Summary
  • "Created and compiled by Charles Krauthammer before his death, this collection spans the personal, political and philosophical--including never-before-published speeches and a major new essay about the effect of today's populist movements on the future of global democracy."--Provided by publisher
  • Spanning the personal, the political and the philosophical, Krauthammer's essays display his penetrating wit and insight as well as his ability to identify the hidden moral truths that animate our politics and culture. Completed before his death in June 2018, this collection features the columns, speeches and unpublished writings that showcase the best of his original thought as well as his beliefs about what mattered most to him: friendship, family and the principles he lived by. -- adapted from back cover
