A Reading List With New Common Sense

Posted By Julia Shaw On December 14, 2010 @ 4:00 pm In First Principles | Comments Disabled

It is that time of the year again: Christmas gift list [1] guides [2] are out. (Find out which book made both the Claremont Institute’s book list [3] and Virginia State Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli’s reading list [4]!)

If you are looking for the perfect gift, a good book for the airplane, or something to do while the in-laws are visiting, check out the New Common Sense book list. In addition to our First Principles perspective on the issues of the day, the weekly e-newsletter New Common Sense features a book of interest on the American Founding, Progressivism, Conservatism, and many other topics. Here are just a few of the books that we have featured this past year:

American Founding

The Constitution

Progressivism

Conservatism

Foreign Policy

History

Already own these books? Peruse the Heritage Bookstore and sign up for New Common Sense [22]. You never know what we’ll be reading next.
