“A welcome reminder of what is good and worthwhile in our heritage.”
America’s history is under attack. Attempts to “reframe” our nation’s past now tell the American story as one of uninterrupted oppression.
These accounts gain traction in part because of widespread ignorance: study after study reveals that shockingly few people truly understand the complexity of America’s heritage.
So where can you turn for a reliable introduction to the principles on which America was built—a guide that isn’t driven by ideological agendas?
Look no further than this classic work by the esteemed writer and thinker Russell Kirk. In The American Cause, Kirk explains in simple yet eloquent language the political, economic, and moral principles that have shaped America’s experiment in constitutional self-government.
Kirk’s lucid and straightforward presentation of the articles of American belief is more necessary today than ever.
