In National Review, Yuval Levin, author, lecturer and director of Social, Cultural, and Constitutional Studies at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), offers a ringing endorsement for a new book by Benjamin Storey and Jenna Silber Storey, professors in Furman University’s Department of Politics and International Affairs. Levin, a frequent guest for the Tocqueville Program at the university, says the book, “Why We Are Restless,” “… is an education in the irony and complexity of the modern quest for contentment, and in the pre-modern sources required for any understanding of how to actually achieve meaningful contentment.” Levin adds, “I can’t recommend it enough.”
