America Lite How Imperial Academia Dismantled Our Culture (and Ushered in the Obamacrats) By  David Gelernter

America Light
America Light not a cheerful book, although the author leavens it with large helpings of humor. And he does manage to end on a hopeful note. He reminds readers that America has a history of over coming bad times. He declares that we will do it again. Read the review »

A Summons To Perdition by John L. Work

A Summons To Perdition is not a happy book. It is, as it’s subtitle states, a “novel of suspense.” John Work did a lot of research in writing this book and one can only hope that the dire picture he paints about the degree to which radical Islam has infiltrated American society and government is merely Work’s construct for the purposes of making a good story. If not, Work had best watch out for himself.Read the review »

Bloody Spring Forty Days That Sealed the Confederacy’s Fate By Joseph Wheelan

Bloody Spring
Bloody Spring is a valuable addition to the Civil War compendium. One reviewer said that the book reads like a novel and that is correct. Except, of course, readers already know how this story ends. Bloody Spring is well written and engrossing. But it is not a book that can be read with equanimity.Read the review »
