Summary
"A vigorous call-to-arms to reignite American citizenship at home and restore unapologetic American leadership abroad, through the timeless lens of Roosevelt's 'Citizenship in a Republic' speech, by the Fox News contributor and decorated veteran. Pete Hegseth makes an impassioned and experiential argument for how Teddy Roosevelt's articulation of 'good citizens,' 'equality of opportunity,' and unapologetic U.S. leadership--'good patriots'--can renew our imperiled American experiment and save the free world, in this fascinating, first-hand challenge to elite progressivism, ahistorical foreign policy, and status-quo politics. Despite contention surrounding Teddy Roosevelt's legacy, Hegseth argues that the Rough Rider's exhortation serves as a timeless wake-up call for our Republic. Hegseth resurrects Roosevelt's famous 'Citizenship in a Republic' address--best known for the 'Man in the Arena' quote--as a roadmap for addressing the massive challenges facing America today. In order to rejuvenate what makes America exceptional, we must unapologetically get back into Roosevelt's arena--as engaged 'good citizens' at home and powerful 'good patriots' in the world. Bolstered by gripping personal experience, Hegseth channels Teddy Roosevelt's words to make a case for turning America's highest ideals into action through the gritty virtues of citizenship, the dogged pursuit of equal opportunity, and aggressive commitment to winning the wars we fight--including the Iraq War. An exceptional American experiment was entrusted to 'average citizens' in 1776 and has been perpetuated by every generation since"--Provided by publisher
