Summary
"Never has America's understanding of herself been more at risk than it is now. But if conservatives are to restore America, they need first to rearm themselves with the wisdom of true conservatism--and stepping up to the plate to offer just that is Dr. Benjamin Wiker. Readers of his rollicking 10 Books That Screwed up the World: And 5 Others That Didn't Help demanded this sequel, and now you have it -- ten books that could actually make the world better, plus four bonus books not to miss, and a warning about one celebrated book that has unfortunately led some conservatives astray"--Cover, p. 2
