James Thomson Callender, the "scandalmonger" of the title, is an ambitious gossip-peddling editor secretly hired by Thomas Jefferson as a political weapon. After carefully damaging Alexander Hamilton's reputation, thereby paving the way for Jefferson's success, Callender is shunned by the very politicians on whose behalf he was jailed for sedition. Broke and betrayed, Callender seeks revenge by exposing an illicit affair between Jefferson and his slave Sally Hemmings, an accusation that ultimately cost Callender his career and would not be authenticated for two centuries. By using actual letters, records, and notes to re-create dialog and events, this work embodies historical fiction at its best, politics at its most intriguing, and our Founding Fathers at their most notorious. For those who think that Washington sex scandals and lurid journalism are recent developments, this novel will be a revelation, for it shows how media intrusiveness into private lives-and politicians' cool manipulation of the press-are practices as old as the Constitution+-+746213931513338ocn032276350book19950.17Safire, WilliamSleeper spyFictionA hunt by CIA and Russian agents for the old KGB's financial assets in the U.S., in possession of a spy whose name is unknown even to the Russians because files were destroyed.

In The First Dissident he shows how modern heroes have reshaped authority and history - and how individual citizens can, too - by following the courageous example of Job. The Bible's Book of Job is the story of a good man who dares to challenge God's judgment. Job's search for the answer to apparent injustice in God's design has stirred religious controversy and inspired readers for 2,500 years. Tennyson called the Book of Job "the greatest poem of ancient and modern times." D.H. Lawrence described it as "the story of your own soul." Safire's provocative exploration interprets Job - the innocent, angry sufferer - as the original dissenter. He shows how the biblical story can serve as inspiration and instruction manual for modern leaders and citizens, a primer on effective protest - when to dissent, how to force authority to listen, what kinds of persuasion work, why it is important for leaders to avoid isolation. He illuminates the timeless role of dissent in shaping power and influencing even the highest authority. And he draws modern-day parallels in the struggles of such human rights leaders as Mustapha Barzani, Martin Luther King, Jr., Natan Sharansky, Vaclav Havel, and others. The First Dissident is written in William Safire's insightful style of informal scholarship and is studded with anecdotes and examples drawn from Safire's wide-ranging political experience in the White House as speechwriter and in covering global politics for The New York Times. The First Dissident reaches across the millennia to show how any person, armed with a sense of righteousness, can engage with higher authority to protest unfair treatment - and thereby change the world11706ocn008033964book19820.25Safire, WilliamWhat's the good word?114231ocn000500661book19680.32Safire, WilliamThe new language of politics : an anecdotal dictionary of catchwords, slogans, and political usageDictionaries11399ocn028293725book19930.27Safire, WilliamSafire's new political dictionary : the definitive guide to the new language of politicsDictionaries10606ocn013095430book19860.24Safire, WilliamTake my word for it : more On languageIncludes material on slang, jargon, neologisms, and readers' letters9766ocn017301113book19880.23Safire, WilliamYou could look it up : more On language from William SafireA collection of 150 short essays from the author's weekly syndicated column, "On Language."9257ocn010374721book19840.25Safire, WilliamI stand corrected : more On language8457ocn020671805book19900.22LeadershipQuotations+-+39561132068397ocn054691636book20040.20Safire, WilliamThe right word in the right place at the right time : wit and wisdom from the popular "On language" column in The New York times magazinePresents selections from William Safire's "On Language" column which appears in "The New York Times Magazine," in which he discusses issues of vocabulary, speech, language, usage, and writing, and includes letters from readers+-+59979789258228ocn022734276book19910.24Safire, WilliamComing to termsSelections from the author's column, "On language," including letters to the author, which originally appeared in the New York times, 1986-19887705ocn008589842book19820.21Good adviceQuotations"More than 2,000 apt quotations to help you live your life," arranged alphabetically by subject+-+78293526057576ocn020723586book19900.19Safire, WilliamFumblerules : a lighthearted guide to grammar and good usageHumorA humorous guide to good grammar and style21ocn033397460book19951.00Brown, WinsomeMy word is my bond : on Safire's ethics of political languageCriticism, interpretation, etc11ocn070925269mix1.00Farago, LadislasLadislas Farago collectionRecords and correspondenceManuscripts, reviews, newspaper clippings, correspondence (1943-1980), and financial documents11ocn145776616fileEvans, RowlandRowland Evans Jr. and Robert D.
