But the wheels of justice are inexorably turning : Robert Mueller's 'witch hunt' haunts Trump every day, and other federal prosecutors are taking a deep dive into his personal affairs ... Week by week, as Trump becomes increasingly erratic, the question that lies at the heart of his tenure becomes ever more urgent : Will this most abnormal of presidencies at last reach the breaking point and implode? ...Siege provides an alarming and indelible portrait of a president like no other. Surrounded by enemies and blind to his peril, Trump is a raging, self-destructive inferno - and the most divisive leader in American history." -- From the container.

Beekeeper Holly McNee Kensen quietly lives in a world of her own on Sullivan's Island, tending her hives and working at the local island library. Holly calls her mother The Queen Bee because she's a demanding hulk of a woman. Her mother, a devoted hypochondriac, might be unaware that she's quite ill but that doesn't stop her from tormenting Holly. To escape the drama, Holly's sister Leslie married and moved away, wanting little to do with island life. Holly's escape is to submerge herself in the lives of the two young boys next door and their widowed father, Archie. Her world is upended when the more flamboyant Leslie returns and both sisters, polar opposites, fixate on what's happening in their neighbor's home. Is Archie really in love with that awful ice queen of a woman? If Archie marries her, what will become of his little boys? Restless Leslie is desperate for validation after her imploded marriage, squandering her favors on any and all takers. Their mother ups her game in an uproarious and theatrical downward spiral. Scandalized Holly is talking to her honey bees a mile a minute, as though they'll give her a solution to all the chaos. Maybe they will. Queen Bee is a classic Lowcountry Tale--warm, wise and hilarious, it roars with humanity and a dropperful of whodunit added for good measure by an unseen hand. In her twentieth novel, Dorothea Benton Frank brings us back to her beloved island with an unforgettable story where the Lowcountry magic of the natural world collides with the beat of the human heart." -- Provided by publisher.

cover image "When Valerie Jarrett interviewed a promising young lawyer named Michelle Robinson in July 1991 for a job in Chicago city government, neither knew that it was the first step on a path that would end in the White House. Jarrett soon became Michelle and Barack Obama's trusted personal adviser and family confidante; in the White House, she was known as the one who "got" him and helped him engage his public life. Jarrett joined the White House team on January 20, 2009 and departed with the First Family on January 20, 2017, and she was in the room--in the Oval Office, on Air Force One, and everywhere else--when it all happened. No one has as intimate a view of the Obama Years, nor one that reaches back as many decades, as Jarrett shares in Finding My Voice. Born in Iran (where her father, a doctor, sought a better job than he could find in segregated America), Jarrett grew up in Chicago in the 60s as racial and gender barriers were being challenged. A single mother stagnating in corporate law, she found her voice in Harold Washington's historic administration, where she began a remarkable journey, ultimately becoming one of the most visible and influential African-American women of the twenty-first century. From her work ensuring equality for women and girls, advancing civil rights, reforming our criminal justice system, and improving the lives of working families, to the real stories behind some of the most stirring moments of the Obama presidency, Jarrett shares her forthright, optimistic perspective on the importance of leadership and the responsibilities of citizenship in the twenty-first century, inspiring readers to lift their own voices." --Provided by publisher.

cover imageJared Yates Sexton alternates between an examination of his own working class upbringing and historical, psychological, and sociological sources that examine the genesis of toxic masculinity and its consequences for society. Sexton explores how we teach boys what's expected of men in America, and the long-term effects of that socialization--including depression, shorter lives, misogyny, and suicide. He also turns his keen eye to the establishment of the racist patriarchal structure which has favored white men, and investigates the personal and societal dangers of such outdated definitions of manhood.

Chasing Cosby [sound recording (CD)] : the downfall of America's dad / Nicole Weisensee Egan.

  • 10 July 2019
cover imageBill Cosby's decades-long career as a sweater-wearing, wholesome TV dad came to a swift and stunning end on April 26, 2018, when he was convicted of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand. The mounting allegations against Bill Cosby--more than 60 women have come forward to accuse him of similar crimes--and his ultimate conviction were a shock to Americans, who wanted to cleave to their image of Cosby as a pudding-pop hero. Award-winning journalist and former People magazine senior writer Nicki Weisensee Egan was the first reporter to dig into the story when Constand went to the police in 2005. Other news organizations looked away, but Egan doggedly investigated the case, developing ties with entrenched sources and discovering incriminating details that would ultimately come to influence the prosecution. In her debut book, Chasing Cosby, Egan shares her firsthand account of Cosby's 13-year run from justice. She tells us how Cosby planned and executed his crimes, and how Hollywood alliances and law enforcement knew what Cosby was doing but did nothing to stop him. A veteran crime reporter, Egan also explores the cultural and social issues that influenced the case, delving into the psychological calculations of a serial predator and into the psyche of a nation that fervently wanted to put their faith in the innocence of "American's Dad." Rich in character and rife with dramatic revelations about popular culture, media power, and our criminal system, Egan's account will inform and fascinate readers with its candid telling of humanity's most enduring tale: the rise and fall of a cultural icon.

How to raise a boy [sound recording (CD)] : the power of connections to build good men / Michael C. Reichert.

  • 10 July 2019
cover imageMichael C. Reichert draws on his thirty years of experience researching the process by which boys become men to provide a roadmap for parents and educators who hope to help the boys they love and care about grow into strong, emotionally intelligent, and compassionate men. In this groundbreaking book, a leading psychologist and researcher of the journey from boyhood to manhood reveals the vital role that parents, teachers, coaches and other adult role models can play in creating a "safety net" for boys so that they can develop in positive ways, both emotionally and socially. With the groundbreaking Real Boys in 1998, William Pollack inaugurated a wave of books that challenged age-old conventions about how boys become men. Over the last twenty years, an explosion of new studies has expanded our knowledge about how boys think and feel. Yet parents express more anxiety than ever about raising sons. In recent studies, expecting parents say they prefer having a girl by more than two to one. Parents' angst reflects both the shifting sands of the female world and the understanding that old paradigms, however they are repackaged or updated, alone will not lead to their sons' success. A new boyhood is called for--and parents, teachers and others are desperately looking for direction. The New Boyhood provides those who care for young men ages 10-18 with the latest insights from psychology and neuroscience to give us the tools to help build good men.
