“What books should I be reading? Where do I start for a well-rounded education?”
If that sounds like something you’ve wondered about, then you’ve come to the right place.
These days it is harder to get the well-rounded education you deserve. Core ideas behind the American Founding and Western civilization have been driven out of too many classrooms.
But imagine you could still learn these essential principles. Imagine you had access to great ideas and books not on the typical syllabus, and to mentors to guide you in your intellectual journey.
The good news is you can have all that.
Many people turn to the Intercollegiate Studies Institute (ISI) for just these reasons. Eastern University seniors Emmalee Moffitt and Wayne Brown recently said, “What drew us to ISI was its commitment to exploring ideas that are so often overlooked—or simply attacked—in modern academia.”
And the question we get from students more often than any other is “What should I be reading?”
We’ve published hundreds of books at ISI, but here are 11 that stand out as introductions to Western civilization, the American experience, conservative thought, and economics. We believe in the power of these books to enlighten and educate. That’s why we’re making them all available to you as free downloads.
