Summer reading

NRO takes time out from politics to offer summer reading suggestions. The recommendations come from Richard Brookhiser, Nancy French, Kathryn Jean Lopez, David Pryce-Jones, Tevi Troy, Ian Tuttle, Hans von Spakovsky, and Kevin Williamson.

I can recommend two of the books cited. The first is Karl Rove’s The Triumph of William McKinley. I wrote about that book here and here.

The second is Yuval Levin’s The Fractured Republic, a brilliant analysis of the inability of both the left and the right to come to grips with the contemporary economic, social, and cultural reality. I only recently finished reading this book and plan to write about it soon.

STEVE adds: We’ll have in interview with Yuval about his book in an upcoming Power Line podcast.
