The Naming of the Dead (Inspector Rebus Novels) by Ian Rankin
The Naming of the Dead (Inspector Rebus Novels)

SOPHIA, September 18, 2007

Ian Rankin is the champ when it comes to connecting the personal and the political, and he outdoes himself here. Detective John Rebus, grieving over his brother's death, and his sidekick Siobhan Clarke, trying to protect her elderly parents while they protest at the 2005 G-8 summit in Edinburgh,simultaneously track down a sophisticated computer-savvy revenge killer and uncover official corruption. Character development and the historic settings are equally rich.

Impeach the President: The Case Against Bush and Cheney by Dr. Dennis D. Loo and Peter Phillips
Impeach the President: The Case Against Bush and Cheney

SOPHIA, July 4, 2007

No, George W. Bush has not committed an impeachable offense by saving Scooter Libby from jail time. The action is a perfectly legal presidential prerogative, although, as some have charged, it may be a quid pro quo to stop Libby from spilling Dick Cheney's beans on the savaging of Valerie Plame.
However, those who want to pursue impeachment will find much support in ?Impeach the President: The Case Against Bush And Cheney?.
Authors and editors Dennis Loo and Peter Phillips have gathered an impressive body of arguments for impeachment, from writers including Greg Palast and Dahr Jamail. The foreword is by historian Howard Zinn, who writes ?the present campaign for the impeachment of George W. Bush has the possibility of going beyond the previous experiences (of impeachment) by calling into question the fundamental thrust of American foreign policy, the class nature of national politics, and the corporate domination of the culture.?
