NASHVILLE, TN – Center Street, an imprint of Hachette Nashville, is pleased to announce the acquisition of Defenseless by Dana Loesch, the outspoken conservative talk show host and political commentator. Senior Editor Kate Hartson acquired world rights from Keith Urbahn and Matt Latimer of Javelin.

In Defenseless, Loesch examines the motivations of the political left to grab the guns of law-abiding citizens, leaving vulnerable millions of Americans, especially women.  She digs deep into the history of the Second Amendment, looking closely at the advantage a no-guns policy would give to murderers, rapists, and other criminals.  She urges readers to fight back against what she sees as a hypocritical and unwarranted federal intrusion by policymakers who themselves rely on guns for their protection. The always provocative Loesch – who was once banned from CNN’s Piers Morgan for her support of self-defense—will present new reporting and offer surprising insights about gun control, while also offering a plan for reclaiming our rights and the security necessary for our peace of mind.

The book will publish in September 2014 and will be released simultaneously in hardcover and eBook formats.
