Ultimate sacrifice : John and Robert Kennedy, the plan for a coup in Cuba, and the murder of JFK by Lamar Waldron ( Book )
12 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 1,074 libraries worldwide
Cuba's number 2 official today--Commander Juan Almeida--was secretly working with JFK in November 1963 to overthrow Fidel. The US government recently revealed Almeida's work for JFK, allowing this updated edition to tell the full story for the first time (complete with new photos and documents). The authors obtained the story from almost two dozen associates of John and Robert Kennedy, starting in 1990 with Dean Rusk. Their accounts are supported by newly-released files at the National Archives. Almeida's "palace coup" was set for December 1, 1963. However, three Mafia bosses targeted by Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy used several CIA assets to infiltrate the secret plot and murder JFK. This resulted in cover-ups by officials like RFK and LBJ, to prevent the exposure of Almeida and a possible nuclear confrontation with the Soviets.--From publisher description.
Screwed : the undeclared war against the middle class--and what we can do about it by Thom Hartmann ( Book )
12 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 832 libraries worldwide
Air America radio host Thom Hartmann shows that, over the last twenty-five years, we've witnessed an undeclared war against the middle class. The so-called conservatives waging this war are only interested in conserving--and steadily increasing--heir own wealth and power. Hartmann shows how, under the guise of "freeing" the market, they've systematically dismantled the programs set up by both Republicans and Democrats to protect the middle class and have replaced them with policies that favor only the privileged few.
Unequal protection : the rise of corporate dominance and the theft of human rights by Thom Hartmann ( Book )
4 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 742 libraries worldwide
Thom Hartmann tells a startling story that will forever change your understanding of American history. The Fourteenth Amendment--created to grant basic rights to freed slaves--has been used by lawyers representing corporate interests to extend additional rights to businesses far more frequently than to freed slaves. In 1886, the Supreme Court ruled that corporations were "persons" entitled to the same rights granted to people. Since this ruling, America has lost the legal structures that allowed people to control corporate behavior. As a result, the largest transnational corporations fill a role today that has historically been filled by kings. They control most of the world's wealth and exert power over the lives of most of the world's citizens. They've become the rudder that steers the ship of much human experience, and they're steering it by their prime value--growth and profit at any expense--a value that has become destructive for life on Earth.--From publisher description.
The Edison gene : ADHD and the gift of the hunter child by Thom Hartmann ( Book )
5 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 689 libraries worldwide
Thomas Edison was expelled from school for behavior that today would label him as having Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD), but his mother understood how to salvage his self-esteem and prepare him for a lifetime of success. The creativity, impulsiveness, and distractibility that are characteristic of ADHD are not signs of a disorder at all, but instead are components of a highly adaptive and useful skill set that well served our hunting and gathering ancestors. In [this book, the author] shows that these characteristics have also been critical to the survival and development of our modern civilization and will be vital and necessary as humanity faces new challenges in the future. [The author] examines the latest discoveries confirming the existence of an ADHD gene and the global catastrophe 40,000 years ago that triggered its development. Citing examples of significant innovators in our modern era, he argues that the children who possess the "Edison gene" have neurology that is wired to give them brilliant success as innovators, inventors, explorers, and entrepreneurs. [He] offers parents concrete strategies for helping their Edison-gene children to reach their full potential and shows that rather than being "problems," such children are an important and vital gift to our society and the world.-Dust jacket.
Legacy of secrecy : the long shadow of the JFK assassination by Lamar Waldron ( Book )
8 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 619 libraries worldwide
John F. Kennedy's assassination launched a frantic search to find his killers. It also launched a flurry of covert actions by Lyndon Johnson, Robert F. Kennedy, and other top officials to hide the fact that in November 1963 the United States was on the brink of invading Cuba, as part of a JFK-authorized coup. The coup plan's exposure could have led to a nuclear confrontation with Russia, but the cover-up prevented a full investigation into Kennedy's assassination--a legacy of secrecy that would impact American politics and foreign policy for the next 45 years. It also allowed two men who confessed their roles in JFK's murder to be involved in the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, in 1968. Exclusive interviews and newly declassified files from the National Archives document in chilling detail how three mob bosses were able to prevent the truth from coming to light--until now.--Publisher description.

Unequal protection how corporations became "people"--and you can fight back by Thom Hartmann ( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 496 libraries worldwide
Synopsis: Unequal Protection: The Rise of Corporate Dominance and the Theft of Human Rights. Was the Boston Tea Party the first WTO-style protest against transnational corporations? Did Supreme Court sell out America's citizens in the nineteenth century, with consequences lasting to this day? Is there a way for American citizens to recover democracy of, by, and for the people? Thom Hartmann takes on these most difficult questions and tells a startling story that will forever change your understanding of American history. He begins by uncovering an original eyewitness account of the Boston Tea Party and demonstrates that it was provoked not by "taxation without representation" as is commonly suggested but by the specific actions of the East India Company, which represented the commercial interests of the British elite. Hartmann then describes the history of the Fourteenth Amendment created at the end of the Civil War to grant basic rights to freed slaves and how it has been used by lawyers representing corporate interests to extend additional rights to businesses far more frequently than to freed slaves. Prior to 1886, corporations were referred to in U S law as "artificial persons" but in 1886, after a series of cases brought by lawyers representing the expanding railroad interests, the Supreme Court ruled that corporations were "persons" and entitled to the same rights granted to people under the Bill of Rights. Since this ruling, America has lost the legal structures that allowed for people to control corporate behavior. As a result, the largest transnational corporations fill a role today that has historically been filled by kings. They control most of the world's wealth and exert power over the lives of most of the world's citizens. Their CEOs are unapproachable and live lives of nearly unimaginable wealth and luxury. They've become the rudder that steers the ship of much human experience, and they're steering it by their prime value-growth and profit and any expense-a value that has become destructive for life on Earth. This new feudalism was not what our Founders-Federalists and Democratic Republicans alike-envisioned for America. It's time for "we, the people" to take back our lives. Hartmann proposes specific legal remedies that could truly save the world from political, economic, and ecological disaster.
The last hours of ancient sunlight : the fate of the world and what we can do before it's too late by Thom Hartmann ( Book )

Rebooting the American dream 11 ways to rebuild our country by Thom Hartmann ( Book )
3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 480 libraries worldwide
At the core of each is a call to reclaim economic sovereignty and to wrest control of democracy back from the corporate powers that have hijacked both America and her citizens. What's particularly unique about Hartmann's solutions is that all have been proven to work. Every single one of his 11 steps either was historically part of what built Americars's greatness in the past (such as enforcing the Sherman Act and breaking up big corporations or returning to a tariff-based trade policy), or has worked well in other nations (like a national single-payer healthcare system -Medicare Part "E" for "Everybody"-or encouraging the growth of worker-owned cooperatives like the $6 billion Mondragon cooperative in Spain). Hartmann's solutions are essentially nonpartisan. Virtually all have been promoted at one time or another in American history by both political parties, although today most (but not all) fall into the realm of "progressive solutions." Both Ralph Nader and Pat Buchanan will find broad areas of agreement with this book. From addressing the problem of a warming globe to the death of America's middle class to the loss of our essential liberties, Rebooting The American Dreamshows how America can reclaim the vision of our Founders and the greatness we held both at home and abroad for over a century.
