Rohan Nation tells how survivors of biological warfare and electro-magnetic pulse fight to defend and reinvent America. The disasters that lead to the collapse of the U.S. in 2020 and billions of deaths worldwide are based on sound research and analysis, the predictable results of on-going mistakes. ACE, the teenage daughter of a family that prepared for the worst, and Justin, the young refugee she captures who becomes her cavalry scout apprentice, struggle to survive in a post-collapse economy where horses are key to survival. Despite the dismal future forecast, Rohan Nation: Reinventing America after the 2020 Collapse provides an uplifting story of love and hope as ACE and Justin pursue their youthful romance while defending their community and rebuilding a responsible society. Readers share in their odyssey into life's fundamental questions, moral and political issues, receiving powerful, moving insights into how we can live better now. The extraordinary story of survivors reinventing America will hopefully change the way people think and feel about not just politics, but how to lead their lives. ACE's wartime romance with Justin ultimately proves fertile ground for love's enduring miracle. While set as an action adventure, Rohan Nation is also a Libertarian political philosophy book, an "Atlas Shrugged" call for a new "responsibility political philosophy" to break the nation's addiction to socialist entitlements and return to Constitutional, strictly limited government, focused on security. The rebirth of America, realistically forecast, told as a future combat thriller, action adventure, romance novel. About the Author: Dr. Drew Miller researches and writes professionally for a Department of Defense think tank and serves as a Colonel in the U.S. Air Force Reserve. A USAF Academy and Harvard University graduate, Dr. Miller served as an intelligence officer in the Air Force, a business and Pentagon program manager, and an elected official.

America's electrical grid, an engineering triumph of the twentieth century, is turning out to be a poor fit for the present. It's not just that the grid has grown old and is now in dire need of basic repair. Today, as we invest great hope in new energy sources--solar, wind, and other alternatives--the grid is what stands most firmly in the way of a brighter energy future. If we hope to realize this future, we need to re-imagine the grid according to twenty-first-century values. It's a project which forces visionaries to work with bureaucrats, legislators with storm-flattened communities, moneymen with hippies, and the left with the right. And though it might not yet be obvious, this revolution is already well under way. Cultural anthropologist Gretchen Bakke unveils the many facets of America's energy infrastructure, its most dynamic moments and its most stable ones, and its essential role in personal and national life. The grid, she argues, is an essentially American artifact, one which developed with us: a product of bold expansion, the occasional foolhardy vision, some genius technologies, and constant improvisation. Most of all, her focus is on how Americans are changing the grid right now, sometimes with gumption and big dreams and sometimes with legislation or the brandishing of guns. The Grid tells--entertainingly, perceptively--the story of what has been called "the largest machine in the world†?: its fascinating history, its problematic present, and its potential role in a brighter, cleaner future.
