Life After Television
In his visionary book George Gilder brilliantly and persuasively outlines the sweeping new developments in computer and fiber optic technology that spell certain death to traditional television and telephony. In their places, he argues, will emerge a new paradigm in which people-to-people communications give way to links among computers to be found in every home and office. The rise of the telecomputer will utterly transform the way we do business, educate or children, and spend our leisure time, and will imperil such large, centralized, top-down organizations as cable networks, phone companies, government bureaucracies, and multinational companies. The stultifying influence of the mass media will give way to the power of the individual and the spread of democracy

Men & Marriage
A chilling indictment on the state of the American family, and the recent drive to deny the fundamental differences between the sexes, Men and Marriage is "an outstandingly important and well-argued book, strangely moving in its combination of scholarly dilligence, common sense, courage, and devotion to the res publica of human civilization."--National Review.

Taking the reader inside the tiniest computer chips as well as the greatest minds of Silicon Valley, George Gilder explores the unrecognized technological and entrepreneurial revolution we are now experiencing, one which is creating unprecedented opportunities for business and technology. Microcosm contains vivid accounts of the latest inventions and revealing portraits of the leading scientists, engineers, and entrepreneurs at the frontiers of knowledge.

The Meaning of the Microcosm
" In The Meaning of the Microcosm, George Gilder introduces us to some of the inventors and their innovations that are building America's future in the Digital Age. Gilder brings to life in an easy to understand way often complex technologies. He explains what is driving the fundamental change in the way we live and the way we work." --Steve Forbes

Recapturing the Spirit of Enterprise
George Gilder has brought his classic Spirit of Enterprise up to date for the 1990s, featuring four new chapters. With compelling portraits of individuals who defy convention to originate the products that fire a growing economy, Gilder illustrates how entrepreneurs confront the bested interests within government and big business that demoralize and deter the heroes of commerce. Recapturing the Sprit of Enterprise delivers and ardent message: Entrepreneurs must be freed to do what only they can do

Speaking Of George Gilder
Finally, a Gilder book for those of us who want to get right to the point!

From tapes, transcripts, and corporate conclaves, you get the SPOKEN wit and wisdom of George Gilder - on money and morals, technology and telecom. It's all here, and it's easy to use.

A little over a third of Speaking of George Gilder consists of speeches and a previously unreleased 12,000-word interview. The rest is quotes - mainly short ones - organized "topically."

And this is NOT a rework of George's books and magazine articles. Even George's most loyal readers will not have seen most of what's in this book.

That's because the contents of Speaking consist overwhelmingly of his SPOKEN words - from magazine interviews, radio and TV appearances, and remarks to corporate and academic groups.

Speaking is comprehensive yet concise, deep while still digestible. It is the ONLY way you can sample ALL of George Gilder's ideas and recommendations - simply and easily.

Visible Man
A forthright, unvarnished portrait of life and struggle for young African-American men in the inner city. Decrying the lack of vision in welfare reform, George Gilder asserts that whatever the problems of young African-American men today, invisibity is no longer among them.

Wealth and Poverty
George Gilder's Wealth and Poverty, and international best-seller when it was published in 1981, now returns with a new introduction by the author. Gilder takes on the crucial problem of contemporary society: how to increase prosperity and curtail poverty. Only unfettered entrepreneurship, he argues, provides the economic vigor and opportunity that are the hope of the poor.
