It takes a family : conservatism and the common good by Rick Santorum( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 787 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his first book, Senator Santorum articulates the humane vision that he believes must inform an effective and just public policy. At the heart of genuine conservatism lies an appreciation for the civic bonds that unite a community. Santorum demonstrates how such an approach to political, social, and economic problems offers the most promise for those on the margin of life: the poor, the vulnerable, and minorities who have often been excluded from opportunity in America. Building on Robert Putnam's discussion of "social capital," the habits of association and trust that are the preconditions of any decent society, Santorum assesses how well Americans have cared for the "fabric" of society. He explores various dimensions of social and cultural connection that are the foundation of the common good. And he presents policy proposals for the renewal of American society at all levels.--From publisher description
Choosing the right college : the whole truth about America's 100 top schools( Book )

7 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his introduction, former drug czar William J. Bennett supports this reference for its tough-minded analysis of the quality of instruction, the level of academic standards, the campus political atmosphere, and the extent to which the liberal arts tradition is respected. These evaluations are intended to help conservative parents and students steer away from colleges whose programs lean too heavily toward the political left; in effect, conversely, it can also help liberal-minded folk find the less tradition-bound schools. Entries describe and assess 110 top colleges and universities in essays of about 3,000 words, focusing on the school's academic, political, and social climates. They name outstanding professors, describe curricula, comment on the administration's policies towards issues such as sexual harassment and free speech, and describe the range of student organizations and activities found on campus. Quotes from students and professors are included. Entries also include information on tuition, enrollment, and SAT scores. This second edition contains 10 more essays, updated coverage of every school, a new essay on liberal learning, and increased coverage of student life

Who are the most influential thinkers, and which are the most important concepts, events, and documents in the study of the American political tradition?
