About the book:

Newt Gingrich has become a highly controversial person in the American poitical arena. Leading his party into the first Republican domination of both houses of the Congress in 40 years, Gingrich represents a turning point in national priorities and policy. In this book, Gingrich outlines his social and political philosophy, a manifesto that proposes a radical change in policy-making to counteract the decay of American civilization. A nation desperate for renewal is clamouring to hear his message: precious institutions can be rescued from decay, only through personal motivation and faith. This work draws on the Speaker's impressive command of American history to demonstrate how to renew civilization culturally, educationally, economically and poitically. This renewal depends on recovering the five key elements that have almost been lost from the national life: personal strength, entrepreneurial free enterprise, the spirit of invention and discovery, commitment to quality and the lesson of American history. Using these five pillars of renewal as a framework, Gingrich puts forward a range of proposals which should influence political thinking across the world. These proposals include: replacing the welfare state with an opportunity society; dealing more strongly with the problems of illegal immigration and multiculturalism; establishing English as the national language; protecting the rights of American citizens to bear arms; and overhauling the education system and spending less on alleviating poverty.
