A Preview: Krauthammer’s Things That Matter

Coming in October 2013 from Crown Forum is the long-awaited collection of Charles Krauthammer’s writings. Things That Matter will present his penetrating and surprising reflections on everything from embryo research to entitlement reform, from Halley’s Comet to border collies, from Christopher Columbus to Martin Luther King, from drone warfare to American decline. 

 

Krauthammer has for decades dazzled readers with his keen insight into politics and government. Now, the best of Krauthammer’s intelligence, erudition and wit are collected in this one volume. With a special, highly autobiographical introduction in which Krauthammer reflects on the events that shaped his career and political philosophy, this personal chronicle of American life is a unique publishing event, years in the making.
