Codevilla argues that in present-day America, government has had a profound negative effect on societal norms. It has taught people to seek prosperity through connections with political power; it has fostered the atrophy of civic responsibility; it has waged a Kulturkampf against family and religion; and it has dug a dangerous chasm between those who serve in the military and those who send it in harm’s way. Informative and provocative, The Character of Nations shows how the political decisions we make have higher stakes than simply who wins elections.

Excellent and easy-to-read survey of nations and cultures, and how the political and social environments shape the people within them. Dr. Codevilla has a broad knowledge of many factors influencing society, and explains them well, making it easier for the rest of us to keep up with his brilliance.
