The Ten Things You Can't Say in America struck a chord with eager readers acroos the country, exposing thruths others have been too afraid to address. In his new book, Elder is out to slay entrenched and enmeshed special interest groups, government agencies with the capacity to meddle in Americans' lives and businesses, lawmakers who continue a pattern of outrageous overtaxation, and those who would hamstring this country with good intentions.

Showdown demonstrates how the nation would be better, stronger and safer with less gvernment intervention and how individuals would not only cope but thrive without the so-called safety net. Showdown is a call to arms for a truly free society. Elder discusses:

- What a Republican-led government means for progress
- Where a responsible government would put its citizens' tax dollars
- Why racial and sex discrimination are non-issues in the 21st century.

Larry Elders straight talk and common-sense solutions spare no one and will inspire his passionate and growing audience.

From Rush Limbaugh to Howard Stern, America tunes in to its radio hosts both on the air and between covers, accepting them as truth-tellers without agendas, the perfect gadflies for the age of too much information. In an era where everyone seems bought and paid for, they cut through it all to tell it like it is. For Fall 2000--just in time to enter the fray for the presidential election season-St. Martin's is happy to present the most unfettered voice of all, Larry Elder.

Larry Elder has been igniting passions and conversations for five years at the top of the competitive drive-time radio heap, KABC in Los Angeles-the "Sage from South Central" punctures pretensions, refuses to accept the accepted wisdom, and puts everyone on notice that the status quo needs to be shaken up. From his outrage over the entrenched "victicrat" society and how it keeps believers spinning their wheels, to his trenchant observations on work, leadership, race, special interests, politics and more, Larry is a clarion voice that cuts through what the usual suspects say and hear.

"Bad schools, crime, drugs, high taxes, the social security mess, racism, the health care crisis, unemployment, welfare state dependency, illegitimacy. What do these issues have in common? Politicians, the media and our so-called leaders lie to us about them. They lie about the cause. They lie about the effect. They lie about the solutions." -- Larry Elder

A man's relationship with his father -- every boy, every man lucky enough to have a father in his life has to figure that out.

My own father?

I thought I knew him -- even though he seldom talked about himself. And what I knew I hated -- really, really hated. Cold, ill-tempered, thin-skinned, my father always seemed on the brink of erupting. Scared to death of him, I kept telling myself to find the courage to "stand up to him." When I was fifteen, I did. We did not speak to each other for ten years.

And then we did -- for eight hours.

Dear Father, Dear Son takes a journey of American history through the eyes of a father -- from his dirt-poor Jim Crow Southern childhood, to the segregated Marine Corp. of World War II, to a janitor turned California businessman. Hard memories.

One man discovered a son he never really knew. And the son found a man, a friend, a father who had really been there all along.

IS LIFE UNFAIR FOR BLACK AMERICANS?

In What’s Race Got to Do with It?, bestselling author Larry Elder takes on the touchiest topic in American life: Race.  Some Americans think race is the biggest issue this country faces today.  Elder says: What?!? What about the economy, what about war, what about the security of our borders and our citizens?

IS A HUGE GROUP OF CITIZENS BEING KEPT DOWN BY “THE MAN”?

Elder calls for an end to bitching, moaning and whining and the belief that somebody owes you a job, that self-esteem is given out for passing “go”, that a black person in a position of authority is always a good thing, whether or not they have credentials and experience.  He skewers the loudmouths—and the “mainscream” media—who point to racism as the root of all problems.  Elder explains why Hillary Clinton doesn’t get it, but Barack Obama does—at least most of the time.

But What’s Race Got to Do with It? has a positive message, too: there are leaders and role models today who want to urge everyone to share in the hard work, smart thinking and optimism that make America great and strong.
