Before Nirvana and Pearl Jam, there was Alice in Chains. One of the most successful bands to come out of Seattle, their pioneering sound mixed grunge and metal in ways that continue to influence artists today. In the first biography ever written about the band, acclaimed journalist David de Sola goes beyond secrets, rumor, and gossip to tell their story. Based on a wealth of interviews with nearly everyone connected to the band, de Sola brings the band and its enigmatic members to life, exploring their rise to fame, behind-the-scenes conflicts and hijinks, the loss of two of their original members to drugs, and the resurrection of the band with new lead singer William DuVall. In the new book, "Fracture: Barack Obama, the Clintons, and the Racial Divide," MSNBC national correspondent Joy-Ann Reid looks at the history of race relations in the U.S. while tracing the political shifts in the Democratic Party through the relationship between the Clintons and Obama. "The fundamental question that the Democratic Party has faced over the last 50 years is what to do with Johnson’s legacy, whether to run away from it, which the party by and large did, really spearheaded by Bill Clinton, who really shifted the party to the right, as a corrective to what I think a lot of party leaders saw as the electoral consequences of embracing so much social change,” Reid said. Reid was the host of MSNBC’s "The Reid Report" and a press aide in the final stretch of Barack Obama’s Florida campaign in 2008.
