From America’s preeminent columnist, named by the Financial Times the most influential commentator in the nation, the long-awaited collection of Charles Krauthammer’s essential, timeless writings.
A brilliant stylist known for an uncompromising honesty that challenges conventional wisdom at every turn, Krauthammer has for decades dazzled 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 passionate 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 Krauthammer’s major path-breaking essays—on bioethics, on Jewish destiny and on America’s role as the world’s superpower—that have profoundly influenced the nation’s thoughts and policies. And finally, the collection presents a trove of always penetrating, often bemused reflections on everything from border collies to Halley’s Comet, from Woody Allen to Winston Churchill, from the punishing pleasures of speed chess to the elegance of the perfectly thrown outfield assist.
With a special, highly autobiographical introduction in which Krauthammer reflects on the events that shaped his career and political philosophy, this indispensible chronicle takes the reader on a fascinating journey through the fashions and follies, the tragedies and triumphs, of the last three decades of American life.
"The best American columnists make their
British counterparts look like bumbling amateurs,but none of them writes with
more sense,sensibility and sanity than the Washington Post's Charles
Krauthammer. Things That Matter
, selected from a lifetime of writing,
bears comparison with the greatest of American prose." -Daniel Johnson,
"Usually thought of as a conserva-tive, this
syndicated columnist has won both the left-wing People for the American Way’s
First Amendment Award and the right-wing Bradley Foundation’s first $250,000
Bradley Prize. Readers of all political persuasions will find plenty here that’s
thought-provoking and worthwhile." -Pittsburg
“Krauthammer’s first collection in more than 20
years is a priceless introduction to the columnist’s writing. And for those who
have thrilled at the sight of a Krauthammer byline for decades, Things That
is a window into the master polemicist’s habits of mind, heart, and
technique.” -Matthew Continetti, Commentary
decades, Charles Krauthammer has enriched American political discourse with his
sharply-honed analysis, humane values, and questing mind. From personal
meditations to learned examinations of history and policy, Things That
stands as a record of a transformative period in the American
experience, and a remarkable intellect at work.” -Henry A.
"Charles Krauthammer is not only the most influential
conservative commentator in America, his writing transcends the crush of daily
events and can be read, with profit, always." –David Brooks, New York
Times columnist and bestselling author of The Social
“Amid today's clutter of print and
cacophony of broadcast commentary, Charles Krauthammer's lapidary judgments
stand out, and stand the test of time. Literature has been called news that
lasts. Krauthammer's columns take journalism to the level of literature.”
–George F. Will, Washington Post columnist
