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.

A-seminaring I Will Go

My blogging may be spotty over the next ten days. I'm off to Tbilisi, Georgia, and Yerevan, Armenia, to lecture at Foundation for Economic Education (FEE) seminars for students and businesspeople. I hope to have Internet access, so stay tuned. I also hope to have many opportunities to teach the Georgians and Armenians the virtues of America's enlightened patent and copyright laws--NOT!

Have fun! Radicalize the students for freedom and network with everyone else!

I'm partly Armenian, so this is especially cool. Talk about a neglected area of the world. Have fun!

Thanks! In college I had an Armenian friend--a great guy. I'm looking forward to the visit.
