Tyler E.Nordgren
Description: On August 21, 2017, more than ten million Americans will experience the first total eclipse of the sun in America in almost forty years. Astronomer Tyler Nordgren illustrates how this most seemingly unnatural of natural phenomena was transformed from a fearsome omen to a tourist attraction. From the astrologers of ancient China and Babylon to the high priests of the Maya, Sun Moon Earth takes us around the world to show how different cultures interpreted these dramatic events. Greek philosophers discovered eclipses’ cause and used them to measure their world and the cosmos beyond. Victorian-era scientists mounted eclipse expeditions during the age of globe-spanning empires. And modern-day physicists continue to use eclipses to confirm Einstein’s theory of relativity.

Ross King
Description: Among all of Monet's creations, the paintings of the water lilies in his garden at Giverny are most famous. Monet himself intended them to provide "an asylum of peaceful meditation." Yet, as King reveals, these beautiful canvases belie the intense frustration Monet experienced at the difficulties of capturing the fugitive effects of light, water, and color. They also reflect the terrible personal torments Monet suffered in the last dozen years of his life. By early 1914 French newspapers were reporting that Monet had retired his brushes, yet at 73 he began perhaps his most ambitious project.

Shirley Babashoff, Chris Epting
Description: In her swimming career, Shirley Babashoff set 39 national records and 11 world records. Prior to the 1990s, she was the most successful U.S. female Olympian and, in her prime, was considered to be the greatest female swimmer in the world. At the 1976 Olympic Games in Montreal, hopes were high for her to become "the female Mark Spitz." All of that changed once Babashoff questioned the shocking masculinity of the swimmers on the East German women's team. Once celebrated as America's golden girl, Babashoff was accused of poor sportsmanship and vilified by the press. Making Waves displays the strength and resilience that made Babashoff a champion, telling her story in the same unflinching manner that made her both the most dominant female swimmer of her time and one of the most controversial athletes in Olympic history.

For decades, misconceptions about Hitler have percolated, but to cast Hitler as purely a psychopathic monster is to ignore the facets of his personality that help explain his enigmatic hold on the German populace. Ullrich recounts Hitler's personal journey from childhood to his consolidation of political power, and in doing so captures Hitler's canniness, instinctive grasp of politics, and gift for oratory as well as his megalomania, deep insecurity, and repulsive worldview.
