America, Volume 1: The Last Best Hope by William J. Bennett
Reviewed by Alan Wolfe
Washington Post Book World
"I admit to a soft spot for William J. Bennett. To be sure, I disagree with him on most major issues, find his fondness for gambling morally troubling and do not share his enthusiasm for President Bush. But we have all too few former government officials and cable television talking heads who write books that actually deal with ideas. By and large, Bennett's books have been pretty good. I helped raise three children on his Book of Virtues, and they are the better for it. With his new venture, Bennett shifts focus from philosophy to history."
