Book News Annotation:

Boaz (executive vice president, Cato Institute) collects approximately 100 brief essays, many originally written as op-eds, containing his thoughts on American politics and his advocacy for political libertarianism. He tackles a large range of issues over the course of the collection, including foreign policy, the coercive power of the state, abortion rights, economic policy, the two-party duopoly, the "war on drugs," privatization of social security and public broadcasting, tax cuts, and libertarian politics.

Synopsis:

Is it any wonder that Americans have become so dissatisfied with government today? Politicians have given us soaring federal spending, rampant violations of our constitutional rights, a futile war in Iraq, corruption, incompetence, and a growing nanny state. Now one of the leading libertarian critics of big government raises the flag of freedom. David Boaz takes on both liberals and conservatives who seek to impose their own partisan agendas on the whole country. He discusses the roots of American freedom, the growing libertarian vote in America, the arrogance of politicians, and everything from taxes and education to terrorism and the war on drugs. For the millions of Americans who don't fit the red-blue divide, who are fiscally conservative and socially liberal, who reject big-government conservatism and nanny-state liberalism, this book points the way to a new politics of freedom.
