Even before publication, this extraordinary book -- the personal and political manifesto of America's new Speaker of the House -- has already ignited a firestorm of controversy, sparking a national debate and generating a week of headlines from coast to coast.
After 17 years in Congress, Newt Gingrich's day has finally arrived; since becoming Speaker of the House, he has appeared on the cover of both "Time" and "Newsweek." A nation desperate for renewal is clamoring to hear his message: Our precious institutions can be rescued from decay only through personal motivation and faith.

This tidal wave of interest began with the American people, who turned the U.S. House of Representatives upside down in the November 1994 election, delivering a clear message to the Federal government and empowering the first Republican-dominated Congress in 40 years.

"To Renew America" draws on the Speaker's impressive command of American history to demonstrate how we can renew our civilization "culturally, educationally, economically and politically." This renewal depends on recovering the five key elements that have been all but entirely lost from the national life: personal strength, entrepreneurial free enterprise, the spirit of invention and discovery, commitment to quality and the lessons of American history.

"To Renew America" is an epochal statement that resonates with the political outlook that Newt Gingrich has championed for a quarter century. But it is much more: richly personal and anecdotal, the book reveals the private person behind the compelling public persona, showing Newt Gingrich as a man very much of his own time and generation.

Classic for conservative thinkers. ( )

This book offers a good insight into the so-called "Republican Revolution" of 1994. The Newt-led Republicans where not heartless Nazis who wanted to throw grandma in the gutter and feed her dog food. They were concerned with responsible government. ( )

I tried to read this to understand where the ultra-right wingers are coming from, but I couldn't make it through the first chapter. ( )

Responding to the concerns Americans feel for their safety, their value systems, and their children's future, Newt Gingrich calls for a return to mainstream American civilization and the basic principles upon which our country was founded. Citing the Six Challenges that we must face as a nation, he reveals commonsense solutions to the issues we care about most, such as welfare, balancing the federal budget, shifting power from the bureaucracy to the citizenry, and confirming America's leadership in the Information Age. With characteristic bluntness, Newt Gingrich describes his political allies and adversaries as he shares personal recollections of his historic first hundred days as Speaker. He also delivers practical approaches to issues as diverse as bilingualism, illegal immigration, multiculturalism, and health care. For months, worldwide media attention has swirled around Speaker Gingrich as he has reawakened American political debate. To Renew America is, finally, the opportunity to encounter the man himself and his dramatic vision of our nation's future.
