Where We Stand: 30 Reasons for Loving Our Country
In these 30 essays, Roger Rosenblatt draws on his 27 years of reporting and commenting on America to reaffirm the core values of our complex and wonderful country. Famous for his ability to put wise and important ideas into witty and instructive prose, the prize-winning journalist and commentator provides comfort and resolve for Americans in a time of threat. With his charm and humor, Rosenblatt reminds us of the fundamental political and moral strengths of America.
During the last 30 years, Rosenblatt believes, we have been living outside history in a bubble of wealth and power. The events of September 11, 2001, have given us a chance to reacquaint ourselves with what the country stands for and what it should become. If we have lost our way as a country, it is because we have lost sight of the idealism on which America was founded. The fundamentals of American justice and society are more than America's virtues—they are standards by which a civilization measures its worth.

Review: Where We Stand: 30 Reasons for Loving Our CountryUser Review - Bern J - Goodreads
This book gave me some insights and appreciations into America that I didn't have before or had just plain forgotten. Wasn't it David Mamet that commented "We're a strange bunch of monkeys" ? This is a book to think over and that's good. Read full review
