Milton's Marilyn
Kotsilibas-Davis James

Marilyn Monroe's confidante, business partner, artistic consultant and dear friend, Milton H.Greene was also one of his era's most sought after celebrity photographers. His proximity to Marilyn enabled him to capture images of her in poses and attitudes inaccessible to the hundreds of other photographers who pursued this engaging beauty. Now available for the first time in a mini-hardcover edition, the photographs in this rich and dynamic volume comprise what are undoubtedly the most remarkable portraits ever taken of Marilyn Monroe.

My Story
Exner Judith

For 15 yrs, Judith Exner kept a tight lid on her secret love affair with John F.Kennedy in the White House - until a Senate investigation smeared the story across the nation's front pages. In 1977 Mrs Exner, after years of FBI harassment, broke her silence with this book, revealing her story - tender, intimate and unvarnished - of a passionate romance between a stunningly beautiful Los Angeles girl and the charismatic President of the United States, and of her close ties to Mafia chieftain Sam Giancana.

My week with Marilyn
Clark Colin

In 1956, fresh from Oxford, the 23-year-old Colin Clark (brother of maverick Tory MP and diarist Alan) worked as a humble 'gofer' on the set of The Prince and the Showgirl, the film that disastrously united Laurence Olivier with Marilyn Monroe. This is the story of when Clark escorted a Monroe desperate to escape from the pressures of stardom. How he ended up sharing her bed is a tale too rich to summarise! Clark's extraordinary experiences on and off set have now been turned into a major film starring Michelle Williams, Eddie Redmayne, Judi Dench, Emma Watson, Kenneth Branagh and Dominic Cooper.

Nixon - A Life
Aitken Jonathan

The rise, fall and rebirth of Richard Nixon is perhaps the most fascinating story in American politics. Presidential chronicles and other outside sources have tried to capture it in full, but "Nixon: A life" is the first to succeed.
This book is the first entirely objective biography of Richard Nixon. Jonathan Aitken conducted over sixty hours of interviews with Nixon and was granted unprecedented access to thousands of pages of Nixon's previously sealed private documents.

Passion for Truth
Specter Arlen

From finding JFK's Single Bullet to questioning Anita Hill to impeaching Clinton.
In thus brutally honest book, Senator Specter analyzes these and other controversies, assessing each through both a legal and historical lens. Throughout, he tells the truth, naming names, identifying where the system worked and where it failed - and even admitting to his own mistakes. Arlen Specter brings all these events to life, taking the reader into the courtroom, the cloakroom, and the Senate Chamber, and offers a clear and honest vision for reforming the way Main Street and Wall Street are governed.

Path to War [He promised Peace. But chose War]
Frankenheimer John

As the successor to a martyred President, Lyndon B.Johnson sought to transform America into a "Great Society" of equal opportunity. Instead, he became the symbol of the most unpopular war in U.S. history.
Michael Gambon, Donald Sutherland and Alec Baldwin star in a compelling drama of soaring ambition and shattered dreams, set inside the LBJ White House in the volatile years leading up to and during Vietnam.
