“Nothing short of horrifying . . . In terms of putting the last 100 years in perspective, Dupes may be one of the most significant literary offerings of our time.” —Washington Times In this startling, intensively researched book, bestselling historian Paul Kengor shines light on a deeply troubling aspect of American history: the prominent role of the “dupe.” From the Bolshevik Revolution through the Cold War and right up to the present, many progressives have unwittingly aided some of America’s most dangerous opponents. Based on never-before-published FBI files, Soviet archives, and other primary sources, Dupes reveals: •Shocking reports on how Senator Ted Kennedy secretly approached the Soviet leadership to undermine not one but two American presidents •Stunning new evidence that Frank Marshall Davis—mentor to a young Barack Obama—had extensive Communist ties and demonized Democrats •Jimmy Carter’s woeful record dealing with America’s two chief foes of the past century, Communism and Islamism •Today’s dupes, including the congressmen whose overseas anti-American propaganda trip was allegedly financed by foreign intelligence •How Franklin Roosevelt was duped by “Uncle Joe” Stalin—and by a top adviser who may have been a Soviet agent—despite clear warnings from fellow Democrats •How John Kerry’s accusations that American soldiers committed war crimes in Vietnam may have been the product of Soviet disinformation •The many Hollywood stars who were duped, including Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Katharine Hepburn, Gene Kelly—and even Ronald Reagan

In this startling, intensively researched book, bestselling historian Paul Kengor shines light on a deeply troubling aspect of American history: the prominent role of the "dupe." From the Bolshevik Revolution through the Cold War and right up to the present, many progressives have unwittingly aided some of America's most dangerous opponents. Based on never-before-published FBI files, Soviet archives, and other primary sources, Dupes exposes the legions of liberals who have furthered the objectives of America's adversaries. Kengor shows not only how such dupes contributed to history's most destructive ideology--Communism, which claimed at least 100 million lives--but also why they are so relevant to today's politics. Dupes reveals: - Shocking reports on how Senator Ted Kennedy secretly approached the Soviet leadership to undermine not one but two American presidents - Stunning new evidence that Frank Marshall Davis--mentor to a young Barack Obama--had extensive Communist ties and demonized Democrats - Jimmy Carter's woeful record dealing with America's two chief foes of the past century, Communism and Islamism - Today's dupes, including the congressmen whose overseas anti-American propaganda trip was allegedly financed by foreign intelligence - How '60s Marxist radicals--Tom Hayden, Mark Rudd, Jane Fonda, Jeff Jones, Bill Ayers, and more--have suddenly reemerged as "progressives for Obama" - How Franklin Roosevelt was duped by "Uncle Joe" Stalin--and by a top adviser who may have been a Soviet agent--despite clear warnings from fellow Democrats - How John Kerry's accusations that American soldiers committed war crimes in Vietnam may have been the product of Soviet disinformation - The many Hollywood stars who were duped, including Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Katharine Hepburn, Gene Kelly--and even Ronald Reagan - Soviet records that demonstrate beyond doubt the Communists' expansionist aims and their targeting of American liberals, especially academics and the Religious Left - How liberals still defend the same Communists who trashed Democratic icons like Woodrow Wilson, FDR, Harry Truman, and JFK--and still attack the anti-Communists who tried to spare them from manipulation - Details on many other dupes (and dupers), including Arthur Miller, Dr. Benjamin Spock, John Dewey, H. G. Wells, George Bernard Shaw, Lillian Hellman, Howard Zinn, Walter Cronkite, and Helen Thomas - A new chapter on the War on Terror. Packed with stunning revelations, Dupes shows in frightening detail how U.S. adversaries exploit the American home front. Now with an updated introduction to the paperback edition.

The existential question facing the antebellum presidents was how to resolve the dichotomy between the freedoms guaranteed in the Declaration of Independence and the protection of slavery established by the Constitution. This work details how each president dealt with this issue. It then ranks the presidents on the sole criterion of their ability to recognize slavery as the critical threat to national unity, and to act decisively to end the evil and peacefully preserve the Union. The book ends with the beginning of the Civil War – the result of presidents’ efforts.

From the capture of Sidney Reilly, the 'Ace of Spies', by Lenin's Bolsheviks in 1925, to the deportation from the USA of Anna Chapman, the 'Redhead under the Bed', in 2010, Kremlin and Western spymasters have battled for supremacy for nearly a century. In Deception Edward Lucas uncovers the real story of Chapman and her colleagues in Britain and America, unveiling their clandestine missions and the spy-hunt that led to their downfall. It reveals unknown triumphs and disasters of Western intelligence in the Cold War, providing the background to the new world of industrial and political espionage. To tell the story of post-Soviet espionage, Lucas draws on exclusive interviews with Russia's top NATO spy, Herman Simm, and unveils the horrific treatment of a Moscow lawyer who dared to challenge the ruling criminal syndicate there. Once the threat from Moscow was international communism; now it comes from the siloviki, Russia's ruthless 'men of power'.

"Big Data, Big Dupe" is a little book about a big bunch of nonsense. The story of David and Goliath inspires us to hope that something little, when armed with truth, can topple something big that is a lie. This is the author's hope. While others have written about the dangers of Big Data, Stephen Few reveals the deceit that belies its illusory nature. If "data is the new oil," Big Data is the new snake oil. It isn't real. It's a marketing campaign that has distracted us for years from the real and important work of deriving value from data.

Anna quit the London police force because it was a dead end for women, but her job with Brierly Security isn't a whole lot livelier, and her assignments tend toward the frustratingly genteel. The Jackson case doesn't look like a big improvement. Ambitious, unpleasant young Deirdre Jackson has died, the apparent victim of a car accident on a lonely stretch of highway, and her parents want to know what their black-sheep daughter was up to. But the more questions she asks about Dee's life, the more questions arise about her death. Answering them could land Anna in the hospital or the morgue. But it could also be her ticket out of the pink-collar ghetto.

Les Américains s'étant donné pour mission de protéger le monde libre, ils entendent tout savoir sur tout. Aussi la C.I.A. est-elle colère de ne pas en savoir davantage sur le C.I.R.C.A.T., un centre européen qui tenterait de déjouer les menaces terroristes sur le Vieux Continent. Croyant savoir que Lady S est une recrue occasionnelle du mystérieux centre, la C.I.A. décide de faire enlever son père adoptif, dans l'espoir que la jeune héroïne appelle le C.I.R.C.A.T. à son secours et partant, permette l'identification de certains de ses agents. Et voilà Suzan embringuée contre son gré dans une nouvelle aventure, dans un road movie survitaminé à travers la France...Le puzzle se reconstruit... Dans les premiers tomes de "Lady S", la dernière-née des séries de Jean Van Hamme, l'auteur a pris un malin plaisir à jeter en l'air les pièces d'un puzzle et à les laisser retomber au gré de sa fantaisie. Avec Jeu de dupes, tome 4 de la série, le puzzle commence à se reconstruire. Ainsi, par exemple, en apprend-on un peu plus sur le passé tourmenté de Suzan. Ainsi également la jeune femme met-elle enfin des noms et des visages sur ceux qui la manipulent depuis trop longtemps. Sans doute viendra l'heure où Suzan pourra décider de son présent et de son avenir sans que son passé ne lui revienne à la figure...

Automne 1943. Après Stalingrad, Hitler sait qu'il ne peut plus gagner la guerre. La conférence prévue pour décembre à Téhéran entre Roosevelt, Churchill et Staline va définir les termes de la paix à venir. Hitler envoie quelques espions à Téhéran pour préparer le terrain. De son côté, Himmler en fait secrètement autant. Roosevelt, lui, dépêche Willard Mayer, agent de l'OSS, personnage sans scrupule qui va modifier le cours des choses. Tous les moyens seront bons? Téhéran devient le théâtre d'une farandole de trahisons, assassinats et renversements de situation. L'auteur offre une alternative audacieuse à l'issue de la conférence, redessinant le destin de l'Europe tel qu'il aurait pu être. Son talent est de rendre tous les personnages historiques incroyablement vrais, et l'intrigue plausible. Traduit de l'anglais par Johann-Frederik Hel-Guedj
