The Cherry & the Pit

This is the first in a regular series that will highlight books recently acquired for future publication. Each post will feature a book we’re looking forward to, and a book we’re . . . not.

The Cherry:

The final volume in historian Rick Perlstein’s “Backlash” trilogy, covering the 1970s and the rise of Ronald Reagan (following Nixonland: The Rise of a President and the Fracturing of America, and Before the Storm: Barry Goldwater and the Unmaking of the American Consensus).

The Pit:

Tim LaHaye and Craig Parshall’s Endgame, in which the use of a sophisticated military defense technology capable of returning nuclear missiles to their place of origin causes a series of events to unfold which eventually leads to the prophesied Rapture of the Church and the Last Days of mankind.
