Allan Carlsons Book Should Be a Best-Seller
Like many people, Im very much impressed with Allan Carlson, president of the John Howard Center for Family, Religion and Society in Rockford. He made a talk the other night in Chicago on his book The American Way [ISI Books, Wilmington Del., 2004]. When I say his book should be a best-seller, I must clarify and say that as of now it isntbut with your help it should be. To a contemporary world of nay-sayers, Carlson points out that the U.S. is inarguably more family-centered than any other nation, that Theodore Roosevelt had much to do with the early family under-pinning and that his fifth cousin, Franklins New Deal, far from being (as my father maintained) the crossroads of evil, actively promoted the family. A nationally known expert who has testified often before Congress, he is this states enduring resource.
