              A prize-winning historian presents a deeply learned and radically revisionist biography, arguing that the dictator's main strategic enemy, from the start of his political career in the 1920s, was not communism or the Soviet Union, but capitalism and the U.S.

              A deeply reported biography of the scandal-plagued Israeli Prime Minister, showing that we cannot understand Israel--its history, present, and future--without first understanding the life and worldview of the man who leads it Benjamin Netanyahu is embroiled in numerous scandals, ...all of his own making, and may soon be ousted from the office he has held longer than any prior Israeli Prime Minister outside of David Ben Gurion. But Bibi, as he is known by friend and foe alike, is no stranger to controversy. For many in Israel and elsewhere, he is an embarrassment, a threat to democracy, even a precursor to Donald Trump. He nevertheless continues to dominate Israeli public life--and he may yet survive his current crises, the most challenging of his career. How can we explain Netanyahu's rise, his hold on Israeli politics, and his outsized role on the world's stage? In Bibi, the Haaretz journalist Anshel Pfeffer argues that we must view Netanyahu as representing the triumph of the underdogs in the Zionist enterprise. Born in 1949, one year after the state of Israel itself, Netanyahu came of age in a nation dominated by liberal, secular Zionists. Yet Netanyahu's grandfather and father bequeathed to him a brand of Zionism integrating Jewish nationalism and religious traditionalism, and he identified with the groups at the margins of Israeli society: right-wing Revisionists, orthodox, Mizrahi Jews, and small-time professionals living in the new towns and cities dotting the Israeli landscape. Netanyahu cultivated each faction individually and then fused them into a coalition that has frequently proven unstoppable in Israeli politics. Netanyahu is also a child of America, where he spent many years as a young man, and where he learned the techniques of modern political campaigns as well as the necessity of controlling the media cycle. The product of the affluent East Coast Jewish community and the Reagan era, Netanyahu's politics and worldview were formed as much by American Co

              In pursuit of the story behind a beguiling drink Granville Greene embarks on a journey through the remote Mexican highlands to discover the histories and traditions behind this smoke-drenched agave distillate that has quickly become a craft cocktail darling, rivaling even its bet...ter-known cousin tequila. Greene visits the Zapotec, Mixtec, and Nahua communities, sipping rare, small-batch mezcals poured straight from the stills of mezcaleros who craft the drink using local agaves, family recipes, and production methods passed down through generations. A seasoned travel writer, Greene brings readers along on his captivating quest for the soul of the oldest distillate in The Americas, detailing the sights, smells, and intoxicating flavors of the mountainous Oaxaca and Guerrero states, their lively markets and rural distilleries. He turns his journalist s eye to the broader context of impoverished villages in a rapidly changing economic and political landscape, exploring the gold-rush style surge of single-village mezcals as luxury exports, and the subsequent overharvesting that threatens the diversity of wild agave crops in the region. Para todo mal mezcal, y para todo bien tambien! So goes the Mexican proverb: For everything bad mezcal, and for everything good as well!
