On the sunny morning of Tuesday, September 11, 2001, terrorists murdered more than twenty-seven hundred people in an attack on New York City. Thousands died when a hijacked Boeing 767 slammed into Tower One of the World Trade Center. It was first blood. For Leslie Haskin, it was a second chance at life. This is the riveting account of Leslie's harrowing escape--down 36 floors in a doomed and dying building and away from a life focused on perks, prestige, and power. The intervening months brought crippling mental and emotional distress, but from the rubble and ashes, the corporate climber rediscovered the faith of her childhood and now embraces a new life of serving others.

It will remain a masterpiece for scholars, students, and others who seek to connect with the African-American mind as expressed through the prism of folk sources."--Lewis V.

Breach of Faith: The Fall of Richard Nixon
White, Theodore H.
ISBN: 0689106580
Scribner May 1975  1975 
  8vo hardcover 373pp very good. The Nixon crisis of 1973-1974 threatened the American nation in ways we did not immediately understand. Stripped of drama and confusion, however, the problem was that our President had placed himself above the law. The nation had to decide whether that could be allowed. Theodore H. White starts this story with the last days of Richard Nixon in the White House -- as those closest recognized that he had deceived them and that they must force him out. He follows the thread of manipulation back to its origin 20 years earlier and shows how the Nixon team came to see politics as war in which no quarter was given, in which the White House was a command post where ordinary rules did not apply, where power could be used without restraint.
