Toward Excellence in Education: Thomas Jefferson was proudest of his creation of the University of Virginia. In his spirit, we would do well to revitalize the arts, humanities, and social sciences before we succumb to a material world run by robots and computers. Our youth should be encouraged to seek out what they love to do, not blindly go after money. They must also be encouraged to try to make a difference

Turning America Around at Home and Abroad:The Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius believed that moral courage was the greatest virtue, without which all other virtues were worthless. Dr. Stoessinger believes that, in our post 9/11 world, this statement will remain profoundly true. He will share his insights from the Holocaust on how courage does not come naturally, but can be an acquired virtue.

Terrorism Against Civilization: Reflections of a Holocaust Survivor: Dr. Stoessinger believes that history points to an honorable exit strategy from Iraq, whereby the United States would depart with a sense of accomplishment. His 9th edition of "Why Nations Go to War" has enjoyed high praise from officers in the U. S. Marine Corps.
