BOOK REVIEW: Sister who embraced Stalinism
By Martin Rubin - The Washington Times
In the many volumes of what might be termed Mitfordology - studies of that endlessly fascinating and appalling clan - next-to-last daughter Jessica often appears as a salutary counterpoint to her Nazi and fascist siblings. But in the account of her life in this adulatory biography, what is most striking is not what sets her apart from all those other Mitfords, but rather her horrible similarity to them.

BOOK REVIEW: Days of gracious living
By James E. Person Jr. - The Washington Times
While the insider culture of Washington has always had about it a strong whiff of conniving, self-serving raffishness, there always has been a handful of political figures who have striven to do the right thing by the people who sent them into the arena.

BOOK REVIEW: An Army wife reflects
By Muriel Dobbin - The Washington Times
In a haunting way, this book captures the war that is fought at home and the emotional stress undergone by the women who also serve as they wait. It is laid out in simple, crisp prose in the setting of a military base and is told by a woman who is the wife of an Army major and knows whereof she writes.

BOOK REVIEW: 'My Nine Lives'
By Priscilla S. Taylor - The Washington Times
Classical music has dominated the life of master pianist Leon Fleisher, now 82 years old, since he was 4, when he took over his older brother's piano lessons. This amazingly informative book tells how it felt to be a musical prodigy, to study with the most accomplished teachers of his day, to win one of the greatest international piano competitions and to play with the best conductors and best orchestras at the top of his profession.

BOOK REVIEW: 'Why Not Say What Happened?'
By Martin Rubin - The Washington Times
We're all familiar with biographies - and even the occasional works of fiction like "The Forsyte Saga" - that have family trees to help us figure out who's who. This memoir could sure use one, but then again, its author, burdened as she is by heredity and experience, might have been hard put at various times in her life to provide an accurate one.

BOOK REVIEW: 'The Dinosaur Hunter'
By Mark Hensch - The Washington Times

BOOK REVIEW: Mark Twain himself after 100 years
By James E. Person Jr. - The Washington Times
"Well, there he stands - a bit concealed, a bit false, but still a colossus," H.L. Mencken wrote upon reading a biography of Mark Twain (Samuel Langhorne Clemens). These words might well apply to the enormous first volume of Twain's autobiography. Published 5:11 p.m. January 5, 2011 - Comments
BOOK REVIEW: Sioux warrior and his times

BOOK REVIEW: Overtaxed and overregulated
By John R. Coyne Jr. - The Washington Times
Texas Gov. Rick Perry, the longest-serving governor in state history, is a constitutional scholar, a defender of free enterprise, a champion of states' rights and the 10th Amendment and a polemicist of the first order - all qualities evident in this strongly written and persuasively argued book.

BOOK REVIEW: How Paris survived occupation
By John M. Taylor - The Washington Times
On June 13, 1940, following a series of stunning military defeats at the hands of Hitler's army, the government of France declared its capital an open city; German forces entered Paris the next day. The city had lost more than half of its prewar population, and the only vehicles on the road were German. Published 3:20 p.m. January 2, 2011 - Comments
BOOK REVIEW: 'A Skeptic's Guide to Writers' Houses'
By John Greenya - The Washington Times
Before you read this book, check out the picture of the author on the inside back cover. What do you see - skepticism or sarcasm? By the time you finish the book, I think you'll agree with me that it is the latter. One way or the other, it is definitely a book with a lot of attitude.

By Philip Kopper - The Washington Times
Every man has his Waterloo, which is fine if you happen to be Wellington and not the other guy. Paul Revere, Dudley Saltonstall and Solomon Lovell were the other guys, the goats, in the American Revolution's biggest naval operation and our nation's worst rout until Pearl Harbor.
