A powerful account of eighteen months in the lives of three soldiers and a journalist, all patients in Ward 57, Walter Reed's amputee wing. Time magazine's Michael Weisskopf, an embedded reporter, was riding through Baghdad in the back of a U.S. Army Humvee, when he heard a metallic thunk. Looking down, he saw a small, dark object rolling inches from his feet. He reached down and took it in his hand. Then everything went black. Weisskopf lost his hand and was sent for treatment to Walter Reed Medical Center. There he crossed paths with three soldiers whose stories he learned during months in the ward. Alongside these men, he navigated the bewildering process of recovery and reentry, and began reconciling life before that day in Baghdad with everything that would follow his release. This chronicle of devastation and recovery is an affecting portrait of the private aftermath of combat casualties.--From publisher description.
Tell Newt to shut up! : prizewinning Washington Post journalists reveal how reality gagged the Gingrich revolution by David Maraniss ( Book )
8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 506 libraries worldwide
Speaker Newt Gingrich and his troops promised a revolution when they seized power in January 1995. The year that followed was one of the most fascinating and tumultuous in modern American history. After stunning early success with the Contract with America, the Republicans began to lose momentum; by year's end Gingrich was isolated and uncertain, and his closest allies were telling him to shut up. Here is an unprecedented, fly-on-the-wall look at the successes, sellouts, and perhaps fatal mistakes of Newt Gingrich's Republican Revolution. Based on the award-winning Washington Post series that documented the Republicans' day-to-day attempts to revolutionize the American government, "Tell Newt to Shut Up!" gets to the heart of the political process.
