Description

Responding to the concerns Americans feel for their safety, their value systems, and their children's future, Newt Gingrich calls for a return to mainstream American civilization and the basic principles upon which our country was founded. Citing the Six Challenges that we must face as a nation, he reveals commonsense solutions to the issues we care about most, such as welfare, balancing the federal budget, shifting power from the bureaucracy to the citizenry, and confirming America's leadership in the Information Age. With characteristic bluntness, Newt Gingrich describes his political allies and adversaries as he shares personal recollections of his historic first hundred days as Speaker. He also delivers practical approaches to issues as diverse as bilingualism, illegal immigration, multiculturalism, and health care. For months, worldwide media attention has swirled around Speaker Gingrich as he has reawakened American political debate. To Renew America is, finally, the opportunity to encounter the man himself and his dramatic vision of our nation's future.… (more)
