Excellent Sources on American Values


Victor Davis Hanson, Historian)

Mr. Hanson is one of my favorite current authors. He speaks with experience and authority. He doesn’t demonize people, but presents the rational, level-headed case for whatever he writes.


Dennis Prager: Still the Best Hope, Why the World Needs American Values to Triumph, Harper Collins Publishers, 2012

One of the best books I have ever read that presents the case for traditional American Values, and why they are so important to preserve our freedom. He respectfully and clearly lays out the threats that are insidiously destroying our freedoms.

Dennis Prager is also the President of Prager University, a conservative institution that teaches American Values in the context of current American social life and politics.


Michael Medved; The American Miracle, Divine Providence in the Rise of the Republic; Crown Forum Publishing Group, a division of Penguin Random House LLC, 2016

Mr. Medved shows that at every step of the way, Divine Providence has been evidenced in the development and survival of the USA.


Michael Medved, The 10 Big Lies about America, combating destructive distortions about our Nation, Three Rivers Press, 2008.

Another excellent enlightenment combating some of the current distortions about America and American values and policy.


Roger L. Simon, I Know Best, How Moral Narcissism is Destroying Our Republic, if it Hasn’t Already, Encounter Books, 2016.

“In America, we all think we know everything, and my opinion must be the right one”. Mr. Simon explains how this attitude is destroying us.


George Gilder, Knowledge and Power, the Information Theory of Capitalism and how it is Revolutionizing our World, Regnery Publishing Inc, 2013

A stunning, intellectual defense of Capitalism, and how it preserves our freedom.


Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

The classic exposition of American Democracy and the dangers it faces. As pertinent now as it was when written in 1835.


F.A. Hayek, The Road to Serfdom

A classic exposition of why socialism and central planning are doomed to fail.


Ezra Taft Benson, This Nation Shall Endure, Deseret Book Company, 1977.

Ezra Taft Benson, Stand Up for Liberty, Teachings on Liberty, Compiled by Brian R. Mecham, Ezra Taft Benson Society, 2012


Maxims of Washington, The Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association, 1942
