The bulk of the book is classic Brookhiser. Short, pithy and insightful description of history and its impact/significance. But it is also an argument about American nationalism and the need for remembering who we are and how we got here.
Expecting Follett in this little book to live up to the promise of his subtitle is simply expecting too much. For the love of Notre-Dame, this is the book you want. For an understanding of Notre-Dame, look elsewhere.
Goldberg does not deny the tensions involved in this conservative project within a liberal democratic capitalist system but rather accepts it as the challenge we face. The question is whether we are up to it.
From New York Times bestselling author John U. Bacon, a gripping narrative history of the largest manmade detonation prior to Hiroshima. A great book on a very unfamiliar subject.
Both a gripping tale of spy craft and a moving personal story, Spies in the Family is an invaluable and heart-rending work.
An excellent narrative of the blue-collar destroyers. Destroyers did not have the firepower of battleships or cruisers or the glamour of the aircraft carriers, but they had the grit and versatility to be vital parts of the U.S. war effort in the Pacific.
No matter your opinion of George W Bush, the 43rd President of the United States, a lot of momentous events happened during his eight years in office; from the controversy of his election to 9/11 from Iraq and Afghanistan to Katrina and TARP. Getting his perspective on them is worthwhile.
A gripping tale of the bond between three brothers and how two of them do everything they possibly can to rescue the other one. The book is not only an excellent story, but also a fine tribute to the bond of brothers at war.
