is a book about recent American history, covering the time period from 1988 to 2008. It covers the events from the selection of George H. W. Bush as a presidential candidate to the election of Barak Obama.
The general picture William Bennett is painting is the drastic turns that America has taken in the past two decades and how those changes have affected the world. He knows many of the people in the book and is able to give readers a view that we normally would never see.
Bennett chronicles the successes and failures of our nation’s leaders in a way that remains interesting, even though the events are recent history and may still be fresh in our minds. Bennett shows that, in spite of our many challenges and failures, there is still hope for the American dream and the Christian value system.
This is a well-written book that builds on the concepts of his last two books: America, the Last Best Hope volumes 1 and 2. It is very interesting and easy to read. It is an enlightening journey as he shows how politics has affected the American home and family.
Bennett’s conservative slant is obvious, but he does not give conservatives a free pass or condemn all liberal’s actions. He is very fair and firm.
I highly recommend every work of William J. Bennett, including this one. Five out of Five stars!
