Publisher's Description

"The solution for the modern GOP . . . Intellectual ammunition for the modern conservative movement." —SENATOR RAND PAUL


How can America recover from economic stagnation, moral exhaustion, and looming bankruptcy? Donald J. Devine shows the way.

Devine, a longtime adviser to Ronald Reagan, lays out a powerful case for the philosophical synthesis of freedom and tradition that Reagan said was the essence of modern conservatism. The secret of America’s success, he shows, has been the Constitution’s capacity to harmonize the twin ideals of freedom and tradition. But today, progressivism has so corrupted modern political thinking—in both parties—that leaders keep calling for the same failed tactics: more money poured into more big-government programs.

In America’s Way Back, Devine not only reveals where things went wrong, and why, but also points the way to reclaiming America’s freedom, prosperity, and creativity. The solution lies in a new "fusion" of traditional and libertarian thought.


 

Author Bio

Donald J. Devine is senior scholar at the Fund for American Studies and the author of seven other books. A longtime adviser to Ronald Reagan, he served as head of the federal civil service during Reagan’s first term, saving $6 billion in taxpayer money and reducing more than 100,000 nondefense bureaucratic slots.

 

Editorial Reviews

"Both enjoyable and compelling . . . An intellectual journey to be savored." —Mark Levin, nationally syndicated radio host

"The timing is right for [Devine’s] new book America’s Way Back. It lays out the course for a $7.99 renewal." —L. Brent Bozell III, syndicated columnist

"A tour-de-force critique." —Floyd BrownCapitol Hill Daily

"Intellectual yet highly readable . . . You will learn about concepts your university should have introduced to you, only now via Devine’s graceful writing, incisive analysis, instructive anecdotes, and a plan to restore America’s greatness." —Human Events

"An exceptional work . . . America’s Way Back deserves a wide reading." —Newsbusters

"You will gain more insight into the way we are governed today—and why—than [from] a whole shelf of comparable books." —Warning Signs

"I have long believed that the fusionist conservatism of Frank Meyer made for splendid politics (as in Ronald Reagan’s two presidential campaigns) but for poor and incoherent political philosophy. America’s Way Back forces me to reconsider." —Allan C. Carlson, president of the Howard Center for Family, Religion, and Society

"Must reading—an outstanding book that will be around for a long time to come." —Lee Edwards, author of William F. Buckley Jr.: The Maker of a Movement

"At last someone has produced a worthy successor to Frank Meyer’s classic In Defense of Freedom." —Edwin J. Feulner, the Heritage Foundation

"A trenchant critique of the flaws and failures of statist progressivism—and a powerful case for a revived conservative alternative. Conservatives of all stripes—and progressives too—will benefit from a close reading of this discerning and very timely book." —George H. Nash, author of The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America since 1945
