Product Description

The Founding Fathers were great students of history, and as such they could best represent what Americans - both in their time and in future generations - would need to understand and perpetuate for freedom, peace and prosperity to remain parts of American society. Some of these are familiar to most citizens, such as checks and balances between the three parts of government and that all men are created equal. Some are less well-known, like the avoidance of making alliances with our frindly nations and the 'genius of natural law'. Others are more nuanced than we might initially think, such as the sovereignity of the people and the advantages of a republic over a demoncracy. These are all discussed at length in The 5000 Year Leap. W. Cleon Skousen, a Mormon historian, writes outside of his belief system to address specifically American foundational governmental principles in this very comprehensive volume.

    An invaluable resource to refresh yourself on the billiance of our founding fathers. It would be great if every conservative could get one liberal/progressive to read this book! It should be the text book for high school civics classes.

    This is a must have book. I have never been a good student of history but this was awesome. It lays out in terms anyone can understand what the Founders were thinking when they put the nation together. It also shows you how far off the course we have become. Especially good read for the times we are in now. This book SHOULD be required reading in school, period.

    A must read for ALL. I wanted to cry and scream alternately as I read about our country's true foundations and how far we have come from what our Founding Fathers had in mind. This should be used as a manual in all history classes. I plan to have my teenagers read it and use it for some family discussions.
