A Century Turns Review

A Century Turns by William J. Bennett takes a look back at recent American History and its key players. It asks you to think about what direction we, as Americans, are heading. The book shares such events such as the 1988 Presidential election, the fall of the Berlin Wall and election of America’s first black president.

About the Author:

William J. Bennett was very active in President George H.W. Bush’s presidency. Mr. Bush made him Drug Czar in 1988. Mr. Bennett has written or edited 18 other books, including The Death of Outrage, Our Sacred Honor, The De-Valuing of America: The Fight for Our Culture and Our Children and the New York Times bestseller America: The Best Last Hope.


Personally, I loved this book. There was a lot that I never knew about our history that I was excited to read about. It brought back a lot of memories for me with the 1988 election between President George H.W. Bush and Michael Dukakis. It really was good reading and puts a light on has happened with our government and where we are headed.
