Conservative author Dinesh D’Souza to speak at ISU

TERRE HAUTE — Conservative author Dinesh D’Souza will take the stage Jan. 23 at Indiana State University’s Tilson Auditorium in conjunction with the University Speakers Series to discuss “Islam vs. the West: A Clash of Civilizations.”

His presentation, which begins at 7 p.m., is being co-sponsored by the College of Arts and Sciences and WFIU.

A former policy analyst in the Reagan White House as well as a writer and scholar, D’Souza quickly became known as a major influencer on public policy through his writings. His first book, “Illiberal Education (1991),” publicized the phenomenon of political correctness in America’s colleges and universities and became a New York Times bestseller for 15 weeks. It has been listed as one of the most influential books of the 1990s.

His 1997 book, “Ronald Reagan: How an Ordinary Man Became an Extraordinary Leader,” was the first book to make the case for Reagan’s intellectual and political importance.

“The Virtue of Prosperity: Finding Values in an Age of Techno Affluence (2000)” explored the social and moral implications of wealth.

In 2002, D’Souza published his New York Times bestseller “What’s So Great About America,” which was critically acclaimed for its thoughtful patriotism.

His 2003 book “Letters to a Young Conservative” has become a handbook for a new generation of young conservatives inspired by his style and ideas.

“The Enemy at Home,” published in 2006, stirred up a furious debate both on the left and the right. It became a national bestseller and was published in paperback in 2008, with a new afterword by the author responding to his critics.

In recent years D’Souza has been a forceful defender of Christianity. “What’s So Great about Christianity” not only explained the core doctrines of the Christian faith, it also explained how the freedom and prosperity associated with Western Civilization rest upon the foundation of biblical Christianity.
