Details

The American Cause explains in simple yet eloquent language the bedrock principles upon which America's experiment in constitutional self-government is built. Russell Kirk, whose life and thought has been featured in C-SPAN's acclaimed "American Writers" series, intended "this little book" to be an assertion of the moral and social principles upholding our nation. Kirk's primer is an aid to reflection on those principles—political, economic, and religious—that have united Americans when faced with challenges and threats from the enemies of ordered freedom. In this new age of terrorism, Kirk's lucid and straightforward presentation of the articles of American belief is both necessary and welcome. Gleaves Whitney's newly edited version of Kirk's work, combined with his insightful commentary, make The American Cause a timely addition to the literature of liberty.

What They're Saying...

"In The American Cause, Russell Kirk undertakes the task of ensuring that those who defend America have more than bullets and guns at their disposal."
Religion & Liberty

"[T]his volume is a welcome reminder of what is good and worthwhile in our heritage, and it is hoped that, in the post-September 11 era, some strength still might be drawn from that tradition."
First Things

"One of the best books prompted by post-9/11 national soul searching was actually written almost half a century before the terrorist attacks. Russell Kirk's 1957 classic The American Cause has now been made available in a new edition, and it gives a noble and energetic summary of what we are fighting for in this current war…."
National Review

"In The American Cause, Kirk succeeds masterfully in his aim to revive America's founding principles. This short, easy-to-read book should be required reading for every student."
