Praise for Prequel

"Maddow's book is a ripping read--well rendered, fast-paced and delivered with the same punch and assurance that she brings to a broadcast. . . . Prequel is a valuable window into the authoritarian mind-set--and the process by which self-professed patriots turn against democracy . . . the parallels to the present day are strong, even startling . . ."--The New York Times

"[A] vivid, urgent, smart history," and "Maddow makes a vital contribution to the history of armed fascism in the United States."--The Washington Post

"Maddow's sublime research into the precursors of current existential threats is astonishingly deep. She finds rabbit holes even rabbits are unaware of."--Booklist, starred review

"America beat fascism once. Maddow's timely study of enemies on the homefront urges that we can do so again."--Kirkus, starred reviews

Praise for Blowout

"An account of international intrigue, high finance, low characters, and outrageous legal and illegal acts that put the global economy and Western democracy at grave risk. . . . [Maddow] tells this tale deliberately and methodically, building her case not as a cable commentator, but as a Rhodes Scholar."--The Boston Globe

"Blowout is a rollickingly well-written book, filled with fascinating, exciting and alarming stories about the impact of the oil and gas industry on the world today. . . . A brilliant description of many of the problems caused by our reliance on fossil fuels."--The New York Times Book Review

"I can't stress enough what a great storyteller Rachel Maddow is. [She carries] the reader through some hair-raising journalism in such an engaging and propulsive fashion you simply cannot put the book down. . . . It has left a most lasting impression."--San Francisco Chronicle
