Rich Lowry is part of the literary panel at the new Freedom Academy Book Club.
We are grateful to Rich for this recommendation. His posts on The Corner can be found here.
Rich has a new book of his own out, called Lincoln Unbound: How an Ambitious Young Railsplitter Saved the American Dream–and How We Can Do It Again. I have a copy of this on the absurdly tall stack of unread books, my ever-growing anti-library!
* The other three are On Politics: A History of Political Thought: From Herodotus to the Present by Alan Ryan, and The Great Debate: Edmund Burke, Thomas Paine, and the Birth of Right and Left by Yuval Levin, neither of which I have read, and The End Is Near and It’s Going to Be Awesome: How Going Broke Will Leave America Richer, Happier, and More Secure by Kevin D. Williamson, which I did read. Williamson’s book is itself awesome, and similar in spirit to ours. Read it after you read America 3.0!
