How important is luck in economic success? No question more reliably divides conservatives from liberals. As conservatives correctly observe, people who amass great fortunes are almost always talented and hardworking. But liberals are also correct to note that countless others have those same qualities yet never earn much. In recent years, social scientists have discovered that chance plays a much larger role in important life outcomes than most people imagine.

This is the book the CIA does not want you to read. For the last sixty years, the CIA has maintained a formidable reputation in spite of its terrible record, never disclosing its blunders to the American public. It spun its own truth to the nation while reality lay buried in classified archives. Now, Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times reporter Tim Weiner offers a stunning indictment of the CIA, a deeply flawed organization that has never deserved America's confidence.

1859, St Mary’s Church, Spondon. Two children dash through the gravestones of the churchyard playing hide-and-seek; the young girl spots Cicely Peet’s freshly dug grave and decides it’s an ideal hiding place. She jumps in only to find Cicely’s grave already occupied; her scream of terror is heard half a mile away. It is the body of Vivian Quayle, director of the Midland Railway and, according to the victim’s friends, the epitome of a virtuous businessman.

Genre: History, Politics

Previous histories have focused on the KGB, leaving military intelligence and the special service-which specialized in codes and ciphers-lurking in the shadows. Drawing on previously neglected Russian sources, Haslam reveals how both were in fact crucial to the survival of the Soviet state. This was especially true after Stalin's death in 1953, as the Cold War heated up and dedicated Communist agents the regime had relied upon-Klaus Fuchs, the Rosenbergs, Donald Maclean-were betrayed. In the wake of these failures, Khrushchev and his successors discarded ideological recruitment in favor of blackmail and bribery.

Genre: History, Biography, Sociology

Celebrated scholar Carla Kaplan's cultural biography focuses on white women, collectively called ''Miss Anne,'' who became Harlem Renaissance insiders. The 1920s in New York City was a time of freedom, experimentation, and passion-with Harlem at the epicenter. White men could go uptown to see jazz and modern dance, but women who embraced black culture too enthusiastically could be ostracized. Miss Anne in Harlem focuses on six of the unconventional, free-thinking women, some from Manhattan high society, many Jewish, who crossed race lines and defied social conventions to become a part of the culture and heartbeat of Harlem.
