            In this full-throttle playbook for 2020, Rick Wilson, longtime Republican strategist and #1 New York Times bestselling author of Everything Trump Touches Dies, warns Democrats not to make the mistakes that could re-elect the worst president in history. He argues that Trump is as ...bad as we thought, and worse. His re-election would be a disaster for democracy, for America, and the world as we know it. A thirty-year veteran of national political campaigns and one of the most famous ad makers in politics, Rick Wilson brings his experience, insight, knowledge, and signature humour to the 2020 race, just in time to save the Democrats from their worst instincts. He hammers Trump's destructive and dangerous first term, outlining the mistakes both the Republicans and Hillary Clinton made running against Trump in 2016. He shows exactly how the campaign for Trump will operate, and how Trump will use his social media power against the Democrats. Hope is not lost - if Democrats listen and learn from Wilson. Drawing on his time as a political guru, and infused with his cutting, witty commentary, Running Against the Devil shows Democrats how to deploy what they've learned in the past two years, what the president's weak spots are, what the rules of the 2020 election reality show will be, and where and how to reach the all-important swing voters. Democrats must use every trick in the political playbook in the 2020 election, and Wilson knows where the bodies are buried. A sharply funny and brutally honest assessment of Trump's abysmal, destructive record and of the pitfalls for Democrats that lie ahead, Running Against the Devil lays out a no-nonsense, no-holds-barred roadmap to saving America from Donald Trump. The stakes are too high to do anything less.

            Politico Magazine's chief political correspondent provides a rollicking insider's look at the making of the modern Republican Party--how a decade of cultural upheaval, populist outrage, and ideological warfare made the GOP vulnerable to a hostile takeover from the unlikeliest of ...insurgents: Donald J. Trump. The 2016 election was a watershed for the United States. But, as Tim Alberta explains in American Carnage, to understand Trump's victory is to view him not as the creator of this era of polarization and bruising partisanship, but rather as its most manifest consequence. American Carnage is the story of a president's rise based on a country's evolution and a party's collapse. As George W. Bush left office with record-low approval ratings and Barack Obama led a Democratic takeover of Washington, Republicans faced a moment of reckoning: They had no vision, no generation of new leaders, and no energy in the party's base. Yet Obama's forceful pursuit of his progressive agenda, coupled with the nation's rapidly changing cultural and demographic landscape, lit a fire under the right, returning Republicans to power and inviting a bloody struggle for the party's identity in the post-Bush era. The factions that emerged--one led by absolutists like Jim Jordan and Ted Cruz, the other led by pragmatists like John Boehner and Mitch McConnell--engaged in a series of devastating internecine clashes and attempted coups for control. With the GOP's internal fissures rendering it legislatively impotent, and that impotence fueling a growing resentment toward the political class and its institutions, the stage was set for an outsider to crash the party. When Trump descended a gilded escalator to announce his run in the summer of 2015, the candidate had met the moment. Only by viewing Trump as the culmination of a decade-long civil war inside the Republican Party--and of the parallel sense of cultural, socioeconomic, and technological disruption during that period--can we appreciate ho

            "This biography of Tariana Turia sees family members, iwi leaders, social justice advocates and politicians share their experiences of this remarkable woman. While parliament was not originally part of her life plan, Tariana Turia was involved in many community initiatives. A tur...ning point came in 1995, when Tariana's leadership was evident in the reoccupation of Pakaitore. Here was a woman with the courage to care, the determination to speak up and a deep commitment to whanau. Inevitably, she was invited to stand in the 1996 general election. In her eighteen years as an MP, she advanced thinking in the disability area, advocated for tobacco reform and spoke out about sexual abuse, violence and racism. She also led the Whanau Ora initiative. In 2004, she crossed the floor, leading to the birth of the Maori Party"--Publisher information.
