Show 265 Hugh Hewitt talks with New York Times war correspondent Dexter Filkins about his new book, The Forever War. And his look at the war in Afghanistan and Iraq. 15.9MB 69 minutes

About the book- From the front lines of the battle against Islamic fundamentalism, a searing, unforgettable book that captures the human essence of the greatest conflict of our time.

Through the eyes of Dexter Filkins, the prizewinning New York Times correspondent whose work was hailed by David Halberstam as "reporting of the highest quality imaginable,” we witness the remarkable chain of events that began with the rise of the Taliban in the 1990s, continued with the attacks of 9/11, and moved on to the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Filkins's narrative moves across a vast and various landscape of amazing characters and astonishing scenes: deserts, mountains, and streets of carnage; a public amputation performed by Taliban; children frolicking in minefields; skies streaked white by the contrails of B-52s; a night"s sleep in the rubble of Ground Zero.

We embark on a foot patrol through the shadowy streets of Ramadi, venture into a torture chamber run by Saddam Hussein. We go into the homes of suicide bombers and into street-to-street fighting with a battalion of marines. We meet Iraqi insurgents, an American captain who loses a quarter of his men in eight days, and a young soldier from Georgia on a rooftop at midnight reminiscing about his girlfriend back home. A car bomb explodes, bullets fly, and a mother cradles her blinded son.

Like no other book, The Forever War allows us a visceral understanding of today's battlefields and of the experiences of the people on the ground, warriors and innocents alike. It is a brilliant, fearless work, not just about America"s wars after 9/11, but ultimately about the nature of war itself.

Show 258 Dennis Prager talks to Charles Murray, best selling author, social scientist, and senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute. His new book is Real Education: Four Simple Truths for Bringing America's Schools Back to Reality. 7.9MB 34 minutes.

With four simple truths as his framework, Charles Murray, the bestselling coauthor of The Bell Curve, sweeps away the hypocrisy, wishful thinking, and upside-down priorities that grip America's educational establishment.

Ability varies. Children differ in their ability to learn academic material. Doing our best for every child requires, above all else, that we embrace that simplest of truths. America"s educational system does its best to ignore it.

Half of the children are below average. Many children cannot learn more than rudimentary reading and math. Real Education reviews what we know about the limits of what schools can do and the results of four decades of policies that require schools to divert huge resources to unattainable goals.

Too many people are going to college. Almost everyone should get training beyond high school, but the number of students who want, need, or can profit from four years of residential education at the college level is a fraction of the number of young people who are struggling to get a degree. We have set up a standard known as the BA, stripped it of its traditional content, and made it an artificial job qualification. Then we stigmatize everyone who doesn't get one. For most of America"s young people, today's college system is a punishing anachronism.

America"s future depends on how we educate the academically gifted. An elite already runs the country, whether we like it or not. Since everything we watch, hear, and read is produced by that elite, and since every business and government department is run by that elite, it is time to start thinking about the kind of education needed by the young people who will run the country. The task is not to give them more advanced technical training, but to give them an education that will make them into wiser adults; not to pamper them, but to hold their feet to the fire.

The good news is that change is not only possible but already happening. Real Education describes the technological and economic trends that are creating options for parents who want the right education for their children, teachers who want to be free to teach again, and young people who want to find something they love doing and learn how to do it well. These are the people for whom Real Education was written. It is they, not the politicians or the educational establishment, who will bring American schools back to reality.

Twenty-four years ago, Charles Murray’s Losing Ground changed the way the nation thought about welfare. Real Education is about to do the same thing for America’s schools.

About the Author

CHARLES MURRAY is the author of two of the most widely debated and influential social policy books in the last three decades, Losing Ground: American Social Policy 1950-1980 and, with the late Richard J. Herrnstein, The Bell Curve: Intelligence and Class Structure in American Life. He is the W. H. Brady Scholar at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington, D.C.

Show 256 The Drama of Obama on Racism: Analyzing Obama's Speech on Race. Michael Medved talks to author Wayne Perryman. 35 minutes 8MB

 From the publisher-  (text verbatim from rear cover) "After Senator Obama"s inspiring and thought-provoking speech on race, most Americans feel it is time to set the record straight regarding the origin of racism in America. Over the years, we have had several discussions on the subject, most of which focused on the relationship between blacks and whites. But seldom have we ever acknowledged the number of whites who gave their lives to wipe out this deadly social disease nor have we reviewed the role that politics played in establishing a racist society. Historians report that one party supported slavery and Jim Crow while the other party opposed them. They also report that one party was known as the Party of White Supremacy and the other party was known as Nigger Lovers. Senator Obama confirms this fact in his book: Dreams from my Father. He tells his readers how white Chicago Democrats vowed to vote Republican before they would vote for a black man (Harold Washington) to be mayor of Chicago. Many have confessed that the Senators March 18, 2008 speech was compelling, comprehensive and forthright and perhaps one of the greatest speeches on race since the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther Kings I Have a Dream speech. Although his speech touched the hearts of all American citizens, its fatal flaw was its failure to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth regarding who was really behind the efforts to divide our country by race. This book is an in-depth analysis of Obama's speech and contains information he chose not to include and information that Congressman Steve Cohen ignored when he introduced the Resolution to apologize to African Americans for slavery and Jim Crow (on July 29, 2008)."
