Selected by the editors of Human Events
1. Economics in One Lesson
by Henry Hazlitt
An utter lack of understanding of economics pervades Congress. This little book puts the lie to the popular economic fallacies of the left and would be a great primer for the liberal House leadership.
2. The Truth About Syria
by Barry Rubin
How dangerous is Syria? Not dangerous enough to keep Pelosi away. Rubin reveals Syria to be, in the words of David Pryce-Jones, “the model of Arab tyranny.”
3. Mexifornia: A State of Becoming
by Victor Davis Hanson
San Fran Nan’s California has seen its welfare state expand as hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants have flooded across the Southern border. What will California and the U.S. become if we don’t get a handle on immigration?
4. The Heritage Guide to the Constitution
edited by Edwin Meese, Matthew Spalding and David Forte
Few liberals understand the Constitution — if they’ve even read it — and the principles of the men who wrote it. If Speaker Pelosi wants to lead correctly, she needs to learn how to govern within the parameters the Framers established.
5. More Guns, Less Crime
by John Lott
As evidence of their lack of constitutional understanding, the left believes the rubes of America need to be protected from themselves and should be disarmed. Lott explains why gun ownership helps prevent crime.
6. Who Stole Feminism? How Women Have Betrayed Women
by Christina Hoff Sommers
Academic radicals and political zealots have pushed a dangerous agenda, pitting women against men. Sommers exposes the questionable feminist research and funding that undermines true equality.
7. Size Matters: How Big Government Puts the Squeeze on America’s Families, Finances, and Freedom
by Joel Miller
If Grandma Nancy really cares about the well-being of her family, she’ll cut government’s thousands of pages of regulations, millions of employees and trillions in tax revenue.
8. State of Fear
by Michael Crichton
Scare-mongers from Hollywood to Washington are using unscrupulous tactics to convince Americans to sacrifice their well-being to fight global warming. Crichton offers a fictional, but very believable, story of how these radicals are manipulating us.
by Ann Coulter
To protect America, our leaders — on the left and the right — need to understand that we face a greater threat from domestic moral terrorists who are intent on destroying our culture than we face from Muslim terrorists.
10. America Alone
by Mark Steyn
European and Islamic anti-Americanism threatens to leave us globally isolated. When America is forced to confront the enemies of civilization, to whom will Pelosi turn? Syria? We must fight for our culture now, before it’s too late.
