Coulter, Ann H.

Summary: Conservative commentator Ann Coulter attacks the immigration issue head-on, flying in the face of La Raza, the Democrats, a media determined to cover up immigrants' crimes, churches that get paid by the government for their "charity," and greedy Republican businessmen and campaign consultants -- all of whom are profiting handsomely from mass immigration that's tearing the country apart....

Frank, Thomas

Krebs, Justin

What if casual conversations revolved around Fox News and the decline of American values? How wouldyou feel if you were afraid to put a political bumper sticker on your car or had to think twice about what liberal posts you liked on Facebook?...

Gray, John

Summary: Turning his back on neoliberalism, voicing 'the end of history' and the unstoppable spread of liberal values across the globe, Gray's was a lone voice of scepticism. The thinking he criticised would lead to the invasion of Iraq. Today, its folly might seem obvious, but Gray has been trying to warn us for years.

Kittelstrom, Amy

Summary: "Today we associate liberal thought and politics with secularism. When we argue over whether the nation's founders meant to keep religion out of politics, the godless side is said to be liberal. But the role of religion in American politics has always been far more nuanced and complex than today's debates would suggest and closer to the heart of American intellectual life than is commonly...

Shapiro, Ben.

Summary: "From the editor-at-large of Breitbart.com, a timely and compelling look at how liberals use bullying toward their opponents on today's top political issues. Bullying is an urgent topic on many minds and lips today. After the "It Gets Better" program was sanctioned by Obama himself, the left turned bullying into one of its most beloved pet issues.

Beinart, Peter.

Summary: Journalist Beinart offers a new liberal vision, based on principles liberals too often forget: that America's greatness cannot simply be asserted; it must be proved. That to be good, America does not have to be pure. That American leadership is not American empire. And that liberalism cannot merely define itself against the right, but must fervently oppose the totalitarianism that blighted...

Fraser, Steve

Summary: "No political metaphor in recent American history has enjoyed the impact of the "limousine liberal." It has managed to mobilize an enduring politics of resentment directed against everything from civil rights to women's liberation, from urban renewal to the war on poverty, from gay rights to the welfare state, from affirmative action to environmental regulation--and everyone from FDR to Hillary...

Krastev, Ivan

Summary: Why did the West, after winning the Cold War, lose its political balance?In the early 1990s, hopes for the eastward spread of liberal democracy were high. And yet the transformation of Eastern European countries gave rise to a bitter repudiation of liberalism itself, not only there but also back in the heartland of the West. In this brilliant work of political psychology, Ivan Krastev and...

Kruse, Kevin Michael

Summary: "We're often told that the United States is, was, and always has been a Christian nation. But in One Nation Under God, historian Kevin M. Kruse reveals that the idea of 'Christian America' is an invention--and a relatively recent one at that. As Kruse argues, the belief that America is fundamentally and formally a Christian nation originated in the 1930s when businessmen enlisted religious...

Riley, Jason (Jason L.)

Summary: "This book explains why so many efforts by liberals to help the black underclass not only fail but often harm the intended beneficiaries. The intentions behind welfare programs may be noble, but in practice they have slowed the self-development that was necessary for other groups to advance. Minimum-wage laws may lift earnings for people who are already employed, but they also have a long...
