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.

"Mirror Image of Hitler"

"The Law of Return is an apologetic law. It is the mirror image of Hitler. I don't want Hitler to define my identity."
--Avrum Burg, former Speaker of the Israeli Knesset, interviewed in Haaretz, June 24

The entire interview is worth reading.
