HST presents political science – Learning From History, And Applying The Insights To Function More Effectively In The World We Live In Today
History Speaks Today seeks to identify critical conditions in today’s world, find and examine historical parallels and clearly show what history advises.
The founders knew their history. It spoke to them. They carefully applied its lessons as they wrote the Declaration of Independence, crafted the
Constitution of the United States of America, and insisted on a Bill of Rights as its first ten Amendments.
Far too many of today’s Americans, and their leaders, do not
know their own or others' history and its lessons. To their detriment, they blindly allow others to shape their destinies. They repeatedly drift into and through scenarios in ways that history warns against.
Bruce D. Thatcher turns history into political science to derive practical directions for dealing with
today’s problems. His unique approach examines relevant historical cases from which explicit lessons can be
drawn. Lessons are summarized in the form of clearly articulated and concise principles to guide today’s leaders, policy
makers, pundits and general citizenry. Each HST book is a reliable resource for a single area of current concern.
