  • Unifying the Country Starts with the Education System

    James G. Martin Center for Academic Renewal ^ | November 4, 2020 | Jenna A. Robinson
    Education reformer E.D. Hirsch may have discovered the cure for our current political divisions—but it won’t be easy. His prescription is a total overhaul of the K-12 education system as well as our schools of education. Hirsch lays out his plan in a new book, How to Educate a Citizen: The Power of Shared Knowledge to Unify a Nation. For many years, E.D. Hirsch has been an outsider in education circles. While the education establishment focused on critical thinking, child-centered education, and skills instruction, Hirsch insisted that content matters. Hirsch’s new book expands on that theme. In it, Hirsch repeats...

  • Egypt: How a Fiercely Christian Nation Became Fanatically Islamic

    American Thinker ^ | 10/28/2020 | Raymond Ibrahim
    One of the benefits of Adel Guindy’s new book, A Sword Over the Nile: A Brief History of the Copts Under Islamic Rule, is that it implicitly answers an important question: how and why did non-Muslim nations become Islamic?  In this case, how did Egypt go from being overwhelmingly Christian in the seventh century to being overwhelmingly Muslim in the twenty-first century?  To understand the significance of this question -- and because pre-Islamic Egypt’s profoundly Christian nature is often forgotten -- a brief primer is in order: Before Islam invaded, Egypt was home to some of Christendom’s earliest theological giants and...

    “The Perihelion” is a book by D.M. Wozniak. “The Perihelion Complete Duology”. It presents a United States several decades after the Second American Civil War. The United States is divided between the blue core cities and the "redlands", each with their own laws and culture. But the legacy of genetic engineering and systemic oppression mean tensions are slowly simmering in the blue cities themselves ...

    Scott Adams was one of the first people to predict President Trump’s victory in 2016. He was shunned by liberals and had events dropped for merely appreciating the “master persuader” skill-set though he disagreed with Trump’s politics. That Scott Adams was attacked online, his livelihood threatened, his girlfriend de-verified on Twitter twice as liberal Big Tech companies sought to punish him and those associated with him drove him to endorse Trump after endorsing Clinton for his literal safety. He later called these liberal bullies "Hillbullies." After Trump’s win and the confused liberal elites trying to figure out how it happened,...

The creator of the popular Tuttle Twins children’s book series, which reinforces libertarian values and free-market principles, saw his book sales surge after an established progressive magazine wrote a lengthy feature article attacking the books.

    Rich Higgins is the quintessential American patriot. A tough, blunt-spoken guy from the streets of Boston, he began his career as an Army bomb technician in the 1990s. He went from screening visitors to the Clinton White House, looking for hidden explosives, to clearing IEDs in Iraq, to working in the Trump administration as a national security expert, worrying about metaphorical boobytraps set by Obama holdovers and Deep State seditionists. Higgins’ new book, “The Memo: 20 Years Inside the Deep State Fighting for America First,” is an eye-opening and unique book for a political memoir. It is not heavy on...

    Centauri Dreams ^ | 10/2/2020 | PAUL GILSTER
    While we often discuss expansion into the Solar System as a step leading to interstellar flight, the movement into space has its dark side, as author Daniel Deudney argues in a new book. As Kenneth Roy points out in the review that follows, it behooves everyone involved in space studies to understand what the counter-arguments are. Ken is a newly retired professional engineer who is currently living amidst, as he puts it, “the relics of the Manhattan Project in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.” His professional career involved working for various Department of Energy (DOE) contractors in the fields of fire protection...

    Soapboxie ^ | October 5, 2018 | Tamara Wilhite
    Clinton Cash is a 2016 graphic novel about Hillary Clinton’s use and abuse of the Clinton Foundation, her political positions since Bill Clinton left office and other scandals. This book is unique for taking the form of a graphic novel while tackling multiple scandals and controversies in less than 150 pages. It is a shorter companion piece to longer book “Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich”. What are the pros and cons of this political “comic” book?

    . “If you were of the opinion that the United States wasn’t nearly as bad as Nazi Germany, how wrong you are,” proclaims sports commentator Jemele Hill (pictured above), citing Caste, a “masterpiece” of a book by Isabel Wilkerson. Quickly challenged, Hill pushed back that Nazi Germany “learned their systems of genocide by watching America,” and the Nazis “borrowed significantly from American racial laws,” which is why “some Nazi scholars were in America studying racial terror in the South.” A somewhat different perspective might emerge from a black person who actually lived in Nazi Germany and the United States. Consider,...

    D.B. Cooper: 40 years later November 24th, 2011, marks the 40th anniversary of the legendary Cooper case, an unsolved crime that has baffled agents, detectives and amateur sleuths, and spurned one of the greatest manhunts in law enforcement history. The FBI’s case file on D.B. Cooper runs some forty feet long. It is located in the basement archives of the Bureau’s field office in Seattle, where for four decades agents have hunted for the man who ransomed a passenger jet for a small fortune and parachutes, then jumped out the back over the rural Northwest, during the middle of a...

    In his new book, The Stakes: America at the Point of No Return, Michael Anton, now a lecturer and research fellow at Hillsdale College, again urges Americans to vote for Trump, disappointed though they may be with his performance, because they know even better than before how much this country’s ruling class would use control of the presidency to hurt us in our private and public lives for having dared to reject their mastery. Trump, imperfect as he is, is like a finger in a dike that, if removed, would loose a deluge. Anton describes how the Democratic Party-led complex...

    How to Be an Antiracist, by Ibram X. Kendi (One World, 320 pp., $27.00) In 2016, Ibram X. Kendi became the youngest person ever to win the National Book Award for Nonfiction.

In his follow-up, How to Be an Antiracist, Kendi––now 37, a Guggenheim fellow, and a contributing writer at The Atlantic––reveals his personal side, weaving together memoir, polemic, and instruction as he invites the reader...

Matt Drudge is now firmly a man of the progressive Left.” As such, scores of Drudge’s former conservative readers have now left the site for another rising conservative aggregate, Revolver.News, the Fox News host added. In April, President Trump tweeted that he “gave...
