Conservative talk radio's fastest-growing superstar is also a New York Times bestselling phenomenon: the author of the groundbreaking critique of the Supreme Court, Men in Black, and the deeply personal dog lover's memoir Rescuing Sprite, Mark R. Levin now delivers the book that characterizes both his devotion to his more than 5 million listeners and his love of our country and the legacy of our Founding Fathers: Liberty and Tyranny is Mark R. Levin's clarion call to conservative America, a new manifesto for the conservative movement for the 21st century.
In the face of the modern liberal assault on Constitution-based values, an attack that has steadily snowballed since President Roosevelt's New Deal of the 1930s and resulted in a federal government that is a massive, unaccountable conglomerate, the time for re-enforcing the intellectual and practical case for conservatism is now. Conservative beliefs in individual freedoms do in the end stand for liberty for all Americans, while liberal dictates lead to the breakdown of civilized society -- in short, tyranny. Looking back to look to the future, Levin writes "conservatism is the antidote to tyranny precisely because its principles are our founding principles." And in a series of powerful essays, Levin lays out how conservatives can counter the liberal corrosion that has filtered into every timely issue affecting our daily lives, from the economy to health care, global warming, immigration, and more -- and illustrates how change, as seen through the conservative lens, is always prudent, and always an enhancement to individual freedom.
As provocative, well-reasoned, robust, andinformed as his on-air commentary, Levin's narrative will galvanize readers to begin a new era in conservative thinking and action. Liberty and Tyranny provides a philosophical, historical, and practical framework for revitalizing the conservative vision and ensuring the preservation of American society.

It's obvious those that speak of Thomas Jefferson's and Alexander Hamilton's letters have never read them, as the two men were polar opposites of what their "intentions" for the country were. The reviewer is right about one thing, our current government in no way even closely resembles the intentions of either the Federalists nor the Jeffersonian-Republicans, much in part to the ever expanding socially spending federal government, exactly what Levin speaks out about. Anyone with any sense of history wouldn't use the writings of Jefferson or Hamilton to discredit this book.Quite a few reviews for a book that hasn't even been released yet.by Anonymous

Goes to prove Mr. Levin's point about the tyranny of the left since they are trying to acts as if they have read a book that hasn't even hit the shelfs yet. I guess this book will be number one at their book burning party.
