Amid reports that the retailers are hurrying the Christmas shopping season, and hobbled by a cold, I am taking the weekend off and opening the Hugh Store for holiday shopping.
There will be a couple of more offerings next week, including my latest on the rebuilding of the GOP, but here are three possible gifts for the HH Show listener on your list.
The War Against the West brings together the most important interviews I have done in the past four years with experts on the war against Islamist extremism. These experts range across the political and professional spectrum, but whether it is Looming Tower author Lawrence Wright, historian Victor Davis Hanson, New York Times reporter John Burns or General David Petraeus, each of the experts knows their subject matter thoroughly and brings crucial knowledge on the enemy to the conversation. The audio version will be available in a few weeks, but the book provides a primer to the essential facts about the enemy.
For younger readers on your list: A Guide To Christian Ambition has been issued in paperback, and remains a favorite gift for high school and college students as well as young adults looking ahead to careers in which they hope to influence the world for the good.
For everyone on your gift list who wishes they knew more about William Shakespeare but don’t know how to get started, send them my program with the United States Naval Academy’s David Allen White, one of the country’s great professors, who has been teaching the Midshipmen their Bard for more than a quarter century. This CD is all the introduction you will ever need to get hook on the great playwright.
And finally, for the HH Show junkie who wants to relive one of the most interesting years ever in radio, there’s the Best of the Hugh Hewitt Show massive CD pack, with 14 CDs of the best conversations of the year.
Buy one or all, and check back next week as the other new products for this season roll out.
