📒The Devil S Chessboard ✍ David Talbot
📝The Devil s Chessboard Book Synopsis : An explosive, headline-making portrait of Allen Dulles, the man who transformed the CIA into the most powerful—and secretive—colossus in Washington, from the founder of Salon.com and author of the New York Times bestseller Brothers. America’s greatest untold story: the United States’ rise to world dominance under the guile of Allen Welsh Dulles, the longest-serving director of the CIA. Drawing on revelatory new materials—including newly discovered U.S. government documents, U.S. and European intelligence sources, the personal correspondence and journals of Allen Dulles’s wife and mistress, and exclusive interviews with the children of prominent CIA officials—Talbot reveals the underside of one of America’s most powerful and influential figures. Dulles’s decade as the director of the CIA—which he used to further his public and private agendas—were dark times in American politics. Calling himself “the secretary of state of unfriendly countries,” Dulles saw himself as above the elected law, manipulating and subverting American presidents in the pursuit of his personal interests and those of the wealthy elite he counted as his friends and clients—colluding with Nazi-controlled cartels, German war criminals, and Mafiosi in the process. Targeting foreign leaders for assassination and overthrowing nationalist governments not in line with his political aims, Dulles employed those same tactics to further his goals at home, Talbot charges, offering shocking new evidence in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. An exposé of American power that is as disturbing as it is timely, The Devil’s Chessboard is a provocative and gripping story of the rise of the national security state—and the battle for America’s soul.

📒De Witte Weg ✍ Edmund de Waal
📝De witte weg Book Synopsis : In De witte weg verteld Edmund de Waal de geschiedenis van het materiaal dat hem als keramist al zijn hele leven fascineert. Door te reizen naar de plekken waar porselein werd uitgevonden, vervaardigd, verfijnd, verzameld en begeerd, probeert hij de aantrekkingskracht te doorgronden van wat ooit bekendstond als ‘het witte goud’. Hij bezoekt de drie landen – China, Duitsland en Engeland – die bepalend zijn geweest bij de ontdekking, de verspreiding en de popularisering van de techniek om uit klei keramiek te maken. Zijn zoektocht voert hem ook verder de wereld over: hij doet de zijderoute aan, bezoekt de paleizen van Versailles en Venetië, strijkt neer in Delft, schrijft over de Cherokees in North Carolina, vertelt de familiegeschiedenis van de Wedgwoods en slaat de zwarte bladzijden van de twintigste eeuw niet over: Himmler leidde zijn gasten rond in zijn eigen porseleinfabriek in Dachau, die werd bevolkt door zorgvuldig geselecteerde kampgevangenen. De geschiedenis van porselein, zo leert De Waal, is meer dan een verhaal van serviezen en beeldjes, van elegante gebruiksvoorwerpen en gewilde verzamelaarsobjecten. De witte weg is de meeslepende kroniek van een persoonlijke en alomtegenwoordige bewondering voor een procedé waarin alchemie, kunst, rijkdom, handwerk en schoonheid samenkomen.
📒Kennedy And Oswald ✍ Judyth Baker
📝Kennedy and Oswald Book Synopsis : Unraveling the many strands of hidden history behind the assassination of President Kennedy is not an easy task. Co-authors Baker and Schwartz guide us toward the conclusion that ultimately, the motivation was total governmental control, a coup d'état, changing us from a democratic republic to a oligopoly – a corporatocracy. With help from new witnesses regarding the "Crime of the Century," we are led to the realization that the "War of Terror" and the Patriot Act were predesigned to undermine our US Constitution and our Bill of Rights. The very moment Kennedy died our own government turned against "We the People." Baker and Schwartz provide a compelling narrative showing Oswald's innocence and a condemnation of the conspirators who planned and carried out the assassination of our 35th president and our Republic.
