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.

I really respect what Daniel McCarthy is doing at The American Conservative.

Sheldon, I fear that you are casting pearls amongst swine. Conservatives at their core are statist and do not come to free market or limited government ideas in any principled manner but only in response to government's recent embrace of pluralism. They are racist and illiberal in nature and this is I believe what makes the broad libertarian project untenable.
