In 1982 he founded The Rutherford Institute, a nonprofit civil liberties organization dedicated to the defense of constitutional and religious freedom. He is the author of many critically acclaimed books, including Grasping for America, a book and companion documentary series that traces humanity's search for meaning in the 20th century.

Format: Paperback
John W. Whiteheads' book, "The Second American Revolution" is a brief and concise examination of the Constitutional Law
by which American Citizens have the lawful right, the parental right, to education their children as a private alternative of Public Schooling.

The fascinating element in all of the case law cited in this small book, is that the landmark 1972 case,
WISCONSIN v. YODER, 406 U.S. 205 (1972) which establishes private and homeschooling as a Lawful Right, and a FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT of American parents, is also cited for specific objection, in the book by New Atheist author Richard Dawkins.

Those who have read Dawkins propagandistic publication, will understand the entirety of Dawkins absurd arguments, if they have first studied this slender volume by John W. Whitehead.

Facts of the Case:

Jonas Yoder and Wallace Miller, both members of the Old Order Amish religion, and Adin Yutzy, a member of the Conservative Amish Mennonite Church, were prosecuted under a Wisconsin law that required all children to attend public schools until age 16. The three parents refused to send their children to such schools after the eighth grade, arguing that high school attendance was contrary to their religious beliefs.

Question:

"Did Wisconsin's requirement that all parents send their children to school at least until age 16 violate the First Amendment by criminalizing the conduct of parents who refused to send their children to school for religious reasons?

Format: Paperback
This is one of the most valuable books I ever read. Mr. Whitehead explains, in a style suitable for intelligent laymen as well as lawyers, just how federal judges butchered our glorious federal Constitution beyond recognition.

Format: Paperback
Excellent summary of how/why Constitution is structured the way it is and why it has endured. Clear analysis of where things went wrong and how to bring them in line w/ original intent. Excellent first book on the subject from astute Constitutional lawyer Whitehead who defends rights of religious liberty in an increasingly hostile era unintended by the framers.

Format: Paperback
Whitehead wrote a lucid and accessible work tracing the philosophical underpinnings of the transformation of US law and culture from it's traditional Judeo-Christian roots to its current morass.

Rather than splashing around in shallow talking points arguments, this work explores the roots of our culture's downward spiral. It's not hard to see the destination the progressives are progressing toward once it's pointed out. Ignore liberal taunts and ridicule of conservatives as anachronistic and dull-witted -- read this book and see for yourself that the emperor has no clothes.

If you want to know how in Hell we got where we're at and where modern progressivism is taking us, read this book. Whitehead's writing is neither shrill nor ponderous, but rather witty, well reasoned and thoroughly documented. It would even be a fun read if the issues weren't so soberingly serious. When I finished reading it, I paced back and forth in my house, fuming mad at the revisionist crap I'd been spoon fed in high school and college -- so many lies. This book can be liberating and even cathartic. If you want to peek under the shabby veneer of progressivism and see what liberals are really foisting on us and how, this is a great start. It's not the least outdated. By the same author, THE STEALING OF AMERICA is also excellent.
