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.

First, Do No Harm

Much harm has come from conflating "isolationism" (better: noninterventionism) with unilateralism.

A common place against noninterventionism to claim that if the US had not intervene in the second world war, then we will all be speaking german now. Therefore, the US must throw bomb the whole world and kill all muslims and all communists, or else. This is irrefutable logic.
