After the New York Rangers missed the NHL playoffs for the third consecutive season in '99-2000, big changes were in the air at Madison Square Garden. Glen Sather was hired as team president/general manager, and he named Ron Low coach and brought back Mark Messier, the captain of the Rangers' 1995 Stanley Cup championship team. In "Nightmare on 33rd Street: A Long Season with the New York Rangers," veteran hockey beat writer Rick Carpiniello takes a day-by-day, game-by-game journey with a team in transition. From the preseason to the season's bitter end and the important offseason dealings, Carpiniello brings hockey fans inside the locker rooms and boardrooms and onto the ice with a team struggling to regain its winning form. Sather, the architect of championship clubs in Edmonton, discovers that running a team in the big city is a different story. In trying to find the right mix of talent, players are traded or sent to the minors while others are brought to the big club in their places. Constant trade rumors and turmoil sweep through the locker room. Key Ranger players, including goalie Mike Richter, fall victim to injury. Coach Low juggles the everchanging roster, while captain Messier, now 40 years old, attempts to rally the troops. Nightmare on 33rd Street is an inside look at the tumultuous New York Rangers' 2000-01 season by a seasoned observer of the hockey scene.

In the 1830s, the French aristocrat Alexis de Tocqueville warned that "insufferable despotism" would prevail if America ever acquired a national administrative state. Today's Tea Partiers evidently believe that, after a great wrong turn in the early twentieth century, Tocqueville's nightmare has come true. In those years, it seems, a group of radicals, seduced by alien ideologies, created vast bureaucracies that continue to trample on individual freedom. In Tocqueville's Nightmare, Daniel R. Ernst destroys this ahistorical and simplistic narrative. He shows that, in fact, the nation's best corporate lawyers were among the creators of "commission government" that supporters were more interested in purging government of corruption than creating a socialist utopia, and that the principles of individual rights, limited government, and due process were built into the administrative state. Far from following "un-American" models, American state-builders rejected the leading European scheme for constraining government, the Rechtsstaat (a state of rules). Instead, they looked to an Anglo-American tradition that equated the rule of law with the rule of courts and counted on judges to review the bases for administrators' decisions. Soon, however, even judges realized that strict judicial review shifted to courts decisions best left to experts. The most masterful judges, including Charles Evans Hughes, Chief Justice of the United States from 1930 to 1941, ultimately decided that a "day in court" was unnecessary if individuals had already had a "day in commission" where the fundamentals of due process and fair play prevailed. This procedural notion of the rule of law not only solved the judges' puzzle of reconciling bureaucracy and freedom. It also assured lawyers that their expertise in the ways of the courts would remain valuable, and professional politicians that presidents would not use administratively distributed largess as an independent source of political power. Tocqueville's nightmare has not come to pass. Instead, the American administrative state is a restrained and elegant solution to a thorny problem, and it remains in place to this day.

Nightmare Alley begins with an extraordinary description of a freak-show geek—alcoholic and abject and the object of the voyeuristic crowd’s gleeful disgust and derision—going about his work at a county fair. Young Stan Carlisle is working as a carny, and he wonders how a man could fall so low. There’s no way in hell, he vows, that anything like that will ever happen to him. And since Stan is clever and ambitious and not without a useful streak of ruthlessness, soon enough he’s going places. Onstage he plays the mentalist with a cute bimbo (before long his harried wife), then he graduates to full-blown spiritualist, catering to the needs of the rich and gullible in their well-upholstered homes. It looks like the world is Stan’s for the taking. At least for now.

The George W. Bush administration’s ambitious—even breathtaking—claims of unilateral executive authority raised deep concerns among constitutional scholars, civil libertarians, and ordinary citizens alike. But Bush’s attempts to assert his power are only the culmination of a near-thirty-year assault on the basic checks and balances of the U.S. government—a battle waged by presidents of both parties, and one that, as Peter M. Shane warns in Madison’s Nightmare, threatens to utterly subvert the founders’ vision of representative government. Tracing this tendency back to the first Reagan administration, Shane shows how this era of "aggressive presidentialism" has seen presidents exerting ever more control over nearly every arena of policy, from military affairs and national security to domestic programs. Driven by political ambition and a growing culture of entitlement in the executive branch—and abetted by a complaisant Congress, riven by partisanship—this presidential aggrandizement has too often undermined wise policy making and led to shallow, ideological, and sometimes outright lawless decisions. The solution, Shane argues, will require a multipronged program of reform, including both specific changes in government practice and broader institutional changes aimed at supporting a renewed culture of government accountability. From the war on science to the mismanaged war on terror, Madison’s Nightmare outlines the disastrous consequences of the unchecked executive—and issues a stern wake-up call to all who care about the fate of our long democratic experiment.

Grotesk, dunkel und bizarr. Definitiv ein Leckerbissen für Noir-Fans. Stanton Carlisle lernt die schmutzigen Tricks der Jahrmärkte und wird zum skrupellosen Gauner. Er gibt sich als spiritueller Guru aus, um die Reichen und Schwachen auszunehmen. Doch sein Spiel der Täuschungen und Lügen treibt ihn geradewegs in die Albtraumgasse ... Mit effektiver Atmosphäre und außergewöhnlicher Prosa geschrieben, ist Nightmare Alley mehr als ein großes Drama: Stantons entschlossener Aufstieg und der unvermeidliche Sturz ins Verderben ist die röntgenscharfe Durchleuchtung des 'american dream'. Nightmare Alley erscheint im Festa Verlag als deutsche Erstveröffentlichung. Time magazine: 'Nightmare Alley kombiniert die gruselige Welt von Tod Brownings Film Freaks mit dem eigenwilligen Zynismus eines Jim-Thompson-Romans.' Palm Beach Post: 'Stan Carlisle ist ein gutaussehender Betrüger, der sich langsam die Nahrungskette hinabarbeitet – ein Roman, in den kein Lichtstrahl eindringt.' Los Angeles Times: 'Der ›Albtraum‹ des Titels trifft es genau ... der amerikanische Traum wird umgedreht. Die Vorstellung, dass die menschliche Kreatur in einer Falle lebt, der sie niemals entfliehen kann, stammt aus der Seele des Autors. Nie war Noir autobiografischer ... Nightmare Alley bleibt ein Meisterwerk. Das menschliche Tier ist allein, hilflos angesichts des Schicksals, und stolpert durchs Dunkel.' James MacBride: 'Ein 1A-Guignol mit einem Hauch von schwarzer Magie.' Jack Conroy: 'Gresham hat etwas von Nelson Algrens gehässiger Kraft, mit der er die Menschen der untersten Schicht darstellt.' Chicago Reader: 'Dieser Roman verschlingt geröstete kleine Cormac McCarthy-Romane zum Frühstück.'
