Divided We Fall
David French warns of the potential dangers to the country—and the world—if we don’t summon the courage to reconcile our political differences. Two decades into the 21st Century, the U.S. is less united than at any time in our history since the Civil War. We are more diverse in our beliefs and culture than ever before. But red and blue states, secular and religious groups, liberal and conservative idealists, and Republican and Democratic representatives all have one thing in common: each believes their distinct cultures and liberties are being threatened by an escalating violent opposition. This polarized tribalism, espoused by the loudest, angriest fringe extremists on both the left and the right, dismisses dialogue as appeasement; if left unchecked, it could very well lead to secession. An engaging mix of cutting edge research and fair-minded analysis, Divided We Fall is an unblinking look at the true dimensions and dangers of this widening ideological gap, and what could happen if we don't take steps toward bridging it. French reveals chilling, plausible scenarios of how the United States could fracture into regions that will not only weaken the country but destabilize the world. But our future is not written in stone. By implementing James Madison’s vision of pluralism—that all people have the right to form communities representing their personal values—we can prevent oppressive factions from seizing absolute power and instead maintain everyone’s beliefs and identities across all fifty states. Reestablishing national unity will require the bravery to commit ourselves to embracing qualities of kindness, decency, and grace towards those we disagree with ideologically. French calls on all of us to demonstrate true tolerance so we can heal the American divide. If we want to remain united, we must learn to stand together again.

Home and Away
David French, potential independent candidate for the 2016 presidential election, and his wife Nancy deliver a powerful story of what happens when a person--or rather, a family--answers the call to serve their nation. David French picked up the newspaper in the comfort of his penthouse in Philadelphia, and read about a soldier - father of two - who was wounded in Iraq. Immediately, he was stricken with a question: Why him and not me? David was a 37-year-old father of two, a Harvard Law graduate and president of a free speech organization. In other words, he was used to pushing pencils, not toting M16s. His wife Nancy was raising two children and writing from home. She was worrying about field trips and playdates, not about her husband going to war. HOME AND AWAY chronicles not just a soldier at war, but a family at war - a husband in Iraq, a wife and children at home, greeting each day with hope and fear, facing the challenge with determination, tears, and more than a little joy.

Fighting EOKA
Drawing upon a wide range of unpublished sources, including files from the recently-released Foreign and Commonwealth Office 'migrated archive', Fighting EOKA is the first full account of the operations of the British security forces on Cyprus in the second half of the 1950s. It shows how between 1955 and 1959 these forces tried to defeat the Greek Cypriot paramilitary organisation, EOKA, which was fighting to bring about enosis, that is the union between Cyprus and Greece. By tracing the evolving pattern of EOKA violence and the responses of the police, the British army, the civil administration on the island, and the minority Turkish Cypriot community, David French explains why the British could contain the military threat posed by EOKA, but could not eliminate it. The result was that by the spring of 1959 a political stalemate had descended upon Cyprus, and none of the contending parties had achieved their full objectives. Greek Cypriots had to be content with independence rather than enosis. Turkish Cypriots, who had hoped to see the island partitioned on ethnic lines, were given only a share of power in the government of the new Republic, and the British, who had hoped to retain sovereignty over the whole of the island, were left in control of just two military enclaves.

You Can't Trust Your Own Mind
In the cycles of the great season of creativity, we are sometimes given a rare and precious gift. This season, that gift is You Can't Trust Your Own Mind, by David French PhD., a book about how to excavate your deep, true identity and stop the fear and alienation automatically and reactively imposed by the mind. Inspired by discipline, experience, understanding, and compassion, his words embrace a deeper truth with the reader and lead to common ground where we can all see what is real and what is not: “myself and the machine”, “your self and the machine”. With his self-disclosing style, he shows us how to find emotional shelter when we are injured: how to be truthful when we want to lie; how to build trust when we feel alone, and misunderstood. He helps us discover triggers that alarm the machine and cause swift destructive actions. He finds the power concealed within our own vulnerability, and gives us the courage to own our own pain. He gives us tools for more satisfying relationships, hope for self fulfillment, and permission to be who we are without games, fears, and self-sabotaging rituals of the ancient reactive “machine”. He shows each of us how to accept the “machine” that vigilantly and perpetually serves us with a singular directive: to monitor, protect, and destroy all perceived threats, before the deep sacred self is even aware of them. What others are saying about this book: Through Dr. French's Personal balance Therapy, he brings together all the parts of what makes each one of us unique, and sets the reader on the path of wholeness. - D.C. Hadden, Psy.D., Licensed Clinical Psychologist This book can save ones sanity, relationships, maybe even one's life. Patients of mine commonly arrive in a state of despair and depression, losing all hope, faith, trust and love. Readers may be skeptical to try yet another book top better understand the hurt within, but believe this book will open one's eyes and direct one to experiencing inner piece. To be able to see the pasterns of our actions that lead us to heartache and frustration is eye opening and allows the reader to understand the “automatic self”. Dr. French teaches that by modifying and reeducating the “Machine” that allows us to achieve a balance with our “real self.”The descriptions were right on target. The reader will find this book encouraging, even those that may feel that they are too far gone to be helped .many readers will find themselves, turning back to this book again and again when they are in need of a “reality check.”They will find healing in the pages within. - James S. Pratty, M.D. Psychiatrist Medical Director, Azimuth Mental Health Associates What I love about Dr. French and his book is how real. This book is great for all health workers, educators, rehabilitation staff and individuals addressing their own issues. His spirituality and sensitivity is great. - Richard L Rosenberg, PhD. Lead vocational coordinator, Whittier Union High School District.
