Description - Things That Matter by Charles Krauthammer
A brilliant stylist known for an uncompromising honesty that challenges conventional wisdom at every turn, Krauthammer has for decades daz-zled readers with his keen insight into politics and government. His weekly column is a must-read in Washington and across the country. Now, finally, the best of Krauthammer s intelligence, erudition and wit are collected in one volume. Readers will find here not only the country s leading conservative thinker offering a pas-sionate defense of limited government, but also a highly independent mind whose views on feminism, evolution and the death penalty, for example defy ideological convention. Things That Matter also features several of Krautham-mer s major path-breaking essays on bioeth-ics, on Jewish destiny and on America s role as the world s superpower that have pro-foundly influenced the nation s thoughts and policies. And finally, the collection presents a trove of always penetrating, often bemused re-flections on everything from border collies to Halley s Comet, from Woody Allen to Win-ston Churchill, from the punishing pleasures of speed chess to the elegance of the perfectly thrown outfield assist.
