Newt Gingrich biography

Newton Leroy Gingrich, commonly known as Newt Gingrich, was born on June 17, 1943, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. He is an American politician, historian, and author who played a significant role in shaping the political landscape of the United States in the late 20th century. Gingrich earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in history from Emory University in 1965 and went on to complete a master's and a doctorate in European history at Tulane University. Before entering politics, Gingrich taught history at the University of West Georgia.

Newt Gingrich's political career took off when he was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1978, representing Georgia's 6th congressional district. A Republican, Gingrich quickly rose through the ranks within the party, gaining a reputation as a dynamic and articulate speaker. In 1994, he led the Republicans to a historic victory in the midterm elections, resulting in the GOP gaining control of the House for the first time in 40 years. Gingrich became the 50th Speaker of the House, a position he held from 1995 to 1999. As Speaker, Gingrich was a key architect of the Contract with America, a set of conservative policy proposals that contributed to the Republican Party's success in the 1994 elections. His leadership during this period was marked by efforts to balance the federal budget, welfare reform, and a commitment to smaller government.

In 1998, during his second term as Speaker, Gingrich resigned from Congress after the Republican Party lost seats in the midterm elections. His resignation marked the end of his speakership. Following his departure from Congress, Gingrich remained active in public life as a political commentator, author, and consultant. He ran for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012 but was not successful. Throughout his career, Gingrich has been known for his ideas on reforming government, his emphasis on conservative values, and his role in shaping the Republican Party's agenda during a crucial period in American politics.

Newt Gingrich's impact on American politics extends beyond his specific policy initiatives; he is often recognized for his role in reshaping the political landscape and contributing to the development of the modern Republican Party. His ideas and approach to governance continue to be discussed and analyzed within the context of American political history.


To Renew American

Gingrich draws on his command of American history to describe how the American public can renew our civilization.

The Speaker of the House of Representatives presents his design for an economic, political, cultural, and educational renewal of America that emphasizes personal motivation and faith.

Newt Gingrich has become a highly controversial person in the American poitical arena. Leading his party into the first Republican domination of both houses of the Congress in 40 years, Gingrich represents a turning point in national priorities and policy. In this book, Gingrich outlines his social and political philosophy, a manifesto that proposes a radical change in policy-making to counteract the decay of American civilization.

Gettysburg - Gettysburg Series Book 1

The Battle of Gettysburg has become the great "what if" of American history. Gettysburg unfolds an alternate path and creates for General Robert E. Lee the victory he might have won. Full of dramatic battle scenes, military strategy, and captivating period details, Gettysburg stands as a remarkable entry in the pantheon of Civil War literature and as a vivid novel of the realities of war.

The Civil War is the American Iliad. Lincoln, Stonewall Jackson, Grant, and Lee still stand as heroic ideals, as stirring to our national memory as were the legendary Achilles and Hector to the world of the ancient Greeks. Within the story of our Iliad one battle stands forth above all others: Gettysburg.

Millions visit Gettysburg each year to walk the fields and hills where Joshua Chamberlain made his legendary stand and Pickett went down to a defeat which doomed a nation, but in defeat forever became a symbol of the heroic Lost Cause. As the years passed, and the scars healed, the debate, rather than drifting away has intensified. It is the battle which has become the great "what if," of American history and the center of a dreamscape where Confederate banners finally do crown the heights above the town.

The year is 1863, and General Robert E. Lee and his Army of Northern Virginia are poised to attack the North and claim the victory that would end the brutal conflict. But Lee’s Gettysburg campaign ended in failure, ultimately deciding the outcome of the war.

Launching his men into a vast sweeping operation, of which the town of Gettysburg is but one small part of the plan, General Lee, acting as he did at Chancellorsville, Second Manassas, and Antietam, displays the audacity of old. He knows he has but one more good chance to gain ultimate victory, for after two years of war the relentless power of an industrialized north is wearing the South down. Lee's lieutenants and the men in the ranks, embued with this renewed spirit of the offensive embark on the Gettysburg Campaign that many dream "should have been." The soldiers in the line, Yank and Reb, knew as well that this would be the great challenge, the decisive moment that would decided whether a nation would die, or be created, and both sides were ready, willing to lay down their lives for their Cause.

An action-packed and painstakingly researched masterwork by Newt Gingrich and William Forstchen, Gettysburg stands as the first book in a series to tell the story of how history could have unfolded, how a victory for Lee would have changed the destiny of the nation forever. This is a novel of true heroism and glory in America's most trying hour.

Winning the Future - A 21st Century Contract With America

According to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, America currently faces five threats that could undermine, if not eliminate, the United States if immediate steps are not taken to correct them. The threats as he sees them are Islamic terrorists and rogue dictatorships armed with nuclear or biological weapons; the removal of God from American public life; a loss of patriotism and sense of America's history; a decline in economic supremacy because of poor science and math education; and the increasing budgetary burden of Social Security and Medicare. To tackle these problems, Gingrich offers his "21st Century Contract with America," which he outlines in great detail in this bold and thought-provoking book. His updated contract, which comes a decade after the original Republican Contract with America that marked the high point of Gingrich's national power, calls for a dramatically simplified tax code that favors savings and investment; government investment in science and technology, particularly regarding space, energy, and the environment; transforming Social Security into personal savings accounts; overhauling the civil justice system to reduce the burden of lawsuits; and updating the federal government, including the privatization of some functions, so that it moves at the speed and effectiveness of the information age. And that's just the beginning. He also calls for tripling the size of America's intelligence community, reforming its election system, developing a more intelligent health care system that creates jobs and increases quality of life, and balancing the federal budget.
Gingrich believes that this ambitious agenda can be accomplished, but only if it receives grassroots support. The entrenched political system, with its lobbyists, bloated bureaucracies, and the complicity of the media, is too self-serving to fix itself, he stresses. Concise and clearly presented, Winning the Future is long on specifics and short on rhetoric, and it succeeds as a springboard for political discourse. Gingrich's aim is clearly to inspire citizens to take responsibility for the county's direction by demanding more of their government and their leaders.

In the twenty-first century, America could be destroyed.
The dangers are manifold: Terrorism. Judges who think they’re God (and who are anti-God). Rising economic challenges from China and India. Immigrants and young Americans who know little about American history and values. Can America survive? Yes, says Newt Gingrich, and we as Americans can do more: We can create a safer, more prosperous, and healthier America for our children and grandchildren. How? By enacting a 21st Century Contract with America.

When he was Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich issued his first Contract with America. What was the result? Sweeping reform that shocked Washington and spurred an economic recovery for the nation, including: the first major tax cut in sixteen years; real, lasting welfare reform; and four years of balanced budgets. But the challenges now are even starker, and Newt is back with a new plan for American greatness.

The challenges of the 21st Century are great, says Newt Gingrich, but so are the opportunities. The decisions we make over the next four years will determine our future. And no book can be more important for making the right choices than Newt Gingrich’s national bestseller Winning the Future: A 21st Century Contract with America.
