The Cornell University Press frequently has freebies; this one caught my eye.

Acts of Care: Recovering Women in Late Medieval Health Kindle Edition by Sara Ritche who argues “that women in premodern Europe were both deeply engaged with and highly knowledgeable about health, the body, and therapeutic practices, but their critical role in medieval healthcare has been obscured because scholars have erroneously regarded the evidence of their activities as religious rather than medical.”

Peril, by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa, is on sale for $4.99 today as part of the US Kindle Daily Deal, matched at Kobo US.

Quote:
The transition from President Donald J. Trump to President Joseph R. Biden Jr. stands as one of the most dangerous periods in American history.

But as # 1 internationally bestselling author Bob Woodward and acclaimed reporter Robert Costa reveal for the first time, it was far more than just a domestic political crisis.

Woodward and Costa interviewed more than 200 people at the center of the turmoil, resulting in more than 6,000 pages of transcripts—and a spellbinding and definitive portrait of a nation on the brink.

This classic study of Washington takes readers deep inside the Trump White House, the Biden White House, the 2020 campaign, and the Pentagon and Congress, with vivid, eyewitness accounts of what really happened.

Peril is supplemented throughout with never-before-seen material from secret orders, transcripts of confidential calls, diaries, emails, meeting notes and other personal and government records, making for an unparalleled history.

It is also the first inside look at Biden’s presidency as he faces the challenges of a lifetime: the continuing deadly pandemic and millions of Americans facing soul-crushing economic pain, all the while navigating a bitter and disabling partisan divide, a world rife with threats, and the hovering, dark shadow of the former president.

“We have much to do in this winter of peril,” Biden declared at his inauguration, an event marked by a nerve-wracking security alert and the threat of domestic terrorism.

Peril is the extraordinary story of the end of one presidency and the beginning of another, and represents the culmination of Bob Woodward’s news-making trilogy on the Trump presidency, along with Fear and Rage. And it is the beginning of a collaboration with fellow Washington Post reporter Robert Costa that will remind readers of Woodward’s coverage, with Carl Bernstein, of President Richard M. Nixon’s final days.

The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Religion by Jonathan Haidt is getting on for a decade old, but I re-read it a couple of years ago, and it still seemed pretty timely to me. It's £0.99 at Kindle UK today.

Quote:
Why can it sometimes feel as though half the population is living in a different moral universe? Why do ideas such as 'fairness' and 'freedom' mean such different things to different people? Why is it so hard to see things from another viewpoint? Why do we come to blows over politics and religion?

Jonathan Haidt reveals that we often find it hard to get along because our minds are hardwired to be moralistic, judgemental and self-righteous. He explores how morality evolved to enable us to form communities, and how moral values are not just about justice and equality - for some people authority, sanctity or loyalty matter more. Morality binds and blinds, but, using his own research, Haidt proves it is possible to liberate ourselves from the disputes that divide good people.

Paperback Crush by Gabrielle Moss

"Paperback Crush: The Totally Radical History of '80s and '90s Teen Fiction by Gabrielle Moss is just $2.99 today!

It's a fun and informative book -- but it has lots of pictures of cover art. So it will be better to read it on a tablet. (Hint: File size: 249,835 KB!)

Think of this as "Paperbacks from Hell: The Twisted History of ’70s and ’80s Horror Fiction" for fans of 1980s and 1990s teen paperbacks (Babysitter's Club, Sweet Valley High, etc.). In fact, it's from Quirk Books, the same publisher as "Paperbacks from Hell."

I've always enjoyed reading The Economist to see the news from a non-US viewpoint, even if that viewpoint is usually somewhat loosely aligned. And also just because The Economist's reporters are such awesome writers that they can make pretty much anything and everything interesting....

Now here's a book that purports to do the same thing for US history: History Lessons: How Textbooks from Around the World Portray U.S. History, by Dana Lindaman and Kyle Ward. From looking at the sample, this appears to be pretty much what the title says, and although the sample seems a little disjointed, with maybe not great connection between the various sections, the first few entries were interesting enough for me to buy the book at its current Kindle US sale price of $2.99. I think it'll be one of those books to keep on my phone and read when I'm in line at the store or bank...

A “fascinating” look at what students in Russia, France, Iran, and other nations are taught about America (The New York Times Book Review).

This “timely and important” book (History News Network) gives us a glimpse into classrooms across the globe, where opinions about the United States are first formed.

History Lessons includes selections from textbooks and teaching materials used in Russia, France, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Cuba, Canada, and others, covering such events as the American Revolution, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Iran hostage crisis, and the Korean War—providing some alternative viewpoints on the history of the United States from the time of the Viking explorers to the post-Cold War era.

By juxtaposing starkly contrasting versions of the historical events we take for granted, History Lessons affords us a sometimes hilarious, often sobering look at what the world thinks about America’s past.

“A brilliant idea.” —Foreign Affairs

See the world. Then make it better.

'I am 94. I've had an extraordinary life. It's only now that I appreciate how extraordinary.

As a young man, I felt I was out there in the wild, experiencing the untouched natural world - but it was an illusion. The tragedy of our time has been happening all around us, barely noticeable from day to day - the loss of our planet's wild places, its biodiversity.

I have been witness to this decline. A Life on Our Planet is my witness statement, and my vision for the future. It is the story of how we came to make this, our greatest mistake - and how, if we act now, we can yet put it right.

We have one final chance to create the perfect home for ourselves and restore the wonderful world we inherited.'

All we need is the will to do so.'

It is showing for 1.99 for me today on Kindle

I read this last year and agree it's great. It talks a lot on the history of racism and sexuality when it came to getting these books published in the older days.
