Richard Brookhiser discusses Way of the Wasp: How It Made America, and How It Can Save It, So to Speak.

Mr. Brookhiser talked about his book The Way of the WASP: How it Made America and How It Can Save It...So To Speak, published by Free Press. It is meant to show where America has come from and thereby discover where the country might be going. In the book, Mr. Brookhiser argues that the ethics of the WASPs formed American character and that progressive politics are a bad influence. The author adds that without the ideals of the WASPs, America will lose its way. He talked about the prevalence of WASP ideals and the current national inclination to return to the values of personal modesty, public service, and quiet steadfastness. He said that the perception of WASPs, though, is of a "pale, bloodless elite." According to Mr. Brookhiser, WASPs have influenced American life in virtually all areas such as culture, education, business, and religion. (timspalding)… (more)
