Cincinnati Book Publishing announces the September 2015 release of The American Dream, a long-awaited analysis of the current state of the American Dream by the late Michael F. Ford. The book was published in cooperation with the Center for the Study of the American Dream, Xavier University. Ford reveals the many myths about the Dream, and identifies the present threats to its continuance. After a long and distinguished career as a senior political strategist, Ford returned to his alma mater, Xavier University, in Cincinnati, and founded the Center for the Study of the American Dream IN 2008. At the time of his death in late 2013, Mr. Ford had just finished writing this book. The book includes a Foreword by Roger A. Fortin, Professor of History and Distinguished Service Professor, Xavier University and an Afterword by Zane L. Miller, a Charles Phelps Taft Professor Emeritus of History, University of Cincinnati. J. Patrick Ford, the author's brother, contributed the Prologue. Ford was an advisor for high-level political campaigns, including nine presidential campaigns, and he managed more than 100 gubernatorial, U.S. Senate, Congressional, and mayoral campaigns across the United States. Among the many tributes to his life and work published here is an especially relevant one from the national political consultant and journalist Joe Trippi, who wrote, "No one I know thought more about the American Dream, and worked harder to defend and save it, than Mike Ford. His book is his torch passed on to each of us to keep our unique American Dream alive."
The American Dream is an inspiring and provocative read. Available at Amazon.com, Cincybooks.com, and in select bookstores.
208 pages. Softbound. $19.95. Bibliography, index.

CBP is pleased to announce the release of the ebook and print book: Black Walls Turn Gray. This novel by combat veteran Brad Jones is about the consequences of modern warfare and the struggles that veterans face in readjusting to civilian life. Young, fit, and from a military family, Corporal Quince Magowan sees serving his country as his patriotic duty. Unfortunately, fighting in his generation's war proves to be more than just a physical battle. This is a compelling story of filial and romantic love, of friendship, duty and heroism, and of America's challenges in treating its veterans for the invisible wounds of modern warfare. Author and Afghanistan veteran Brad Jones brings this great American dilemma home in Black Walls Turn Gray, his first published novel. This is an important book, which will inform and inspire. It is by turns heart-breaking and heart-warming, but ultimately life-affirming. Book clubs will be rewarded with its rich material for lively discussions.
