In a series of eleven essays, Kirk relates several issues to a common question: "Is the American Republic descending into decadence, or are the American people entering upon a renewal of belief and hope?" In doing so, he covers a wide range of subjects that beg answers and action, including "The American Mission, " "The Illusion of Human Rights, " "Prospects for American Education, " and "Can Virtue be Taught?" Kirk's views are trenchant, well supported, and far from commonplace. For instance, he takes a dim view of today's information age, but is not without hope: "It is not inevitable that the computer should supplant the poet."
