This white paper is intended for an adult American who has no college degree, or who, having one, nevertheless senses a poverty of real education.

It consists of three parts. The first presents information about tools and sources. The second presents a curriculum of sorts that will plug gaps and greatly improve a person’s knowledge and understanding of “the liberal arts.” The third section contains my brief recommendations regarding general education for adults who wish to wade into sustained courses of study in various subjects. Each of these three sections stands on its own and could be read profitably without the other two.

I write for white Americans who want to know their heritage. Although much of this paper might help a nonwhite reader, his needs and interests are distinct from ours, and only someone dedicated to a nonwhite’s particular culture will be able to address his needs as strategically as I have done here for my own people.
