BOOK REVIEW: 'Passport to Peking'
By Martin Rubin - The Washington Times
The period under discussion in British writer and broadcaster Patrick Wright’s intriguing book is 1954, a year after the death of Josef Stalin, when there were high hopes in the West that there could be real changes in the communist world and an opportunity to, at the very least, reduce Cold War tensions.

BOOK REVIEW: ‘Scorecasting’
By Mark Hensch - The Washington Times
”Scorecasting” is a book that sports fans should take to their upcoming tailgates. In one fell swoop, it shatters many of the most cherished athletic cliches with hard data and headstrong argument. Published 6:21 a.m. February 18, 2011 - Comments
BOOK REVIEW: ‘Louisa May Alcott’
By Priscilla S. Taylor - The Washington Times
Ever since the mid-20th century, when Madeleine Stern discovered that Louisa May Alcott had pseudonymously written a series of melodramatic thrillers to support the Alcott family in the years before she hit pay dirt with “Little Women,” writers have looked for something new to say about this most famous 19th-century American female author.

BOOK REVIEW: ‘Fadeaway Girl’
By Muriel Dobbin - The Washington Times
Twelve-year-old Emma Graham has a taste for old crimes, haunted places and a ghost girl, so it seems unkind to suggest what she seems to enjoy most is mixing bizarre drinks for her 99-year-old great-aunt, Aurora Paradise. Published 6:21 a.m. February 18, 2011 - Comments
BOOK REVIEW: Three D’s of education reform
By Phil Brand - The Washington Times
Move over “reading, ‘riting and ‘rithmetic.” The three R’s are old hat. These days education needs to be about the three D’s: decentralization, diversity and dynamism. So argues Frederick M. Hess in his new book about school reform, “The Same Thing Over and Over.” Published 6:15 p.m. February 16, 2011 - Comments
BOOK REVIEW: Champion of ‘little’ government
By John M. Taylor - The Washington Times
If Patrick Henry were alive today, he would almost certainly be a front-runner for the Tea Party presidential nomination. The Revolutionary orator, who today is remembered primarily for a single passionate speech, was in his day an important spokesman for minimalist rule - for those who opposed the establishment of any strong central government.

BOOK REVIEW: What China’s capitalism means
By Doug Bandow - The Washington Times
Three decades ago, the Chinese giant awoke from its Maoist nightmare. One-quarter of the world’s population joined the world. While today Western nations focus on Beijing’s growing influence on military and political affairs, Karl Gerth of Oxford University addresses the impact of China’s consumers.

BOOK REVIEW: 'Public Enemies'
By Stephen Goode - The Washington Times
America rarely makes big-time celebrities of its writers, doting on their every utterance, deed and sexual peccadillo. At least not like the French do. In 1885, 2 million admirers joined the funeral procession of the great poet and novelist Victor Hugo. It was one of the biggest Parisian events of all time.

BOOK REVIEW: 'A Voice from Old New York'
By Philip Kopper - The Washington Times
If Louis Auchincloss' forebears rolled over in their manicured graves when his novels came out, they can stop worrying now that his posthumous memoir has appeared. The most shocking outrage herein happened to the author himself, at boarding school. Published 9:56 a.m. February 11, 2011 - Comments
BOOK REVIEW: 'Virtual Caliphate'
By Joshua Sinai - The Washington Times
The widespread use of the Internet by extremist Islamist organizations and their sympathizers is well-known. For example, the appearance on such websites of announcements and speeches by terrorist leaders and ideologues and the avid rapture with which individuals around the world are radicalized in their forums and chat rooms into becoming religious extremists and terrorists are widely reported.

BOOK REVIEW: Messy end of shah's regime
By David C. Acheson - The Washington Times
Abbas Milani has taken on a hard task: to explain how and why the rule of Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi (1919-1980) in Iran came to an inglorious and messy end. Published 6:02 p.m. February 9, 2011 - Comments
BOOK REVIEW: Peddling the Soviet 'big lie'
By Joseph C. Goulden - The Washington Times
One of the Soviet Union's crowning intelligence achievements was the creation of a vast propaganda network, the Communist International, or Comintern, charged with putting an innocent face on a brutal ideology and enlisting the support of political naifs worldwide who were too misty-eyed to see through the scam. Published 6:17 p.m. February 8, 2011 - Comments
BOOK REVIEW: What he did and why
By Gary Anderson - The Washington Times
The first roughly 300 pages of "Known and Unknown" cover Donald Rumsfeld's story up to his second term as secretary of defense, and general readers without a dog in the fight will find this part to be the book's most enjoyable and entertaining. Published 7:07 p.m. February 7, 2011 - Comments
