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.

Remembering Karl Hess

Brad Spangler has posted a wonderful list of quotations from Karl Hess, picked up from this 2003 Gary Galles article on the Mises.com website. I am honored to have known Karl, and I learned much from him in the late 1960s and 1970s. He was the warmest person I’ve ever met. Get to know him through his writings.
