Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0965320839, Hardcover)

Bill Murchison has gathered the best of his recent columns on culture, morals, religion, education, and the other truly important things in life. It's not that politics is meaningless. But, as Murchison argues in his opening chapter, the modern notion of politics as the principal means to human happiness is worthy of as hearty a rejection as we can muster. Subsequent chapters are devoted to reflections on statesmen and rogues, saints and sinners, and modern manners, as well as matters closer to home: love and death, fathers and sons, and the misadventures of the Episcopal Church. Transcending the headlines of the day, these essays treat subjects of perennial concern in a fresh and lively way. There's More to Life Than Politics opens with a foreword by William F. Buckley Jr., Murchison's comrade in arms and the godfather of the modern conservative movement in America.
