The Case for Civility: Living Up to Our American Ideals

About Os Guinness

Os Guinness is a noted British scholar, former Brookings Institute and Woodrow Wilson fellow, and the author and editor of more than twenty books. His newest publication, The Case for Civility: Why  Our Future Depends on It, is a proposal for restoring civility in America as a model for fostering civility around the world. Guinness explores the ways Americans can live with their deepest differences, and he calls for an end to the polarization that threatens our nation’s principles of liberty, diversity, and unity.
