MANORVILLE, N.Y. - April 14, 2020 - PRLog -- BEHIND ENEMY LINES: CONSERVATIVE COMMUNIQUES FROM LEFT-WING NEW YORK serves up a wide-ranging collection of columns and essays from Ray Keating. These essays cover politics, economics, faith, history, trade, New York, foreign affairs, immigration, pop culture, business, sports, books, and more.
Keating is a longtime newspaper and online columnist, economist, policy analyst, and novelist. Some of his latest columns can be read at www.KeatingFiles.com.
In these often confusing and contradictory times, Keating describes his brand of conservatism as traditional, American and Reagan-esque, firmly rooted in Judeo-Christian values, Western Civilization, the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, and essential ideas and institutions such as the Christian Church, the intrinsic value of each individual, the role of the family, freedom and individual responsibility, limited government, and free enterprise and free markets.
There's a great deal to enjoy, learn from, agree with, get annoyed by, appreciate, reflect on, roll your eyes over, and argue with in this book that offers perspectives on where we are today, where we've been, and where we might be headed.
Keating said, "After writing weekly or regular columns and essays for more than thirty years (my rough estimate is that I've written more than 8,000 columns, essays and analyses over this period – yikes!), I thought it would be difficult to sort through what makes sense, and what doesn't, to include in a collection of these musings. But it turned out not to be all that difficult. The simple, primary question was: Does this article, in some way, pass the relevance test today no matter when it happened to be written?"
Keating added, "Trust me, far too many columns and essays that I've written wound up holding little relevance beyond the week or month in which they were penned and published. The pieces that I've included in this book – ranging from pieces published in the 1990s to March 2020 – hopefully possess staying power. My ultimate hope is that readers will find this book informative and engaging, no matter where they might be coming from on the philosophical and political spectrums."
