The Chronicles of Kibblestan (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: A Fantastical Adventure, with a Patriotic Twist

When Ellis gets lost in the creepy forest behind his house, a mysterious light draws his attention. He steps into the light, bringing his anxiety-prone dachshund and followed by one very hyper mouse. Together, they find themselves trapped in the dark, ominous world of Kibblestan, a land full of bizarre canines, over-sized rats and small creatures called Petikins. It is also a land that is under attack, by grisly Snotlins who destroy everything in their path. All Ellis wants is to find a way back home, but when he meets a young Petikin who's lost his family, his offer to help sends him on a harrowing journey that will uncover many truths--truths about the Snotlins, truths about the missing family and truths that will lead Kibblestan to a revolution and force Ellis to make the most painful decision of his life.

Praise for The Chronicles of Kibblestan: Revolution

"Loved, loved, loved this book! Ms. Rand writes a fantasy brimming with humor and with heart. The themes of loyalty, bravery, and of democracy are seamlessly woven into the story, and even the fantastical characters, while endlessly entertaining, also have quite believable personalities. Fans will be eagerly awaiting the next Kibblestan adventure. Highly recommended."

Missy Brewer, school librarian

"In a society that screams 'surrender', Andrea Rand's series of stories cry 'empower'. Fun and heartwarming, the Chronicles of Kibblestan is the type of series I hope to read to my own children one day to ensure their creativity is nurtured and their love of Liberty is abundant."

Remso Martinez, host of The Remso Republic

"Andrea Rand can really write! She needs to make this into a movie!"

Remi, age 8

Obama's Odyssey (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: Obama's Odyssey: The 2008 Race for the White House is a reporter's-eye view of events unfolding in 2007 and 2008 as Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John Edwards, Joe Biden, Christopher Dodd, Bill Richardson (et al.) jockeyed for position for the Democratic nomination for president, while John McCain, Rick Santorum, Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney and others attempted to wrest control of the Republican nomination for their party. All ran for President in a wide-open free-for-all following the end of George W. Bush's 8 years in office. Author Connie (Corcoran) Wilson, a veteran reporter for five newspapers and numerous blogs, followed the candidates from the Iowa caucuses all the way through to the convention (Volume I) and, after that, from the convention through the tumultuous presidential campaign itself (Volume II), until President Barack Obama's Inauguration as the 44th President of the United States in January of 2009 (covered in Volume II). Writing as a member of the Yahoo Content Contributors' Network, retired sixty-something schoolteacher Wilson set off on an adventurous odyssey of her own that earned her the title 2008 Content Producer of the Year for Politics with 1,000 articles that garnered over three million hits. Filing three articles daily from the field, her adventures inside the Democratic National Convention in Denver, the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, the Ron Paul Rally for the Republic in Minneapolis, the Belmont Town Hall Meeting in Nashville or elsewhere (Florida, Nevada, etc.) are detailed, insightful and, at times, humorous. The parallels and insights gleaned from following the presidential campaign in 2008 provide useful background material for the presidential race of 2016 now underway--with some of the same candidates that ran 8 years ago in the field again today. Never one to ignore an amusing anecdote or photo, the quotes, facts and polling data are only one small component of an engrossing read with multiple pictures that sum up the end of an era in presidential campaigns as the use of the Internet and the increasing importance of money in campaigning are clearly cataloged. An entertaining, informative and relevant slice of recent history.

Forbidden Bookshelf (27 Book Series)
From Book 1:
A look at America in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and the capitalists who changed the world—setting the stage for the most devastating global financial collapse in history—from “a diligent and perceptive reporter” (Forbes).

In the decades following the Civil War, America entered an era of unprecedented corporate expansion, with ultimate financial power in the hands of a few wealthy industrialists who exploited the system for everything it was worth. The Rockefellers, Fords, Morgans, and Vanderbilts were the “lords of creation” who, along with like-minded magnates, controlled the economic destiny of the country, unrestrained by regulations or moral imperatives. Through a combination of foresight, ingenuity, ruthlessness, and greed, America’s giants of industry remolded the US economy in their own image. They established their power and authority, ensuring that they—and they alone—would control the means of production, transportation, energy, and commerce—creating the conditions for the stock market collapse of 1929 and the Great Depression that followed.

As modern society continues to be affected by wealth inequality and cycles of boom and bust, it’s as important as ever to understand the origins of financial disaster, and the policies, practices, and people who bring them on. The Lords of Creation, first published when the catastrophe of the 1930s was still painfully fresh, is a fascinating story of bankers, railroad tycoons, steel magnates, speculators, scoundrels, and robber barons. It is a tale of innovation and shocking exploitation—and a sobering reminder that history can indeed repeat itself.

Roosevelt (2 Book Series)
From Book 1:
“A brilliant full-length portrait of Franklin Roosevelt the politician”—the first in an award-winning two-volume biography (The Christian Science Monitor).

Franklin Delano Roosevelt was the longest serving president in United States history, reshaping the country during the crises of the Great Depression and World War II. But before his ascension to the presidency, FDR laid the groundwork for his unprecedented run with decades of canny political maneuvering and steady consolidation of power.
 
In this remarkable New York Times–bestselling biography, Pulitzer Prize–winning historian James MacGregor Burns traces FDR’s rise and the peculiar blend of strength and cunning that made him such a uniquely transformative figure. Weaving together lively narrative and impressive scholarship, Burns reconstructs his youth and education at Groton and Harvard, his relationships with his cousins Theodore and Eleanor, his immersion in New York State politics, and his rise to national prominence, all the way through his first two terms as president, which saw the historic New Deal take hold and the drumbeats of World War II begin.
 
Originally published in 1956, The Lion and the Fox was among the first studies of Roosevelt—and it remains a landmark record of his ambitions, talents, and flaws. Hailed by the New York Times as “a sensitive, shrewd, and challenging book” and by Newsweek as “a case study unmatched in American political writings,” Burns’s stunning achievement is the life story of a fascinating political figure.

Joachim Gauck (Reihe in 2 Bänden)
Aus Band 1: Am 23. März 2012 wurde der ostdeutsche Ex-Pfarrer Joachim Gauck als elfter Bundespräsident vereidigt. Wenige Wochen zuvor war sein Vorgänger Christian Wulff von einer Phalanx höchst tugendhafter bundesdeutscher Medien aus dem Amt gejagt worden. Von den meisten Vertretern ebendieser Medienhäuser wird uns nun Joachim Gauck als charismatischer Bürgerrechtler, diplomatisch versierter Versöhner, erfolgreicher Stasi-Jäger und moralisch integrer Verfechter der Freiheit präsentiert.
Klaus Blessing und Manfred Manteufel melden an dieser Einschätzung deutliche Zweifel an. Unter Zuhilfenahme von Zitaten, Dokumenten und Zeitzeugen thematisieren sie neben anderem Gaucks fragwürdiges Verhältnis zum Faschismus, seine problematischen Äußerungen zur deutsch-polnischen Grenze wie auch seinen strittigen Umgang mit der eigenen Biographie. Es stellt sich die Frage: Ist der Neue der rechte Mann im Amt?

The Wilson Files (3 Book Series)
From Book 1: Granny Clampett, on the TV sitcom The Beverly Hillbillies, described the War Between the States as “when the Yankees invaded America” and, indeed, it was!

Their invasion of America, however, goes back much farther than the conflict of 1861-1865. It began as soon as they dropped their anchor in Plymouth Bay. Since that time, they have meddled, cheated, and lied their way into every nook and cranny of American life.

The Southern people warned others about the radical utopians of New England, and even went to war to get away from them, but to no avail. Now all Americans, not just Southerners, are subject to the whims of “those people” and their never ending mission to recreate, not only America, but the entire world in their bizarre, sanctimonious image.

Dr. Clyde Wilson, in this first installment of The Wilson Files, takes the Yankee problem head-on. After decades of historical research and personal observation, he exposes and explains these pesky purveyors of mischief and mayhem!

If you want to understand America, American History, and the upside-down dystopian nightmare in which we all live, you have to understand the problem.

We do not have an economic problem, a race problem, a class problem, a gender problem, a toilet access problem, a drug problem, a gun problem, or any other ideological or social problem at the root of America’s dysfunctional anti-culture – we have a Yankee problem!
