to todayOCOs continuing political questions and conflicts a He also contributes an annotated bibliography covering all of Paul SimonOCOs twenty two books which will prove to be a handy guide to SimonOCOs publications br While Simon covered a broad spectrum of topics in his written works his mission throughout the years remained the same to urge his constituents to study and understand issues that affected their daily lives and to make the complexities of politics accessible to the average citizen An indispensable volume for voters and politicians alike The Essential Paul Simon compiles some of the most thought provoking writings from one of the keenest political minds in our nationOCOs history Years after their publication SimonOCOs eloquent and energetic conversations continue to provide witty informative guidance through the maze of American politics and inspire the development of spirited public discussion and debate a, In this revised edition of his earlier biography Paul Simon provides an inspiring account of the life and work of Elijah Lovejoy an avid abolitionist in the s and the first martyr to freedom of the press in the United States br br Lovejoy was a native New Englander the son of a Congregational minister He came to the Midwest in in pursuit of a teaching career and succeeded in running his own school for two years in St Louis Teaching failed to challenge Lovejoy however so he bought a half interest in the i St i i Louis Times i and became its editor In after experiencing a religious conversion he returned east to study for the ministry at Princeton Theological Seminary After his graduation Lovejoy was called back to St Louis by a group of Christian businessmen to serve as the editor of a new religious newspaper the i Observer i promoting religion morality and education It was through this forum that Lovejoy took an ever stronger stance against slavery br br In the slave state of Missouri such a view was not only b b unpopular but in the eyes of many criminal As a result Lovejoy and his family suffered repeated persecution and acts of violence from angry mobs In July in hopes of finding a more tolerant community in a free state he moved both his printing press and his family across the Mississippi River to Alton Illinois br br The move to Alton was a fateful one Lovejoy s press was dismantled and thrown into the river by a mob on the night of its arrival Lovejoy ordered a new printing press and it too was destroyed eleven months later A determined and dedicated man Lovejoy ordered a third press and city officials took special precautions to ensure its safety after delivery Nevertheless an organized and angry mob rolled this third press still in its crate into the river exactly one month after Lovejoy s second press had been destroyed A fourth press housed in a large stone warehouse and guarded by Lovejoy and his supporters met the same fate but only after a drunken mob had killed Lovejoy himself He was buried two days later November on his thirty fifth birthday No one was ever convicted of his murder br br Rather than suppressing the abolitionist movement Lovejoy s death caused an eruption of antislavery activity throughout the nation At a protest meeting in Ohio John Brown dedicated his life to fighting slavery and Wendell Phillips emerged from a Lovejoy protest meeting in Boston to become a leader in the antislavery fight br br Simon defines Lovejoy s fight as a struggle for human dignity and the oppressed He distinguishes Lovejoy as a courageous and admirable individual and his story as an important and enduring one for both the cause of freedom for the slaves and the cause of freedom of the press, With America suffering from the most mediocre court in history recent bloody confirmation battles in the Senate have confirmed one thing the process has run amuck Senator Simon a leading member of the Judiciary Committee provides an insider s viewpoint on the appointment process and reveals the maneuvering that goes on behind closed doors photographs, As we broaden our views embrace our differences foster advancements in science and technology and collaboratively strengthen the political social and educational underpinnings from which we build informed and productive lives we have much to be proud of as a nation and as a people br br br br But we are tempted particularly during times of political unrest and unbridled patriotism to ignore the far reaching repercussions of a society that caters to money and power In i Our Culture of Pandering i former U S Senator Paul Simon interrogates the arenas of politics media religion and education to decry the disturbing practices that confuse public service with profit making ventures or popularity contests that compromise the best interests of the broader population to appease a powerful few Boldly and eloquently contributing to a cumulative understanding of how we can build a sturdier more ethical foundation for the future Simon suggests proactive long term solutions to the problems that threaten our country s moral financial and intellectual well being problems that are increasingly exacerbated by our culture of pandering br br br br Lest we grow complacent and our nation static Simon urges us to demand more from the political candidates who chase dollar signs and cater to polls to raise our expectations of local and national media outlets that recycle gossip and peddle scandals while foreign policy and international news receive back page treatment or no treatment at all He asks us to consider the implications of churches that spend more money remodeling their buildings than helping those in need within their own communities and throughout the world and he presses us to acknowledge the staggering long term consequences of schools that drop their academic standards to sustain their reputations and maintain funding br br br br i Our Culture of Pandering i is a stalwart and earnest call to action from a steadfast and trusted advocate of progressive public policy Leavened with altruism and rich with compassion for citizens of America and beyond present and future this important and cautioning treatise advocates genuine leadership in the realms of politics media religion and education In his trademark lucid and synoptic style Simon supplements up to date examples of pandering in our society from a breadth of sources with commentary and interpretive wisdom garnered from a lifetime of public service
