America's Counter-Revolution
The Constitution Revisited

From the back cover:

This book challenges the assumption that the Constitution was a landmark in the struggle for liberty. Instead, Sheldon Richman argues, it was the product of a counter-revolution, a setback for the radicalism represented by America’s break with the British empire. Drawing on careful, credible historical scholarship and contemporary political analysis, Richman suggests that this counter-revolution was the work of conservatives who sought a nation of “power, consequence, and grandeur.” America’s Counter-Revolution makes a persuasive case that the Constitution was a victory not for liberty but for the agendas and interests of a militaristic, aristocratic, privilege-seeking ruling class.

An Antiwar Column to See

David Henderson, the economist and my friend, writes an excellent column on Antiwar.com. I’m a little behind, but his Nov. 28 column, "Adam Smith's Economic Case Against Imperialism," is worth reading.

P.S: Also check out "Who Is 'We'?"
