In this New York Times bestselling book, Robert H. Bork, our country's most distinguished conservative scholar, offers a prophetic and unprecedented view of a culture in decline, a nation in such serious moral trouble that its very foundation is crumbling: a nation that slouches not towards the Bethlehem envisioned by the poet Yeats in 1919, but towards Gomorrah. Slouching Towards Gomorrah is a penetrating, devastatingly insightful exposé of a country in crisis at the end of the millennium, where the rise of modern liberalism, which stresses the dual forces of radical egalitarianism (the equality of outcomes rather than opportunities) and radical individualism (the drastic reduction of limits to personal gratification), has undermined our culture, our intellect, and our morality. In a new Afterword, the author highlights recent disturbing trends in our laws and society, with special attention to matters of sex and censorship, race relations, and the relentless erosion of American moral values. The alarm he sounds is more sobering than ever: we can accept our fate and try to insulate ourselves from the effects of a degenerating culture, or we can choose to halt the beast, to oppose modern liberalism in every arena. The will to resist, he warns, remains our only hope.

The purpose of this study was to explore further the phenomenon of relational aggression to better understand factors that are associated with and might contribute to female adolescent aggressive (bullying) behavior. Specifically, this study developed a demographic profile of girls who participate in aggressive behavior. This quantitative, descriptive study was a secondary analysis of data that were collected in the Health Behavior in School-Aged Children (HBSC) survey conducted in the United States during the 2005-2006 school years. The data for this study were obtained from the Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) database, the world's largest collection of digital social data. This study looked at the variables used to collect data about bullying behavior and what variable may attribute to that aggression. This study was further filtered to look at bullying behavior amongst females. The sample consisted of 4742 females who were nearly evenly distributed among grades 6th through 10th. Analysis of the data provided five major findings. The five major findings were used to develop a profile for girls who bully others. Female aggression in girls tends to build from 6th grade to a spike at 8th grade. Middle school aged girls who bully tend to have a lower satisfaction with their life and also with their family relationships. Girls who bully also tend to experience school related stress and alienation, as well as being more likely to be substance users. The findings of this research suggest the need for more awareness and education about female aggression and the need for bullying prevention programs that are better defined and address the gender specific needs of girls.

This collection of essays takes the reader on a psychological tour of the intense, wayward, violent, not a little crazy America of the 1960s. Surfers, students, deadheads and druggies; Joan Baez, Dean Martin, Howard Hughes and John Wayne - all emerge from Didion's gaze just that little bit weirder, that little bit more American. Joan Didion has also written Sentimental Journeys and The White Album.

In June 1973, Judge Robert Bork was plucked from a quiet life of academia at Yale University and planted in the tumultuous soil of constitutional crisis by a Nixon administration barreling toward collapse. From the ousting of Vice President Spiro Agnew to the discharge of the Watergate special prosecutor, an event known as the Saturday Night Massacre, Saving Justice offers a firsthand, insider account of the whirlwind of events that engulfed the administration during the last half of 1973 and the first few months of 1974. This important volume provides a revelatory look into the inner workings of the Justice Department during some of the most consequential months of the Nixon administration.

Judge Robert H. Bork will deliver the Barbara Frum Historical Lecture at the University of Toronto in March 2002. This annual lecture “on a subject of contemporary history in historical perspective” was established in memory of Barbara Frum and will be broadcast on the CBC Radio program Ideas. In Coercing Virtue, former US solicitor general Robert H. Bork examines judicial activism and the practice of many courts as they consider and decide matters that are not committed to their authority. In his opinion, this practice infringes on the legitimate domains of the executive and legislative branches of government and constitutes a judicialization of politics and morals. Should courts be used as a vehicle of social change even if the majority view weighs against the court’s ruling? And if we allow courts to make law, especially in a country like Canada where our Supreme Court judges aren’t even elected, then what does this mean for democratic government? “The nations of the West have long been afraid of catching the “American disease” — the seizure by judges of authority properly belonging to the people and their elected representatives. Those nations are learning, perhaps too late, that this imperialism is not an American disease; it is a judicial disease, one that knows no boundaries.” — Robert H. Bork, from Coercing Virtue From the Trade Paperback edition.
