That’s right — and teen health expert Dr. Meg Meeker has the data and clinical experience to prove it. After more than twenty years of counseling girls, she knows that fathers, more than anyone else, set the course for their daughters’ lives. Now, she shows you how to strengthen — or rebuild — your bond with your daughter, and use it to shape her life, and yours, for the better. Directly challenging the feminist attack on traditional masculinity, Dr. Meeker demonstrates that the most important factor for confident, well-adjusted women is a strong father with conservative values. To have one, she shows, is the best protection against eating disorders, failure in school, STD’s, unwed pregnancy, and drug or alcohol abuse — and the best predictor of academic achievement, successful marriage, and a satisfying emotional life.

9. 365 Manners Kids Should Know

by Sheryl Eberly

Why do today’s children have such appallingly bad manners? One reason is that, for at least a generation, manners training in the home has been neglected; indeed, many parents have forgotten some basic rules of etiquette themselves. Now, Sheryl Eberly, a former White House aide to Nancy Reagan, gives parents an accessible plan for teaching (and learning!) good manners that begins in the home and covers every social situation and etiquette opportunity children will encounter. Far more than a simple rule book, “365 Manners Kids Should Know” provides anecdotes, advice, and activities for turning rules into habits.

8. The Truth About Muhammad
by Robert Spencer

As American and European leaders continue to assure us that true Islam is peaceful, and formulate foreign and domestic policy on that basis, it is more important today than ever before for non-Muslims to know exactly what Islam’s founder, Muhammad, actually did and taught. Now, in “The Truth About Muhammad: Founder of the World’s Most Intolerant Religion,” Robert Spencer provides a frank and accurate picture of the Muhammad that Muslims around the world revere: a warlord who preached violence, ordered the assassinations of his enemies, and used his “divine revelations” for his personal self-aggrandizement.

7. Conservative Comebacks to Liberal Lies
by Gregg Jackson

It happens to all of us: we’re debating some liberal friend or colleague when he makes an unsupported claim we’re just positive is false – but we don’t have the hard facts to prove it. Or we’re confronted with slick arguments for, say, legalizing “gay marriage,” but aren’t quite ready with the strongest counter-arguments. Now there’s help. In “Conservative Comebacks to Liberal Lies,” Boston talk-radio host Gregg Jackson provides tightly argued, fully documented responses to no fewer than 241 of the most common claims made by the Left on all the most important political, social, and cultural issues of our day.

6. America Alone
by Mark Steyn

Are you ready for a conflict between America and the rest of the world? In “America Alone: The End of the World As We Know It,” Mark Steyn (the most widely read and wittiest columnist in the world today) argues that that’s just what’s coming. European and Islamic anti-Americanism, he explains, threatens to leave us isolated in the world: the global situation is rapidly reaching a point at which America will have to confront the enemies of civilization without help from anyone else. And when the world is divided between America and the rest, all those who don’t want to see the world shrouded in a new Dark Ages should hope that America wins.

5. The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades)
by Robert Spencer

When PC propagandists assure us that jihadist terror doesn’t reflect “true,” “peaceful” Islam, they’re not only wrong, they’re dangerous — because they lull America and the West into letting their guard down against their mortal enemy. And not only do self-appointed “experts” lie elaborately and persistently about Islam — they have also replaced the truth about Christian Europe and the Crusades with an all-pervasive historical fantasy that is designed to make you ashamed of your own culture and heritage — and thus less determined to defend it. But now there’s a remedy: in “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades),” Robert Spencer reveals all the disturbing facts about Islam and its murderous hostility to the West that other books ignore, soft-pedal — or simply lie about.

4. The Heritage Guide to the Constitution
by Edwin Meese, ed.

The U.S. Constitution refers to itself as “the supreme Law of the Land.” Yet today it is the Supreme Court, rather than the Constitution itself, which most determines our fundamental law — often based on non-constitutional (even non-American) premises, such as international law. Now, under the supervision of former Attorney General Edwin Meese, and in conjunction with the nation’s preeminent conservative think tank — The Heritage Foundation — “The Heritage Guide to the Constitution” brings together more than 100 of the nation’s best conservative legal scholars to provide the first ever clause-by-clause examination of the complete Constitution, revealing its real meaning according to the original intent of the Framers. Considering the centrality of Constitutional interpretation to nearly every major issue dividing our nation, this is one book that belongs in every conservative’s library.

3. The Trivium
by Sister Miriam Joseph Rauh

Save 11%

“The Trivium” is a rigorous and utterly delightful presentation of the three areas that form the basis for all learning: logic, grammar, and rhetoric. Sister Miriam Joseph Rauh, a professor of English at St. Mary’s College for thirty years, helps you see the unity and harmony of these three areas as she gives you solid and easily-grasped explanations of even their most abstruse elements: not just general grammar, but also propositions, syllogisms, enthymemes, fallacies, poetics, figurative language, and metrical discourse! Attractively laid out to maximize clarity, this book is also packed with lively examples, exercises, and illustrations drawn from the works of Shakespeare, Milton, Plato, and others. The examples are so rich that they’re a literary education in themselves.

2. Godless: The Church of Liberalism
by Ann Coulter

Save 32%

In “Godless: The Church of Liberalism,” Ann Coulter shows how liberal hostility to traditional religion stems from the fact that liberalism is itself a religion — a godless one. And, Coulter reveals, thanks to the liberals who dominate our courts, our government bureaucracies, our schools, and our media, liberalism is now the established religion of our country. Fearlessly confronting the high priests of the Church of Liberalism and ringing with Coulter’s razor-sharp wit, “Godless” is the most important and riveting book yet from one of today’s most lively and impassioned conservative voices.

1. The Life and Religion of Mohammed
by J.L. Menezes

Fr. J.L. Menezes knew Islam up close: as a priest in India, he devoted his priestly life to introducing that nation’s tens of millions of Muslims to Christianity. With this life of Mohammed, he left us the record of his appeals: a frank, honest, and exhaustively researched exploration of the life of the “prophet” of Islam, the development and contents of the Koran, and an introduction to various Muslim sects.
