Courtesy of the ACLU, I've got a copy of Bill of Wrongs: The Executive Branch's Assault on America's Fundamental Rights that I'll do a review of as soon as I can read it (which will be probably later this week after I finish up the books I've already started.) In her final work, Molly Ivins, along with coauthor Lou Dubose, explain the danger democracy faces from an executive run wild by personalizing the threat with specific instances of abuses that have already occurred.
Next, I'm going to try something different and serialize a review of The J Curve: A New Way to Understand Why Nations Rise and Fall by Ian Bremmer. Not sure when I'll get started on that.
