In February 1940, the Nazis established what would become the second largest Jewish ghetto in the Polish city of Lódz. Its chosen leader: Mordechai Chaim Rumkowski, a sixty-three-year-old Jewish businessman and orphanage director, and the elusive, authoritarian power sustaining the ghetto's very existence. From one of Scandinavia's most critically acclaimed and bestselling authors, The Emperor of Lies chronicles the tale of Rumkowski's monarchical rule over a quarter of a million Jews. Driven by a titanic ambition, he sought to transform the ghetto into a productive industrial complex and strove to make it - and himself - indispensable to the Nazi regime. Drawing on the chronicles of life in the Lódz ghetto, Steve Sem-Sandberg captures the full panorama of human resilience, and questions the nature of evil. He asks the most difficult questions: Was Rumkowski a ruthless opportunist, an accessory to the Nazi regime driven by a lust for power? Or was he a pragmatic strategist who managed to save Jewish lives through his collaboration policies?

P.T. Mudd is a boy with an active imagination who loves to tell tall tales. But his wildest stories become reality when he discovers a magical stone that transports him to Muddlia, a land where he becomes the crown prince. There's only one problem: everyone in Muddlia believes everything they're told. So, they naturally believe P.T. when he tells them that he is the greatest hero in the world, and they also trust him when he says that the Ultimate Evil of the Universe, Blotto Ratspaw, is putting together an army on the edge of their fair land. Although the people of Muddlia have never known war, they follow P.T.'s advice to create their own army to save Muddlia from Ratspaw. Joined by new friends Chicki-Baby, a big blue talking chicken, and Belinda Bosh, a girl his own age who dreams of being a great champion, P.T. leads the trusting Muddlians off to war. As P.T. boldly leads his loyal subjects, things begin to go terribly wrong. Unexpectedly, P.T. and his army are fighting against a very real, very nasty enemy. Now, P.T. must make an awful choice. Will he save the innocent Muddlians, or think only of himself and escape back to home and safety?

This reexamination of the controversial role Emperor Hirohito played during the Pacific War gives particular attention to the question: If the emperor could not stop Japan from going to war with the Allied Powers in 1941, why was he able to play a crucial role in ending the war in 1945? Drawing on previously unavailable primary sources, Noriko Kawamura traces Hirohito�s actions from the late 1920s to the end of the war, analyzing the role Hirohito played in Japan�s expansion. Emperor Hirohito emerges as a conflicted man who struggled throughout the war to deal with the undefined powers bestowed upon him as a monarch, often juggling the contradictory positions and irreconcilable differences advocated by his subordinates. Kawamura shows that he was by no means a pacifist, but neither did he favor the reckless wars advocated by Japan�s military leaders.
