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.

Shameless Plug

John Stossel was interviewed in the Christian Science Monitor on Friday. Asked what he reads, he said, in part:
I certainly am reading Reason, Forbes, National Review, The New Republic, and The American Prospect. I read The Freeman [published by The Foundation for Economic Education]. I particularly like the writing of Sheldon Richman, who's the editor, and Walter Williams, who is always terrific.
The full interview is here.

How cool. Must feel nice. By the way, I saw your brief plug of Kevin Carson in the new Liberty. Nice to see him mentioned in print.

Thanks. I want as many libertarians as possible to read Kevin's book.

Kevin Carson said...

Thanks again for the plug, Sheldon.

And it's nice that Stossel's finally said something I can agree with.
