''America is exceptional, and all of us who believe in America must resolve to stand firmly for American Exceptionalism.''

So says Newt Gingrich in his blockbuster book A Nation like No Other. In this powerful and game-changing book, Gingrich explains what American exceptionalism really means, why the Left has waged an assault on it, and why a rededication to American exceptionalism is imperative to our country's survival. What is American exceptionalism? It is not the bragging of a pompous superpower. Rather, it is a system built on the unique belief that our rights do not come from the government but from God, giving honor and responsibility to the individual--not the state. So says the Declaration of Independence, argues Newt Gingrich.

''In America, the individual is sovereign, not the government,'' states Gingrich. ''That is why President Obama and the Left hate American Exceptionalism--it sets boundaries on the state and federal government's power.'' Featuring a ''10 Things We Wouldn't Have without American Exceptionalism'' section and taking on everything from President Obama to the 2012 elections to our country's long-term future, A Nation Like No Other is the defense of America that this country has been waiting for.

About the Author:

NEWT GINGRICH, former Speaker of the House, is well known as the architect of the ''Contract with America'' that led the Republican Party to victory in 1994. He and his wife, Callista, host and produce historical and public-policy documentaries. He is an analyst for the Fox News Channel and has published twenty-one books, including twelve New York Times bestsellers. He resides in McLean, Virginia, with his wife.

Review:

Belief in American Exceptionalism leads inexorably to a smaller, more effective, accountable, and limited government. The American revolutionaries did not shed their blood for the welfare state; nor did they aim to replace the arbitrary rule of King George and his multitude of New Offices’ and swarms of Officers,’ as stated in the Declaration of Independence, with their own oppressive bureaucracy. Instead, they fought for individual liberty—and that made America an exception among all other nations.”
