average - for money; how Disney became a partner in the nation's largest pay-per-view pornography distributor; Disney World's rampant pedophile and sexual abuser problem - and how the company prefers cover-ups to simple and inexpensive solutions; the weird message Disney sends when employees are caught peeping on - even filming - coworkers and guests in their dressing room; how Disney thwarts the efforts of local law enforcement at its theme parks; and how Disney licensees have been repeatedly charged with violating federal child labor laws
