Whether building a road or fighting a war, leaders from ancient Mesopotamia to the present have relied on financial accounting to track their state's assets and guide its policies. Basic accounting tools such as auditing and double-entry bookkeeping form the basis of modern capitalism and the nation-state. Yet our appreciation for accounting and its formative role throughout history remains minimal at best-and we remain ignorant at our peril. The 2008 financial crisis is only the most recent example of how poor or risky practices can shake, and even bring down, entire societies. In The Reckoning, historian and MacArthur "Genius" Award-winner Jacob Soll presents a sweeping history of accounting, drawing on a wealth of examples from over a millennia of human history to reveal how accounting has shaped kingdoms, empires, and entire civilizations. The Medici family of 15th century Florence used the double-entry method to win the loyalty of their clients, but eventually began to misrepresent their accounts, ultimately contributing to the economic decline of the Florentine state itself. In the 17th and 18th centuries, European rulers shunned honest accounting, understanding that accurate bookkeeping would constrain their spending and throw their legitimacy into question. And in fact, when King Louis XVI's director of finances published the crown's accounts in 1781, his revelations provoked a public outcry that helped to fuel the French Revolution. When transparent accounting finally took hold in the 19th Century, the practice helped England establish a global empire. But both inept and willfully misused accounting persist, as the catastrophic Stock Market Crash of 1929 and the Great Recession of 2008 have made all too clear. A masterwork of economic and political history, and a radically new perspective on the recent past, The Reckoning compels us to see how accounting is an essential instrument of great institutions and nations-and one that, in our increasingly transparent and interconnected world, has never been more vital.

It was time then for action, and Lefty Joe prepared for the descent into the home of the enemy. Let it not be thought that he approached this moment with a fallen heart, and with a cringing, snaky feeling as a man might be expected to feel when he approached to murder a sleeping foeman. For that was not Lefty's emotion at all. Rather he was overcome by a tremendous happiness. He could have sung with joy at the thought that he was about to rid himself of this pest."We are happy to announce this classic book.

San Francisco, 1908. After a catastrophic earthquake and fire, the devastated city is rapidly rebuilding its structures, spirit, and vitality. It is proudly called the New San Francisco. But there are still parts of San Francisco that haven't changed, including the Barbary Coast, where a crimp, padfoot, or murderous thug could be waiting around the next corner. And the city is still infected with anti-Asian racism and widespread political corruption. Into this "new" San Francisco, William Dunbar returns to avenge a brutal family murder that he believes occurred at exactly the time of the quake. As a writer of scenarios for one-reel motion pictures, he plans to use his craft to reveal the killer's guilt. However, he soon finds the odds are against him when he confronts much darker dangers than those of the Barbary Coast.

A leading forecaster of economic and political trends takes a sharp look at the decline of American influence in the world, and how it can prepare for the new reality. The age of American global dominance is ending. Today, a host of forces are converging to challenge its cherished notion of exceptionalism, and risky economic and foreign policies have steadily eroded the power structure in place since the Cold War. Staggering under a huge burden of debt, the country must make some tough choices—or cede sovereignty to its creditors. In The Reckoning, Michael Moran, geostrategy analyst explores the challenges ahead -- and what, if anything, can be prevent chaos as America loses its perch at the top of the mountain. Covering developments like unprecedented information technologies, the growing prosperity of China, India, Brazil, and Turkey, and the diminished importance of Wall Street in the face of global markets, Moran warns that the coming shift will have serious consequences not just for the United States, but for the wider world. Countries that have traditionally depended on the United States for protection and global stability will have to fend for themselves. Moran describes how, with a bit of wise leadership, America can transition to this new world order gracefully—by managing entitlements, reigniting sustainable growth, reforming immigration policy, launching new regional dialogues that bring friend and rival together in cooperative multinational structures, and breaking the poisonous deadlock in Washington. If not, he warns, history won't wait.

It was on a beautiful morning in June 1973 that eleven-year-old Miller McAllister’s world fell apart ... That was the weekend that police found the remains of three missing teenage girls on the tiny Scottish island of Fidra. And that was the weekend that Miller’s father, Douglas, was arrested for triple murder. Thirty-two years later, Douglas has died in prison and Miller returns home after decades of self-imposed exile. The McAllister family always maintained Douglas’s innocence – as steadfastly as Miller maintained his guilt. But when Miller is given the legal archive and a letter his father wrote to him just days before his death, suddenly everything looks less clear. To excavate the past and recover the truth, Miller immerses himself in the terrible events of over thirty years ago and his family’s darkest hour. Was nothing quite as it seemed on that fateful June day? Could Douglas McAllister have been innocent after all? And if he didn’t kill the girls ... who did?

Enter the territory of Jeff Long, where the unknown is deeply present, death is a constant shadow, and the human spirit is our final hope. Now comes The Reckoning, another superbly original thriller -- a story of predation, betrayal, and resurrection that is at once intricate, haunting, and terrifying. Armed with only a camera and iron determination, thirty-year-old photojournalist Molly Drake arrives in modern-day Cambodia to cover the U.S. military search for the remains of an American pilot shot down during the Vietnam War. In this eerie wasteland pockmarked with human bones and live land mines, the people hold more secrets than the landscape, from aging archaeologist Duncan O'Brian to John Kleat, a caustic vet hunting for his long lost brother. When Molly's camera captures a flight helmet buried among Khmer Rouge victims, diplomatic powers force her and her civilian comrades off the dig. But just as a typhoon looms offshore, the outcasts learn of an even bigger find. A mysterious expatriot guides them into the ruins of an ancient city, where they begin a harrowing search for the remains of an entire patrol of GIs that strayed in combat thirty years ago. With storm winds hammering their jungle fortress, Molly discovers that a war she never knew never died. Her survival comes to depend on her journalistic skills to solve a forgotten murder among these warriors left behind. In the end, her only hope for salvation is to redeem the lost souls that surround her. As stylishly written as it is suspenseful, The Reckoning is a thriller that illuminates the fragile thread between life and death, knowledge and ignorance, hope and horror. Bringing readers ever closer to enemy territory, it is a hair-raising journey into one of modern history's darkest periods and an intense look into the hearts still haunted by it.

Raised by a homeless drifter in the American southwest, fifteen-year-old Cate has never known what it’s like to have a home or a loving family, let alone how it feels to buy new clothes. But this is the only way of life she’s ever been exposed to: travelling the dusty highway from town to town and living hand to mouth, stealing only when the welfare cheques or food stamps run out. Despite her hardscrabble existence and lack of education, Cate is intelligent, forceful and fiercely loyal to Les, the only parent she has ever known. She’s always been aware that Les kidnapped her from her parents’ campsite when she was just three years old, but can hardly imagine how different her own life would have been if she’d never been taken, or how traumatic her disappearance was for her mother. Les has even called Janice Wingford over the years, to let her know that her daughter is alive. Listening in, Cate has always interpreted her mother’s disbelief as a lack of love. But as The Reckoning opens, Les is making a very different phone call than usual: he’s decided that it’s time to return Cate to her mother and tells the woman that he’ll be bringing her daughter home to Virginia. Les’s decision is not the result of remorse or wanting to do the right thing, but his realization that he may not be able to control Cate any longer — she’s committed a vicious crime, and his self-serving, fatherly love is not strong enough to survive such a test. Cate has mixed feelings, of course — she’s curious about what it will be like to meet her mother, but certain that the woman will take one look at her and demand they leave, whether because she doesn’t believe Les’s story or because she just doesn’t like Cate. She’s also scared that Les might abandon her with this stranger, and as they drive across the country to bring about the reunion she makes him promise not to leave her there alone. The emotional heart of this novel lies in what happens when mother and daughter are brought together again, and DNA tests prove that Les is telling the truth. Cate must try to get beyond her resentment and learn what it means to have a mother, and to love her for that reason alone. Janice has to try to reconcile her memories of her sweet three-year-old with the reality of brash, difficult Cate. Complicating their uneasy relationship is the truth of Cate’s crime, which prevents both women from getting too close. But when Cate’s lies become unbearable, her mother determines that the facts must come out if there’s to be any hope they’ll truly accept one another. Together, they travel to the scene of the crime — a small town in the western desert — to confront the truth. The Reckoning is a powerful and almost gut-wrenching exploration of what it means to be mother and daughter when horrific events of the past threaten to destroy that tenuous bond. Patricia Tyrrell’s use of Cate’s first-person perspective allows her to bring the conflicting emotions of her characters to the forefront, and the intensity of her writing suffuses the novel with suspense. But it is the stunning premise of this story that has gained Tyrrell the most attention. Asked how she came up with the idea, the author has commented: “I had read a newspaper account of how an American woman was deceived by phone calls into believing that her kidnapped daughter was still alive, although in fact the child was killed soon after the abduction. I thought: What if the child were alive? What if the abductor was desperate to return her? Why would he want to take such a risk? And the idea of the girl who committed a murder then came to me.” From there, Tyrrell drew on her experiences living in the United States to flesh out the narrative and created this dramatic meditation on the themes of loss and reunion, parents and children, and nature versus nurture.

This book is the first to tell the tale.As the world plunged into global conflict, in British-governed Palestine a killing took place that shook British and Middle East politics. While in neighbouring Egypt, British forces were confronting Rommel's Afrika Korps, a series of robberies in Palestine by the militant Zionists of the Stern Gang, led by the charismatic Avraham Stern - known as 'the light' by his followers, began a war with their colonial governors. Soon they had targeted and killed policemen, initiating a huge manhunt amid Tel-Aviv's hotbed of suspicion, violence and fanaticism.

When finally he succeeded, his shots would echo through the years. 'The Reckoning' is the tale of the man who terrorised Israel, the man determined to prevent him, and the creation of a cult of martyrdom that destroyed of any hope of compromise between Arab and Jew.
