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.

Andrea Rich, RIP

The libertarian movement lost a giant this week, Andrea Rich, age 79, after a long battle with cancer. Working mostly behind the scenes, she accomplished more for the advancement of individual liberty than dozens of others combined. Andrea epitomized the strong, energetic, indefatigable, smart, principled, and entrepreneurial human being. She was also a long-time friend. I was honored to work with her on several fronts: the Foundation for Economic Education, Laissez Faire Books, the Libertarian Party, the Thomas Szasz Award for Outstanding Contributions to the Cause of Civil Liberties, and more. She was one of the best people I've ever known. My deepest condolences to her husband, Howard Rich.

She will be badly missed.
