    Mark Milke is a Calgary author and public policy analyst who has authored multiple studies on government subsidies to business. So might begin the gospel of American secularism. Ambition in America concerns itself with the heart and soul of American democracy itself and raises important questions about the meaning of citizenship and the proper uses of political power. As Marcus shows, however, there were scarcely any Republican senators who would even consider breaking with their party on the vote. Ruthless Ambition is a deep look into the political life and machinations of a governor and former U.

    His work is grounded in modern political science research, but his clearly written, jargon-free analysis is accessible to general readers and scholars. But it is undeniable. Meticulous in backing up everything he says with objective legal documentation, Manzo makes a convincing and disconcerting case for the governor as an unbridled and sinister political figure who made the most of a seriously flawed Department of Justice and overall dysfunctional judicial system to feed his megalomania and desire for power. Ambition in America: Political Power and the Collapse of Citizenship is an engaging examination of this little-studied and interesting phenomenon. This first separation of church and state was, then, a purely negative measure. On the way, she uncovers secret White House meetings, intense lobbying efforts, private confrontations on Capitol Hill, and lives forever upended on both coasts.

    This charm derives from his remarkable life story—the rise from humble origins, the dramatic death—and from his distinctively human and humane personality as well as from his historical role as saviour of the Union and emancipator of the slaves. In that sense, Marcus has delivered a master class in how Washington works and an unforgettable case study in supreme ambition. It destroyed what secularists saw as unnatural public privilege for a corrupt institution holding vested interests in superstition and tyranny. Throughout the work, Kranish and Fisher discuss Trump's motivation to increase his financial standing and gain more fame. If physics made the cosmos, and geology the Earth, that left men to make political society. So might begin the gospel of American secularism.
