Now, finally, the best of Krauthammer's writing, intelligence, erudition and wit are collected in this one volume. In this intriguing and thoughtful collection, Krauthammer presents a wide-ranging look at society and illuminates - with his own unique take-what it is that makes the American experiment vibrant and special.With a special introduction and careful annotation throughout, Krauthammer will reflect on his own writing and what course America has taken as he's observed it-this is a special publishing event, decades in the making.

He received the Pulitzer Prize and the William F. Buckley Award for Media Excellence.
