READING: A Conservative’s Treatise on American Government brings with the meaning of the Constitution’s core, which holds the keys to successful republican governance. The book then describes their distortion by the Federal government’s three branches, followed by one modern Conservative’s view of the corrections needed to return our government to working for is, instead of on us. Finally, the book is a clarion call for all Americans to confirm the realignment elections of 2010 in 2012 and beyond. The author finishes with this challenge from Leonidas to one who demand he lay down the implements of Greek freedom: “Come and take them.”

READING: Donald Pisani's history of perhaps the boldest economic and social program ever undertaken in the United States--to reclaim and cultivate vast areas of previously unusable land across the country—shows in fascinating detail how ambitious government programs fall prey to the power of local interest groups and the federal system of governance itself. What began as the underwriting of a variety of projects to create family farms and farming communities had become by the 1930s a massive public works and regional development program, with an emphasis on the urban as much as on the rural West.
