Today the integrity and unity of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution are under attack by the Progressive political movement. And yet, writes Larry P. Arnn: “The words of the Declaration of Independence ring across the ages. The arrangements of the Constitution have a way of organizing our actions so as to produce certain desirable results, and they have done this more reliably than any governing instrument in the history of man. Connect these arrangements to the beauty of the Declaration and one has something inspiring and commanding.” From Chapter 2, The Founders’ Key Dr. Arnn, president of Hillsdale College, reveals this integral unity of the Declaration and the Constitution. Together, they form the pillars upon which the liberties and rights of the American people stand. United, they have guided history’s first self-governing nation, forming our government under certain universal and eternal principles. Unfortunately, the effort to redefine government to reflect “the changing and growing social order” has gone very far toward success. Politicians such as Franklin Roosevelt found ways to condemn and discard the Constitution and to redefine the Declaration to justify government without limit. As a result, both documents have been weakened, their influence diminished, and their meaning obscured—paving the way for the modern administrative state, unaccountable to the will of the people. The Founders’ Key is a powerful call to rediscover the connection between these two mighty documents, and thereby restore our political faith and revive our free institutions.

The award-winning author of Founding Brothers and The Quartet now gives us a deeply insightful examination of the relevance of the views of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and John Adams to some of the most divisive issues in America today. The story of history is a ceaseless conversation between past and present, and in American Dialogue Joseph J. Ellis focuses the conversation on the often-asked question "What would the Founding Fathers think?" He examines four of our most seminal historical figures through the prism of particular topics, using the perspective of the present to shed light on their views and, in turn, to make clear how their now centuries-old ideas illuminate the disturbing impasse of today's political conflicts. He discusses Jefferson and the issue of racism, Adams and the specter of economic inequality, Washington and American imperialism, Madison and the doctrine of original intent. Through these juxtapositions--and in his hallmark dramatic and compelling narrative voice--Ellis illuminates the obstacles and pitfalls paralyzing contemporary discussions of these fundamentally important issues.

America’s decline—is it real? What’s causing it? Can we do anything about it? The Christian voice needs to be raised in all of life but particularly when the stakes are high. America is at an almost irreversible crossroads. Does God have a preference in our ways and what we do? In the Old Testament, landowners would not harvest the corners of their fields, leaving them for the poor to harvest. Interesting model—need, compassion, giving, work—quite different from the entitlement programs in our day. Are we leading people out of poverty? Are we creating incentives to work or not work? Margaret Thatcher said “a rising tide lifts all boats.” When the economy is strong, everyone benefits from the growth—the rich, the poor, and those in between. What does God say or teach about capitalism or the free market in the Old and New Testaments? Does He say anything about Marxism? Are democratic programs to help the poor the only way to follow the Lord’s teaching on helping the poor? Are democratic programs really accomplishing what they are supposed to?

This twenty-third volume of documents in the official biography of Winston Churchill is the last step in a journey that began fifty-seven years ago, and for which the preparations were made decades earlier. One will find in this volume a letter that Churchill wrote to his son Randolph in 1960: "I think that your biography of Derby is a remarkable work, and I should be happy that you should write my official biography when the time comes. But I must ask you to defer this until after my death. I would not like to release my papers piece-meal, and I think that you should wait for the time being and then get all your material from my own Archives and from the Trust. In any case I do not want anything to be published until at least five years after my death."Here Churchill finalizes a suggestion he had made years earlier: his son Randolph was to be his official biographer. The work would begin two years later, in 1962, when Randolph hired the young historian Martin Gilbert as his research assistant. They would inherit a treasure trove of information, to which they would then proceed to add in both volume and value over the ensuing decades. The documents from which this biography has been written come from hundreds of archives, but mostly from that of Churchill himself. Not only did he live the large life that this biography describes, he began at an early day to preserve the evidence of it. Churchill made a practice, even a principle, of conducting his business in writing.

This volume tells Churchill's story from August 1945 through October 1951. During this time, Churchill traveled 55,000 miles, wrote more than 700 pieces of correspondence, delivered over 250 speeches, and authored nearly a dozen new articles as well as his memoirs of the Second World War. He lost the premiership to Clement Attlee of the Labour Partyin 1945 and then won it back in 1951 at nearly seventy-seven years old. He holidayed in France, Italy, and Morocco, visited America twice, and campaigned against socialism throughout Great Britain. He delivered his famous speech in Fulton, Missouri, where he made reference to the "iron curtain" and explained the principles and strategy that led to victory in the Cold War. All the while, he strove to do what he could as Leader of the Opposition to unify Europe, strengthen Britain, and maintain a close and special relationship with the United States.
