5.0 out of 5 stars A Century Turns and We Remember, March 1, 2010
This review is from: A Century Turns: New Hopes, New Fears (Hardcover)
A Century Turns
New Hopes, New Fears
William J. Bennett ©2009
ISBN 978-1-5955-169-6
Thomas Nelson Publishers
Hdbk, 273 pp., with bibliography, index.

On reading Bennett's book, many folks will say, "I remember hearing about that event (or issue) from a certain viewpoint--usually by biased media. How refreshing to read a balanced account from someone who knows the whole story."
William Bennett's conservative approach illustrates common sense. This engagingly written volume will inform those who care about our country and want to understand recent history.
Bennett was President Reagan's chair of the National Endowment for Humanities and later Secretary of Education. He was President Bush's drug czar. A special concern of Bennett's is American education systems. This prolific writer has founded and worked for `think tanks' that evaluate policies and actions of our government.
. On his radio call-in show, Bill Bennett's Morning in America he interviews leaders and moderates discussions. The New York Times voted Bennett the leading spokesman for the Traditional Values wing of the Republican Party but he's also respected by many Democrats. A number of his sixty-nine books were NY Times best-sellers. He may be best known for his Book of Virtues. This author knows key people involved in U.S. history from 1988 to 2008, the focus of A Century Turns, his latest book.
Bennett reviews elections, wars, the economy, scandals, presidential promises and accomplishments, 911, Islam, the Middle East, Congress and our newest president, among other interesting issues.
