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.

Against Monopoly -- New Blog

A new blog devoted to the case against "intellectual monopoly" (a.k.a. intellectual property) is now in operation. Against Monopoly is a group blog that includes, among others, David K. Levine and Michele Boldrin, authors of the forthcoming book Against Intellectual Monopoly (see draft here). I'll be posting there as well. See you there!
