Pressestimmen

“Required reading…Krauthammer is among the very best—and this is the best of the best, selected by him, with an engaging and fascinating introduction…Amazingly fresh, and full of thought-provoking formulations and arguments.” –The Weekly Standard

 “A fantastic read, a cerebral read, a fun read.” –Guy Benson, Townhall

“It’s going to be a big hit.” –Bill O’Reilly, The O’Reilly Factor (October 21, 2013)

“Krauthammer’s assets include steel-trap logic, an epée wit, a profound sense of history, and a withering contempt for journalists who would rather cringe in the dark than bring the truth to light.” –City Journal

America, you’ve got to read this for your own great pleasure and relief.” Hugh Hewitt (October 31, 2013)

"The best American columnists make their British counterparts look like bumbling amateurs,but none of them writes with more sense,sensibility and sanity than the Washington Post's Charles Krauthammer. Things That Matter, selected from a lifetime of writing, bears comparison with the greatest of American prose." -Daniel Johnson, Standpoint

"Usually thought of as a conserva-tive, this syndicated columnist has won both the left-wing People for the American Way’s First Amendment Award and the right-wing Bradley Foundation’s first $250,000 Bradley Prize. Readers of all political persuasions will find plenty here that’s thought-provoking and worthwhile." -Pittsburg Tribune-Review

“Krauthammer’s first collection in more than 20 years is a priceless introduction to the columnist’s writing. And for those who have thrilled at the sight of a Krauthammer byline for decades, Things That Matter is a window into the master polemicist’s habits of mind, heart, and technique.” -Matthew Continetti, Commentary

“For three decades, Charles Krauthammer has enriched American political discourse with his sharply-honed analysis, humane values, and questing mind.  From personal meditations to learned examinations of history and policy, Things That Matterstands as a record of a transformative period in the American experience, and a remarkable intellect at work.” -Henry A. Kissinger
 
"Charles Krauthammer is not only the most influential conservative commentator in America, his writing transcends the crush of daily events and can be read, with profit, always." –David Brooks, New York Times columnist and bestselling author of The Social Animal
 
“Amid today's clutter of print and cacophony of broadcast commentary, Charles Krauthammer's lapidary judgments stand out, and stand the test of time. Literature has been called news that lasts. Krauthammer's columns take journalism to the level of literature.” –George F. Will, Washington Post columnist

“Blending high-mindedness with strong conservative values, he has commanded respect on both the extreme and moderate sides of the spectrum, becoming the closest thing the factionalized GOP could have to a spokesperson, a de facto opposition leader for the thinking right.” -POLITICO

Kurzbeschreibung

 From America’s preeminent columnist, named by the Financial Times the most influential commentator in the nation, the long-awaited collection of Charles Krauthammer’s essential, timeless writings.
 
A brilliant stylist known for an uncompromising honesty that challenges conventional wisdom at every turn, Krauthammer has for decades daz­zled readers with his keen insight into politics and government. His weekly column is a must-read in Washington and across the country. Now, finally, the best of Krauthammer’s intelligence, erudition and wit are collected in one volume.
 
Readers will find here not only the country’s leading conservative thinker offering a pas­sionate defense of limited government, but also a highly independent mind whose views—on feminism, evolution and the death penalty, for example—defy ideological convention. Things That Matter also features several of Krautham­mer’s major path-breaking essays—on bioeth­ics, on Jewish destiny and on America’s role as the world’s superpower—that have pro­foundly influenced the nation’s thoughts and policies. And finally, the collection presents a trove of always penetrating, often bemused re­flections on everything from border collies to Halley’s Comet, from Woody Allen to Win­ston Churchill, from the punishing pleasures of speed chess to the elegance of the perfectly thrown outfield assist.
 
With a special, highly autobiographical in­troduction in which Krauthammer reflects on the events that shaped his career and political philosophy, this indispensible chronicle takes the reader on a fascinating journey through the fashions and follies, the tragedies and triumphs, of the last three decades of American life.

Charles Krauthammer gehört sicherlich zu den bekanntesten Publizisten in den Vereinigten Staaten. Seit den achtziger Jahren erscheinen seine viel beachteten Texte in angesehenen Printmedien. Über einen Mangel an Auszeichnungen kann er sich auch nicht beklagen. Dabei war seine journalistische Laufbahn in jeder Hinsicht ungewöhnlich.
Nach seinem Medizinstudium an der Harvard-Universität arbeitete er zunächst als Psychiater in einem Klinikum in Boston, bevor er als gesundheitspolitischer Berater der Carter-Administration nach Washington ging. Bald darauf wurde er zu einem der Redenschreiber von Vizepräsident Walter Mondale. Anschließend wechselte er zum progressiven Vorzeige-Magazin "The New Republic“, wo er sich einen ersten Namen als scharfzüngiger Kommentator machte.
Es veränderte sich aber nicht nur sein beruflicher Werdegang. Seine politischen Ansichten unterlagen gleichfalls einem beachtlichen Wandel, der ihn letztlich auf die rechte Seite des ideologischen Spektrums transformierte. So unterstützte er die Außenpolitik der Regierung Reagan, was ihn zunehmend von den einstigen Weggefährten in der Demokratischen Partei entfremdete.
Das hier zu besprechende Buch bildet diese intellektuelle Entwicklungslinie gekonnt ab. Es enthält eine Sammlung von Beiträgen, die der Autor in den vergangenen drei Jahrzehnten veröffentlicht hat. Die meisten Artikel sind relativ kurz gehalten und stammen aus der Washington Post, für die Krauthammer seit langem eine wöchentliche Kolumne verfasst. Nur fünf Essays haben einen größeren Umfang und setzen sich vertieft mit spezifischen Problemen auseinander.

"Things That Matter" by Charles Krauthammer, who is winner of the Pulitzer Prize and named by The Financial Times the most influential commentator in US, is compilation of his weekly columns full of small wisdoms about government and politics, but also about many others interesting things which marked US in last thirty years.

Charles is saying that his views went through lots of changes during his career, starting as liberal and today being one of the most prominent conservative journalists.
And although I don't share his political views he must be admitted that he writes intelligently and thoughtful but, most importantly, in his writing he's not so strict, dividing things rigidly on black and white as many conservatives usually do.

Inside, reader won't find some new proposals or ideas, but it's nevertheless interesting to read his collection of writings about things that happened in 80's and 90's from this historical distance.
Besides being an anthology of his columns, a book provides additional part in which the author is speaking about the things that were changing his career, which influenced his writing style and philosophy in politics, which somehow explain and give more light to his gradual changes from one end of the political spectrum to the other.

So, although you don't need to necessarily agree with his political views, I nevertheless can recommend reading this book because Charles Krauthammer deserved it due to his style, erudition and intelligence.

I had never heard of Charles Krauthammer until I saw a TV documentation of him in the USA (I live in Europe), and was thoroughly impressed with his person. I looked in my kindle and found this collection of articles he has written. He has very realistic and deep insight into political matters, and gives very wise comments about them.

HASH(0x9190cc54) von 5 Sternen Expected to hate this book, was pleasantly surprised 30. Oktober 2013
Von George Waters - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I admit it: I got it wrong in my opinion of Charles Krauthammer. I thought he was just an unoriginal talking head mimicking the latest right-wing rhetoric. After reading this compilation of some three decades of his writing, I see that Krauthammer is a thoughtful intellectual. I may at times disagree with his perspective, but I can absolutely see now how gets to said perspective. The highly personal introduction is fascinating and sets the table for the writings that follow. His sense of humor and his sense of humanity come through in many passages. At times I actually laughed out loud at his writings; at other times I was enthralled by his ability to "paint with words" (most noticeably his column of September 12, 2001). Krauthammer is generally not divisive in his politics and, in fact, has evolved some of his beliefs over time as any reasonable person often does. He also has a real knack for taking difficult and at times abstract concepts and boiling them down to a comprehensible essence. Approach this book with an open mind, you just might find yourself enjoying it.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Charles Krauthammer is one of the most intelligent, lucid commentators and writers of our time. He is always insightful and fair. I trust his wisdom and have been looking forward for weeks for his book to come out. I downloaded it at midnight last night as soon as it was available, and started reading. It is everything I had hoped for and more. His is the voice of reason in politics and society today.

HASH(0x9190cf84) von 5 Sternen An evolution 23. Oktober 2013
Von Chris from the Midwest - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
As Charles admits his views have been an evolving piece of his life, as he started out a liberal. Today he is one of the most influential conservative journalists. But....his views and mine do not mirror each other. He seems to favor beltway politics, much more than a constitutional believer should.

This isn't a new book full of new ideas, this is a new book filled with a collection of his writings over a long period of time. While he referenced Reagan in his evolution to conservatism, he isn't nearly as principled as Reagan was. Reagan showed for a period of decades how his views were not only consistent, they were strengthened over time. Charles....while very intelligent and thoughtful, often has quick dismissal of those who disagree with him.

So....why 5 stars. Because he is that good. He isn't nearly as polarizing as other conservative thinkers, and his voice carries great weight. Give Things That Matter a read, it deserves to be read. You may not agree with some items from 2005 or maybe 1995, but you will often nod in agreement.
