Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

Two books added to the pile on my nightstand

Paul Kengor was kind enough to send me a copy of his new book The Crusader: Ronald Reagan and the Fall of Communism, both escapism for these dark times and a reminder of the role Republican Presidents can play in articulating and carrying out a principled foreign policy.

I also just received a review copy of Michael Keren’s Blogosphere from the good people at Rowman & Littlefield. The publisher’s promotional material describes the book this way:

Michael Keren compares bloggers to terrorists, arguing that while the methods advocated by the two groups are obviously very different, they both represent a similar trend, one of diversion by respected but disenchanted citizens from the norms of civil society to a fantasy world in which the excessive use of words—or bombs—would make everybody listen.

Provocative, eh? R&L, by the way, is offering a discount on web orders, so if you want to be provoked, go to their website to order the book.
