What holds America together? In this classic work, Russell Kirk describes the beliefs and institutions that have nurtured the American soul and commonwealth. Beginning with the Hebrew prophets, Kirk examines in dramatic fashion the sources of American order. His analytical narrative might be called “a tale of five cities”: Jerusalem, Athens, Rome, London, and Philadelphia. For an understanding of the significance of America at the dawn of a new century, Russell Kirk’s masterpiece on the history of American civilization is unsurpassable. This edition includes a new foreword by the distinguished historian Forrest McDonald.

In this definitive history of the evolution of the Com- munist Party in America--from its early background through its founding in 1919 to its emergence as a legal entity in the 1920s--Theodore Draper traces the native and foreign strains that comprised the party. He emphasizes its shifting policies and secrets as well as its open activities. He makes clear how the party in its infancy "was transformed from a new expression of American radicalism to the American appendage of a Russian revolutionary power," a fact that Draper develops in his succeeding volume, American Communism and Soviet Russia. In his special, prescient way, Theodore Draper himself had the final words on American Communism: "It is like a museum of radical politics. In its various stages, it has virtually been all things to all men... There are many ways of trying to understand such a movement, but the first task is historical. In some respects, there is no other way to understand it, or at least to avoid seriously misunderstanding it. Every other approach tends to be static, one-sided or unbalanced." Draper correctly notes that the formative period of the American Communist movement has remained a largely untold and even unknown story. In part, the reasons for this are that the Communist movement, although a child of the West, grew to power in the Soviet East. But Draper rescues this chapter with deep appreciation for the fact that communism was not something that happened just in Russia, but also in the United States. This is a must read for scholars and laypersons alike. This volume is conceived as an independent and self-contained study of the American Communist movement.

As the author of The Conservative Mind and other seminal books, Russell Kirk is usually thought of as one of the American conservative political movement’s most important progenitors. But as this collection demonstrates, Kirk was perhaps at his best as an essayist. This volume also confirms that Kirk’s was principally a literary and historical conservatism that refused to fit the irreducible complexity of human experience to the requirements of any ideological straitjacket. With The Essential Russell Kirk, literary critic George A. Panichas captures the breadth and depth of Kirk’s intellectual project by gathering together forty-four of the most masterful of Kirk’s essays, along with a unique chronology told in Kirk’s own words and a substantial introduction that articulates the deep humanism that animated Kirk’s philosophy. The result is a carefully assembled volume that gives us a fuller picture of an extraordinary man and writer, one whose labors had, and continue to have, remarkable repercussions on the American literary and political landscape.

Gute Gründe für den Glauben an Gott und das Jenseits Ist der Tod das Ende? Ist es vernünftig, an ein Jenseits zu glauben? Und wenn ja, welche Konsequenzen hat dieser Glaube für uns? Diesen Fragen, die die Menschen seit Jahrhunderten beschäftigen, geht Dinesh D’Souza in bisher nie dagewesener Weise nach. Er verlässt sich weder auf göttliche Offenbarung noch auf religiöse Glaubenserlebnisse oder heilige Texte, sondern nähert sich dem Thema mit Logik, Wissenschaft und außerordentlicher Gelehrsamkeit. Auf der Basis neuester Erkenntnis der Wissenschaft, Philosophie und Psychologie zeigt D’Souza, warum die atheistische Kritik an Gottes- und Jenseitsvorstellungen irrational ist – und warum es als Konsequenz daraus rational ist, an das Leben nach dem Tod zu glauben. Denn nicht zuletzt verleiht der Glaube an das Jenseits dem Leben Sinn und Tiefe, und ist zugleich ein Weg zum Glück und ein Grund zur Hoffnung.
