Contributing Editor William Voegeli updates his analysis of the unfolding drama in his cover essay, "The Meaning of the Tea Party." He is joined on the cover by Wilfred McClay, whose essay "The Sources of American Renewal" reminds us how American it is to find extraordinary virtues in the most ordinary places.
Two more essays look at what the government can and cannot achieve when it comes to the American economy. Robert J. Samuelson recalls the history of financial crises and outlines some lessons that we should have learned by now. And Richard Vedder explores the changing interpretations of the 20th-century's worst economic collapse, the Great Depression.In our book reviews, John J. Pitney, Jr., discusses Sarah Palin's appeal and Charles Murray explains why he still reads Ayn Rand. Denis Boyles asks how different America really is from Europe, and Terrence Moore and Christopher Flannery remind us of the importance of civic education. You will also find enlightening discussions of early American history, modern British history, plus Charles Dickens, Alexis de Tocqueville, Montesquieu, and more. Our correspondence section is particularly rich—filled with thoughtful reflections from some of our most intelligent friends on winning the War on Terrorism and understanding Abraham Lincoln.
