Book cover from Who Was Andrew Jackson? by Douglas Yacka
Book › Paperback
Controversial in his day and still controversial now, President Andrew Jackson left his mark on American history.

Seventh President Andrew Jackson was a man of contradictions: quick tempered and brash, he often seemed to look for fights, but he was so devoted to his wife, he quit Congress twice to be by her side. He was a celebrated war hero who nevertheless most enjoyed his serene life in Tennessee.  Although he saw himself as a champion of the poor, he grew to be a rich plantation...

Book cover from The Mystery of Banking by Murray N. Rothbard
Book › Hardcover
Talk about great timing. Rothbard's extraordinary book unravels the mystery of banking: what is legitimate enterprise and what is a government-backed shell game that can't last. His explanation is clear enough for anyone to follow and yet precise and rigorous enough to be the best, textbook for college classes on the topic. This is because its expositional clarity--in its hitosry and theory--is essentially unrivaled.

Most notably, he uses the T account method of explaining the...

Book cover from NeoConservatism: Why We Need It by Douglas Murray
Book › Hardcover
Neo Conservatism: Why We Need It is a defense of the most controversial political philosophy of our era. Douglas Murray takes a fresh look at the movement that replaced Great-Society liberalism, helped Ronald Reagan bring down the Wall, and provided the intellectual rationale for the Bush administration's War on Terror. While others are blaming it for foreign policy failures and, more extremely, attacking it as a Jewish cabal, Murray argues that the West needs Neo-conservatism more than ever....
Book cover from Worship in the Presence of God by Frank J. Smith
Book › Paperback
Worship is special and it is dialogical in nature. It is also prescribed. The fact of being in God's special presence means that not only are general principles to be observed, but the very elements of worship have been written out beforehand. Written from a Reformed Presbyterian view of Scripture, Worship in the Presence of God is a collection of essays on the nature, elements, and historic views and practice of worship. Edited by Drs. Frank J. Smith and David C. Lachman, Worship in the...
Book cover from Childs Play: Sport in Kids Worlds (Critical Issues in Sport and Society) by Frank J. Smith
Book › Paperback
Is sport good for kids? When answering this question, both critics and advocates of youth sports tend to fixate on matters of health, whether condemning contact sports for their concussion risk or prescribing athletics as a cure for the childhood obesity epidemic. Child’s Play presents a more nuanced examination of the issue, considering not only the physical impacts of youth athletics, but its psychological and social ramifications as well. The eleven original scholarly essays in this...
