The Opinionated Middle Ground, by John Scott Cowan

From Professor Emeritus Raymond Pfieffer's book review....

"Perhaps the most important public question of our time is how to resolve the opposing persuasions so famously dividing our Western societies. To this end, John Cowan, a lifelong navigator of the Thousand Islands, has a significant contribution to make in this articulate book of his well-informed essays and reflections. His goal throughout is to promote a more accurate grasp of a myriad of broad concerns to those of us striving to understand and engage in the public discussions of our day.

Throughout these illuminating discussions, Cowan writes in a straight-forward manner, avoiding euphemisms and obfuscation, drawing distinctions, and explaining in detail the facts that one must know to be able to seek middle ground in some of the major issues of the complex, confusing world that is ours, today."
