“Fire And Fury”: An Old Book With Same Name Sees Increase In Sales

DW.com News    Posted Thurs., Jan.11, 2017

While everyone is talking about “Fire and Fury,” an exposé of the Trump White House by journalist Michael Wolff, a book with the same name published in 2009 is seeing renewed sales.

Though critically-acclaimed, until just recently, the decade-old book, “Fire and Fury: The Allied Bombing of Germany, 1942-1945” had sold just 15,000 total copies.

Suddenly last week, however, online booksellers began marking an increase in sales that caught the attention of its author, Randall Hansen, a professor of political science in Toronto. Those sales came just as news of “Fire and Fury,” a book with the same name which is said to reveal the inner workings of a chaotic White House under President Donald Trump, was leaked.

Incredibly, sales of my https://www.amazon.com/Fire-Fury-Bombing-Germany-1942-1945/dp/045122759X/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1515215682&sr=8-2&keywords=fire+and+fury  have increased. Will I owe a larger royalty cheque to Bannon & Trump? If so, the irony will know no limits. #FireAndFury  

While the new book, written by journalist Michael Wolff, was released early due to popular demand, others appear to have bought the wrong book of the same name. “I don’t know how much of this is a mistake and how much of this is from new interest created by free advertising,” Hansen told The New York Times in an interview.

 Hansen’s scholarly work documents the aerial bombing campaign undertaken by the US and UK against Germany during World War II with an eye toward its impact on civilians. The interim director at the Munk School of Global Affairs at the University of Toronto who focuses on migration finds the renewed focus on his book — and its subject matter — an amusing twist.

In an interview with Canadian Broadcaster CBC, Hansen said, “It’s amusing, but my sales don’t matter. What I hope will happen is that in the moment when we have this demagogue, this unstable demagogue in the White House threatening war, that people who read my book will reflect on the morality of war and above all, the horrific consequences of war for civilians. And if that happens, this will have all not only been fun, but worth it.”

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
