“This brief, eloquent book is a beautiful tribute to patriotism, a besieged civic virtue.… The purpose of civics courses in the past was to instill respect for the principles that formed America. The question now, Mr. Berns notes, is whether the private realm can take up the slack. We are all beneficiaries of patriotism. Whether we are continuing the necessary task of making patriots is the challenge this profound book invites us to ponder.”—Wall Street Journal
