HST Presents Political Science Cases From History, Learning And Applying Their Insights
To Develop More Effective Public Policies For The World We Live In
History Speaks Today seeks to identify critical conditions in today’s world - international, national,
local, personal – find and examine historical parallels and clearly articulate what history shows to be courses of actions for us to pursue (or, at least, to absolutely avoid).
The founders knew their history. It spoke to them. They carefully applied its lessons as they wrote the Declaration of Independence, crafted the
Constitution of the United States of America, and insisted on a Bill of Rights as its first ten Amendments.
Far too many of our citizens do not
know their own or others' history and its lessons for public policy. To their detriment, they blindly allow others, often similarly ignorant, to shape their destinies. They repeatedly drift into and through scenarios in ways that history warns against.
HST turns history into political science to derive practical guidelines for dealing with
today’s complex problems. Its unique approach examines relevant historical cases from which explicit lessons can be
drawn. Lessons are summarized in the form of clearly articulated and concise principles to guide today’s leaders, policy
makers, pundits and general citizenry. Each HST book is a reliable resource for a single area of public policy concern.
