Haig, the General's progress by Roger Morris( Book )

9 editions published in 1982 in English and Undetermined and held by 925 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the story of an ascent to power, with no pretense to complete biography. My purpose is to draw an informed, thoughtful portrait of the relatively unknown man who became Secretary of State in the Reagan administration and who moved through the highest levels of American government for more than a decade before. It is a portrayal of who he is, what he represents, and how he rose to high office; of the forces and experiences that shaped him; of the quality of his mind and of his public service; of what we might expect of a career and potential still unfinished. The narrative traces the general's progress to the Senate confirmation in early 1981, and deals only incidentally with the events of the first year in the State Department. - Preface

Las Vegas : Geld - Macht - Politik by Sally Denton( Book )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in German and English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Las Vegas'the name evokes images of divorce and dice, prostitutes and payoffs, gangsters and glitz. But beneath it all is a sordid history that is much more insidious and far-reaching than ever imagined. Now, at the dawn of the new century, this neon maelstrom of ruthlessness and greed stands to not as an aberrant "sin city," but as a natural outgrowth of the corruption and worship of money that have come to permeate American life. The Money and the Power is the most comprehensive look yet at Las Vegas and its breadth of influence. Based on five years of intensive research and interviewing, Sally Denton and Roger Morris reveal the city's historic network of links to Wall Street, international drug traffickers, and the CIA. In doing so, they expose the disturbing connections amongst politicians, businessmen, and the criminals that harness these illegal activities. Through this lucid and gripping indictment of Las Vegas, Morris and Denton uncover a national ethic of exploitation, violence, and greed, and provide a provocative reinterpretation of twentieth-century American history.

Silent coup : the removal of a president by Len Colodny( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Silent Coup is the excavation of some vital hidden history, of a national scandal within a scandal, and of a literary-journalistic atrocity of revealing while concealing. You are about to read the story of a coup d'etat, of all political events the most dramatic, suspenseful, sinister. To make the subject even more ominous, this is an American coup, albeit carried out (for a change) in the United States itself
