    By Conor O'Clery

    Read by Don Hagen

    The Last Day of the Soviet Union

    Conor O'Clery has written a unique and truly suspenseful thriller of the day the Soviet Union died.

    "Shrewd political history...O'Clery presents a colorful human-scale saga, full of pathos and pettiness. (As Gorbachev was preparing his farewell address, Yeltsin sent minions to evict his family from their dacha.) But he also illuminates larger historical forces: the revival of nationalist politics in the breakaway Soviet republics; the desperate food shortages as the command economy lost its authority; the social enervation that left no one willing to defend the Soviet system by force. The result is a revealing portrait of one of history's greatest upheavals." - Publishers Weekly

    By Howard French

    Read by Don Hagen

    How a Million Migrants Are Building a New Empire in Africa

    An account of China's presence in Africa, an empire shaping the future of millions of people.

    “China’s trade with Africa has grown dramatically…But China’s investments…are less significant for this rapidly evolving relationship, according to this 15-country survey by veteran African correspondent French, than the significant flow of new Chinese immigrants—often pushed out by the pressure and oppression back home as much as lured by opportunity. In vivid first-person reportage, French explores this momentous phenomenon, while challenging assumptions about China and Chinese immigrants…The book will appeal to students of China and Africa, and anyone interested in the shifting contours of the global economy and its geopolitical consequences.” - Publishers Weekly

Using the original French railway system as a metaphor for what's wrong with traditional social and political structures, Johnson proposes tapping into networks to widen reach and participation. Cohen puts just the right emphasis on Johnson's words, moving from topic to topic, and the jargon associated with each, with aplomb." - AudioFile Magazine
