Mailbox Monday: Suicide of the West by Jonah Goldberg

I got one new book last week and I am racing through it. What books came into your house?



Suicide of the West: How the Rebirth of Tribalism, Populism, Nationalism, and Identity Politics is Destroying American Democracy by Jonah Goldberg.

Goldberg examines how the ideas of democracy and liberty are at odds with our baser instincts so need to be re-learned and shored up, or lost. And since he can quote Game of Thrones as comfortably as John Locke, I'm entertained and educated!




Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday, a weekly "show & tell" blog event where participants share the books they acquired the week before. Visit the Mailbox Monday website to find links to all the participants' posts and read more about Books that Caught our Eye.

Mailbox Monday is graciously hosted by Leslie of Under My Apple Tree, Serena of Savvy Verse & Wit, and Vicki of I'd Rather Be at the Beach.
