Slouching Towards Gomorrah
Judge Bork, one of our nation's most distinguished conservative scholars offers a prophetic view of a culture in decline, a nation in such serious moral trouble that its very foundation is crumbling. Of our own President, Bork writes: "Thirty years ago, Clinton's behavior would have been absolutely disqualifying.... It is difficult not to conclude that something about our moral perceptions and reactions has changed profoundly. If that change is permanent, the implication for our future is bleak." Bork has brilliantly encapsulated a nation and a culture on the brink. He courageously sounds an alarm for all Americans.

Bluestocking Guide: Justice
"A Bluestocking Guide: Justice" is designed to reinforce and enhance a student's understanding of the subject matter presented in the primer "Whatever Happened to Justice" an Uncle Eric book by Richard J. Maybury. Comprehension Questions are given for each chapter and may include Definition, True/False, and/or Short Answer/Fill-in questions. Answers are located in the back of the study guide.  (Note: student answers to some questions/exercises do not always have definitive answers, in which case the notation "answers will vary" will appear.) Application Exercises are also given. Generally, these ask the student to apply the knowledge he/she learned from a given chapter to "real world" situations so that the student may personalize the information and better retain and apply the knowledge gained from the primer.  Application Exercises typically include Discussion, Essay, and Research assignments. A comprehensive final exam is also included. In addition to assisting the student in the retention of the subject matter, the study guide will serve as documentation of course completion. Timeframe for Study: Bluestocking Guides are organized to allow the instructor flexibility in designing the ideal course of study for the student. Therefore, there is no "right" or "wrong" timeframe for covering the material; the instructor should tailor the study of the primer and study guide to the student's unique school schedule, learning style and age. For example, younger students might only complete comprehension exercises in the study guide, whereas older students may complete additional application exercises and suggestions for further reading/study. Ideally, the student should read the chapter from the primer and then immediately answer the corresponding questions in the study guide. For Essay and Research assignments, a project may require several days or weeks to complete. It is best that the instructor preview these assignments to select those most appropriate for the student and the timeframe available. An easy-to-apply rule of thumb for determining length of study is to divide the number of chapters in a primer by the number of weeks the instructor plans to study the subject/book.  Some instructors may choose to complete the primer in a few short weeks, in which case multiple chapters may need to be covered for each lesson period.  Others may cover the primer over the course of a semester, in which case only one or two chapters per week will need to be assigned. (Note:  Chapter lengths vary, so sometimes a student may easily be able to read more than one chapter per lesson.)  The key is to move quickly enough so that the student is engaged with learning and also able to absorb all concepts fully. The student's performance on end-of-chapter Questions and Assignments from the study guide should be a good indication of this. This guide is 8-1/2" x 11" in size.

Description of the primer, "Whatever Happened to Justice": Explains the Legal Model and explores America's legal heritage. Shows what's gone wrong with our legal system and economy and how to fix it. Contains lots of helpful hints for improving family relationships and for making families and classrooms run more smoothly. Discusses the difference between higher law and man-made law, and the connection between rational law and economic prosperity. Introduces the Two Laws: 1) Do all you have agreed to do, and 2) Do not encroach on other persons or their property. Maybury examines: 1) There is a higher law than any government's law, 2) The government's law often contradicts Higher Law, 3) individuals must choose which law they will support and defend. This book is selling all over the world. Readers say it causes them to think like nothing has in years. This primer is recommended for ages 14+ for courses in Law, Economics, Business, Finance, Government and History.

This Land of Strangers: The Relationship Crisis That Imperils Home, Work, Politics, and Faith
Relationships are collapsing. It is the crisis that everyone feels but that has gone unnamed.  We see the pieces: families disintegrating; communities in chaos; businesses losing the trust of customers and employees; political and religious discourse that sows dysfunction and divide. Yet until now, the dots have not been connected that reveal the larger narrative. Cumulatively, our broken relationships have a death grip on economic, political, and social advancements that capitalism, democracy, and social initiatives have been unable to break. This crisis feeds an emerging caste system: Individuals and organizations that possess superior relationships thrive, while those with deteriorating relationships are destined to decline. In This Land of Strangers, Robert Hall lays the crisis bare, and you will be shocked at the magnitude of destruction he reveals.

Hall's best-selling business book, The Streetcorner Strategy for Winning Local Markets, helped spawn the customer relationship management movement. Now, with deep passion and insight borne from three decades of study, he widens the lens to look at the breadth of our relational decline and the societal trends that got us here. Focusing on four key domains - home, work, politics, and faith - he presents wide-ranging research that explores the unraveling of our life-giving relationships and the attendant costs. He debunks the assumption that we can build better lives and a stronger society on crumbling relationships.

With engaging narrative style and stories, Hall looks at modern life through the prism of relationships. He challenges readers to embrace three aims that will reverse the forces that gave birth to today's land of strangers to usher in a new era - the Age of Relationship.
