    In The Eve of Destruction Peter Biskind reveals the ideological battles behind the violent and seemingly mindless escapism of twenty-first-century popular culture.Wondering why we’re constantly inundated with zombies, vampires, witches, aliens from outer space, and a Pandora’s box of other supernatural creatures? Drawing on shows like The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones, films like Avatar and World War Z, and various other dystopian and supernatural fantasies, cultural critic Peter Biskind explains why these formerly disreputable subjects have suddenly become mainstream, minting money and creating a vast fan base. Rather than dismissing these fictions as the worst that mass culture has to offer, Biskind reveals them as battlefields on which clashing ideologies struggle for advantage. Right assails left, left bashes right, and both gang up on the center. Biskind shows how the grand bipartisan accord that defined postwar society broke down over successive decades, hammered first from the left by the civil rights movement, the Vietnam War, and Watergate, and then from the right by the Reagan Revolution, 9/11, and later the Tea Party. Where once we had consensus, we now have polarization. Extremism, which used to be a vice, has become a virtue—and a hallmark—of our popular culture, even as it tears our political system to shreds.

    Recounted here is the harrowing life of the most successful confidential informant in the history of US law enforcement. A onetime mastermind narcotics distributor, C.S. 96 first saw the tragedies caused by the drug trade with his own eyes as he got to know the women involved with his business partner and the children that they raised. By the time C.S. 96 was arrested in a drug bust, he had made up his mind to get out of the business for good. Rather than beat the charges as his lawyer advised him to, he would confess, flip sides, and work for the federal government. He has spent the two decades since working for a web of federal agencies, leveraging inside information and connections gained while living his own criminal past to launch audacious operations that no other undercover agent would dream of. While projecting the swagger of a drug lord, C.S. 96 get inside the minds of the gang and cartel leaders he goes toe to toe with. He becomes an actor risking everything to perform every night—one minor slip in his character and C.S. 96 and his family may disappear forever. And when leaders of Mexico’s Sinaloa Cartel that he was trying to ensnare tracked down C.S. 96’s home and visited his wife and children there unannounced, he was forced to uproot them and confront the unthinkable dangers that he brought into their lives.Unfolding in Southern California mansions, makeshift DEA trailers set up in the middle of the Redwoods, and the anonymous fast food parking lots where kilograms of cocaine and heroin changed hands, Confidential Source Ninety-Six is the epic saga of one man’s quest to redeem himself in the eyes of his family and a thrilling, intimate look at the law enforcement battle that rages on beneath our noses.

    Maxwell Knight was a paradox. A jazz obsessive and nature enthusiast (he is the author of the definitive work on how to look after a gorilla), he is seen today as one of MI5’s greatest spymasters, a man who did more than any other to break up British fascism during the Second World War - in spite of having once belonged to the British Fascisti himself. He was known to his agents and colleagues simply as M, and is rumored to be the inspiration for the character in the James Bond series.Knight became a legendary spymaster despite an almost total lack of qualifications. What set him apart from his peers was a mercurial ability to transform almost anyone into a fearless secret agent. He was the first in MI5 to grasp the potential of training female agents.Agent M is about more than just one man however. In its pages, Hemming will reveal for the first time in print the names and stories of some of the men and women recruited by Knight, on behalf of MI5, and then asked to infiltrate the most dangerous political organizations in Britain at that time. Until now, their identities have been kept secret outside MI5. Drawn from every walk of life, they led double lives—often at great personal cost—in order to protect the country they loved. With the publication of this book, it will be possible at last to celebrate the lives of these courageous and selfless individuals.Drawing on declassified documents, private family archives, and original interviews, Agent M reveals not just the shadowy world of espionage but a brilliant, enigmatic man at its shadowy center.

    Olivia and Mia Flores are married to the highest level drug traffickers ever to become US informants. Their husbands worked with—and then brought down—El Chapo, as well as dozens of high-level members of the Mexican cartels. They had everything money could buy: luxury cars, huge houses, and expensive jewelry—but they chose to give it all up when they cooperated with the US government. They knew that life was about more than wealth; it was about love, family, and doing what’s right. Cartel Wives is a love story, a “Married to the Mob” story, an insider’s look into the terrifying but high-flying empire of the new world of drugs, and, finally, the story of a major DEA and FBI operation.
